Customer questions

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

I'll always do what I can to accommodate fluctuations in event timings. Just let me know as soon as you know of any changes to the plan.

How much time do you need to set up?

As I play without amplification, set up is quite speedy (though more time is always a good thing)! I can set up in as little as 15 minutes if necessary.

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

Please do make suggestions, it's really useful for me to know what you'd most like to hear. We can work together to make sure the atmosphere is just right.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes! The only thing I might ask for is a chair without arms!

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Absolutely, if it fits the capabilities of the instrument - just ask. Sometimes special requests can incur a small fee to account for extra arrangement/rehearsal time, but whatever your request is, I'll be very happy to talk it through with you.
