I'm a local musician out of Appleton, WI. I play piano for weddings and other big occasions, such as fundraisers, private dinners, and provide funeral services.
I have a 22 year background in playing classical, jazz, contemporary, and modern piano. I work with the most talented singers and musicians to make your day as wonderful, worry-free, and as enjoyable as possible!
I work hand in hand with two different vocalists at all times. Depending on availability, I can put any combination of people together you'd like.
P.S. - please note that dates requested in the height of wedding season (June-September) are more expensive as my services are in high demand this time of year. Thank you!
Anthony played at our fundraiser event for 5 hours and didn’t miss a beat! He was absolutely tremendous and we will definitely seek him out in the future. Anthony has a beautiful sound, fun charisma and was able to read the crowd to meet their requests. Thank you, Anthony! Your talents are truly breathtaking!
The music Anthony provided was wonderful! As requested, Anthony provided soft, background music to truly bring our event to a whole new level. Anthony is a superb professional; we highly recommend him and would give him more stars, if possible. Thank you!
Anthony is by far a class act. Very professional and a pleasure to work with. We hired him for our September wedding and we were extremely impressed. Our guests even asked us where we found him! I selected a variety of music of which he played beautifully. We didn't meet with him before hand or hear him play until I walked down the isle. So we were a bit nervous. But, Anthony made the entire process from hiring to playing so smooth that when we have another event where music is needed. He will be there!!
Anthony was great to work with. He answered all of mine and my husband’s questions since I didn’t know much about the requirements of catholic wedding music. He ensured me that everything will be taken care of and that we didn’t have to do anything but pick the songs we wanted. He took care of it all and we didn’t have to do anything else after meeting with him! The music at our ceremony was perfect. Would recommend to anyone whether it is a religious or non religious wedding ceremony!
Anthony was very professional, kind and all around awesome to work with. We are so happy with our decision to have him play at our wedding. We got so many compliments on the music, and skill level! you will not be disappointed if you have him play any event. Brittany and Robert Matuszewski
Choosing Anthony for our pianist was one of the easiest wedding decisions we made. He made the entire process effortless. Anthony was so flexible in meeting with us and coordinating all of our music choices. He was willing to learn new songs for us as well as suggest wonderful choices. He even had a large selection of other artists he works with that could easily be added to accompany him. We were delighted with our entire experience using Anthony as our pianist and music coordinator!
Anthony was great to work with from start to finish. With so many details to nail down for a wedding, I left a lot of the detail in his hand from songs to play to pulling in a singer. The range of songs, from classical to popular songs was no issue at all! I heard great feedback about their talents. We are thankful that we had them there to create a great ambiance without having to do a lot of planning or big spending on our end.

I started playing the piano at the age of four under the instruction of Dr. Allison Clough and later from Dr. Carolyn Wilson.
I have 16 years of classical piano training, 4 years of jazz, and have been playing contemporary and modern piano for 14 years.
I started planning church services for St. Raphael's Church in Oshkosh in 2009. I planned and performed for every Sunday night service and started planning and playing for weddings for church.
I later began playing piano for the mega church, Celebration church, in Green Bay in 2013.
I've been planning music for weddings since 2013 and have been very successful with different musicians and ceremony set ups from Milwaukee to Green Bay.
