I play as part of a string duo, string trio and string quartet.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
This is usually not an issue and I always try to be as flexible as possible. If timings change slightly leading up to the event then please let me know as soon as possible.
How much time do you need to set up?
It usually takes around 15mins for me to set up. I always require a seat and somewhere to store my instrument case and coat, etc.

Yes, absolutely - it's just me, an instrument, music and a music stand.
