Performing as a Pianist in South Wales
As a child I always enjoyed visiting South Wales, but now I’m older I get to visit and enjoy the area as a pianist. There are some beautiful areas in the region and some great venues to match. These venues range from village pubs and castles to trendy restaurants and modern luxury hotels. Fortunately, these venues host many different types of events and I play the piano for many of them.
Me as a Wedding Pianist in South Wales
This website is mostly about my work as a sing-along pianist, but South Wales gives me many weddings to play for. In order to be successful as a wedding pianist, I have to be versatile. This is so that I can provide music for each part of the day. In fact, it isn’t uncommon for me to be asked to provide a different style of music for each part of the wedding day. For instance, classical music is a popular choice for ceremonies, while jazz is definitely the in-thing for drinks receptions. Furthermore, the music that would suit a wedding breakfast wouldn’t necessarily suit an evening reception. Fortunately, I play many different styles of music including pop, Latin, rock, classical, blues, and sing-along.
The Baby Grand Piano Shell
Very few venues in South Wales have a piano and any pianist performing in the area would normally use a digital piano. I’m a big fan of digital pianos as they are portable, always in tune and they can be set up anywhere. Nevertheless, there is a problem in that some events require something that looks like a real piano. I have the answer to this with my baby grand piano shell. As its name suggests, this is a shell in the shape of a baby grand piano and it contains a normal digital piano. Furthermore, the result looks good and the whole thing can be set up anywhere.
I charge an extra £80 for this on top of my normal fee.
