Though the songs start out simply and a beginner could get a start with them, most of the video is for the fairly proficient player who wants to get some rhythm and licks to gospelize music. This gospel piano is much like boogie woogie piano and is a lot of fun.
The written booklets are helpful and clearly written. They just take practice.
I do wish that Dr. Ethel Caffie-Austin would put out a CD of her piano music. She's great.
This set is for intermediate to advanced players, and the only criticism I have of this set is that it isn't indicated anywhere on the packaging (or in promotion that I've seen), but that doesn't detract from the 5 stars it very richly deserves. A beginning pianist would probably not be ready to play the pieces in this set, but what they hey, if you are a beginner, buy it anyway, watch it and PRACTICE like mad to get up to the level to play this. This set will INSPIRE you to get your chops together! You will need to be able to play in octaves, and to play full chords spanning an octave in each hand. It is also recommended that you be familiar with at least seventh chords.
I enjoy this DVD so much. I play it everyday. I have to stop and replay the runs
but that's alright I'm getting it. Her style of playing don't need to die out. I wish I had
this a long time ago. I'm so happy with this DVD. I would love to meet her in person and
thank her for doing this for Homespun Video. Her style is what I grew up hearing in the Apostolic Church of Kentucky. I can't say enough about her.. I wish she would make another video. I've learned alot from her. I'm not that good, but If I stick with it, I believe I can get close to playing just like her. Again, she is the best.
Some hand independence and comfort with four-finger chords are pre-requisites to making the most of this, though you can use the DVD to learn these skills if you're patient and not afraid to practise hard. Caffie-Austin is a beautiful player and the video shows well what her talented fingers are up to. She has a wonderful voice and engaging persona too.
If you are unsure about your skills, or are just beginning, I recommend you start with something simpler like Bradley Sowash and Scott Houston's "The Next Step" before tackling this.
