Enjoy live piano music specifically tailored to express your taste and style.
Complement your cocktail reception, dinner party or corporate event with music designed to capture the mood and theme of your party. Available for Chicago area wedding receptions, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, holiday parties and celebrations of all kinds, I am a versatile pianist with an extensive and diverse repertoire.
Andrew's piano playing was perfect for our son's wedding reception cocktail hour.
Andrew was very open to any requests that we had before the event and was on time and professional.
Andrew was everything you could ask for in a professional pianist and much more. He was so easy to work with prior to the event, was very accommodating, and made me feel very comfortable. His mix of warm personality and exceptional talent made our event really fantastic. Many of our guests commented how great his playing was, and "where do you find him??" was asked several times. If you are trying to find "the" pianist, don't look any further, Andrew is your guy - you will be thrilled!
He is very talented and personable. He played sing a long Christmas carols for my family, a large and loud crowd and did great. I would book him again in a second!!

What to Expect
I am prompt and personable, and happy to accommodate the wishes of my clients
and their guests. I have been well reviewed for my performance as well as my personality. My clients can expect a hassle-free experience, and their guests can expect to hear their favorite songs performed by a consummate professional.
Playing piano since the age of seven, I initially began playing by ear. Through years of lessons and performing at private events, I have mastered many popular songs including those of Elton John, Billy Joel and the Beatles as well as classic standards by George Gershwin, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin. I have been teaching for twelve years and performing at private events for the past ten.
Whether you are interested in elegant dinner music and classic standards, upbeat jazz and swing or would like your guests to gather around the piano in a lively sing-a-long with popular music and Broadway show tunes, my music will set the perfect tone.
Don’t have a piano? No problem! I can provide a professional digital keyboard for small, intimate gatherings, or larger venues.
Additional Booking Notes
If a piano is not available, I can provide a professional digital keyboard and amplifier for an additional charge.
