Isabella played at my Daughter's wedding. Guests commented on how beautifully she played and her professionalism. Bride and Groom were able to personalise the music for themselves due to Isabella's vast play list along with a few additional requests. Would recommend without hesitation

I just wanted to thank you again for your delightful playing at Harriet & Jack’s wedding last Saturday at Fletching Church. In particular, you accepted our request to play ‘Farewell to Stromness’, not on your normal repertoire, recorded your mother for the piano backing track, and moreover within an hour or so of the service, adapted the piece, again at our request. You played this beautifully for the entrance of the bride; it was very moving. Thank you again from us all.
