Album Notes

These 24 Impromptus follow in the classical music tradition of writing a set of pieces in all the major and minor keys of the chromatic scale. Each evokes a unique feeling or emotion that can be summed up in a one-word affirmation, which I have attached as subtitles to the traditional classical titles. As you listen to this music, I hope these affirmations will resonate with your spirit and inspire you to transcend the past and live more fully and authentically in the present.

Pam Asberry Bio

Described as “a new age solo pianist of uncommon melodic grace, insight and heartfelt intuitiveness” (Jonathan Widran, The JW Vibe), Pam Asberry is an award-winning performing artist and composer who combines contemporary, new age and classical sounds to create music that is alternately melodic and graceful, dramatic and powerful, peaceful and hypnotic. She received the Master of Music Degree from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, where she studied piano and piano pedagogy with Mary Jane Grizzell and Donald Beattie. She has been a featured soloist with the University of Maine Percussion Ensemble, the Georgia Southern Wind Ensemble, and the Gwinnett Symphony Wind Orchestra, and has performed her original music in concerts across the United States and abroad. An active member of the Music Teachers National Association (MTNA), she has presented lectures and recitals at regional and state conferences in Georgia, Illinois, and Texas. And maintains a private teaching studio in Lawrenceville, Georgia, offering both virtual and in-person lessons in piano, clarinet, music theory, and composition. Her twin passions are sharing her music and the stories behind them with listeners around the world and inspiring others, especially young people, to find their own joy in music making.
