Welcome to the website for Don Shearer, a composer whose piano-and-beat instrumental music takes listeners on adventurous tours of the sonic landscape. Don is available to play his artsy instrumental music -- his sound paintings -- to provide an inspiring background for your events. Don also plays a vast repertoire of the 20th century's greatest hits for senior audiences.

In May 2019, Don won his sixth New Mexico Music Award -- this time for Best Contemporary Instrumental. 

Don's latest album -- Strange Terrain -- arrived in 2018. Check it out on CD Baby!

Visit the Senior Set page for Don's song list and a sampling of familiar piano favorites!
