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 I was inspired by two days of light thunderstorms last week. Certainly not “typical” for a September in Ohio, but nonetheless inspirational for composing. Consequently this is the first minor piece in the collection of songs for the months and it is certainly different from the rest. Take a listen to September and if you haven’t already, check out all the other songs for the months that I have composed so far. And Happy Fall to you ALL! =)
