What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I’ll do my best to accommodate time changes, where possible. Unless the day itself changes, I would expect to be fairly flexible to help you in this respect.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Since I am a classical musician, this would usually not apply- I regret to say that I cannot provide such a service.
How much time do you need to set up?
I would not need any time to set up- I can currently only accept gigs with a piano on site. However, I would need a few minutes to try the instrument.
If I have a piano at my venue, are you happy to perform on that?
Definitely, as long as the piano is in working order and in tune, I’ll be very happy to play on it!
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
I’m very happy to take notes of requests- as long as the sheet music is made available to me. In the -rather unlikely - event that I would be asked to perform a piece that is only available from a recording, I might still be able to do that but this would incur an extra fee, depending on the length and complexity of the piece in question.
Are you able to bring your own piano or keyboard?
Sadly, at this point I do not have a portable keyboard or a car for transporting it.
Can you learn song requests before the event?
I’m very happy to take notes of requests- as long as the sheet music is made available to me. If very difficult, it would incur an extra fee of £30. If I were asked to perform a piece that is only available from a recording, I might be able to do that, but this would incur an extra fee, depending on the length and complexity of the piece in question.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
