Are these the same lessons found on PianoWithWillie?

No. The lessons at Play Blues Piano are unique to this site and are not found anywhere else on the Internet.

How Do Online Lessons Work?

Once you become a member of you will have immediate access to our lesson library. You can start at the beginning and work your way through each lesson in sequential order. Or you can jump right into the lesson that will teach you the song you want to play. These lessons have been created with an intermediate level player in mind. There are exercises to help you better familiarize yourself with chords and rhythms but you do need a base knowledge of this in order to make the most of these lessons.

Unlimited 24/7 Access

Need to watch a lesson over and over again to get every note? Not a problem. All memberships come with unlimited streaming to all piano lessons. This means you can view the lessons 24/7 without restriction. Best of all, you can watch from any Internet-enabled device. Watch a lesson on your phone then pick up where you left off on your tablet or home computer!
