Here’s the story of Beth and her breakthrough: being able to play the piano again after 58 years! and now performing for the world.
What gives people the idea that life is over when obstacles and difficulties show up? How do some people keep going even in the face of difficult circumstances and never give up?
See if Beth’s story doesn’t inspire you too. Never giving up can be a way of life, as it is for Beth.
Beth Green has been chronically ill since the age of 15, and she is in her late 70s. She was being trained as a classical pianist, when, at the age of 15, she became extremely ill and, until a few years ago, she was unable to play the piano or do music again. In her mid-50s, computer-assisted composition became available, and she started to be able to occasionally compose music using a computer. But she still couldn’t play an instrument. Every time she tried, she became even more crippled. She felt hopeless.
In the meantime, despite chronic illness, pain, fatigue and disability, Beth found a way to make a contribution to the world through her amazing intuition. She became an author, counselor, speaker and more, always battling her weakness and disabilities. And then, in 2018, at the age of 73, Beth felt intuitively guided to buy a piano. On faith, she and her husband went for it and bought a beautiful grand piano which she was afraid she would never play.
We have all been stunned at the results — especially Beth. She discovered that she has an amazing ability to improvise on the spot. She may not be able to play the classical pieces she loves, but she is spontaneously and intuitively playing gorgeous music that moves our souls. Despite her disabilities, she has just released her first solo piano album called Peace Beyond Reason: Piano Improvisations from the Soul. She also performs live in person and especially on the internet, and she livestreams a weekly program called Beth Green’s Magical Piano Improvisations. These intuitively-guided improvisations are offered to the world every Thursday at 7 pm Pacific time on her Facebook page, which now has over 10,000 followers. Plus she offers another weekly Facebook show called Granny Rocks! where she offers her commentary, combining her wit and wisdom, and she plays the piano at the same time. How DOES she do it? You can catch the Granny Rocks Show live on Wednesdays at 6:30 pm Pacific. You can find more information on all these offerings and more right here on her website: www.bethgreen.org.
Fifty-eight years after she had to quit playing the piano, Beth has returned home as a musician. How did she do it? She combined her natural gifts with determination, hard work and the capacity to keep hoping. What would you like to do with your life that you haven’t done already? Maybe you can do the same.
