Happy Holidays from Piano Discoveries!

December 16, 2010

I really enjoy all of the seasons  and the various holidays that come throughout the year.  But I have to say that Thanksgiving and Christmas are my all-time favorites.  With Christmas I love the music, decorations, food, surprises, a change from regular routines and the opportunity to spend “down time” with family and friends.

When I was a child Christmas was a magical, glorious time.  I loved the lights and all of the fun activities and surprises that were traditions in our home.  As an adult I’m far more practical about the events surrounding Christmas, but I still absolutely love the holiday.   Every year the Christmas season is a little bit different for me and I find that I focus more, or less, on particular aspects of the season.

One of the very best ways I get into the holiday spirit is through listening to, and playing, the myriads of arrangements of traditional and contemporary Christmas carols.  This year I have turned my attention even more to the joy of music — and not just of Christmas carols, but also of the great composers.  I have a renewed sense of appreciation and wonderment for those who toiled over their craft to leave a legacy of sounds and emotions for each of us to enjoy.

Piano Discoveries 2010 Holiday VideoIn honor of these great men (and women), and in celebration of this wonderful holiday season, I have created a musical tribute to the notable musicians who were born in December.  Please enjoy my 2010 holiday video and share it with your friends, students, teachers, and family members!

I am wishing for you a holiday season full of joy and happiness.  And may it be filled with the sweet sounds of beautiful music.

Merry Christmas,

Owner, Piano Discoveries
