If you already know how to play a lot of chords but you cannot play by ear or hear chords/chord progressions by ear, or if you don’t understand what or why you play what you play this is a great course option for you.

This course is meant for those who are ready to learn to understand how music works, to enhance their ability to substitute chords, and to understand what kind of fills and runs you can play because of what key you are in.

This course focuses on learning and understanding the Musical Roman Numeral System in-depth.  In the first six lessons, we are going to show you hundreds of chord movements and how to train your brain to recognize them by ear.

We are going to study not just the basic ii, iii, IV, V, vi and vii chords but also the #1, b3, #4, b6, b7 and ALL the different chords that can be used in-between.  In the last six lessons, we are going to show you HUNDREDS of chords and how to train your brain to recognize them by ear also.

This course focuses on teaching you ALL the chords that you need to know to play Gospel music…not just majors, minor, 7ths, and suspended 2 chords (we will go over these also).  We are going to teach you all the PHAT chords you need to know and WHERE to play them.  Then we are going to breakdown different fills, runs and scales you can use with these chords.  It will cover 9ths, 11ths, 13ths, augmented and diminished chords and everything in between.
