About Barbara

Barbara Krajewska's profile picture
Violinist
Teddington
Public liability insurance
Amazing Violinist experienced in playing solo, with bands and orchestras. Classical, pop, jazz, rock and electronic. Studio musician.

My name is Barbara and I am a professional violinist based in South West London. If you hear someone humming or singing around the corner: it is probably me. From a young age I was drawn to music. Once I picked up an instrument for the first time, there was no turning back. By high school, the dream of becoming a professional musician crystallised, and years of rehearsals and music lessons later, I am now the professional violinist I wanted to be. Classical training combined with a passion for all varieties of music gives me a wonderful tool to influence people's lives through sound, to inspire; to see people dance and smile. From pop, jazz, R&B to Broadway hits and classical pieces... I can create any kind of mood for your special day. If you are looking for a top musician who will be a pleasure to work with, please get in touch and schedule a meeting to tailor- make your musicial needs.

Barbara was nothing short of amazing from original booking through to the performance for our wedding and we had lots of compliments from the guests throughout - we can’t thank her enough and thoroughly recommend her to anyone wanting an elegant, professional and talented musician. Barbara played all our song requests and incorporated some others, arrived early to the venue to set up and prepare and was very patient with us when I turned up late! We can’t fault anything, which is rare for me but Barbara was truly five star in every respect!!

You were so kind from the moment we met, all the way to the wedding itself, and we both loved you so much!! It was sad that we didn't have enough time to talk with you on that day, such a busy day than we expected..., but every one of our guests said that the violinist was so good and we were really happy that we got to have you play at our wedding. We just loved your music on our wedding day and cannot thank you enough for your presence on that day!!!

Just wanted to say thank you for playing at our wedding. Everyone commented how your playing added the ambiance of the occasion, particulary during the reception drinks after the ceremony. We are happy to recommend you to anyone else who may be thinking of hiring you for their own event.
