About Ellen F

An experienced pianist for events, restaurants, cruise ships, corporate functions, specializing in playing popular classical and jazz music
Pianist
Guernsey

I am a professypianist based in London. As my motto of life I use F.Nietzshe’s quote: ‘One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star’. I have a wide range of music repertoire of diverse styles (minimum 150 pieces). This includes popular music, movie soundtracks, jazz standards, classical music, contemporary music and neoclassical music. My background includes performing (together with my own) music both independently as well as in the company of duet, trio, quartet etc. During the course of my career I took part in lots of concerts as a solo pianist, piano accompanist for singers and as a member of trio. From regular positions as local restaurants and hotels to freelance roles at weddings, parties and other various special events, I have leveraged my experience to provide consistently excellent musical performances and achieve first-rate guest satisfaction. I am fully qualified, having graduated from The Royal Academy of Music in London, where I have obtained MA with Distinctive Honors in Performance. You will find me to be a flexible, artistry person, quick learner, fast sight-reader and I am happy to play requests from guests and adapt my style based on mood and the atmosphere at the venue, following pace and dynamic of the clientele.
