Over the course of the next 12 months I’m sharing original songs for piano that correspond to the current month. Each composition will include nature sounds to enhance the piece and reflect the season (thank you handy, dandy iPad!). My goal for this series is two-fold. First, is to make myself sit down and compose on the piano more often. After 25 years of playing, I can definitely say that it never gets old. But finding the extra time to do it can be tricky. My hope is this series will keep me accountable. =) My second goal is to share some new music that you, your clients or students might find relaxing and enjoyable as you reflect on the current month.
This month was a real treat to compose because I had a lovely ocean view from our vacation spot in Maine (pictured above) to inspire the music and serve as the nature sounds featured in the song. I think this piece might be my new favorite! What do you think?! Here are all the songs for the months I have composed so far in the series. Happy August!
