What to Expect
Music perfectly tailored to fit your guests, flexibility to adjust should your wishes change, a professional who knows how to adjust his role from foreground to background as appropriate.
I have a background in jazz piano, although I was trained classically as a youngster. I have perfect pitch and can learn any song, so if there is a special piece you'd like for me to learn for your event, that is absolutely no problem. I also have a very large repertoire in every style due to my 30 years in the business. I have worked as a Professor at major universities, and have toured and lived all over the world. I have experience playing worship in both Christian and Jewish settings. I have experience as a vocal coach, and working in musical theater productions both as a rehearsal pianist and as a conductor. I can arrange and compose for any size ensemble, from chamber music to symphony orchestras. I have released four CDs under my own name, and have appeared as a side man on many others. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
Additional Booking Notes
Please let me know if you require me to bring a keyboard. I am most at home playing a piano.
I generally don't make set lists, because I often have to adjust on the fly. If you have suggestions, please don't hesitate to let me know, if I don't know it, I will learn it.
Influences & Inspiration
Jazz is my passion, but I love all styles. Duke Ellington said it best- there are only two types of music- good and bad!
