4 Steps to Learning How to Play Any Song on the Piano

1. Determining the melody - Melodies determine what chords will be played. If you can use your ear to figure out what notes are being played in the melody, you are 1/4 on your way to learning a song! More resources on learning how to determine melodies

2.Harmonizing the melody - Once you have figured out the melody (using some of my techniques on the resource page), it is time to harmonize it. This is simply choosing various chords to accompany the melody. There are several techniques and tricks to doing this. More resources on learning how to harmonize melodies

3. Altering Chords - This is the best part! Now that you have strategically figured out the melody to a song and have harmonized it, altering your chords to produce certain sounds is the next step. If you were playing gospel music, you would alter your chords differently than if you were playing classical or country music. More resources on altering chords

4. Listening - After you have determined the melody, harmonized the melody, and altered some of your chords, there are various techniques you can use to make sure that your song sounds right. More resources on listening techniques

I personally recommend "The Secrets to Playing Piano By Ear" 300-pg Course and through my relationship with Jermaine (the author of this course), I've been able to get him to throw in a few bonus items (3 additional piano software programs). He has taught literally thousands of musicians how to play the piano by ear. If you understood just half of what he discussed above, you'll definitely benefit from his 300-pg course. Click here to learn the secrets to playing absolutely any song on the piano in virtually minutes! I highly recommend it.

"Mighty to Save" is a contemporary Christian gospel and worship song written by Ben Fielding and Reuben Morgan.

 The rights to the song are registered for Hillsong Publishing. The song has been adopted as an occasional song of worship by many Evangelical churches.


The lyrics praise the might of Jesus as "The Hope of the Nation" and "Author of Salvation" and that he can move the mountains and that he conquered the grave (referring to his Resurrection). The bridge repeats the faith in him as Saviour:


"Mighty To Save"

Everyone needs compassion
A love that's never failing
Let mercy fall on me

Everyone needs forgiveness
The kindness of a Saviour
The hope of nations

[Chorus:]
Saviour he can move the mountains
My God is mighty to save
He is mighty to save
Forever author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave

So take me as you find me
All my fears and failures
Fill my life again

I give my life to follow
Everything i believe in
Now i surrender

[Chorus 2x]

Shine your light and let the whole world see
We're singing for the glory of the risen king Jesus [2x]

Dear Fellow Musician,

What if you could lock yourself in a room and get 4.5 hours of
ministry-focused instruction from the man behind many of your
favorite gospel albums?

Would that excite you?

Well, you're definitely in luck! Because I've found a resource
that'll uncover tons of contemporary gospel secrets from one of
the baddest gospel musicians in the industry today, Mr. Jason
White!

You'll get the opportunity to learn flavorful approaches,
chords, movements, patterns, "licks & tricks," and real songs
from Jason White, but not only that...

You'll learn the music ministry side of things too. This isn't
just for someone who wants to steal a bunch of chords and sound
good, although you'll get dozens upon dozens of chords and will
certainly sound 10 times better after devouring this course.
This is deeper than that though.
