“Calm” (Improv)

posted in: Blog 6

Title/Theme: “Calm” (Improv 03.13.20); Key/Structure: D Major.

Comment about this piece:  When I woke up this morning I went to the piano, pressed “record” and this piece was created. This itself is worthy as I haven’t been able to play piano for weeks due to a biking accident (fractured my right hand – still in a temporary cast). At the same time, all our thoughts are filled with news of Coronavirus. It’s really overwhelming. With this as a backdrop, the phrase which keeps coming to my mind is “This too shall pass”. That said, it’s difficult in the moment to find calm and peace. Music can help. I hope this piano meditation brings some peace and calm (and hope) into your day. Please share with anyone you think could benefit.
