Great music, Everton loved to listen and enjoy. Very professional and polite and respectful. Would definitely reccomend. Perfect
Jessica was fantastic. Beforehand, she was very responsive and enthusiastic which was comforting. She also sent through a demo which helped put my mind at ease. On the day, she was on time, played beautifully and made the whole occasion extra special. I would highly recommend her.
Jessica has a small portable amplification system to enable the acoustic violin to be heard in a loud party/wedding environment so that you can benefit from the beautiful sound of the acoustic violin at your event without worrying that it won't be heard!
