"The V Player is a new technology. The technology was created by Yamaha in Japan to create an online, interactive music format using print, audio, MIDI and an animated musical instrument that plays along with music on the screen." You can change instruments, play or sing along and print out from a library of sheet music on the site. The player itself is available for free from YamahaMusicSoft.com. You can buy songs to download for 3.95. Handy, if you're say a vocalist preparing for an audition... .
"And you need some pop songs right away. You can download these songs, you can practice them, and also record them and have somebody accompanying you, without actually having to bring an accompanist along with you." Want to try? Be our guest... (sound) It could be a useful tool for students as well. Bloomberg Boot Camp, I'm Fred Fishkin.
