New Original Ambient Piano Solo: MOUNTAIN BELLS

Music, Music Composition

A stony mountain seen through a warm glowing haze. Text reads: Mountain Bells, Intermediate Piano Solo, by Danielle WilliamsSheet music preview - the first line of MOUNTAIN BELLS

I’ve composed a new piano piece! It’s called Mountain Bells. Written in the spirit of Brian Eno and Harold Budd, it’s a  minimalist piece that shimmers and breathes.

You can buy it here at my Gumroad store.

Performance tips: The pauses make this one, so don’t rush. I play it slow–like, with my heart’s metronome set at 60.


Free LDS Easy Piano Five-Finger Hymn Arrangements

Music, Music Composition

My sheet music page has new piano music added! Mormon piano teachers and beginning players, you’re gonna love this.

A grown student of mine, Sue, wanted dearly to play some of our church hymns, but we both found the Hymns Made Easy book to be above her level.

In response, I simplified them even further, transforming the melodies into 5-finger arrangements. This means there are zero to no hand position changes and almost no chords!

Though they’re nothing fancy, Sue really enjoyed being able to play the worship songs she loved!

These public-domain hymn arrangements are presented as-is; feel free to write in any fingering or letter name helps! These are FOR YOU!
