Product Overview


There’s no sound more thrilling than the walking bass notes and driving chords of traditional gospel piano, and there is no better way to learn it than from this Homespun Piano Masters video series.

Dr. Ethel Caffie-Austin, a formidable pianist, vocalist and educator, is steeped in the traditions and styles of the black church. She has a clear and concise teaching method and a desire to get you playing this heartfelt and inspirational music, even if you have never played it before.

Ethel teaches the basic melody of a hymn or spiritual, and then adds the chords and bass lines that will give the song a solid rhythmic foundation. Finally, by adding intros, runs, harmonies, fills and turnarounds, you’ll create a complete piano arrangement in true gospel style.

The well-known hymns and spirituals you’ll be playing include When the Saints Go Marching In, Standing in the Need of Prayer, Angels Keep Watching Over Me, Can't Nobody Do Me Like Jesus, What a Friend We Have in Jesus, Show Me The Way, Study War No More, Jesus is on the Mainline, Amazing Grace and other beloved gospel standards. Watch is today!
