What is your involvement with New Age Music
Dyan Garris started playing the piano when she was four years old. Her mother bought a baby grand piano and soon thereafter procured the services of a piano teacher. The piano teacher was an interesting choice because he was totally blind.
At the first lesson Dyan asked him how he was going to teach her to play the piano since he could not see, and she asked him to take off his glasses so she could see his eyes. He obliged. They were beautiful blue, and they were definitely blind. But even then, through those obscured windows, she saw his soul. He was brilliant.
And he said to her, “Child, we do not need to be able to ‘see’ to play this instrument. We only need to be able to feel the music. Music is not about seeing. It’s about feeling.” With that, he took her hands and placed them atop of his and they played the most wonderful music.
Garris is a classically trained pianist and violinist. She became and maintained first chair, first violin throughout high school orchestra and still loves the way the two instruments blend together in perfect harmony.
Her interest in meditation and music for relaxation goes back to early 1993, which is when she first began creating guided meditations. Music itself, of course, has been a way of life.
