A Walk with my Father - Music by Chrisanne Nahum

Just published today! (Thank you so much Jennifer Eklund!) When I wrote this, I had about 16 measures scribbled down in pencil (I still have that sheet of paper! :) ) and something said, "Call it "A Walk with My Father."
I had never written a sacred piece before, and this was the first.
I play it for offering or pre-service music at church, and my teen students love to play it as well!
There are no lyrics to this one - everyone's walk is different and the lyrics will come to each person as they listen or play this piece. A Walk with my Father is a reflective sacred solo composed by Chrisanne Nahum. This piece is ideal for intermediates and appropriate for offertories or casual enjoyment for pianists of all ages.

Nothing But Love - Music by Chrisanne Nahum

Video explaining the circle of fifths. :)

In this animated video made by the awesome Mark Newman, you are going to learn all you need to know about the Circle of Fifths. The trainer demonstrates some of its many uses in music composition.

"The Circle of Fifths is a visual representation of the relationships between the 12 tones of the chromatic scale. It was invented by the Greek philosopher Pythagoras and is so called as it takes the form of a circle around which each of the 12 tones are laid out. As you move around the circle in a clockwise direction, the next tone you encounter will be a 5th above the tone before it.

The Circle of Fifths lies at the very foundation of western music theory and is therefore extremely useful as you can refer to it to help you find out things like, what key you are in. If you are in a major key it helps you find the relative minor key and visa versa. It tells you which chords are available in which key. It can even help you to transpose your music into a different key and move between keys within a song." (source : Mark Newman)

[10/29/16]   First time in a very long time! I HAVE OPENINGS FOR NEW STUDENTS! Check my website for more info on my studio and fill out a contact form there! :D

Posted in a piano teachers group. LOL Love it! Here's a link to my Halloween pieces:

A momentous occasion today at Chrisanne Holm Piano Studio. This summer I've been mentoring a very talented former student of mine (Lindsey) and today she taught her first piano lessons! She will now continue as the piano teacher for these lovely girls as a travelling teacher. Blessings all the way around - talented teenager (future music major, for sure!), bright and sweet students, and happy mentor! After the lessons, Lindsey played for me an AMAZING piece SHE WROTE - I told her she HAS to notate it - I was blown away! Future composer for sure!

Masquerade - Music by Chrisanne Holm

A new intermediate level release today! Good for any time of the year (but totally Halloween appropriate) is my new haunting, minor-key, lyrical number. Teens will love this one! (I catch my 18 year old son whistling it upstairs after it's been played in my studio!!) Masquerade is a whimsical lyrical waltz in B minor composed by Chrisanne Holm. This piece is ideally suited for intermediates and will delight students of all ages!

[08/22/16]   Piano Parent Podcasts! Eventually, there will be one featuring ME. :) It has been recorded, but probably won't air until October/November. I'll keep you posted!

Steinway & Sons

Why acoustic? The digital age has brought us the convenience of an acoustic grand into a modestly costing, portable keyboard. But even the best digital piano cannot ultimately escape what it is: a copy of the original. The true technique of a soulful player begins with an authentic acoustic piano.

Congratulations to my students, Bridget and Bryce, for their Grand Champion and Blue Ribbon wins at the county fair! On to the MN State Fair for Bridget! Great kids, on and off the piano bench! :D

Daytime Dreamin' by Chrisanne Holm

Lovely 5 Star Review today of this piece by a piano teacher in Vermont. Made my day! "Daytime Dreamin' is such a fresh, joyful song that I know my students will enjoy learning and playing for years to come. When I hear a piece of music that I find myself humming after one listening, I just know it will be perfect as a teaching piece. Keep writing Chrisanne!!~" Daytime Dreaming’ is a light, cheerful solo by Chrisanne Holm in the key of C Major. This graceful, lilting waltz is ideal for intermediates of all ages.

Smart and Happy student! :D

Your Turn! - Music by Chrisanne Holm

Another piece of mine that was released last week pairs well with "Bright Side of Life" for lateral reinforcement of the G position and G major key signature. Lots of teaching points in this piece as well. Your Turn! composed by Chrisanne Holm, is a lilting waltz-time solo for late-beginners. Perfect for students of all ages who have just been introduced to a G major five-finger position.

Bright Side of Life - Music by Chrisanne Holm

A new release! Ideally suited for Movement 1 students who have just reached the G Position songs and need some lateral supplementation. This is a blues-style solo that will also reinforce swing-style eighth notes and a variety of other teaching points. Bright Side of Life, composed by Chrisanne Holm, is a light, upbeat, blues-style solo for late-beginners. Perfect for students of all ages who have just been introduced to a G major five-finger position and key signature.

[06/25/16]   A quote from pianist & piano teacher, Anne Vanko Liva - "The most important requisite for a teacher is love: you have to love the child. Children have a way of knowing if you're sincere and if you really love them. Then they want to do for you. Then comes the music; and music is, of course, a language, a very beautiful language..."

And, unlike sports or dance, you can do it your WHOLE life! :D

Just keep practicing!
