Blues-Boogie

Blues / Boogie

There are several examples of original blues or boogies that have been written by either Karen Pancoast or Howard Pancoast. Our students play these in their piano lessons from the books we have written.

Howard has long said that “any” song could be made into a blues or boogie. What you will find on this Blues and Boogie Piano page are examples of Howard or Karen turning some of the most famous old familiar songs into boogies and blues versions.

We wish we could include more modern songs, but we are unable to offer them for free download because of copyright considerations. However, you could use what we have done with these songs as a pattern to apply to any song you would like to play in the blues or boogie style.
