Virtual Piano Teacher
David K. Johnson | Deerfield, Massachusetts | 01/02/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"WB is a fine pianist and educator. His three volume set supplies the self-motivated, intermediate pianist with enough instruction in jazz theory, reharmonization, improvisation, comping, soloing, etc., to last a lifetime. Given the various costs of private lessons, a bargain at many times the price."
Lots of good information

"This DVD has a lot of really great information. He starts with the basics of scales, finger positions, triads and inversions. He is excellent with putting this information into the context of jazz playing. I'm only 1/2 way through the first viewing, but am really enjoying it. The pace moves very quickly. A true beginner on the piano would find this too advanced. But someone who has a little music theory and piano experience would be comfortable. Highly Recommended."
Nice Touch!

"I've always been a fan of video presentations. Warren's work is one of those that keeps you involved and interested. His development of the ideas is a nice step-by-step approach to improving one's facility as a performer. You can't help but improve your technique and musicial knowledge with Warren's work. Well done!"

"Nice playing, but very poor explanations. A beginner would be totally lost. Starts with extremely basic point or two, then, "I assume you know chord structure..." Then says that he is embellishing, and while it is nice and sounds good, doesn't explain what the embellishment is, very frustrating. Nice guy sitting at the piano, laid back conversation. I wish I could say something better, but I can't. I could also rant about it, but I'll hold back on that also...."
