Learn fun blues & soul solos to supplement your piano lessons! Blues & Soul Masters for Piano is a wonderful supplement to the student-level piano repertoire. It introduces you to colorful, fun-to-play pieces in a variety of blues and soul styles. Take a guided tour through the important styles of the blues and soul masters. You'll learn how they get their unique sound---while progressively arranged, original compositions give you a chance to try out these styles on your own. Accompanying every piece are listening suggestions, a biography of the artist who inspired it, and specially tailored preparatory exercises.
Blues & Soul Masters for Piano is recommended for students age 12 and older, but younger musicians can enjoy playing the pieces under the guidance of a teacher. The included CD demonstrates all the examples and allows you to play along (with solo keyboard or full band).
