One of my favorite things to do is to arrange music specifically for clients. Listen to my audio files for a couple of examples of songs that I have arranged for the wedding ceremonies of individual clients.

The sound of the classical guitar can provide the perfect atmosphere of elegance and intimacy for a wedding ceremony, dinner, wine tasting, or any other event. I enjoy working with clients to make sure the music is exactly what they want for their event.
Wedding Ceremonies are a particular interest of mine. I have been performing music for wedding ceremonies for more than 20 years, and I find it to be among the most rewarding and interesting work I do. Every wedding is as unique as the couple themselves, and I find the entire process of preparation for a wedding to be very satisfying. From working with the couple as they choose the ceremony music to the actual performance of the music on the couple's special day, I enjoy the whole process. It's always an honor to be able to help to create exactly the ambiance that a couple wants for their wedding.
