I am a solo pianist offering a variety of services including but not limited to:
classical piano performances with a large range of repertoire (chopin, beethoven, bach, scarlatti, etc.), original piano compositional performances, piano lessons, and piano accompaniment. My solo acts typically take place in settings such as weddings, parties, concert venues, graduations, churches, and recital halls. However, I am very flexible and am open to any performance related commisions. I'm in ownership of a portable studio grand keyboard that I travel with but am comfortable in utilizing instruments provided at the performance location.
I look forward to working with you soon!
Julian Veney has wowed me with many videos of his stylish piano performances. His swift switches between keys and body movement can't convince me of anything other than how into the music he is. It helps me (and I'm sure the audience) escape with him. All of that said, it is a different experience to perform with him. Julian was great at coordinating the mechanics, movement and techniques of our piece so it all looked smooth as a final product, not to mention his work ethic. He had us spend a massive amount of time practicing our piece and would not stop until it was perfect. You can tell this is what he puts in everytime he performs, wether it be pieces to be later posted on Youtube and other sites, or more serious recitals and commissions.
He played so well at our wedding that our guests thought it was a recording! It made the ceremony so much more knowing that we had him playing. Would definitely hire him again!

What to Expect
Any potential client may first of all expect clear communication when in the process of setting up a gig with me. Total cooperation is guaranteed on my part should someone choose to utilize my services. You can expect a quote from me if it is your first time booking me for a gig with a clear range of fees. If there is any specific music you would like for me to perform being vocal about this at least a month in advance will guarantee your musical wishes are met. As for public appearance, you can expect apparel that is appropriate for the occasion (casual, business casual, professional attire etc.). Any and all specific instruction on how to make your event the most meaningful is welcome and encouraged.
