Fred McKinnon is a Georgia-based pianist and composer. His music is ideal for devotional times of prayer, meditation, instrumental worship, soaking worship, studying music, sleeping music, and relaxation music. It includes both solo piano and orchestrated music that is perfect for personal listening, soundtracks, and film scoring. His desire is that the music he creates would inspire others in their faith or personal times of contemplation. Some have characterized these piano instrumentals as healing music, background music, prophetic music, study music, meditation music, calming music, soothing music, and relaxing music. In religious settings, Fred's music has been played as background music for soaking worship, altar calls, prelude music, and music for personal and corporate prayer and devotions. Fred McKinnon's instrumental music is also frequently used in schools and classrooms because of the calming affect it has on children and is used to help people rest and sleep better, such as those with insomnia or sleep disorders. Another frequent use of this music is in the world of fitness and physical care, such as yoga, massage therapy, and stretch or de-stress classes.
