If you're relatively new to the keyboard and/or wanting expand your proficiency of Blues & Barrelhouse style piano, I don't think you could do any better than these videos. Ann is a fabulous teacher! The songs she teaches are really fun to play. She teaches really cool and useful parts and riffs; and they don't sound "amateurish" at all to my ears. This is an overall excellent video series!! A side note: I did have a problem with one of the videos in Chrome. I told Tech Support and the said they were working on it. I switched to Firefox and had no issues.
