So I am sure some of you have noticed that keyboard players are using YouTube as a way of teaching keyboard skills.

Some of these I have found helpful; some seem to be a waste of time.

I suggest we create a list of the YouTube keyboard teaching sites that we have found helpful.

My nomination: Peter Martin's "Two-Minute Jazz Piano" (here: The videos are very short (2-4 mins.), but it is kinda like trying to get a sip of water from a firehose. Watching the video on diminished scales for improv started me on a years' long effort to learn and master diminished chords and scales.

Your suggestions.....
J.S. Bach Well Tempered Klavier
The collected works of Scott Joplin
Ray Charles Genius plus Soul
Charlie Parker Omnibook
Stevie Wonder Songs in the Key of Life
Weather Report Mr. Gone
