Composer/pianist Michael Strening Jr. creates and records piano solos to be used for relaxation, stress relief, meditation, and healing. A life-long composer, Strening pulls inspiration from the contemplative moments that pop up in everyday life, as well as when the natural world interacts with urban environments. Through his music, Strening explores such themes as the day-to-day magic that is all around us, the gifts each season brings, and those moments when memory eases between melancholy, contentment, and hope. When we are able to calm our nervous systems and become one in the moment, we are truly able to appreciate and see the truth and beauty that is usually unnoticed or ignored. This undercurrent runs through each track that Strening brings to life.
Strening understands the importance of slowing down and allowing the body to rest and mend. After struggling with injuries that threatened his solo and touring career, Strening worked extensively with a Licensed Massage Therapist who crafted a rehabilitation plan that allowed Michael to continue his musical career. To show his gratitude for his recovery, his family, and all the beautiful gifts that life presents, Strening has dedicated his solo career to writing music specifically for relaxation, stress relief, and healing. He hopes you will join him on this journey.
