  1. Thank you for sharing the beautiful music of Yiruma. I always enjoy listening to piano music. I find it is relaxing and therapeutic. There is something to be said about how music can help stimulate your mind and sharpen your cognitive skills. Do you have any research or thoughts on that in which you can share?

  2. Hi Saber,

    I was so happy when I found this article. I love Yiruma!! I have the 3CD package by Yiruma that you introduced here and it is a “must” in the background especially when I am working on some writing project. It is so soothing and comforting… Just so beautiful and makes you feel inspired. I recommend his CDs to anybody! 🙂

    I have a question. How many songs does his “Song Book” contain? I mainly want to learn how to play “River Flows in You.” Do you know if there is anywhere on the Internet that I can purchase only the piece’s music sheet? Thanks in advance for your help!

    1. Hi Yuko,

      I am so happy that you like my article! I love to listen to Yiruma too. His music keeps me a good company especially when I am alone.

      In the Yiruma Piano Concert Book, there are 27 songs and 132 pages. The songs include the popular “River Flows in You”, “Kiss The Rain”, “May Be”, and others.

      If you want the sheet music of “River Flows In You” only, you can get the piano solo sheet music from Sheet Music Plus. Hope this helps you. Good luck for your learning of this song!

      1. Thank you Saber, for answering all my questions!

        I visited the site and this is exactly what I was looking for.
        When I have questions or need advice about piano piece, I will come back to you again. Once I become more confident to play other pieces by Yiruma, I will definitely purchase the Concert Book through your site. After all, it is way better deal with 27 songs. Thanks again 🙂
