Just wanted to share a beautiful song by Wendy Stevens from composecreate.com called Rested. The lyrical song is perfect and fitting for where our world is with unrest. We need to play and hear music that will calm our spirits and make us whole. This song does just that. The short one page song from the Feeling Fine short sheets is definitely needed in this world.
The melody is so mesmerizing, making you relax with the gentle sounds presented. The rhythms are not complicated with the quarter, eighth and sixteenth notes in the treble clef and the chords in the left hand resonate with the fitted melody. Most of the song is mezzo piano, yet one line has brings a bit more sound to mezzo forte as it ascends on the piano to second C above Middle C. She adds two rituardands and a gorgeous G Major 7th chord at the end.
If you're looking for a relaxing and still energetic song, please consider Rested as an option for yourself or your students. Those who play the song will be filled with joy, playing such a melodic one page song. Check out some of her other short sheets that are tons of fun for early to late Intermediate piano players. Hope you enjoy the YouTube created. This song will be a favorite song to sit down and play no matter what.
