Comments on my CDs!

TBriggs : December 3, 2010 7:57 AM

There are lots of places on the internet to write comments, including on this blog! 

I was recently reviewing comments made about my CDs on www.Amazon.com and found three comments on my Christmas CD, Christmas Music for Tranquility:

  • “This is the way Christmas music was meant to be played. It reminds me of a more peaceful time (before gift cards!). This is the perfect background music when you are visiting with family and friends around the tree.”
  •  “Do yourself a favor and purchase this CD. You will enjoy beautiful, peaceful music during the holidays.”
  • “Tired of department store Christmas ‘musac’? Here’s a CD for you … old-fashioned instruments – no vocals – just pure sound … e n j o y !”

It is fun to share these with you and if you would like your own copy of this CD, click here.

Featuring “The Christmas Story”

TBriggs : December 1, 2010 11:34 AM

This week we are featuring one of my Christmas CDs called “The Christmas Story.” It was recorded on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in 2001. Since most Christmas music on the market is recorded in the summer (so it’s available in time for the holidays), I have always known that this CD had the holiday spirit infused in a very magical way.

Last year, when the Daily OM wrote a review and shared it with their 1 million customers, I knew they understood the special grace of this solo harp CD.  I am deeply touched and humbled by their beautiful words…

Review by Daily OM:

“Harpist Tami Briggs is a sound healer whose angelic, gentle playing bypasses all resistance to touch the root chord of the human soul. She honed her healing skill via personal appearances at hospitals and hospices, bringing her soothing sounds right up to the beds of those most in need. Bringing her knowledge of healing into the recording studio, Briggs makes harp music that’s simple, sweet, and deeply soothing. Embracing a less-is-more strategy, The Christmas Story interprets classic holiday standards into gentle solo-harp pieces, potent enough to hush a room of chatting relatives, relaxing enough to play in a child’s bedroom to help them fall asleep on Christmas Eve. And if you should find yourself alone for the holidays, Briggs becomes an angelic friend, her music a shimmering presence rooting you back to humanity.

Capturing the vibe of a live performance, The Christmas Story offers audio quality sharp enough to give the illusion that Briggs is playing right in the same room as you mull through your presents or nap on the couch in a sea of torn wrapping paper….The CD wraps up with the feeling of belonging to something larger than oneself, as Briggs’ gentle touch with the harp suffused even her frequent impassioned glissandos with warmth. More than just a bunch of carols played on the harp, Briggs skirts in and around the familiar melodies with the finesse of a jazz soloist, albeit one with no agenda of showing off chops, but rather of hitting all the right notes to warm the back of your neck and open your heart. Put on The Christmas Story when you need a gentle reminder of what the holidays are about: peace, love, and spiritual regeneration.”

Happy Thanksgiving!

TBriggs : November 22, 2010 8:54 AM

A Happy Thanksgiving message from Tami Briggs (Musical Reflections’ founder) —

Thanksgiving is a favorite time to reflect on all of the things I’m grateful for:

  •  Your continued support, as well as your feedback, ideas and encouragement.
  • All of the patients and families who allow me into their lives at a most vulnerable time of illness.
  • The healthcare staff at the numerous hospitals where I’ve had the opportunity to play for those they serve.
  • To Chris Schommer, Ben Myers and Kari Havir for creating my new website.
  • The opportunity to meet Dr. Earl Bakken, founder of Medtronic, and speaking/playing at an integrative care session at Medtronic. We had an awesome day together in August! It’s so exciting to watch corporate America now “get” the possibilities of integrating technology with the healing modalities I’m so passionate about … wow, what a time we live in!
  • The hundreds of people who follow me on Twitter (@HarpForHealing) and the wonderful people I am following. It is a window into people’s lives all over the world. I would never have this opportunity to connect without these unique technical programs.
  • For my lovely parents who will be joining me for the next week of celebrations.

 A few years back, I heard about a gratitude ritual – to list five things each day that I am grateful for. I like to name these things right before I go to sleep. I drift off with a smile on my face and realize how lucky I am for all the wonderful things in my life! I encourage you to try this … it is heart-full habit.  Have a lovely Thanksgiving!

Appreciating your continued support…

TBriggs : November 19, 2010 6:26 AM

It is a wonderful feeling to “touch” someone with the gift of music. Do you have a favorite shop who carries many different “feel good” products? Does your hospital have a gift shop?

Here’s a partial list of how my music is “out and about”:

I’m deeply appreciative of their continued and on-going support. There’s many, many more … but this gives you an idea! 

I’m passionate about connecting with people who want to spread my work—to help people relax, relieve their stress, heal. Let me know if you have contacts that you think I need to connect with … it would be my pleasure!
