About Darryl

Organist
Wales, UK
Verified profile
Darryl is a brilliant musician, skilled in playing and teaching the organ, piano, and keyboard.

Hello my name is Darryl. I am a very qualified musician, with my specialist instruments being the church organ and the piano. My qualifications include three degrees, two of which are music degrees. Work includes being a part-time musical director, and I have 30 years experience playing for weddings (both church and civil), funerals, church services. I have performed many concerts and recitals on both the piano and the organ and have a vast repertoire in classical and modern. Other functions I have played for include many anniversary celebrations, and social functions. I teach the organ, piano, keyboard, singing and music theory with an outstanding 100 percent student exam pass rate. One of my students has appeared on the local stage in a starring role. If you require, I am also very happy to advise you on music for your occasion and if I don't know a piece, I am willing to learn anything new. Whatever your taste in music I can play it for you.

I booked Darryl to play at my wedding after the resident church organist at my wedding venue was unable to play my choice of music, as they deemed it beyond their ability. After booking Darryl and getting in touch, it became clear that the music for the big day was in very good hands. He knew the pieces I wanted played (Zadok The Priest by Handel and Toccata by Widor, to name a couple) very well and performed them to a very high standard, filling the whole church with the majesty and grace befitting such an occasion. Very helpful throughout and always quick to get in touch to answer questions and discuss ideas, Darryl made the whole process carefree and easy. Extremely friendly and approachable, he felt like one of the family by the time the wedding was upon us. From the point of booking to the final note played, Darryl was the utmost gentleman and professional. He played a key role in making the day as special and memorable as it was. A finer musician would be difficult to find and I'd highly recommend him to anyone. Darryl, thank you for all your help and thank you for helping to create some fantastic memories of a very special day.
