I am a classical and contemporary pianist/keyboardist specializing in light jazz, improvisation, and collaborative playing; a classical vocalist with a background in classic musical theatre, simple jazz, choral music, and opera; a composer willing to write for any event; and also a conductor who can direct an ensemble for any event.
I am currently studying music composition with an instrumental focus in voice and keyboard at Austin Peay State University.
Price Range: Negotiable depending on event.
Gig Length: 5 - 60 minutes
What to Expect
I am more than willing to accommodate the needs of anyone who requires a pianist, classical singer, original music creator, or a conductor/educator.
I have played piano for numerous events including musical theatre performances, choir performances, church services, weddings, vocal and instrumental recitals, and much more. My singing career has also ranged from classical sacred music to 50s Jazz. I have composed music for choir, small ensembles, student films, solo voice, and musical theatre. I have assumed the role of minister of music at a local Baptist church in which I conducted the choir, sang, and played piano regularly. I have also conducted many choirs and musical ensembles.
Additional Booking Notes
I can be most productive after meeting personally with anyone who requires my services in order to offer the optimal performance.
In most cases I require a piano and any necessary sound equipment.
