Soothing and relaxing, meditation music is designed to calm your mind and center your spirit. There is a lot of music out there that will help you do this, but have you ever thought about creating your own meditation music?

It's possible. And it's a lot easier than you might think.

The cool thing about creating your own meditation music is that you can tailor it to suit your own taste. Many instruments are perfect for creating this type of music, but the piano is especially good. Why? Because a complete beginner can learn a few chords and begin to create immediately.

But how you ask? Here's how.

The first thing I have my students do is learn something called the open position piano chord. This chord structure allows the complete beginner to create sounds that are modern and easy on the ears.

It's not an easy chord structure to master at first, but once accomplished, it really gives you all you need to easily play the piano.

One style that's synonymous with meditation music is the New Age style. In fact, New Age music is the place most look first when they need to relax and unwind.

Most people have heard of New Age piano. The man who put this genre on the map, George Winston, has literally sold millions of his soothing, reflective solo piano CD's.

You see, the thing about actually creating this kind of music on your own is that it actually allows you to go deeper than just listening to it. That's because you are actively engaged in making it. This alone will help you stay in the present and experience a deep peace seldom found by just 'taking it in.'
