Hard Copy of Volume 1 Now Available

Beyond Salsa Piano - The Cuban Timba Piano Revolution - by Kevin Moore - Vol. 1The first volume of my Beyond Salsa Piano series is now also available as a full color paperback book on! Note that this is the book only. The audio files are only available at LPM, which also sells a digital-only version of the book for a reduced price.

I've updated the new status page accordingly.

Volume 2 will be available in digital format before Christmas and hard-copy in January (I hope - amazon is changing to a better system and I'm waiting for that before uploading more volumes).

In the meantime, here's the online version, which includes audio and notation for excerpts from the first 6 volumes.
