Verified profile

Piano Hedgehog explores the full range of human emotions through sublime piano music. Booking a superb live pianist is the perfect way to add a touch of class to any party, wedding or special occasion! How many of us can truly say that we absolutely love our jobs? My "work" is also my passion. Without music, the world is a baron place, empty and devoid of emotion and expression. I feel blessed and honoured that my music helps many people to connect with emotion at a deep and enriching level. People frequently comment about the calming and soothing nature of my performance style. As a classically-trained pianist, I now specialise in pop/rock covers, but always with a definite "classical twist" - I've never lost touch with my roots! My training followed the classical route, working my way through the 8 ABRSM grades, and to diploma level and beyond. In this day and age, it is not enough to be skilled in what you do. I recognise that my clients (quite rightly) expect the best possible service from me. This extends far beyond being an exceptional musician. They want me to be professional in every aspect of their dealings with me. I pride myself in my superb communication throughout the booking process right up to the performance, and beyond. I go to great lengths to ensure that the client's peace of mind always comes first. Booking a musician for an event as important as a wedding is, after all, quite stressful. I aim to make the process as smooth as possible, and this is aided by my open and friendly approach with clients. There truly is no such thing as a silly question! Unlike many other pianists, I do not restrict my clients' choice to having to choose from a prescribed list of songs. Instead, I welcome those occasions where a client asks for something I don't currently play! I see it as an opportunity for me personally to explore new songs, and to create a piano arrangement of a new piece of repertoire. And I will always advise on how likely a song is going to be to succeed as a piano track (not every song will work, or sound convincing on the piano, and it's always worth being aware of this and honest about it). My recording and teaching work allows me to express my musicality through different outlets. Many people buy my recordings because they have had such an overwhelmingly beautiful and satisfying experience when hearing me play live. And many others come to me requesting lessons, again, because they've heard what I do live and want to begin their own journey of music-making. Thank you for taking the time to read about my music. Now do something much, much more important.... go ahead and take a LISTEN to what I do!

It’s hard to put into words how good Rob is! From our first conversations we knew he had to be at our wedding. It’s clear to see he enjoys playing the piano and he was so helpful when planning our set list. Our guests were amazed during our wedding breakfast when they realised it wasn’t a recording being played. His ability is of the highest level and better than that he is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. Thank you Rob, you made our day extra special.

Wow, Wow, Wow Firstly, I just want to say a massive massive thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You were absolutely amazing during our wedding day. We couldn't have asked for better music and service from Rob. We've had none stop compliments about you and how fantastic you are. Rob's care and attention to detail was second to none and made us so at ease with our music choices, no request was too much. Honestly, we can't thank you enough and for travelling to us as well. We really appreciate it so much, you made our day perfect.

We had the most magical wedding and with having Rob there to play his amazing music just made it so special. From the moment I contacted Rob he went out of his way to help arrange the surprise I wanted to give my husband to be. Rob was on holiday and he found a piano shop to play the piece of music I wanted as my entrance music and recorded it there and then and sent it to me. Rob was professional throughout the whole process. We can not thank him enough to contributing to making our day the most memorable day ever.

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

I always try my utmost to maintain a flexible approach to my bookings. I understand that people do not always know precise details at the time of booking. If timings change in the run up to the event, just let me know.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Absolutely - I can route an mp3 player through my amplification set-up in between my sets. This is a service which I offer for free on request in advance.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually set up about 60-90 mins before the performance start time. I like to allow plenty of time to ensure that the sound is perfect!

If I have a piano at my venue, are you happy to perform on that?

Yes absolutely! As long as the piano is in tune and in good working order, I'll be delighted to play it.

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

I have a specimen playlist, but it is absolutely not exhaustive! I always hold a Zoom conference (or 2 or 3 conferences if this is helpful) with clients so that we can discuss music choices before the event. It also allows me to play various ideas live during the conference call so that clients can hear what different music choices will sound like.

Are you able to bring your own piano or keyboard?

Yes, absolutely! I can bring a battery-powered system for use outside (if no mains power is available), or I bring a sleek-looking white digital piano for indoor use (or outside with mains power available).

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Of course! If your song choice is not on my set list, I might still know it. And if I need to transcribe it and make a beautiful piano arrangement of it for you, this is also included in the price you pay (up to 3 unique song requests per booking. Additional requests are chargeable @£30 for this service, to take into account transcription & arrangement time)
