If you are looking for a pianist for your event, whatever type it might be, I would be happy to help put together a program that suits you. I have a huge amount of experience performing in various capacities as a pianist and accompanist. This has included solo recitals as well as background music for weddings, funerals and anniversaries and in restaurants, piano bars, care homes and museums. I’m also an experienced accompanist for choirs and orchestras and for music and ballet exams. I play a wide variety of repertoire – although classically trained, I also love playing pop, jazz, soul and crossover music.
Below are examples of music that I use for background-type events – e.g. bars and restaurants, weddings etc. I also have a huge range of more traditional classical piano music which I can play if that would suit your venue better.

I am constantly adding to my music collection so if there is something that you would particularly like to hear played (or not!) or would like to stick with a specific genre of music please do let me know and I’ll add it to my repertoire list.
