I just went to YouTube and typed in jerry lee lewis piano lessons, and there are a number of videos there. One link is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eAURceD7Xsc
The company, Homespun Tapes, which has a website, has good DVDs with beginners lessons in rock and roll and blues, including one with good JLL riffs.
Good luck

There are several transcriptions available of boogie-woogie. One that comes to mind is "Bumble Boogie" - which I first learned as a 12 year old. The principles are the same for most styles. The left hand usually spans octaves and moves up and down the triad or works a standard pattern across a lesser range, again based on broken chords. The right hand for Jerry-Lee Lewis style is usually chords every eighth note throughout the 4/4 bar.

Have a look David Bennett Cohen's tapes from Homespun. He also books covering the same lesson. It's good stuff.
