"How I Went From A Blues Piano Failure To A World Touring Pro"

If you want to be a great blues pianist and don't want to pay thousands of dollars for lessons then this will be the most important message you're ever going to hear.

Dear Piano Friend,

I was embarrassed.

I had just gone to a blues jam session and was laughed off the stage.

If you can picture the look of horror on my face. It was worse than you can imagine. 

You see, I had been trying to teach myself blues piano for 5 years. But it clearly wasn’t working.

I was playing the same old cliche licks. You know the ones that everybody’s heard 1000 times before?

My chords sounded flat.

My chops, my licks, my ear, my scales, and my improv were not where they needed to be either. Everything about my playing was lacking.

I was sick of sounding like an amateur and tired of feeling disorganized.

It got to the point where I was afraid to play in public. And I was scared I’d never be the player I dreamed of being.


Why Most Piano Players Fail

So, like most musicians I tried every solution I could think of. I tried the latest chords books, scale books, ear training books, play-alongs, ‘guru blues methods’ etc.

Even after trying all that different stuff guess what happened to my playing? It barely got any better! I was being pulled in 100 different directions and I was more confused than ever before.

It was incredibly painful. I hated the way I sounded and I knew I had to do something about it.

There had to a better way to learn blues piano right?


The Moment That Changed Everything

It was a cold Tuesday night when I met Blues Hall Of Fame legend Bruce Katz. I shared with him my pain and frustration. He must have saw something in me.

Bruce was only teaching at the Berklee College of Music at the time. So, very few students had the opportunity to even study with him.

And when he agreed to mentor me, my playing improved in ways I had only dreamed about!

So, for 2 years Bruce and I sat together. He revealed many of the secrets that helped transform me from essentially a blues piano failure to a world touring blues pianist.

I Couldn't Believe The Things That Happened

After studying with Bruce I moved to Chicago, and immediately started gigging 5 nights a week.

Within 4 years I was touring nationally.

A few years after that I was:

  • Touring around the world (14 different countries in 2 years)
  • Appearing on TV (NBC, ABC, & WGN)
  • Playing on radio (NPR & WLUP)
  • Even playing with Grammy Award Winners (Buddy Guy, Koko Taylor, etc.)

My transformation was amazing!

Sure, I put in the work in the practice room, but I wouldn’t have been able to do it without the things I learned from Bruce.


Learning From A Blues Hall Of Fame Pianist Is Rare

The year after I left Berklee, Bruce got the gig touring with the legendary Greg Allman.

(Yes, the guy who started the Allman Brothers!)

So, with a busy touring schedule he wasn’t available to teach anymore. Period!

Short supply went to no supply!

This was very bad news for blues piano education.

Time To Unlock A Lifetime Of Blues Piano Secrets

Knowing that all those blues piano secrets were now essentially ‘locked away’ just killed me.

For years nobody could access them. So, I knew I had to do something about it. I wanted to share what I had learned with as many people as possible.

So, this summer, I flew Bruce to our studio in Chicago.

Together we created a brand new DVD program to help students learn amazing blues & soul jazz piano...using the same template I used to achieve blues piano success.

And the best part is I personally guarantee it will work for you.
