I am a classically trained pianist offering solo performing and arranging as well as collaborative work with instrumentalists or singers for your event.
Price Range: $250-$400
What to Expect
For events, I do my best to meet the needs of the individual customers. I am primarily classically trained, but I also do a fair amount of playing and arranging by ear. For background music, I normally play either light classical music, easy listening, or Christian/worship music if that is requested. If you have specific songs you want I can usually arrange or find music for them, but it depends on what you want. I am also an active collaborator. I love working with singers and/or instrumentalists. If you have something in mind, I may be able to suggest other musicians or people we could work with.
Dynamic and diverse, pianist Alyssa Griffith has been praised for "sheer musicality, intuitive and sympathetic collaboration, and the ability to fully inhabit a musical work." Known within the midwest as a collaborative pianist and pedagogue, Alyssa recently relocated to Richmond, VA, where she will be performing, gigging, teaching young students, and collaborating on art song, instrumental works, arias, and musical theater performance. Alyssa had a Collaborative Piano assistantship at Cincinnati's College Conservatory of Music, and has also performed at the Bayview Festival in Michigan, Interlochen Arts Camp, and internationally with Music Theater Bavaria. Pursuing a Master's degree in Collaborative Piano from CCM after a previous B.M. in Keyboard Pedagogy has inspired Alyssa with a passion for collaboration, exposing music to new audiences, and stimulating youth towards enlightening musical experiences. Her work as an Artist-in-Residence at Twin Towers Life Enriching Communities has taught her to intimately reach out to an audience, giving her the opportunity to individually touch people with the gift of music on a daily basis.
