I always enjoy working as a pianist in Cornwall. A lot of this work is as a classical pianist which I do find very satisfying. This can range from playing a few pieces for a ceremony to one or two hours of classical music.
Besides classical music I can play music from many other genres such as latin, pop, rock, ragtime, sing-a-long, jazz and swing. This versatility makes my music suitable for all types of events. Although I play many different genres, my main interest lies in music of the jazz and swing era and my influences are pianists such as George Shearing, Oscar Peterson and Erroll Garner.
There has been a recent trend to book me as a sing-a-long pianist which is something quite new for me. This sort of thing is becoming more and more popular and I can provide all the necessary song sheets. Please visit the sing-a-long page for more information about this. Also please explore the rest of the site to hear the many styles of music I play.

I can provide different types of music for different parts of your wedding day. You can have classical music for the ceremony followed by solo jazz piano for the drinks reception. You can then have mellow dinner music during the wedding breakfast followed by a jazz trio for the evening. You can even have a Cockney sing-a-long as part of your day. Just let me know your preferences and I'll try and accomodate.
Whatever your requirements are - I'm sure that I can help you out. I always provide recorded music while I take my breaks and I can also supply a radio microphone for the speeches.
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
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

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.
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.
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.
