Do you have different line-up options?
Of course! I can be booked as a solo artist, but perform frequently with top musicians and can organise ensembles for your event if you are after something on a larger scale.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
Life throws us all a curve ball or two on occasion, so I'll do my best to be flexible if your plans have to change. We can work together to come to a solution, so keep in touch!
How much time do you need to set up?
I arrive at the venue about an hour before the performance time.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
I work with my clients individually to tailor my programme to their event, tastes, and style. If you have special requests I'll always do my best to accommodate, whether it be a favourite piece, a national anthem, or happy birthday!
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Short answer: yes. I bring my instrument and music stand. Sometimes if the performance is seated, I'll ask for a chair to be provided.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
Making your event unforgettable is my speciality, so if there's a favourite piece you would like to hear, chances are I can oblige! Depending on the piece I will give you a quote for the extra rehearsal time and sourcing of the music.
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
The Queen's Birthday concert at Royal Albert Hall in 2018 is high up that list!
