Hello! I am a passionate violinist who loves performing and teaching. I am available for weddings, concerts, church services, pit orchestra, chamber music, events and anything that is requested. I am also looking to teach as well. Aside from the violin, I can teach viola, cello, and bass. I'm looking forward to working with you!
Just a side note: I will not perform
at any event if it is raining and cold because the temperature is bad for the instrument.
Musically very talented. However, was supposed to play violin for my wedding ceremony. Showed up 20 minutes after ceremony was scheduled to begin. So we waited. Then he stood there amongst my guests, not playing. When asked why he said it was sprinkling and this was a very expensive instrument and it couldn't get wet. While I completely understand that, if he was on time it would not have been raining yet and he could've played at least for me to walk down the aisle as we envisioned. Having no music for our ceremony was a huge disappointment and let down for us.
After ceremony he was still standing around. My friend had directed him to the indoor facilities where reception was taking place to possibly play in there at least. Five minutes later he was still standing there, at which point I directed him to the lodge to play. He finally did so.
He is very good musically, but that seems like a moot point when the whole purpose of him being there was for me to walk down the aisle and that didnt happen. Being 20 minutes late, when he should've been 20 minutes early is unacceptable and messed with the flow of the entire wedding ceremony.
I can only hope he gains more professional experience to accompany his seemingly good musical skills.
Response from Dgybert Jean:
Just to clarify, I didn't play outside because it was cold, windy, and it was raining a little bit. Since we were surrounding by trees the wind also kept blowing water off of the tree as well. Seeing how the weather was I decided not to play outside because the weather wasn't fit for playing outdoor with my instrument. String instruments In general are not fit to play in cold weather because it's bad for the instrument.I could have played outside if I had brought a cheap quality instrument to play on which I didn't have. After the ceremony I was waiting to talk to you to ask where should I play, then you mentioned to go play for the guess inside the lodge. I went in and did so. I had to take a few minutes to warm up my hands before I played because they were very cold and no one came to tell me to play when I took about 2 minutes to warm up my hands before I could play.
Only 2 songs were requested be performed, I played the 2 song requested and even played other song that weren't mentioned in our agreement for the guest. Since you only had requested 2 songs, I could have left because I played the pieces that you wanted but i stayed and accomadated to your request though only 4 minutes of a piece was requested. In general there I just wasn't clear about what you wanted and before I left to come to the wedding I sent a message saying that my phone is currently suspended so I couldn't contact you much the day of the event. Just be more specific in what you want for anyone requested to play for an event in the future.
