What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I will always try my best to be as flexible as possible in the lead up to any event. Communication is the key so if there are any problems after making the booking, just let me know!

iPod service is available upon request before the event when booking.
How much time do you need to set up?
15 - 20 minutes is ample time to set up and be ready to perform.

Yes, absolutely! I will bring my own instrument and equipment as well as my own backing tracks and sound system. When performing with an accompanist, we can bring our own keyboard if required.
