With over 15 years of professional experience playing in weddings, worship services, parties, and much more, I have the knowledge and musical ability to make your event whatever you want it to be. Hire me to play solo piano, organ, guitar, flute, or to lead contemporary or traditional worship. I am also a classically trained vocalist. My repertoire ranges from Beethoven to the Beetles, from Rascal Flatts to Etta James.
I have an extensive musical library! Come for a listening session and we can find what's right for you. If you already have a specific song, I can find it and have it ready in 1 week. I am comfortable with chord sheets and traditional music.
Have keyboard, will travel!
Christina was very responsive to an unusual event that was a graduation ceremony for the first CNA mentoring program at our retirement community. She listened carefully to the requests from our Administrator, prepared the desired type of songs on the piano, and practiced beautiful vocals for "You Raise Me Up." She came to the event well prepared, played well for the rehearsal as well as before and during the ceremony. The graduates and audience were impressed with her music. We would definitely hire Christina again.
We asked Christina to be the pianist at our wedding ceremony and reception. She did an amazing job keeping our guests entertained throughout. Prior to the wedding, Christina was very easy to communicate and coordinate with, working with us on our specific needs (such as songs requested). Her spectacular performance the day of was proof of how much she had prepared. Great pianist, highly recommended!
I have played along side Christina in church for about 2 years. Her music ability is amazing. She knows how to pick a song off the top of her head and play it without missing a beat. I would recommend her for anything.
Christina is my daughter's piano instructor. She is an incredible instructor with patience, understanding, encouragement, and enough rigor to produce wonderful results in her students.
I have also been blessed with the joy of listening to her performance at the end of my daughter's recitals. Her talent and experience are evident in her performances. She is a true joy and pleasure to experience. I left wanting to hear more.
Thank you, Christina, for your wonderful performances but most of all, for the fantastic instruction you have given my child!
Christina played for my wedding in April 2011. Everything went great! She played exactly what I asked for and it was beautiful. We had two vocalists sing a duet whom she had not rehearsed with prior to the wedding rehearsal. The singers said she was one of the best accompanists they'd ever worked with. Thanks for doing an awesome job and helping to make our day memorable! :)
Response from Christina's Musical Events:
Thanks Juliet!! Yours was one of the most fun and unique weddings I've ever had the pleasure of doing. I had a blast!
Price Range: $150 - $500

What to Expect
I am a well-rounded musician that can handle any atmosphere or genre. If you need a pianist who provides some live classical background music for your private party, a wedding pianist to play your favorite rock song as you walk down the aisle, a vocalist to lead your congregation in camp-meeting revival, or a guitar-strumming country girl to liven up your bachelorette, I'm your gal!
I can bring and set up all of my own equipment, seamlessly integrating into your sound system, or I will provide my own. I am a trained professional audio technician as well as a musician, so my sound will always be perfect for your space.
I love working with people and seeing their responses to my music. I love the weird requests, the old standards, and that new song I've never heard of, but will fall in love with for your event. I'm easy to work with and don't demand a lot of your time. I don't need much notice, or we can plan for months to get your set list just right. It's totally up to you.
I have a Bachelor of Arts in Music, with an Emphasis on Voice. I have been playing the piano for 19 years, and have experience in Christian, Classical, Broadway, and Contemporary music. I have played in around 20 weddings, hundreds of worship services, and many other events including funerals, holiday parties, and birthdays. I have also accompanied choirs, arranged my own music, and dabbled a little in Jazz Improvisation.
My goal for each event is simply to meet and exceed everyone's expectations. I will go the extra mile to be prepared for anything, ready to do whatever is required.
If you're looking for a church pianist, I have played professionally for churches since I was 12 years old including accompanying choirs and playing hymns, as well as playing solo special music. I have experience in traditional, blended, and contemporary praise music, and I am extremely comfortable in any church setting.
A little about my personal life: I have 2 daughters, one in middle school, and one in elementary school. I have lived and worked in the Stockbridge/Atlanta area for over 27 years. I am very responsible (a little bit of a perfectionist), I have NEVER skipped out or failed to show up for a gig, and I enjoy making people happy through music.
Additional Booking Notes
You can either provide a piano or keyboard, however, for an extra fee, I will transport my own keyboard and amplifier to your event. I will only need a place with 2 plugs available.

Good lighting is helpful, but not required. Just let me know so I can bring a lamp.
I cannot set up my equipment if rain is in the forecast and there is not a covered area.
