Customer questions

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

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time.

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

The list of pieces are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests have a great time. However, I'm definitely happy to chat through and make sure I find what works for your event.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely! I bring everything I need during the performance.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a piece isn't included in the repertoire list there may still be a chance I have played it already. If there is a special piece you'd like me to learn then I'm happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.
