What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I always try my best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let me know. When you book me I usually keep most of the day free.
How much time do you need to set up?
Half an hour, but I usually get there an hour before.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
Yes of course, personal requests are also available that are not on my sample list.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes, I bring my own instrument and equipment. All I need is a chair without arms please.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
If a song isn't included in my sample repertoire list I most likely have an arrangement already. If not, I am happy to learn and prepare a special song request for you.
