Max Highstein’s Music
In addition to guided imagery, Max Highstein enjoys a successful parallel career as a music artist. After composing the music for his first guided imagery programs, he turned his attention to writing music that would stand well on its own. An accomplished pianist with a background in jazz, pop, and classical music, his first two albums featured his keyboard playing along with woodwinds, strings, and percussion. He brought in a number of top Los Angeles session players to play written parts as well as improvise.
The result was two CDs — Touch The Sky, and Stars — that included some of the most heavily played music over a several year period on New Adult Contemporary Radio of the time. Both CDs are still in distribution and receive frequent airplay internationally. The song Full Circle from Touch the Sky has been a theme song for the spiritual teacher and channel Esther Hicks and Abraham.
Max Highstein has gone on to compose a number of other popular music CDs including music for meditation and music for massage and healing. Titles include Path of The Heart, Intuition, Sacred Journeys and many others.

His groundbreaking instrumental albums, Flying Not Falling, and Gratitunes, have been highly lauded, won Global Music Awards, and have been featured heavily on world music, jazz, and new age radio stations internationally.
