Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

The variety of styles that I include in my repertoire and the variety of instruments that I play. My audiences particularly love the cor anglais with it's beautifully expressive, mellow and lyrical character.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I've played in music festivals in churches and concert halls around the UK as well as the USA and Zimbabwe. As an orchestral musician I've played in the Royal Albert Hall, The Royal Festival Hall, the Free Trade Hall and The Bridgewater Hall. I've also given afternoon recitals on cruise ships.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Vladimir Horowitz, Marta Argerich, Duke Ellington, Winifred Atwell, Boots Randolph, Charlie Kunz, Ella Fitzgerald, Albrecht Mayer - to name a very few!

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

I am always willing to be flexible so please let me know if your plans change.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Definitely! I can prepare a playlist of atmospheric music suitable for the occasion which will fill any gaps between sets. All my backing tracks are saved onto an iPod and I use BackTrax to access them. I create a separate playlist for each event. This may incur an additional fee depending on the timing of the event.

How much time do you need to set up?

Usually around 45 to 60 minutes before the performance starts but this depends on access to the car park and the size of the venue.

If I have a piano at my venue, are you happy to perform on that?

Yes, of course! - as long as the instrument is in good working order and tuned for the event.

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

My set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests have an amazing time. However, I'm definitely happy to discuss any special requests.

Are you able to bring your own piano or keyboard?

Unfortunately my keyboard is too large to transport by car.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes, of course! As long as the score and backing track, if required, is available then I would be very happy to prepare this for you. There is an additional fee of £30 for this service.
