"After 3 years of trying various blues courses, Paddy Milner is by far the best teacher i have encountered. The course is great."
Bruce E
"This course is absolutely fantastic! Great for beginners upwards. Paddy is a fab teacher and communicator and brill musician."
All of Paddy's courses are the best courses about blues, boogie and New Orleans piano I've ever done. Thank you! I’m practising the whole day, and if he ever makes another course I'm buying it immediately!
This is truly the best piano course I have seen on this style of piano. Maybe I will actual get somewhere now.
