I can lead hymns if required.
My repertoire is expanding all the time and I would be happy to compose an arrangement of your favourite piece or song on request.
Do you have different line-up options?
Yes. As well as performing as solo violin I play in a String Quartet. We also reduce to a String Trio & String Duo (Violin & Cello).
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.
How much time do you need to set up?
I usually arrive at the venue half an hour before the booking. Its only myself, my violin and my music stand so I don't need much time to set up!
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
Yes. I would be happy to play any song/piece from my list. I usually send out a music choices form for you to fill in and I would be happy to help you choose your music. I am happy to play requests if chosen in advance.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes. It's just my music stand and my violin, and of course myself!
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
Yes. If there is a special song/piece you'd like me to learn I would be happy to do this for you. If its more than one song/piece their may be a small fee to create or source an arrangement.
