I’ve helped thousands of people to learn blues piano – let me help you!
My son bought the course for me as I did my classical grades years ago and have been plateauing for the last few years. It has been so refreshing to get back into playing the piano and learning a completely different style from what I am used to. David, Loughborough
I had a desire to learn to play the piano but didn't even know if it was possible anymore due to my age. I am so pleased with the course and I am now playing the piano with both hands. My family is blown away with what I have been able to learn at my age and in such a short time! Keith, Dudley
Learning the piano has always been on my bucket list - I'm quite music mad - and this course has given me a painless way of achieving one of my dreams. I hope you release more courses and take this further as I can't get enough of your videos! JJ, Bradenton
Hey, thank you very much to be in touch, yes, I absolutely loved doing the course. I still have some video piano lessons to do but it is fun it's always I wanted to learn! I'm a very big fan of all of this. Thanks. Georgia, Melbourne
I wasn't sure if this would work for me as I can read music to some extent and work in theatre where we create musicals but would it come naturally? I love the format of the course and am working through the lessons slowly. It is just amazing how quickly you can play something that people are impressed by. Kayleigh, Paisley
I bought the course for my 14 year old daughter who used to be interested in learning the piano. She passed her grade 2 but got bored. She absolutely loves it - thank you, you have really inspired her. Mrs E. Williams, St Austell
Hello there Martin, I bought the course as I was looking to start lessons after a few months of messing around on my keyboard! I could play a few chords but couldn't read music so I thought it would be perfect for me. It's been spot on, I feel like I have made great progress. Thanks for checking in. Conor, Waterford
I have always liked to have piano lessons. I'm complete beginners. I have been able to follow so far and I am very happy with what I can do now. Adalicia, Limoges
I always wanted to play the piano but I have autism so I didn't know if this would stop me. I love 50s music and my favorite is jerry lee lewis. I always wanted to play boogie woogie and now I can. I am really happy with the course and am working very hard on the final videos. Jack, Cork
Your blues piano teacher: Martin Carline
I have been playing the piano for over 25 years, and specialise in blues and improvisation.
I teach many different styles of music, from classical, to blues and boogie woogie, ballads, movie theme songs, Coldplay, Adele, and much more. Now, with my Learn Blues course, you can benefit from my lessons wherever you are in the world. My lessons have been designed for beginners so it doesn’t matter if you’ve never touched a piano before – or if you gave up when you were a child. Whatever your age or ability, you’ll find it easy to follow my simple, modular lessons which gradually build your skills – from a basic left hand right through to an advanced lick. If you’ve always dreamed of playing boogie woogie piano like Jerry Lee, Jools or Fats, now is your chance – you CAN do this!

In this snippet from one of my tutorials, I'm explaining one way you can play the left hand in the classic Fats Domino song, Blueberry Hill:
Start learning today!
Not only will you learn how to play that difficult left hand boogie woogie that you’ve always wanted to play, you will also learn how to start and end a song – allowing you to become the complete blues player!
Learn how to improvise
This course will also teach you to improvise and play without music. Again, no matter how difficult this may seem, by following this video course you will soon realise how easy it is.
Learning to improvise in the past has been extremely difficult. Why? Because it’s hard to find anyone that will teach it, and there just aren’t enough books out there that will show you.
You may also think that improvisation can’t be taught, and it’s just something that you can either do, or you can’t. Wrong, wrong, wrong!
Learning to improvise is a lot easier than you may think, and this video course will not only show you how, but will also give you the tools you need to continue improvising for the rest of your life. Once you can improvise, it’s like riding a bike – you won’t ever forget!
