I just got back from a week-long camping trip and it feels good to be in the musical mode again. It’s very important to take some time for ourselves; to change our usual pace, reflect, see different scenery, and recharge our batteries.
In a sense, music can be like this for us too. And the good thing is that we don’t have to go anywhere or take a long vacation to do this. All we need to do is immerse ourselves in our music, for a few minutes or a few hours, and we can come away fresh and invigorated.
Thank you to all who’ve been enjoying my new ebook, Flowing Water: Play Piano With More Joy And Less Stress. So far it’s been downloaded 1,855 times in less than 2 weeks and it’s very gratifying to hear the positive response from so many of you.
