New Age Music Enters the Mainstream
It used to be the stuff of the '60s and '70s. A magical mystery tour express, where rock stars and alternate religion advocates converged on the same track New Age Music.
Free flowing, free form melodies inspiring introspection and what was called Universal Awareness.
If you thought this trend went underground, you'd be right. But underground didn't mean gone. The original proponents merely entered conventional society: Cutting their hair, getting jobs, marrying and starting families.
But throughout it all, their beliefs not only didn't disappear they solidified, gaining a quiet new strength and following.
Today, the once famous Age of Aquarius" is now simply known as New Age. And instead of being on the fringes of society, its in the mainstream.
So much so that famous advocates such as Oprah, Madonna, Eckhart Tolle and a bevy of other influential celebrities openly promote this philosophy of tolerance, acceptance and love.
Edward Weiss, teacher, author and composer is yet another individual on the vanguard of this continuing spiritual awakening.
Perhaps not as famous as his contemporaries mentioned above (at least not yet) Edward has put a new spin on connecting with the New Age lifestyle: He teaches New Age Piano Music Composition.
And in keeping with this innovative movement, he does it all online for beginners and well as seasoned musicians.
As Edward explains:
New Age Music isn't some strange, esoteric chiming cadence. Its actually the melody of ones soul or spirit. The tempo is flowing and vibrant, with a touch of mystery always woven into the background.
Think of it as the difference between formal ballroom dancing and ballet. Rather than restrictive and rigid, New Age music seems to whirl around your very senses.
How difficult is it to start playing your very own New Age Music?
Not really difficult at all, says Edward. All you need is the desire, the patience and of course the keyboard. My step by step online video instructions provide the rest.
Now, you may not be ready for signing a recording contract after taking Edwards course, but you will learn the basics of playing and composing your very own music.
And isnt that what this New Age is all about finding innovative and fresh ways in expressing your own individuality? What better way in doing just that than in creating mystical, spirit inspired music the timeless voice of nature itself.
