April 1st: Jools Holland Presents – #StayHome and Learn Boogie Woogie Piano #WithMe
In these trying days with people stuck at home, Jools will be giving fun free piano lessons to those stuck for some inspiration.

Taking the very basics of his beloved boogie-woogie piano, Jools will break down various musical techniques for everybody from complete novice upwards.

Even those bereft of a keyboard can still take part as Jools suggests: "If you donít have a piano, get Dad's shirt or Mum's tablecloth when they are not looking and draw piano keys on it and practice silently".

Lesson number 2 has just gone live today here and Lesson 3 will be joining soon. You can preview it on Jools' very own Instagram @ jools.holland.official
