About Barbara

Violinist

Verified profile
Amazing Violinist experienced in playing solo for weddings, parties, drinks receptions and corporate events.

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 wonderful! She played at our wedding in Windsor and all of the guests commented on how lovely it was having her playing the violin. She was so kind to learn a special song as a tribute to our mum who has passed away and that was very special. Thank you for making our day extra special!

Barbara played at our function on Saturday 7th December and she was amazing. She contacted us to request our chioces of music, however we left this to her to decide on the basis that it was modern and would suit a range of adult ages. She played during our sit down 3 course meal and everyone really enjoyed her music. As this was black tie event, Barbara also wore clothing suitable for the function, this making it all the more brilliant. Barbara played beautifully and there were many comments of praise given. We have hired other musicians in the past but none were as good. We can't recommend her enough and if we ever need another violinist we will be sure to make contact with her again. Thank you for a great nights entertainment. Rate 10 out of 10. Amazing.

Barbara showcased her electric violin skills at the Catering Insight Awards 2019 ceremony, held at the Banking Hall in central London on 28 November. We were highly impressed with her talent, professionalism and efficiency. She ensured she arrived at the venue really early and is very easy and amenable to work with. Our 200+ guests could not get enough of her musical abilities and we received nothing but compliments on how she entertained everyone throughout the night. We’d definitely recommend Barbara for any event and look forward to working with her again.

Barbara played at our wedding this year and made our church service so very special. Her sound is just so beautiful. She has such a wide range of songs she can play that we were able to make the music personal to us. We would not hesitate to go see her play and we cannot recommend her enough if you have an event you need music for.
