About this title


In Notes from a Minor Key: A Memoir of Music, Love, and Healing, Dawn Bailiff eloquently tells the story of her struggle over the debilitating effects of multiple sclerosis that stole her identity as a rising star in the classical music world performing as a piano soloist with notable maestros Leonard Bernstein, Eugene Ormandy, Daniel Barenboim, and Sir Georg Solti.

An alternative to the self-help memoir that attempts to teach you to become enlightened and so heal yourself. Instead, she asks: who says that disease has to be eliminated, just because it exists? Thanks to alternative medicine, indomitable will, and the power of prayer, Bailiff rose from her affliction to become a mother, scholar, writer and teacher. She successfully integrates numerous spiritual concepts into simple wisdom grounded in tenderness, intimacy and reality while embracing an imperfect life.

About the Author:

Formerly a world-class concert pianist and composer, Dawn Bailiff is fluent in five languages and has written for Seattle Post-Intelligence, Seattle Times, The LA Times, and the Baltimore Sun. She currently teaches piano and College English and creative writing. Her translations and poetry and short fiction have received international acclaim.
