I am a professional violinist. I can provide whatever kind of music you want for your special event. I also play in a string duo, string trio, and string quartet. I'm happy to customize my music to fit your needs!
Amanda is a wonderful violinist. She added a beautiful touch of class to my daughter's wedding. She was extremely helpful in selecting the appropriate music and was extremely responsive when we had questions.
I would highly recommend her.
Amanda was easy to work with and was able to play every song we requested at our ceremony. She is very talented and made our special day perfect!
You did a beautiful job! Wish I could have met you! Thank you!
