What if my timings change after I've booked you?

If timings change slightly in the run up to the event, just let me know. I try my best to be flexible.

How much time do you need to set up?

For church services, I always arrive at least an hour in advanced to check the acoustic and where to play from etc.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

You are welcome to request certain pieces and I will oblige if possible. Obviously the more notice I have, the more likely it will be to find / practice the piece(s) you would like.
