Solo Piano           Collaborative Piano            Special Occasions

 

I love to perform! Music is my passion, and I enjoy sharing it with others no matter the performance setting. I have extensive experience as a solo pianist and a collaborative pianist and am always searching for new performance opportunities to help me grow as an artist. Please explore the content below for examples of performances I have given!

Accompaniment Services:

     I am available for hire as an accompanist/collaborative pianist. Whether accompanying young musicians or playing with a seasoned chamber ensemble, I am confident in my ability to provide you with quality accompaniment services. For a list of chamber repertoire I've performed, please see my curriculum vitae. My rate is $40/hour ($20/half hour). For longer-term collaboration involving multiple rehearsals and a culminating performance, a flat rate may be discussed as an option. 

Music for Special Occasions:

     I specialize in providing music for weddings, funerals, and other special events requiring light background music. I have a portable digital piano I can bring to your event if a quality keyboard instrument is not available at the site (i.e., acoustic piano or full-size digital piano with weighted keys). A speaker system will need to be provided if sound amplification is desired. See the lists below for examples of music I have performed at various special occasions!
