I love any opportunity to play beautiful music: wedding ceremonies, background music for parties (holiday, cocktail hour, anniversary, engagement, corporate), accompanying soloists and small groups, and leading sing-alongs for all ages.
I have been playing piano and organ professionally for over ten years. I teach piano and clarinet, sing/play in a band, and lead the church choir. Over the years I have had the privilege to play for many special services and events, each one unique.
I am available for both religious and non-religious events.
Travel considered for additional fee.
Thank you for considering me for your upcoming event - I look forward to planning it with you!
I would highly recommend Janna for any event. She had great communication prior to our event, she arrived on time and was very professional and friendly. We had several guests take her card for future events. You will not be sorry by hiring Janna for your event...on top of all this she is a very talented musician!
Response from Janna Hall - Professional musician:
Thank you for your kind words and thanks again for having me! I had such a wonderful time playing for your event. Everyone was kind and gracious; you clearly have a wonderful team. If you ever need piano music for another event, I'll be there. Congratulations on a successful evening!
Janna did a great job!
Was a great experience
Response from Janna Hall - Professional musician:
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review - it was a pleasure to play for Emily and Chris's wedding! The personal touches throughout from the decorations to the flowers to the personal song selections truly made it a beautiful ceremony. I was honored to be a part of it.
What to Expect
If I do my job right, no one will notice me. After all your event is about you, not about your musicians!
As event background music I include consultation, setup, and tear-down in my quote. I will collect your song requests prior to the event to make sure your favorites are played. I will also provide you with a direct link to my song request website if you'd like to give your guests the opportunity to make song requests for your upcoming event. Your DO NOT PLAY song list will be strictly adhered to when considering your guests' requests. I'll play through the event with minimal break time discussed in advance and included in our contract.
With me as your wedding ceremony musician, you will have an experienced musician providing background music as guests arrive and exit, as well as all specially selected songs during the ceremony. Your ceremony can have as much or as little music as you'd like: featured songs for the candle lighting/sand/unity ritual. a soloist or duet, one or more hymns, light instrumental music accompanying your vows, etc. Let's personalize your ceremony to make it memorable for you as a couple.
I want to make your ceremony all about you and what you want for your special day. I will find your special song requests, whether it's an old hymn, your favorite pop or country hit, or an Irish jig to celebrate your fiancé's heritage. I also will coordinate behind the scenes with your wedding planner and/or the officiant to make sure I know what I need to do to disappear into the background.
With a band director and a home daycare operator as parents, I grew up surrounded by music. At my first recital at age 5, my feet couldn't reach the floor so they kicked along with the music as I played and sang (to the surprise of my parents AND my piano teacher) my selected Christmas tunes. I've loved playing piano ever since.
I am a professional musician. I've been head organist at my church for a number of years and am used to preparing and playing a variety of song selections. My music library is always growing. Other than church services, I'm most commonly hired to play for weddings and funerals, but I also have accompanied special performances, played in pit orchestras for student productions, accompanied soloists, and provided background music for parties. When you hire me for an event you are getting my years of training, countless hours of practice, my musical knowledge and support, and my years of experience.
As the organist at my church (Grace Lutheran, Omro - come by for a service to hear me play!), I play every Sunday morning. I also play for choir practices/performances, as well as Advent and Lenten mid-week services on Wednesday evenings. Music also keeps me busy several nights a week with piano lessons. These standing obligations are not listed on my GigSalad calendar, but please know I will keep these in mind when considering my availability for your event.
Additional Booking Notes
Many venues have a piano or organ available, no additional setup or equipment required. If not, I have a quality professional keyboard. I am thrilled to offer this additional service to my customers with only the minimal requirement of access to an electrical outlet (I have all cords necessary and will be able to set up out of the way of your guests).
Please let me know how I can best provide my services for your event!

I will work with you to design your specific list. Below are most popular wedding music selections.
Commonly requested pieces include:
Pachelbel's "Canon in D"
"Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring"
"The Gift of Love"
"O Perfect Love"
various hymns and arrangements
I have quite a selection of music to choose from, ranging from Classical to Jazz to Disney to Broadway to Pop to New Age, and I'm always picking up additional sheet music and collections. If you have specific requests, I will find and learn them. I love adding to my repertoire!
Acoustic piano, organ, or keyboard (if venue has their own).
If the venue does not have a quality piano, I will need a power source to plug in my professional keyboard.
