Music for Health: Yiruma

Not really much to say here, just a word of thanks to the universe for allowing me to stumble upon Korean pianist, Yiruma. As of this posting, the following live performance of "River Flows in You" has around 17 million views, so my guess is that a few of our readers know of this virtuoso pianist?

If you've always wanted to take up piano but just haven't been able to overcome the drudgery of learning basic scales and theory, you might consider learning by video. On YouTube alone, you can find numerous tutorials like the one below that I, for one, take great hope from.

I stumbled upon this technology the other day as we began our journey as a family to learn piano. Our one big Christmas gift was a digital piano (88-Key Digital Stage Piano) that we hope to enjoy for many years.

Here's another performance of "River Flows In" where Yiruma gifts us with lyrics - in Korean and English - to this exquisite melody.

And because I just can't get enough of Yiruma at the moment, below is a live performance of "Kiss the Rain."

For the record, I love discovering new musical artists, so if you have a personal favorite, please don't be shy in sharing a recommendation via our comments section below. Many thanks.
