1. Refreshing Rain — A Thoughtful Christmas Gift

My relaxing and meditative CD, Refreshing Rain, is still a great gift for anyone on your Christmas list. It consists of fifteen all-instrumental pieces which I composed and recorded. It is guaranteed to provide a quiet calming in the midst of life’s chaos. Those who have purchased this peaceful CD report just that!

Listen to excerpts online and be sure to visit the new Shop page for 3 easy ways to purchase the CD!

A BIG THANK YOU to those who have already purchased one! Buy another one for a friend!

2. Another Free MP3 Download!

The latest free MP3 download on my website is my original song “My Mele”.

I wrote this song on Maui and it is included on my album, Maui No Ka Oi. “My Mele” means “my song” in Hawaiian and I am offering it as a gift to you, that you may have a Happy Holiday and a wonderful year in 2012.

3. Updated Website

My website has been updated and given a new look by Opposable Thumb Technologies. Please take a moment to navigate the site, especially the Free Downloads page where 4 songs are now available for you to download and enjoy—for free!

Contact my editor, son Peter, if you would like an update to your site!

4. Arroyo Grande Centennial

My latest commission, “Arroyo Grande: The Place to Be”, was a featured part of our city’s Centennial this year. It was premiered on April 30 and sung in the weeks leading up to July 10, the date of the city’s incorporation 100 years ago. Be sure to visit the Arroyo Grande song page to read all about it and download the free MP3 while you’re there!

5. Coming Soon!

I am in the process of publishing the scores of 12 of my piano solos in what I call “Let’s Play!”. When ready, it will be offered for purchase online. Stay tuned for more information of its release date and purchase information.

Thank you for your continuing support and thanks for reading.

Peace and Love,
Ann Marie
