Description

Piano With Willie offers lessons to all skill levels of piano players. Willie uses the Foundational / Fundational approach when creating his lessons. Build upon your technique and polish up your skills with our piano lessons. This lesson picks up where volume 1 left off and teaches you more advanced Blues techniques. You’ll learn the “common” shuffle and Jimmy Yancey grooves. I’ll also explain the triplet feel and how it is written.

You will learn the scales and rhythm needed to play common shuffle grooves. We will introduce 7 different shuffle grooves that you can incorporate into your Boogie style playing. 

Who is the target audience?
  • Not for students who are looking for a “quick fix” to learning the piano
