Great reference book beside the explanations already given in the course, that gives you the possibility to repeat the theory at your ease or (even if you’re not online) to quickly consult your eBook if you have a question about music theory/reading notes.

LEARN BLUES PIANO IN A FUN WAY, AND FORGET ABOUT BORING EXERCISES THAT ARE THE TRADEMARK OF TRADITIONAL PIANO COURSES
Of course, scales are important to know, but just endlessly running up and down the scales is not a very fun way of learning the piano or keyboard.
That’s why in this blues piano course, you’re accompanied by a whole band while practicing the scales:
In this way, even practicing scales becomes a pleasure.
And chords? Well, all the chords are practiced in blues progressions, and also here, you’re accompanied by a whole band.
