Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

No, unless requested and I may be able to put together a group

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

No worries, just always keep me informed and if it’s not a drastic change it should be fine!

How much time do you need to set up?

10-15 mins

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

I always liaise with clients about what type of music they are after, any requests that aren’t “classical” can be played as well but it would be most preferable if sheet music was provided, if not an a charge for arrangement may be applied.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, just a violin and a stand!

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Yes, however depending on what it is and how challenging it is a fee may be negotiable in person (due to the practice time it may take up).

Olympic Stadium (London 2012), Barbican concert hall, Royal festival hall, cadogan hall, Queen Elisabeth hall, Wigmore hall, Milton Court, St Martin in the fields, Bridewell Theatre, St.James Piccadilly, Hatfield house etc. All major London concert venues.
