Fred McKinnon is a Georgia-based pianist and composer. His music is ideal for devotional times of prayer, meditation, instrumental worship, soaking worship, studying music, sleeping music, and relaxation music. It includes both solo piano and orchestrated music that is perfect for personal listening, soundtracks, and film scoring.



His desire is that the music he creates would inspire others in their faith or personal times of contemplation. Some have characterized these piano instrumentals as healing music, background music, prophetic music, study music, meditation music, calming music, soothing music, and relaxing music.



In religious settings, Fred's music has been played as background music for soaking worship, altar calls, prelude music, and music for personal and corporate prayer and devotions.



Fred McKinnon's instrumental music is also frequently used in schools and classrooms because of the calming affect it has on children and is used to help people rest and sleep better, such as those with insomnia or sleep disorders.



Another frequent use of this music is in the world of fitness and physical care, such as yoga, massage therapy, and stretch or de-stress classes.

    Press Through | Prayer, Meditation, Mindfulness Music [Episode 201, January 21, 2020]

    “Press Through” – Worship Interludes Podcast, Episode #201







    This piano instrumental improvisation is called “Press Through”.   Featured as episode #201 of the Worship Interludes Podcast, It’s in the key of F minor and it feels a bit tense.  Oddly, I don’t feel tense at all today, I feel fantastic.   I had a great workout in the crisp cool 36 degree morning gloom with some of my F3 (F3Nation.com) brothers and have been making some really positive strides with my health.







    Despite that, this is just the vibe that came forth this morning.  Many times for me, I tend to pray more intently or with more of a “battling” type posture in my intercession when the music is in a minor key.







    I hope that it’s a blessing to you as you listen. As always, I love hearing your feedback and comments. Comment below or contact me via email to tell me how these interludes are being used in your daily life.

    In The Trenches | Dedicated to Entrepreneurs [Episode 199, January 14, 2020]

    “In the Trenches” – Piano Instrumental Music for Prayer, Meditation, Worship, and Reflection







    “In The Trenches” is a special edition of my Worship Interludes Podcast. Featured as Episode #199, this episode is dedicated to entrepreneurs and business-building warriors all across the globe. I called this “In the Trenches” because that is how entrepreneurs are living each day – deep in the trenches of working hard, leading, creating, dreaming, and experiencing the highest of highs and sometimes, the lowest of lows.







    I was recently interviewed as a guest on Jim Cockrum’s “Silent Sales Machine” podcast which is all about e-commerce entrepreneurs. He encouraged me to create one of my musical interludes as background music for prayers and affirmations over our fellow entrepreneurs and business owners. As a fellow e-commerce entrepreneur myself, I thought this was a great idea.







    As I played and recorded this, I was praying and thinking about all of those entrepreneurs out there across the globe who are working hard to make a difference in the world and in their families. The Worship Interludes Podcast is available everywhere podcasts are available. It was created to be a peaceful, instrumental soundtrack for personal times of prayer, meditation, soaking worship, relaxation, and reflection.







    Regardless if whether or not you may happen to be an entrepreneur or business owner, it’s my hope and prayer that these Worship Interlude Podcast episodes give you a resource to slow down and pray, meditate, rest, and reflect. I am confident that the prayers I’ve prayed in preparation for, and during recording of, these episodes will matter.

    No Regrets | Piano Instrumental Interlude [Episode 198, January 9, 2019]

    No Regrets | Piano Instrumental Interlude [Episode 198, January 9, 2019]

    “No Regrets” Piano Improvisation for Prayer, Meditation, Soaking Worship, Focus, Relaxation







    I am about to be brutally honest with you. There are days … or even weeks … when recording these instrumental interludes don’t come easily. Lately, it’s almost felt like a dead work. I even prayed and asked God if I should continue to produce them. The last thing I want to do is invest time, money, and energy into something God isn’t wanting me to do. All things have a season. Has the season for Worship Interludes come to a close?







    I don’t think so. I know that this music reaches across the world and blesses those who listen. Although it’s not the type of music that elicits a response from the listener, I do receive emails or messages from time to time that encourage me to keep on.







    When we hit the wall and feel like caving in and giving up we have to remember our “why” and our “purpose”. Why am I doing this? What purpose is it accomplishing? Finally, once I press through the resistance, how do I feel?







