Samantha played for my small, intimate wedding in October '14. She is a talented musician and we were extremely happy with our decision to hire her. She was very easy to work with, professional, and willing to accommodate some unorthodox music requests. I would definitely recommend her.
I work in a long-term care facility and our Life Enrichment program needed something new. I knew Samantha from school and I also knew that she has played violin for the majority of her life. We worked out a day for her to come to our facility and Wow. The residents absolutely loved her. She didn't just sit and play, but she involved the residents. She asked for requests and told mini short stories about her violin history along the way. The residents can't wait to have her back!
Samantha was a dream to work with! During the stressful wedding planning process, Samantha was very easy going and professional. She had a great selection of music to choose from and the quality of sound was perfect! I highly recommend Samantha for any event!
Samantha Rector has been such a great teacher and inspiration for my little Josie. We adore Samantha and how much she has taught my daughter.
I had worked with Samantha in November, 2012, she performed the ceremony music at my wedding. During our preparation time together I found her to be very helpful and professional through the whole process. She walked me through every detail and made sure that aspect of my ceremony was perfect, and it was! -Thank you a thousand times Samantha.
