Wellness Tool: Free Music to Soothe and Lift Your Spirits

Nan Raphael is a former piccolo soloist with the US Army Field Band. Since leaving the military, she has recorded 5 albums of music (4 of which are hard copy CDs) for piccolo and piano. She thought donating her music and CDs free of charge to hospitals, nursing homes and doctors’ offices was one small way to show her support for those working so hard on the front lines fighting Covid-19.

While one does not automatically think of the piccolo as pleasing to listen to, the last 40 years has seen a wealth of music written for the piccolo with a very different sound than in earlier years. Nan’s CD repertoire is accessible and lovely to listen to; and is suitable as background music in a wide variety of settings.

Please visit her website to listen to offerings from her latest album. If you are interested in the full CDs on offer, for your workplace or home, please email Nan directly at

She thanks you all so very much for all of your tireless work and hopes everyone stays well.
