    “Trust” – Solo Piano Improvisation for Prayer, Meditation, Reflection, Relaxation







    As the sun set on the final days of 2020, we entered 2021 with much hope and anticipation. It hasn’t taken long to realize that 2021 is already full of its own opportunities to stress, worry, and be anxious.







    Personally, I would be hopeless if I did not have something … someONE … who I trust.Whom I believe in.Whom I know holds this messed up world in His hands.







    I hope that you will take some time and release all of your worry and care and cast them on the One who holds the world in His hands.

    White As Snow | Solo Piano Instrumental [Episode 248, December 22, 2020]

    “White as Snow” – Solo Piano Instrumental Improvisation by Fred McKinnon







    Dear Friends,







    MERRY CHRISTMAS. This morning’s improvisation is a soft, free-flowing piece in the key of Dm. I was imagining a peaceful, gentle snow falling. We rarely get to experience snowfall here in south Georgia but I’ve always loved seeing snow. As we approach our Christmas holiday, I’m reminded of the season and the reason that we celebrate. Christmas means so many things to me, but at the top of the list is a reminder of the incredible miracle of the birth of Jesus Christ.







    I do fully realize that not everyone who listens to my music and these interludes is part of my Christian faith. If that is you, I hope that you are still able to fully embrace and receive the beauty, peace, and tranquility that I wanted to have expressed in this short instrumental interlude.







    For those who celebrate Christmas as the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ – I am reminded that this baby, fully God and fully man, shed his blood for our sins. And in doing so, it makes us “white as snow”.







    Merry Christmas, dear friends. May the peace of God be with you.







    With love,Fred McKinnon, Pianist/Composer

    Shelter | Piano Instrumental [Episode 247, December 3, 2020]

    “Shelter” – Solo Piano Instrumental Music for Prayer, Meditation, Relaxation, Mindfulness







    Psalm 91 is one of my favorite chapters in the Bible. I pray and recite it often as it’s a beautiful reminder of God’s protection for us. Our family recently had a terrifying experience that could have been really terrible. As it turned out, things worked out OK but I was reminded of how God is a Shelter for us – a protection like no other.







    That was my posture this morning as I improvised this interlude. It’s open, airy, slow, and intentional.







    I hope that you will take time to listen, slow down, breathe, and take it in.







    Thank you for listening!

    Mindful Moments, Opus 4 [Episode 246, November 17, 2020]

    Mindful Moments, Opus 4 [Episode 246, November 17, 2020]

    “Mindful Moments, Opus 4” – Short Piano Instrumental Improvisations by Fred McKinnon







    Today’s interlude is part of my “Mindful Moments” series, which are shorter instrumental interludes that are designed for quick, impromptu moments of meditation, prayer, mindfulness, and relaxation. We are all so busy and life is moving so fast. It’s easy to assume that if you missed your longer session of quiet time that you should just skip it for the day. These shorter interludes can give you a quick escape even in the midst of the busiest of days.







    This interlude utilizes one of my favorite musical progressions which is the minor6, the major5, and then the minor2. It has a haunting feel to it and I enjoy adding the minor9 to most of those chords which gives it a darker sound.







    Thank you so much for listening to my music. I hope and pray that it brings you joy and peace.

    “Hopeful” – Solo Piano Instrumental Music for Prayer, Meditation, Soaking Worship, Mindfulness, Relaxation, and Reflection







    Today’s interlude is called “Hopeful”. I’m recording this one week after a very tough, contested election in the United States. It feels as if our country has never been more divided. Yet, as I calm myself and go into a personal place of prayer and reflection, I arise HOPEFUL.







    Life on this earth is exhausting. It’s filled with every sort of stress and anxiety and we must make a choice on how we will handle these negative barriers in our life. We get to choose – choose positivity, choose words of life, choose affirmations, choose to rest, choose to have hope, choose to believe.







    I hope that as you listen today, you’ll be encouraged and find that secret place of peace, calm, and rest.

    “Depths of Love” – Piano Instrumental for Prayer, Meditation, Soaking Worship, Reflection, Mindfulness







    DEEP EXHALE. I just finished recording this piano interlude. I do these improvisations every Tuesday morning as part of my Worship Interludes Podcast, which I created to be a soundtrack for personal devotion, prayer, meditation, etc.







    As with any musician/artist who is honest, there are way more times we create something that just feels “ok” than those magical moments. This morning was magical. It was one of those interludes where I immediately felt that Presence … and felt the emotion and energy throughout the improvisation which lasted a little over nine minutes.







    It was one of those satisfying moments where I said to myself,







    “That. Was. Strong.”







    I hope that you enjoy listening and that it ushers you into a place where you experience the depths of God’s love for you, and His peace, stillness, and rest. Grace and peace, Fred McKinnon, Pianist/Composer
