Corey accompanied performers at my recent concert. Performers ranged from amateur to professional, from students I teach who are high school age to choir members and musical theatre performers. Corey spent the day with us from our tech run up to the performance. He was friendly, approachable and helpful with useful advice for both my team and the performers. His accompaniment skills are fantastic and I saw performers thrive off of his support. In fact, it is the best I have heard some of them sing! I wouldn't hesitate to hire him again, and would strongly recommend using Corey for your event. It levelled up the standard of my show and has been a highlight for many audience members as well as the performers, and myself.

Corey Gerrard rocked our wedding with his piano skills! The guy knows how to set the vibe just right. From classic tunes to modern hits, he nailed it all. Super easygoing and made our day extra special. If you want a pianist who's as talented as he is, Corey's your guy!
