Do you have different line-up options?
Yes, I have a variety of classical and non-classical music prepared. However, I can play any popular music with at least a month's notice.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I do try to be flexible with timings but that would be dependent on travel times and how close it is to the event. However, it is likely I can change timings.
How much time do you need to set up?
About 5-15 minutes, depending on if there are amplifiers etc.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
Yes, however, you can also pick your own non-classical and popular music which you can give to me a month in advance. I am more than happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes, absolutely! I bring my own instrument to play acoustically.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
Yes, I can learn anything with at least a month's notice!
What do your clients love most about your performances?
That I really enjoy every performance.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
I have had the privilege of performing in many prestigious concert venues and events with orchestras and ensembles including the Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, The Barbican, Kensington Palace, Wathen Hall, Eltham Palace, and Budapest music festival, as well as many churches and smaller venues.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
Probably Nicola Benedetti; she has definitely influenced my style of playing a lot.
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
Performing with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Benjamin Britten's 'Sea Preludes' in the Royal Festival Hall, which was completely packed. Something which I will never forget!
