Listen to Music

Welcome to the music room at The Ranch! The chairs in here are really comfortable. I see one right there that’s calling your name!

This is a great place to clear your mind, soothe your soul, and heal your heart.

There once was a king who was tormented by an evil spirit. But whenever a young boy named David took out his harp to play, the evil spirit fled and relief came to the king.

“Whenever the spirit from God came upon Saul, David would take his harp and play. Then relief would come to Saul; he would feel better, and the evil spirit would leave him” (1 Samuel 16:23).

I believe this music can do the same for you.

So get comfortable and relax. Click a playlist next to any album you’d like to hear, then close your eyes and let the music do the rest.

P.S. I’ve also put together TWO 5-hour playlists of some of the best piano music on the planet! One is for year-round listening and the other is for Christmas. Each playlist features over 90 songs from 20 albums and 15 different artists (including my sister Marilyn Byrnes and me!)

Just click below to listen on Pandora, Spotify, YouTube, Apple Music or right here on this website.
