Fantastic! I teach music for a living, and presenting lessons in a well thought out manor is key to good results. It's always good for me to check out how other people teach. David is excellent.

I'm not a very good piano player. Guitar is my instrument. One thing I've really been struggling with is hand independence (I.e, the left hand and right hand play two completely different things). This video starts off with some pretty basic blues stuff that has turned out to be really good exercises for hand independence. Plus I am learning some basic blues piano riffs that are fun to play. So yes, this has been very helpful to me!!
