We loved working with William for our wedding! He played as a soloist during our ceremony and it sounded beautiful. William was very easy to work with, professional, and his classical training is evident! I can't recommend him enough!
William worked with us to arrange processional music, and we loved having him perform at our wedding. He was easy to work with and very reliable.
William was professional, patient, and easy to work with over the course of wedding planning. As a bride, the ceremony was so important, and for me, the music was a pivotal point in the event. William listened to my ideas, and not being a professional musician, he gave me feedback that I understood and developed music tailored to my desires. My husband and I will cherish the music performed for many years to come. I can't recommend William enough!
