Hear and Play with (and See!) Keyboard Virtuoso Jermaine Griggs

Aspiring musicians the world over know Jermaine Griggs as the whiz kid who helps them play like a pro – without having to read music.

So it’s no wonder that his BlogTalkRadio show, Hear and Play Time, became a sensation soon after launching last year.

The first note of “Mary Had a Little Lamb” is not the song’s key,” Jermaine points out.

"The first note of 'Mary Had a Little Lamb' is not the song’s tonic,” Jermaine points out.

Now fans can watch Jermaine in action, too.

“I just put a new ‘piano by ear’ video on YouTube,” the 25-year-old – who’s also a minister at the 2nd Corinthian Missionary Baptist Church in Long Beach, Calif, and author of The Secrets to Playing Piano by Ear – tells us.

“You’ll like it because it shows you an easy way to pick out the key of any song.”

Indeed it did.

We also enjoyed how Jermaine uses not only gospel classics in his lesson, but hits from other genres, like Elton John’s Can You Feel the Love Tonight and Michael Jackson’s Man in the Mirror.
