Customer questions

How much time do you need to set up?

Set-up time is very minimal if I am performing on the acoustic piano at your venue. If I have to set-up my own equipment, 30 minutes is sufficient. However, to be on the safe side, I normally arrive 1 hour prior the start of the event.

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

Yes, of course , I am more than happy to perform on the acoustic piano at your chosen venue. It is essential that the piano is in working order and in tune, therefore I personally contact the venue prior to the event to discuss all the details. If the piano is not suitable for playing, I can provide my own digital keyboard.

Are you able to bring your own piano or keyboard?

Yes, absolutely.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

You are more than welcome to request the song you love and I will do my best to accommocate your ideas. Always happy to enrich my repertoire with music that is special for you!

Our day did not go as planned due to weather conditions and hotel communications however Urte seemed to take it in her stride. Her performance was immaculate I just wish I could have heard more. Apologies for the mix ups Urte.

Urte played for our wedding reception, dinner and turn-around. We were very happy with her music, and our guests were really entertained by her ability to play their spontaneous requests!

We wanted classical music for our wedding ceremony so booking a pianist seemed to be the best option. The music Urte played was such a lovely touch to our day! Thank you!!
