Thank you so much! I haven't written the score yet, as I play and compose mostly by ear. Thank you for saying that you would like to learn it though! I hadn't thought of releasing the music for others to learn because it hadn't occurred to me that others WOULD like to! This gives me a reason to write out the score and release it. :D

Oops, missed your other question! Haha. I'm a sound therapist and performing artist, so it is both work and passion!

So beautiful! I had never heard of sound therapy! I saw your site and it really looks like a very interesting and absolutely original profession! How did you decide to do this kind of work?

Thanks for your interest and for checking out my site! It combines my two major areas of interest, music and biomedical engineering. It was a long journey of self-discovery and reflection on what I actually wanted to contribute to the world. :)

An angel was by your side to accompany that melody, you are so talented that I am afraid to know that you will not have the true recognition!

I have angels with me a lot of the time. I've recently learned that my energy is partially from the angelic realm. Thank you for listening and for your words! <3

This is very interesting. You're a very talented pianist.

I play piano too, mostly video game music. Some few compositions, not nearly as elaborate as this though. I find that playing the piano puts me in a meditative state. I like how you've called it Mindful Monday, for a piano music post.

Thank you for listening and for your words! It's strange for me to identify myself as a pianist because I never took piano lessons - I'm a classically trained violinist and still feel very uncomfortable on the piano. Haha. Working on getting over that though! What video game music do you play?? That's so cool!

Playing any instrument helps me to find a meditative state. This post is part of a series that I do as part of my Sound Therapy practice. My website has more information about that if you're interested:

Cool. I'll definitely check it out.I like to play songs from Dragon Age, Mass Effect, Fable. I sometimes do my own interpretations of some songs, or find the notes by ear. I'm good at that, better than reading notes. It takes me forever to read notes.

I took lessons at 6 up until 19. Though I'm still not the best pianist and have trouble with certain rythms and such, but I play for fun and I can always alter some parts of songs to be more able to play them at full speed. Some are more challenging than others.

You play like you've been taking lessons a lot longer than me and as though you've been doing it with more practice than me. Now that's talent, right there :)

Do you also share your violin music here?

Amazing. I also learn by ear. It's challenging for me to learn a piece by reading the music and takes me longer to pick it up. It does help sometimes to be able to see fast passages written out though as it can be hard to discern what notes are being played when they kinda blur together.

I've actually never taken formal piano lessons. I'm a classically trained violinist and have just picked up other instruments along the way. I don't practice as much as I would like to. Haha. I'm glad it sounds like I practice a lot though! I usually get fixated on all of my mistakes, so this is nice to hear. Thank you! :D

I do also share my violin music here. You should be able to find some posts with violin if you go back in time on my blog. There will be more to come in the future as well though. :D

Awesome. Well now that I'm following you, I'm sure I'll be able to catch your posts.

Yeah, I sometimes get fixated on the errors too. That's why I prefer to record and edit my performances. They sound much better that way :D Playing live makes me so nervous, I can't play without errors.

By the way, I'm curious to know more about the sound therapy that you do. I checked out your website. I've seen those tools before, but I don't know the name. I know that vibration is connected to energy. I have a Tibetan singing bowl that I use sometimes and I've been putting together some tracks with the singing bowl and other sounds for relaxation music. Does teh sound therapy work similarly in terms of its vibration and effects?

Thanks for following!

Haha, yea playing live has been a big challenge for me, but it's helped me to grow so much and improve my playing and improvising so quickly.

Awesome! I use some singing bowls in my practice, but tuning forks are my main tool for assessing the energy flow through chakras and adjusting them as needed. Each chakra produces an electromagnetic field that interacts with the vibrating fork, moving the fork if there is flow through the centre and changing how the fork sounds.

Thank you so much for listening and for the kind words @mariita52! Yes, I saw this song as a merging of Hungarian dance and Tango styles. :D

Wow wow I would have liked to hear the whole musical composition, it is magnificent. What a great artist you are!! Thank you for this little piece of your art that you show us in this post. Regards @jackieobermeyer

Thank you so much for listening and for the kind words @marcybetancourt! The full composition is actually 4 songs together and requires multiple instruments. Haha. Hard for me to play all together - need to work on recording everything so I can have the tracks playing simultaneously.

I loved watching your fingers creating this stunning piece of music..

Is Zenia a female name? Does this music describe her personality? I would say she is strong, dynamic, passionate and enjoying her life :)

Thank you for sharing and have a lovely day!

Thanks for listening and for the feedback @delishtreats! I actually wrote it many years ago as part of a highschool English project. It was a "book report", and I asked if I could write music instead of a report! There are 3 other songs in the suite, one for each of the 4 main characters. The book is "the robber bride" by Margaret Atwood. Zenia is the name of the main character and the finale of the suite.

Glad you enjoyed it! If you're looking for more, you can check me out on instagram: @tunedsoundtherapy. These mindful Monday posts are for my Sound therapy practice :)
