If you’d like an introduction to playing in a blues piano style that you can work through at your own pace, you might like my new piano video course! It’s a course of video tutorials that teach you to play the short piece Alone Again Blues through step-by-step lessons. It is suitable for adult beginners who maybe have a foundational knowledge of where the notes are on the keyboard and the treble and bass staves, up to intermediate learners.
I have organised the course into four video lessons that are around ten minutes each. I’ve also included a full video performance of the piece, an introduction, a PDF of the sheet music in an easy-to-read large score format, and a bonus lesson that explains the features of the piece that relate to the blues genre.
A few of my piano students love blues music and are interested in playing in that style, but didn’t know where to begin. I decided to write a set of beginner-friendly pieces that feature some of the characteristics of the blues. They are manageable for players in the early stages of learning, with satisfying results.
You can hear a performance of the piece below. The course can be downloaded from my Ko-fi shop, linked below.
