  • December 24, 2011 Essential Piano Improvisation

    Ann Rabson has done a terrific job of teaching traditional blues and boogie piano styles. The DVD is a generous 140 minutes long and the pace is clear and unhurried. Written music is not included so the student will have to patiently transcribe from his computer if not possessed of...

    a very good memory. The music is substantial and genuine. With a bit of work one will be able to acquire a professional sound and enough material to get started on a successful blues career. A clear, overhead camera angle is used and Ann demonstrates at an easy to follow tempo. Ann's love and dedication to the blues shines through every moment of these lessons. This is the very best instruction DVD I own. Highly recomended.

  • March 14, 2011 Instructional Piano

    I purchased this DVD to learn some of the New Orleans Blues and barrelhouse music licks. This is one of the best instructional DVD's I have come across. Ann Rabson takes each tune and breaks it down into segments for each hand that allow you to learn note by...

    note the music she is presenting. She does fills, left hand base, right hand melody , solos, turnarounds and endings. This is a well thought out procuct and presented so that anyone can understand it. There is no lost time on the DVD as each segment follows a format designed to promote learning. I have been playing guitar for 51 years and use the piano to work out arrangements on the side. I've used a lot of books, cd's and DVD's to enhance learning -- This one is worth the money and I would recomment it without reservation. Bud.
