"Matt was very professional. He played the piano for our daughter's wedding. His repertoire was extensive. We provided a play list and prior to the ceremony he asked questions regarding what pieces we may want to add should he need to play longer. This became relevant as the wedding party was delayed in arriving at the church. Matt performed seamlessly. He was very reassuring in the weeks leading up to the wedding and responded to questions quickly. We were very pleased. "
