THE LATIN PIANIST
is a music software program
containing over fifty tunes, played on a MIDI keyboard by top Latin pianist Rebeca Mauleón-Santana.
Latin Piano stylings by Rebeca
We've recorded popular Latin pianist Rebeca Mauleón-Santana (editor of
Sher Music's Latin Real Book) playing over 50 tunes in a wide variety of Latin Piano
styles. The on-screen piano keyboard shows you exactly what the pianist is playing. Slow
down the piece or step through it chord by chord. Learn the music "note for
note" by watching the notes on screen, or load the MIDI files into your favorite
programs for further study.
The program includes on-screen music notation & chord symbols (Windows version
only). All pieces are complete performances
artistically played, recorded & saved as Standard MIDI files.
CD quality sound
All the pieces have been recorded "in real time" on an 88
note weighted MIDI piano keyboard. They are never quantized or step recorded.
You'll hear the music playing with CD-quality through your sound card
or MIDI system, just as if the pianist was in your home.
Wide variety of Latin Piano styles

styles, including Conga, Cumbia, Cuban Salsa, Latin Jazz, Samba, Guaracha, Brazilian,
