The Pianist in Me

From being a small boy I always wanted to be a pianist and that love for the piano has never diminished. I provide piano music for all different kinds of events around Sussex and the home counties, including private parties, product launches, store openings, dinner parties, and corporate events. However, it is as a pianist for weddings that most people hire me, and I must say that this is something that  I really enjoy. I always feel honored to be a part of a couple’s special day.

Being a pianist for weddings involves traveling around Sussex, Surrey, Essex, Kent, and Hampshire. However, I do travel much further afield. More often than not, pianists often prefer to stay close to home, but I enjoy the opportunity to see places of interest and new venues.

The Music

As a wedding pianist I have to be able to play many styles and genres of music. I also have to be able to cope with any requests that a couple may have. Having a large and varied repertoire enables me to provide music for every part of the wedding day.

I was classically trained and I have quite an extensive repertoire of classical music which is often preferred for wedding ceremonies. I also play rock, Latin, pop, blues, and even singalong. Playing all these different styles means that I can cover every part of the wedding day including: the ceremony, drinks reception, the meal, and the evening reception.

As an example, I could play classical for the ceremony, jazz and swing for the drinks reception, mellow pop and rock ballads for the wedding breakfast followed by jazz and more contemporary music for the evening reception, and a good old sing-along to finish the evening off.

To find out more about the different parts of your big day please visit the wedding page.

My varied repertoire also helps when I play the piano for private parties and corporate events. My music has provided a backdrop for many different kinds of functions and themed parties.
