Salsa Rhythm Software

Customers Say

After practicing with your software, for a few days, I already noticed a huge difference with my leading. Since recently, I don't have to count anymore to stay on the right beat. Actually, I can feel now when I'm off after few phrases. It depends of the songs of course, some being harder to hear than other.
