Pete Sears is one of the most creative and innovative players in Rock n Roll of my generation. He has wonderful intuition, finding just the right part for a song both melodically and rhythmically. Pete is always in the groove.

"Pete and I had many musical adventures together in the late 60s early 70s with Rod Stewart and the boys. Pete excelled on piano, organ, bass, you name it, he blended it!" --Ron Wood (The Rolling Stones)
Pete Sears brings an incredible knowledge of roots music to the table. Whether he is channeling Otis Span or creating his own genre, there is no finer keyboard player. The news is even better. Pete, unlike some artists, knows what he is doing and is a fine teacher. You can dance through the last fifty some years of roots keyboard sounds and Mr. Sears will show you every step! --Jorma Kaukonen(Jefferson Airplane, Hot Tuna)
Top Customer Reviews
Instruction is purportedly for beginners or intermediate players, but it's for anyone who wants to get confident and proficient at piano improvisation. Simple blues exercises encourage improv right away, something I haven't always found with lessons, where the student must go through rote scales and arpeggios ad nauseam before getting to anything that sounds like music. Scales are important, but fun, feeling and listening are also necessary.
The beauty of the instruction is the stressed importance of learning chords and exercises in as many keys as you can and noting the spatial relationships that allow for quick key transposition. Pete also encourages playing around with building chords in as many variations possible whenever you can. This promotes quick, creative thinking when improvising, rather than getting stuck in root positions and triads, like I had a problem with.
I'm a fairly solid player but can't always pick out the construction of fast licks on recordings. Here, Pete tells you what he's doing, then performs the concept where his playing can be viewed through a camera angle above. Because it's a DVD: if something confuses, you can watch it again.
Chord inversions and jazz voicings comprise rich arrangements. Scales and modes over chord progressions create a variety of moods. Everything but the time and hard work is in this package. You'll become great if you keep at it and follow Pete's thoughtful instruction.
I loved his expression, "let the music breathe". Make the music your own, don't copy him or anyone else he admonishes. As the Chinese say, ".... teach a man to fish and he'll feed himself for life." I think he does an admirable job all things given.
