New Age Piano - Combining Nature and Music

I think the thing I love most about New Age piano is that it combines my two favorite things - nature and music.

This genre offers the listener a window into the beauty and majesty of Nature. Just listen to some of George Winston's music and you'll be transported into that nonverbal realm where we all are inspired.

It also offers the person who wants to play piano a perfect way to jump into improvisation. No sophisticated chords or voicings here. Not because they aren't good, but because they aren't needed. The beginner can delve into self-expression immediately and create their own music using simple means. A few chords, a scale are all that is needed! I find this immensly appealing.