    I can tell you exactly how I feel.







    No regrets.







    That’s right. No. Regrets.







    Despite feeling unmotivated, tired, uncreative, and restless, I never walk away from recording an interlude with a sense of regret. Instead, I feel a sense of accomplishment, peace, and satisfaction.







    It’s the exact same feeling I have when I push through the mental warfare that wants to keep me in the warm bed on a morning like today when I’m supposed to meet my buddies for our morning exercise workouts. It was 38 degrees this morning. The leader of today’s workout is notorious for integrating a lot of running into his workouts. None of that appealed to me. Yet, I pushed through the resistance and joined my brothers in the cold darkness for 45 minutes of heart-racing, muscle-challenging fitness.







    When I jumped into my truck to come home at 6:30 this morning, guess what I felt …







    No regrests.







    That’s right. No. Regrets.







    Do you know, it’s the same way when we pull aside and spend time in prayer, meditation, worship, or reflection. Honestly, have you EVER taken time for these spiritual disciplines and regretted it? Hasn’t it almost aways been fruitful for you?







    Today’s interlude is just over ten minutes long. I love to challenge myself to invest ten minutes into my time of prayer and meditation. Ten minutes. It’s not too long. It’s so obtainable. You can do this.







    Listen. Pray. Reflect. When your mind is distracted, push through to the end of this piece. I feel very confident that once the last note fades, you will feel NO REGRETS.







    Grace and peace to you all,Fred McKinnon, Pianist/Composer

    New Beginnings – New Year [Episode 197, January 7, 2020]

    New Beginnings – New Year [Episode 197, January 7, 2020]

    “New Beginnings” – Piano Instrumental for New Years, Reflection, Prayer, Journaling, Meditation







    Welcome to Episode #197 of the Worship Interludes Podcast, the first episode of 2020. I’ve called today’s episode “New Beginnings”. My idea behind this keyboard improvisation was to provide a soundtrack for you to start your new year. I love January and the the beginning of the new year. I fully understand that most people don’t keep their resolutions. I’m guilty of that as well. However, there is something powerful about setting new resolutions, goals, and ideas. I love to chase those dreams.







    This interlude is around 8:30 minutes. It gives you just enough time to be still and think about the year ahead. I’d encourage you to grab a piece of paper or a journal and write down the thoughts that come to you as you listen.







    What do you feel?What do you hear?What do you see?







    As you prayerfully consider the year ahead, what goals do you have?







    My Tuesday morning routine got shaken up this year and because of that I felt a bit rushed in recording the interlude this morning. After I finished I went for a walk and as I was praying, I asked the Father, God, to bless the music. I don’t feel like it’s my best, but I know God can use it to touch others. I hope that it will be a blessing to you as you listen.







    Let’s grow together in 2020 – in times of solitude, prayer, meditation, and rest.







    Also, I will mention this in another post, but in December, this podcast passed ONE MILLION downloads. That’s a huge milestone and I’m super grateful to all of you who subscribe and listen.

    Looking Back | Piano Interlude [Episode 196, December 31, 2019]

    Looking Back – Solo Piano Improvisation by Fred McKinnon







    In case you haven’t noticed, I took a little break during the last few weeks of December from producing the podcast. Life was crazy – I was in the middle of moving into a new office, we were busy with holiday activities, and then just as I was getting settled my home studio became ground zero for the flu. My youngest child, Andrew, got sick and this little office/studio was his isolation room. He was setup with a comfy couch, iPad, phone, and my computer so he could watch TV, rest, etc. The last place I wanted to spend time was in that room.







    Although disappointed that I didn’t hit the 200th episode this year, it’s right around the corner.







    I’m recording this on New Years Eve, 2019. The interlude is called “Looking Back” and is meant to be a peaceful piano improvisation to listen to as you reflect on the past year.







    Take a listen, breathe slowly, and reflect on your year. Acknowledge the victories and failures. Pray and receive direction for the coming year and express gratitude for 2019.







    I’m so grateful and honored that you’ve taken this journey with me. In 2020, Lord willing, we will reach over one million downloads of this podcast all over the world.







    May God bless you and prosper you this coming year.







    Grace and peace,Fred
