If you have the time, make sure to make it out to this amazing concert/lecture. If you are just starting to learn the piano or already play the piano extremely well, I guarantee you will get something out of this. Some of the best pianists I have ever met were well rounded musicians that could understand and play different styles of music. Salsa is a great genre that will not disappoint when you sit at the piano.

Happy playing!
