Can you play outside?

My digital piano can easily be set up outside – weather permitting! I always bring with me the necessary extension leads to ensure that most outside positions are possible. Should power not be available not a problem! I have a battery / Power inverter to power my keyboard and PA system.

Do you only play at events in Melbourne?

I can cover areas up to 150kms such as Geelong, Mornington Peninsula, Yarra Valley, Daylesford. Greater distances are possible upon written request.

If I complete an online booking form do I have to go ahead with the booking?

No. Completing an online booking form in the first instance is just a good way of enquiring about my availability for a particular date, and for collecting the essential information about the Wedding or Event that you are planning.

Do you supply your own piano?

I have my own portable, digital piano Roland RD700NX that looks and sounds great. It’s easy to move from one place to another too, and can even be situated outside!

How do we/I go about compiling a playlist of music?

There are a number of ways that you can create playlists of music for your Wedding or Event. If you have downloaded one of my Repertoire Lists then you will see that I have a large range of music available in my repertoire.

Using one of these lists to guide you, you might like to:

  • Go through the list selecting the exact pieces you would like – or –
  • Choose a selection of pieces leaving me to ‘fill in the gaps’ with pieces of music in a similar style – or –
  • Ask me to select pieces according to specific styles that you choose

In other words, you are welcome to be as prescriptive or as general as you like. A good function pianist is able to ‘read the mood’ of a room, and so I always try to enhance and compliment the atmosphere with my choices of music, even if working to a list that has been previously selected.

Do you do requests?

I am always very happy to accommodate special requests. Have a look at my extensive repertoire list to see if the music you would like is already in my repertoire. If not, then with some advance notice before your Wedding or Event I can either obtain or transcribe the music for you. There is no extra charge for this. If you or one of your guests would like a special request ‘on the day’ itself, then I will always do my best to play it – essentially, if I ‘know the tune’, I can usually play it, but if the piece of music is foreign to me, then this might not be possible!

Will I have to pay a deposit to secure a booking?

A deposit totalling the first $30 of the total fee is usually requested to secure your booking.
