Friendly

Scott was fantastic. He played the violin for a proposal in Washington Square Park on a cold, cold day in the middle of the winter and was tolerant and flexible when we had to change the time at the last minute. He suggested songs that perfectly captured the bride-to-be's spirit and played them beautifully. In all of my dealings with him, he was professional and friendly and seemed to genuinely enjoy being a part of the special day. I cannot recommend Scott enough. If I could think of other reasons to hire him, I totally would!

Scott Tran is an amazing talent!

I hired Scott for a surprise engagement for my fiancé in a few weeks ago and he was incredible! I live in Columbus, OH and needed a violinist to play during my proposal, and private dinner for two while in NYC. I was super nervous obviously for the occasion and Scott arrived on time, dressed in his tux and wowed us with his incredible playing. It truly made the evening to have him there. I had specific song choices that even required multiple string parts and Scott went above and beyond to pre-record the parts and it sounded amazing. If you need a violinist for any occasion, hire him right away!

Great professional making it a Memorable Proposal

Scott was a big part of my proposal. He was very professional and flexible on my asks. He even played his violin in the snow at Rockefeller Center for us. I greatly appreciate his part in the proposal and making it a special night I will never forget. I highly recommend Scott for all your musical needs for any occasion. He helped make a fantastic memory.
