What to Expect
I typically discover first of what kind of music you are looking for, find out if there is anything specific, like specific songs or certain requests that you'd would like me to play or do, or if it's just general, like "Play cocktail jazz piano." Then depending on how long I need to be playing at the event, I plan repertoire/filler content to fit what the client desires.
Depending on the event, some would like a more laid back background type music, while others it to be more upbeat and forefront, or somewhere in the middle I usually try to get this information, since it means what repertoire is appropriate and how much volume/flashiness to put into it. I am very versatile and love playing all music in all ways, but more importantly I want to client to be happy, so thats why I ask.
Singing or additional instruments may be provided upon request.
Normally clients will either have a piano for me, or I can bring my own keyboard.
I usually come in all black attire, dress shirt, pants and shoes, please let me know if I need to wear anything specific.
Started playing piano at age 4. Played for years and years and delved into many styles, trying to learn the secrets and master all of them. My interests became very diversified, soon I took up composing and arranging, then songwriting and music production, which I am able to use everything I've learned on piano and composition and more to accomplish. I am currently studying music production at Berklee Online. I started performing professionally in high school at age 16 when a teacher saw my piano playing and wanted to hire me for a art event. I also was in a small jazz combo that played gigs locally with the high school band director and a few other talented students, I have also done many other solo gigs since.
Additional Booking Notes
Let me know if you have a piano you'd like me to play on. Otherwise I have my own keyboard and amp I can bring. I have a Yamaha MM8. I would probably need at least a 5' ft by 4' ft square of space if I bring my keyboard.
