Performing as a Pianist in Dorset
I always look forward to performing as a pianist in Dorset. It’s not too far for me to travel and I just love the area. In fact,, I very nearly moved to Dorset at one time, but I had work to consider and my proximity to London. Luckily for me, I am now regularly hired as a pianist in Dorset for wedding and civil partnership ceremonies.
Although, I perform classical piano music for ceremonies, I can also provide other styles of music for the rest of the day. Wedding pianists are often required to play many styles and genres of music. My repertoire ranges from Bach and Chopin to Hoagy Carmichael, the Beatles, and Coldplay. I have to say that my main musical interests, however, lie in the music from the jazz area. My main influences being musicians like Nat King Cole, Louis Armstrong, Oscar Peterson, and Ella Fitzgerald. The music I play is easy on the ear and consists of tunes we all know and love. Above all, I try and make my piano music entertaining.
My Work as a Sing-along Pianist in Dorset
Very recently I have been hired as sing-along pianist for a number of events in the Dorset area. These events are great fun and I provide all the song sheets. This means that all you have to provide is some enthusiasm and some hearty voices. Also, I dress as a typical Cockney pianist with a Bowler hat, waistcoat, neckerchief, pocket watch, grandad shirt, etc.
Please see the sing-a-long page for loads more information and a list of songs that I play for this type of thing.
Also, please don’t just stay on this page. The rest of the site contains loads of different styles of piano music and does explain the different services that I can offer.
