About Moments of Peace

Charles Suniga is known for his unique approach to music. His approach, unlike anyone else, is elegant piano and string melodies called "Moments Of Peace". Charles started composing music at the tender age of 8 years old, before digital keyboards had been invented. During this time, as Charles was composing music, he heard string melodies in his head and in order to release what he heard, he learned to whistle the strings as he played the piano. Later, when digital keyboards were first introduced, Charles began composing the melodies he heard in his head; Piano and Strings combined.

During a very troubling time in Charles' life, he found himself on the Oregon Coast pondering deeply about life. It was then he picked up a stick and wrote "Moments Of Peace" in the sand. Seconds later an ocean wave came and washed it away. It was then that Charles realized… all we have in life are Moments of Peace. And so, Moments of Peace was born. Charles then created each Album to be an hour long of Moments of Peace…. Music beyond words and melodies to help assist you in finding your moment of peace.

Today Charles is well-known and well-respected independent artist who lives in Portland Oregon. Over the years he has produced, composed and recorded 7 albums and two of which were nominated for a Grammy (Spirit Rising and Still in the Moment). The melodies are described as "Heartfelt" , "Enriching", "Captivating" "Romantic" and music that reaches the depth of your soul. Charles plays all his music live, nothing is pre-recorded, so the music breaths with depth and movement. Many music instructors have described Charles' music as "Impossible", as he plays ALL of his piano melodies with one hand, treble and base! While his free hand plays his string melodies.
