I know You like Blues. Blues improvisation and Blues riffs charm me as much as they charm you. Not for nothing Blues and Boogie Woogie are the highlights of every performance of Jazz bands.

Playing Blues magnificently and improvising suitably is quite difficult. That’s why you need some professional advice and practice.

In the «Blues-Master» course you will be able to take all steps to become a Blues musician.

After a few classes you can play some simple reefs with bass line. But if you invest all your power and energy to this course you can play like a professional blues musician!

All video lessons of the course provide keys with backlight and explanatory slides, so that you can understand the material fully. Media files attached to this course will guide you through software “Synthesia Game” and will drastically improve your skills. Not a single note will be missed, you can repeat any exercise or riff, or even combine both hands playing without notes.

Any kind of Blues will be available to you:

  • Slow and Spicy
  • Fast and Dynamic, such as Bebop
  • And of course the Groovy Boogie-Woogie

Studied music since 6 years old. Graduated from the School of Music in piano in 1994. While studying at the School of Music I hated to play the notes, so after the music school became interested in improvisation and free play on the piano. I worked with several teachers during my career as a musician.

Several years ago I realized that teachers around, can't contribute anymore, as a result, nearly 20 years devoted to the study of free improvisation and piano, of which nearly 5 years teaching.

Author of eight training courses for piano, several dozen video lessons of popular songs on Youtube channel, gaining hundreds of thousands views.
