Naomi was punctual, friendly, and adapted to our event with the greatest of ease! She had a portfolio of pieces ready to play and was also open to any suggestions from our guests and organisers. The best review would be to say that our guests profusely complimented her piano playing. I would highly recommend booking Naomi as she fulfilled exactly what we expected and more!
Excellent pianist who was really friendly with my ABRSM pupils and kept them calm with her wonderful playing. Will use again.
