About Andrew

Verified profile
Pianist available throughout central Scotland, covering all musical styles. Can provide own digital piano, piano-vocal duo also available.

I am a Glasgow-based pianist and composer. I am available throughout central Scotland for weddings, piano bars, corporate events, parties, etc. With over 20 years' professional experience, I cover a wide variety of musical tastes and styles, and can tailor a programme of music to suit any occasion. I can provide my own digital piano and PA system, if required. While classically-trained, I am equally at home with pop, rock, jazz, musical theatre, film scores, and other styles. I have been playing for weddings and other events for 20 years, and I consistently score 5-star ratings in my reviews. Just as important as great music, is great communication with you, the customer. I am happy to discuss anything and everything in advance, either by email, phone, Skype, whatever suits you. For weddings, I will always make sure to get in touch with your wedding co-ordinator beforehand, to check about practicalities, and ensure that everything runs smoothly on your special day. I also form one half of an exciting new piano-vocal duo, which is also available for weddings, bars, etc : further details are available on request. I have been playing piano since the age of 7, and passed my grade 8 Associated Board exam with Distinction. At the age of 17, I obtained an LTCL (Licentiate of the Trinity College of London) diploma in Piano Performance. From to 1996 to 2012, I accompanied ballet classes at the Studio school of dance, in Glasgow's West End, and became the Senior Pianist there. As well as playing for weekly classes, I also accompanied numerous ballet shows in venues such as the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, the Mitchell Theatre and the SECC. My music can be found on all major streaming/download platforms, such as Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon, Deezer, etc.
