I'm sure is topic has been covered before, but I'd like an update. unused one really good site for years but there have been some changes that I don't like so I stopped. I'm not going to use a live person teacher...for various reasons.

Any recommendations? ..not just for one or two utube lessons but a comprehensive site. I'm still going to use irocku but that is rock and I'm looking for a jazz, gospel, blues site.

Following up: I used Piano With Willie for years...Willie Myette is a great teacher. He had a variety of prices fo r online lessons based on number of views per month. Since I rarely got online more than 15 times a month, I bought the least expensive price which was $15 per month. Had paid more before to get lesson downloads.

But his site has changed so much. He now has a flat rat of about $50 per month, no downloads, those cost extra, and before I quit, he had hired a teacher who was giving most of the lessons. Some students really liked him, but I had a hard time following him.

I really miss the old Willie. And I can't get my old rate back. Not sure I would want it other than to look at the older lessons. Don't like the new ones.

That second one is Bill's site, which is also extremely good. I would say the right place to start is Paul Abraham's site, then you can go on to some of Bill's more advanced stuff.

Hi Nikalette. This is beyond the scope of your question, but I thought of this while reading your post: Do you ever get together with other instrumentalists and jam? I've seen that most adult piano students learn some good techniques, but would go even farther if they applied those techniques by jamming with a fellow musician, like a bass player or saxophonist, on a weekly basis.
You've probably learned so much over the years from your teachers that you'd get really fluent by playing tunes on a regular basis, with a friend for inspiration. Lessons are necessary of course, but I've found that this is often the missing ingredient in people's musical lives. (Sometimes it's tough to find someone to play with, but it can be worth it in the long run.)

This is Paul Abrahams and it's great to be recommended. Although I teach privately I'm always urging my students to get out there and play. It's not that easy to find people just willing to jam or rehearse, let alone to find gigs, but no amount of teaching, books or online courses can substitute for interacting with other musicians. Even playing to backing tracks will only take you so far. Improvising is all about listening and reacting, and you need live players to do that. So I entirely agree with Ron. You can keep improving your technique, learn all the scales and modes, know what a tritone substitute is, but unless you seek out other musicians you will only progress so far.
