Blues Piano for Beginners

This is great. I wish that it came in regular book format, too, because not all my students have ipads or kindles. Is there a way to print out particular pages for them to study?

I Always Wanted to Learn This

I just love the way Mark Harrison teaches. He's so good at picking fun material and breaking it down into small, easy to learn segments.

I've admired other keyboard players pounding out these left hand patterns and now *I* can play them. It's very rewarding.

I now buy anything Mark Harrison writes without hesitation. He's my favorite music author hands down.
