Which venues have you performed at in the past?
I have performed in many venues around London, including the Royal Albert Hall, the Barbican and the Royal Festival Hall. My Harpist and I have also performed at events in Greenwich at the Painted Hall and St Alfeges Church.
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
That would have to be the BBC Proms with the National Youth Orchestra of GB!
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I always try my best to be flexible to help ensure events run as smoothly as possible. I would never double book myself on an event day, so I can leave room for last minute timetable changes. If anything changes in the run up to the event just let me know.
How much time do you need to set up?
As a solo player, 1 hour is sufficient before the performance time. With a harpist, 1.5 hours would be appreciated, to tune the instrument before you guests arrive.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes, absolutely! If you'd like a pianist to accompany the flute, I can supply a keyboard. I also work with a Harpist (The Marissa Duo) and we would provide all the equipment.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
If a song isn't included on my set list, there may still be a chance I already know it. If there is a special song you'd like to be played I am happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £20 for this service to take into account extra practice time. We can also have a Skype consultation with this price to talk through what you'd like.
