I am a solo and collaborative pianist with a Bachelor of Music Degree in Piano Performance and Pedagogy from Westminster Choir College. I have experience accompanying vocalists, instrumentalists, orchestras and choirs. I acted as a vocal coach for a private voice studio and provided routine accompaniment sessions. I frequently play for weddings and funerals. I am classically trained and able to read sheet music, chord charts and lead sheets. I teach privately and can travel to any region in Maryland, Pennsylvania or Delaware.

Katianne played the piano at my wedding and she did an amazing job! I gave her some songs I wanted her to play and told her while everyone was being seated she could choose some songs herself. Everything sounded wonderful and my mom said when she heard her start playing the song I walked down the aisle to it made her cry. She was very professional and made me feel comfortable that everything would happen just how I envisioned it!
Response from Wedding/Special Occasion Pianist:
Thanks so much April! Your wedding was beautiful and it was my privilege to be a part of it! Best to you! :)

What to Expect
Please expect a flexible musician who is willing to work around you and your schedule! I can play classical repertoire, show-tunes, pop music, and anything else in between. I provide my own transportation and my own equipment, but I'm willing to play on pianos that are already present in the location.
I ask for an hour of one-on-one time with the event planner prior to the event, to work out logistics. If the event is a wedding, I ask to attend the rehearsal. I need to arrive between 30 min-1 hour before the event, to set up. I will then take approximately 15 minutes after the event to clean up and pack up.
I do not require payment until after the event. I require all participants to sign a contract, establishing the terms of service with dates, times and payment details.
18 years ago, my fingers began to tickle the ivories... and I haven't stopped since! After studying piano privately in elementary, middle and high school, I majored in music in college. I received a Bachelor of Music degree in Piano (Summa Cum Laude) from Westminster Choir College, a music college in Princeton, NJ. Since then, I have established myself as a musician in the Baltimore area by teaching music in public schools and establishing a private piano studio. I frequently play for weddings, funerals, banquets and other special occasions.
My love of music and passion for sweet melodies is quite evident when I play. I have received "Superior +" ratings during PMEA piano competitions and my piano playing has been described as "musical" and "lyrical."
Additional Booking Notes
If the piano is provided, I require all of the keys to be working and for it to be decently tuned.
