Boogie Woogie and Blues music has always been a popular style amongst pianists, but it can be all too difficult to find interesting, effective and fun teaching methods - now you need not look any further! Discovering Boogie & Blues Piano by Wolfgang Wierzyk, for the first time available in English translation is the revised and expanded edition of the bestselling German title "Die Boogie & Blues" Methode" (SPL 1025). Taking you step by step through technical aspects of the playing style, as well as guidance in improvisation, historical information and recommendations for further listening, Discovering Boogie & Blues Piano is an ideal introduction to this style of music.

The book is accompanied by a CD recording of all exercises and pieces performed by the author.
