I am an event pianist who is passionate about providing quality piano entertainment to those who seek it. I have been performing in venues since a young age and feel that my music is the perfect ingredient to creating an enjoyable and memorable atmosphere.
I pride myself in my ability to play a diverse range of music styles. This helps me to put your needs first and play the style of music you most desire while maintaining quality and skill.
I have experience playing weddings, funerals, dinner parties, holiday parties, receptions, retirement parties, and am looking forward to playing at your next event.
Easy to work with, did everything we asked from him, good music, worked out great.
Tim played wonderfully for us and also looked very nice in his suit!
Really appreciated Cherished Music. We booked way last minute, he was supremely helpful in working with us. I think we gave him fairly limited information regarding what to expect, what to do, but I could totally see his professionalism and desire to serve us to make our party night a success. Humble, reasonably priced, easy to work with. Pick Cherished Music for your next event.

What to Expect
You can expect Cherished Music to be professional and courteous from initial quote inquiry, to exiting the event venue after performing.
Arriving early for an event is not only expected, but very important to establishing the right vibe for an evening dinner reception or festive gala. If an arrival/start time is not specified, Cherished Music will be ready to perform fifteen minutes before an event begins to set the mood for the room.
Often services requested of Cherished Music are to provide pleasant background piano music for the client's guests. Cherished Music consistently supplies remarkable music while making a point not to be overbearing or intrusive for those listening.
When performing for more than a few hours in a sitting, a quick three to five minute break may be taken to rest the fingers.
When the designated end time has been reached, Cherished Music will pack up and exit as conveniently and discreetly as possible.
I began playing piano at the age of four and quickly fell in love with the instrument. By eight I began lessons. In high school I published my first CD which had a favorable response and led me to earn a career in piano and composition. I decided to become a proud panther and attended the University of Northern Iowa where I earned a degree in Bachelors of Arts in General Music Studies with an emphasis in Music Composition and Theory.
I currently reside in Austin, TX with my beautiful wife. Here, we are pursuing music careers individually and collectively. Being a man of many hats, some of my dreams are to create music for video games, film and main stream music. I would also like to compose for school bands/orchestras. Most importantly I desire to provide quality entertainment to those who seek it.
Additional Booking Notes
If Cherished Music is supplying equipment for your event, a working power outlet is all that is required. If your venue has a piano then it would be beneficial for both parties to double check that the piano is in tune and will not be locked during the event.

Cherished Music can learn and have prepared song requests before the event, e.g Canon in D, love songs, Frank Sinatra, Jingle-Bells, etc.
Often I will fill the time by making up pleasant, enjoyable, beautiful music on the spot. If you are curious about what this sounds like, I have a SoundCloud account as Tim Ferry III where I have multiple piano songs that I improvised on the spot. https://soundcloud.com/tim-ferry-iii
