Whether in a dance hall or a living room, there's nothing more infectious than good old-time rock 'n' roll. The late Bob Hoban's lively piano lesson will put you in the driver's seat and help you get the party rockin' with its hard-driving musical force.
Bob takes the piano styles of the first generation of rockers -- Jerry Lee Lewis, Fats Domino and others--and shows you how these pioneers came up with the rhythmic, blues-derived sounds that are still the basis for so much of today's popular music. With clarity and good humor, he introduces you to the basics, then teaches the slides, slurs, pushed notes, rolls, rhythm patterns, melodic figures, intros, endings and other devices that put power and attitude into the music.
Bob's deep knowledge of rock piano techniques will bring this unique style into focus for all players. By the time you've completed his easy, fun-filled course you'll be playing bass lines, licks, single-note leads and complete rock 'n' roll solos, and will be pounding out these sounds right along with the greats.
"Just a note to thank you for a job well done on the Rock 'n' Roll piano lesson. It's going to be a HUGE leap for me and my music." -- Marilyn Moss, California
