Calm music is a great way to transition from the hustle of the day to bedtime.
I’ve been known to roll around in bed into the depths of the night, so over the years, I’ve experimented with many ways to fall asleep. Playing an instrument is a great one, next to reading. You tend to concentrate just enough to get the notes right and you’re literally playing your troubles away!
To avoid printing 5 papers for something I’m only ever playing once, I’m learning more by ear these days. (Yes I have a tablet, no I don’t like reading music off it.) But my friend Molly and I put together some great dreamy piano melodies to play before bedtime, with sheet music!
Love Me – Yiruma
When I first started playing Yiruma’s music, it would take a few hours to decipher one of his pieces. Now, I play his music for a different type of satisfaction.
Goodnight – The Beatles
Dreams – Fleetwood Mac
Candle In The Wind – Elton John
My Cherie Amour – Stevie Wonder
Dreams – The Cranberries
The Scientist – Coldplay
Reason – Yiruma
Let Her Go – Passenger
I enjoy Constantino’s videos a lot! He’s like your university bff who bangs out a mean tune in the garage. But better of course.
Sweet Dreams – Eurythmics
Thank you, Molly, for suggesting these piano solos!
