Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

I offer a solo violin line up but this could also be a duo with viola if preferred.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

If your timings change, let me know and I’m happy to try and help if possible.

How much time do you need to set up?

I need very minimal time (5-10 mins) to set up and I’ll be there in good time ahead of the performance.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

You can certainly pick the music you’d like to hear at your event!

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

I bring all the equipment I will need. If the event happens to be outside, I would be some shade to protect my instrument- that’s all.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Of course, however there would be a £35 fee for this in order to cover acquiring music and incorporating into performance.
