My First Annual House Concert will be held Saturday, March 17, 2018.
Please see the information below on my poster.
RSVP necessary as space is limited.
May Day Rag was written on a May Day, thinking about the ending of spring-like weather and looking forward to a fun-filled summer to come. It was included on my album Welcome Home, written in 2016.
Dance of the Insomniac
If you have ever suffered from insomnia (and who hasn’t?), you will appreciate this piece that starts out manic–that feeling you get after too many nights struggling to sleep. It is included in my CD Wonder.
Then go listen to Whispers and Meditations, my recently released Album guaranteed to help you sleep!
Take a Walk
How often have you wanted to tell someone to just “Take a Walk”….especially in this disturbing campaign season–or maybe you are the one who just needs to take a walk!
This piece will definitely get you walking! Aim for those 10,000 steps today!
Whispers on the Wing — Excerpt only
To whet your appetite, I am including this Excerpt only. It is the first piano solo in my new album Whispers and Meditations. As you listen, please picture the beauty of the tiny hummingbird and the whispers of its wings as it hovers outside the window.
Please go to my CDBaby page to hear all of the excerpts in this album and to purchase….
It is with great excitement that I release my latest and most meditative album, “Whispers and Meditations.”
It is a full CD with 20 piano solos, all of which are guaranteed to relax and refresh. The beautiful melodies are guaranteed to provide a refreshing and quietly meditative interlude in a life of busyness and activity. Lovely distraction!
Some of the titles are: “A Meditation,” “Sweet Dreams,” “Fall Reflection,” “Whispers on the Wing,” Maui Tradewinds.” All are quietly meditative.
It is my second “meditative” album and I think it is a great way to start the day or a great way to wind down from the day.
The titles are:

Rebecca of Amazon, a Hall of Fame Reviewer, has left the following gracious review:
“Let’s Play” is a wonderful CD of original piano solos. Ann Marie Kurrasch is a very talented pianist who has her own style and presents many different musical moods. There are relaxing and mellow offerings like “Reflections” and then lively and spirited offerings like “It’s Party Time” and “Hummingbird Waltz.” I especially enjoyed the loving, generous and open heart expanding “A World of Peace and Beauty.” The title really seems to truly embody the feelings in the piano solo. And if you are in the mood for a little melancholy “Mystery” will impress you. “Refreshing Rain” was quite delicate and gorgeous. I enjoyed all the music on this CD and can recommend it to you. Look for the sheet music if you want to learn any of the solos.
2) Free song for you– “It’s Your Lucky Day–Be Happy”
See below to download my latest Free MP3 It’s Your Lucky Day . This is a fun and happy song I recently wrote while “channeling” Randy Newman!! This song was included in my 5th CD, Whispers on the Wing, which consists of 18 of my most recent songs for solo piano. While at my website, check out the other free downloads, most recent blogs, and what’s for sale in my “store.”
3) Refreshing Rain CD
This CD is still my most requested album, full of restful and meditative songs that I wrote when we lived on Maui. Pick up a copy at Amazon or at my website (or from me, those who live on the Central Coast) and give it to someone who is stressed out and needs a relaxing respite and a pleasant listening experience.
Again, to quote Rebecca of Amazon, Hall of Fame Reviewer: “We just had an amazing rainstorm and it was so peaceful afterwards. I wanted to listen to something relaxing and inspirational while reading. All the pieces on this CD are original and beautifully played. Ann Marie Kurrasch touches the heart with her music. This music is hopeful and induces a feeling of love and caring.”
Again…..be happy !!
Love, Ann Marie

It’s Your Lucky Day…Be Happy!
This is a fun, happy and light piece I wrote recently, reminiscent of Randy Newman’s fun songs.
So, lighten up and enjoy! 🙂
