About the Author:

Greg Maroney is a pianist and composer of classically influenced New Age solo piano music. His music is emotionally rich yet peaceful, and he plays with a deeply intuitive quality while retaining an element of fresh natural beauty. Greg currently lives with his wife on a small farm in south central Pennsylvania . They have chickens, raise a great deal of their own food, and seek to live peacefully and in harmony with nature.

Review:

Greg Maroney is making huge inroads into getting all of his recorded music transcribed into sheet music form and making it available to pianists all over the world! I have been very happily along for the ride as proof-reader and editor and Greg s sheet music is some of my favorite music to play and to teach my more advanced piano students. Transcribed by the composer himself, this music is very accurate, and any (very few) variations from the original recordings reflect how Greg plays the music now.
Wind Chimes is Greg's latest sheet music release and contains all fourteen songs from the 2005 album plus a somewhat simplified version of Along the Codorus. The music is beautifully transcribed and the layout is clear and roomy. The book is spiral-bound, printed on bright white paper stock, and the front and back covers are full color reproductions of the artwork for the CD. Expression is clearly marked and metronome settings are included. A few of the pieces have difficult key signatures (see below), and most are at an upper-intermediate-advanced playing level. There is a variety of moods and playing styles in the music, making this book especially fun to sit and play through, revisiting some old favorites ( Breathe and Dancing Dogs ) and rediscovering some new ones ( Mountain Snow and Sanctuary Medley ). This is an excellent sheet music collection and I recommend it highly. The song titles, the keys they are in, and the number of pages are listed below:
Dance of the Imagination - Key of E (4 sharps) - 8 pages
Breathe - Key of C# minor (4 sharps) - 13 pages
Mountain Snow - Key of Gb (6 flats) - 12 pages
