There's no need to create bouncy Jazz rhythms or sharp dynamic classical crescendos. On the contrary, the piano can be used to provide a lovely, delicate environment.
The good news is that creating relaxation music is quite easy.
All you need are a few chords, a way to play those chords and a scale to improvise from. In fact, if people knew how easy it was, they'd be playing the piano more and more.For example, let's say you're stressed out and in need of some musical comfort. You go to your piano or keyboard and place your hands on a E Major 7 chord.
This could be the beginning of a nice improvisation.You choose a few more chords from the Key of E major and you can now use the music to help you unwind and forget about your busy day.After a few minutes of playing, you start to feel more relaxed. In fact, it's as if a great weight has been lifted from your shoulders. The music has done it's work of soothing and healing and you feel refreshed and more in touch with yourself.
