 1. Jermaine Griggs, 28, is a minister, musician, entrepreneur, and public speaker. Having grown   up in the inner city of Long Beach with just his mom and sister, he always envisioned life on the other side of the tracks. At the tender age of 16, he decided to focus on his passion and started Hear and Play Music, an instructional music company specializing in teaching piano by ear. With only $70, he bought the name HearandPlay.com and launched the company that would not only change his life but hundreds of thousands of musicians around the world through his books, dvds, software and training courses.

Twelve years later, over 2 million aspiring musicians download his online lessons every year and over 300,000 loyal students receive his regular newsletters. Having seen the site grow from a few students a month into an internationalmusician “hub,” helping millions of people (both free and paid) is nothing short of amazing — and constantly reminds Jermaine of his humble beginnings. He knows what it feels like to be on both sides of the track and also shares his story with entrepreneurs all over the world regularly.

He is married to his high school sweetheart of 12 years and they have three beautiful children: Jadyn (5), Layla (2), and their newest addition, Brendan. He is a graduate of University of California, Irvine, and currently resides in Orange County. (this is from his website) Read More

2. NOTE:

This brotha, a true pioneer, single-handedly changed the way music is taught. Through him, our techniques and methods of playing gospel is spreading throughout the world. Using the circle of fifths, a God given principle of how music works, and a topic not taught in music conservatories until the later years, he has transformed players of music around the world into imitators of our art, giving away what were secrets of our soul. I am not faulting him for this at all. I am pointing out that WE should be the benefactors of our art, our soul music. I want to see the gifted thrive, since music was taken out of most schools in this country.

Jermaine, with a soul of gold, offers affordable lessons in piano, organ, drums, guitar, and voice lessons for affordable prices. I am making no money by including him on this site. My goal is to create musicians among our people. According the the Quadrivium, the Greek instruction manual for a well rounded education, mathematics is the science, and music is the practical application of math. Math originated with the Africans, and today, Ivy League schools are in Africa learning the equations and principles of fractal mathematics. ddsharper
