TRIUMPHANT was initially composed with runners and athletes in mind.
You can watch a video of Triumphant below:
Here is another video I created featuring the music from Triumphant:
This video is dedicated to motivate each of us to live a TRIUMPHANT life – no matter what we do. It’s about dreaming big and living a purposeful life, focused and committed to doing the best and being the best we can be. It’s about being TRIUMPHANT! The music helps the listener focus on accomplishment, being purpose driven, and feeling motivated to excel and to succeed. A minus track version of TRIUMPHANT (where the piano part has been taken out) to enable piano players to “play along” with the professional musicians on the MP3. They may use the track at home in their practice and also at piano recitals, concerts, school talent shows, etc. The music is fun to play on the piano, especially when playing along with the minus track (which is available with this download).
