What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I have a fairly flexible schedule, and so can adapt to a change of timings prior to an engagement. Suitable notice (ideally at least one day before the event) would be much appreciated.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
If hired for a recital, I prefer to select a programme I feel would be appropriate myself, though I am open to suggestions from event organisers for more personal engagements such as weddings.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
I can perform requested pieces if notified in advance. This is certainly possible for weddings, for example, and I have experience of singing requested items for wedding processions or receptions.
