Each piece provides a good basis for learning contemporary playing techniques, including as they do, the Twelve-Bar Blues form, the Blues Scale notes, Swing Timing and a variety of Boogie-Woogie styles. Graded into two sections, for beginners and for intermediate level pianists, each section contains one blues piece, three boogie pieces in major keys and two in minor keys. Various methods of writing the swing feel have been employed for experience in the style. They are especially good for building up left-hand technique, are easily accessible as they require no awkward hand position changes and above all are fun to play. Margaret Brandmans publication, gives students a wonderful choice of twelve original blues and boogie-woogie compositions. Also included is a brief history and analysis to give students a background of these styles... This is an excellent publication which, I am sure, teachers and students will enjoy. -June Mclean, AUSTRALIAN MUSIC TEACHER Magazine, Vol 3 No 5 1994
