Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

My clients love that I can adapt my performances to fit perfectly with whichever ambience they are looking for! Whether they want energy for an upbeat party or elegance at a formal dinner party, I am happy to fit my clients needs. My clients also appreciate my very friendly and approachable nature - I want to make things as easy as possible for you!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I have performed at many of the major concert halls around the UK including the Royal Festival Hall at the Southbank Centre, St. John's Smith Square in London and St. David's Hall in Cardiff. Other highlights include performing at the world famous Ronnie Scotts Jazz club in Soho and at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I love so many different types of music - ranging from classical to pop to folk - so my influences are incredibly varied! In the popular music world, I love a bit of dance music so artists like Clean Bandit and Major Lazer are definitely up there. For classical music, I think Dvorak, Tchaikovsky & Grieg are beautiful.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

I have performed live on ITV's 'The Voice' behind the legend that is Jennifer Hudson! I have also performed on ITV's 'Britains Got Talent - The Champions' which was incredibly exciting!

Do you have different line-up options?

I perform both the acoustic and electric violin. Clients can also choose between performances with professional backing tracks or performances of pure unaccompanied violin.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I always try to be as flexible as possible to make sure your event runs just how you want it to! If your timings change, please let me know as soon as possible and I will do my best to adapt to the changes.

How much time do you need to set up?

This can vary per event due to different requirements, and can be discussed on booking, but on average I will arrive from 45 minutes to 1 hour before the event starts to set up and perform any necessary sound checks.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

Yes you can! From years of experience, I have built up great set-lists which are guaranteed to create the ambience you desire. I am, however, more than happy to discuss any preferences you may have and to tailor the event exactly to your needs.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, I bring all my own instruments, whether that be my acoustic violin, electric violin or both! I also have my own PA system and clip-on microphones for events which require it. If performing outside, I require adequate cover to protect me and my equipment from the weather, e.g. gazebos or marquees, which the client must provide.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Yes I am happy to take specific songs requests and frequently do so! There is a fee of £20 per request, which takes into account the time taken to source the new music and to rehearse it. Bookings priced at £350 and over get 3 song requests included in the price!

Naomi's violin performances were a wonderful addition to my event. What I liked most is that she took time out to understand the nature of the event, type of music and she offered suggestions. Naomi was able to perform 3 specific song requests as well as creating a highly suitable set list for the rest of the evening. Adding live music by a top class professional player took the event to another level, This was very much appreciated by the guests. Highly recommended professional musician!
