Alicia was amazing. A true professional from beginning to end, I am super happy I found Alicia on Encore. I booked Alicia for my wedding and she played beautifully. There are so many musicians to choose from on Encore but I would not hesitate to choose Alicia again. If you are looking for a pianist that is reliable, professional and plays from the heart - I highly recommend Alicia. Thank you so much Alicia for making my day so special.

Alicia was a delight to listen to, a fact reiterated by all the guests. She also showed complete professionalism and adaptability whilst playing at an unrehearsed ceremony. Her choice of music to accompany our choice of set pieces was in keeping with the style, mood and ambiance of the ceremony, producing beautiful renditions.

Alicia gave us a wonderful programme and a spellbinding performance. The audience were completely enthralled by her presence at the keyboard and the sensitivity of her playing.
