Pianist Surrey - Classical Piano Music

My Work in Surrey

Being a pianist in Surrey is full of surprises as far as the great variety of venues and the many different kinds of events I have to play for. Surrey is the home to many lovely venues and I have been lucky in that I have been hired to play the piano at many of them throught the years. The venues have ranged from golf clubs such as the very famous Wentworth Golf Club at Virginia Water and Burhill Golf Club at Walton on Thames - to historical buildings such as Sandhurst Military Academy at Camberley and Great Fosters in Egham. I am also called upon to provide piano music in many private homes for parties and family get togethers. I'm lucky to live and work as a pianist in Surrey as there is always an abundance of work.

Events, Parties and Weddings

Most of the time I am booked as a wedding pianist, but Surrey provides me with many other types of events to play for. There a many wedding venues in Surrey and I've played the the piano in quite a lot of them. Other types of events often require my musical services including corporate events and many private parties. Parties can range from birthday parties to Christmas celebrations and they can be in an established venue or they can be in a private home or garden. Don't worry if there is no piano at the venue as I can provide a digital piano free of charge. If you are not sure about the quality of a digital piano then just listen to the music on this site as they were recorded on the same piano that I would bring to your event.

The Music I Play

I am often asked to play classical piano music for events and I have to say that it is something that I really enjoy. When I learned the piano in Yorkshire it was classical music that I first played before branching out into jazz and other styles. Most of the time it is for Surrey based wedding and civil partnership ceremonies that I am required to play classical music for, but I am often asked to provide other styles of music for the rest of the day.

My speciality is jazz and I suppose this is the backbone of my work. The word jazz often frightens people off and i can't blame them when I hear some forms of modern jazz. The style I play is an older style akin to pianists such as George Shearing, Errol Garner and Oscar Peterson. I like good tunes and I like to play the compositions of Cole Porter, Gershwin, Antnio Carlos Jobim and other great songs from the Great American Song Book. Thes songs were performed by many of the great singers such as Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Tony Bennet and are still performed by many of todays vocalists. My style of piano playing utilises thes great songs and I try to make my style of jazz imelodic and enertaining. Other styles I play include latin, classical, pop, rock and ragtime.

A recent trend (especially in London, Surrey, Essex and surrounding areas) has been the demand for sing-a-long pianists and I really enjoy being hired to do this. I can provide song sheets for this and if it is a London themed event, I can dress up as a typical Cockney pianist with bowler hat, grandad shirt, waistcoat, red neckerchief etc. Everyone seems to enjoy a good sing-along and I always enjoy doing them. Quite surprisingly sing-alongs seem to work even during very formal events. Please visit the the sing-along page HERE for more information about this service. Being able to offer different styles of music allows me to offer more versatility as a pianist and I find that my music seems to work for all types of social occasions. I am always willing to learn any requests that you may have.

I can be booked as a pianist for any Christmas party

Christmas Tree

Christmas is upon us again and lots of parties and other festivities have to be planned. I am often hiredas a pianist for Christmas parties - especially in London. Pianists are plentiful in South East England but there are so many parties happening that there is more than enough work for most of them. I am often asked to provide background dinner music, but Christmas often demands music of a more lively nature, and people often like to have a sing song. I  play lots of Christmas songs, but here are just two Christmas song medleys that I can provide song sheets for: 

Christmas Sing-along Sheet 1

Away in a Manger
Good Christian Men Rejoice
God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen
Silent Night
I Saw Three Ships
Hark the Herald Angels
O Come All Ye Faithful

Christmas Sing-along Sheet 2

The First Noel
While Shepherds Watched
O Little Town of Bethlehem
Once in Royal David's City
Good King Wenceslas
Ding Dong Merrily on High
We Three Kings of Orient Are

Christmas Sing-along Sheet 3

Deck the Halls
Jingle Bells
The Holly and the Ivy
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
We Wish You a Merry Christmas
The Twelve Days of Christmas

Christmas Sing-along Sheet 4

Please note that I am always willing to learn any requests that you may have.

Baby Grand Piano Shell Hire

 

 

A baby grand piano shell is available for those occasions where a normal digital piano just wouldn’t look quite right. This can be set up in about 45 minutes and it holds a conventional digital piano. A lot of people think that it is a real grand piano when they see it and are surprised when they find out that it is just a shell with a keyboard inside.It only costs an additional £80 for Eugene to bring this piece of equipment with him to an event. That is a small fraction of what it would be to hire a grand piano from a supplier.

There are a few limitations on where Eugene can offer this service, but it is fine for most situations. There are restrictions in Central Hertfordshire and other major cities due to parking problems. Please contact Eugene and he will try and get around any obstacles.

 Baby Grand Piano Shell 4

 

 

Baby Grand Piano Shell 3

There are limitations on where I'm able to offer the use of this digital baby grand piano. There are definitely restrictions in Central London and other major cities due to parking problems, but please contact me and I will try and get around any obstacles.

Baby Grand Piano Shell 2

I will carry on offering the Yamaha P155 digital piano at no additional extra cost. This instrument is very smart looking and is perfect for most events. See image below.
