Versatile and Highly-Skilled...

Dustin Callahan has performed extensively throughout California as a solo artist presenting standard classical literature and original works, as an accompanist for vocalists, and in chamber ensembles.

As a pianist for parties and events he has performed for weddings, receptions, Christmas parties, cocktail parties and everything in between, even funerals. He plays a wide variety of background music and has performed for several dozen secular and traditional weddings throughout California in recent years.

Dustin is very familiar with the Catholic wedding ceremony, having performed as both pianist and organist for several weddings at the Mission Church at Santa Clara University in California and surrounding areas. He is currently a teacher of applied music and a collaborative pianist for the Marymount California University Choir. With undergraduate degrees in piano performance and composition, Dustin has a Masters of Music in Composition from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music.

Dustin can perform anything from Classical (Chopin, Debussy, Beethoven etc.) to Broadway classics, wedding classics like Schubert's Ave Maria, light jazz and Sinatra, and current pop standards. Upon request, Dustin can also perform any number of his original neo-romantic compositions for piano.

Additional musicians (violin, cello, flute, voice, viola) and instrumentation can be added or modified to perfectly match your entertainment needs.

Upon booking, Dustin will accommodate every last request and learn any song you desire, making your special day even more special.

On some occasions a piano may not be available at the venue; or, perhaps you would like to have music for an outside reception or party. Rest assured, his portable full-sized keyboard features rich acoustic piano sounds that are sure to impress. He also uses a 300 watt full-size keyboard PA with sonic enhancement. Samples are available in the Media section of this site.

Since 2010, he has booked over 40 gigs through Gigmasters and in 2013 was granted the Best of Gigmasters award for having over 20 five-star reviews. With over 10 years of professional piano experience, he will go the extra mile to make your next big event first class.

Book Dustin now and he will personally work with you to ensure that the music is tailored exactly to your needs.

It is difficult for me to put into words what a tremendous addition Dustin's music was to the cocktail hour of our daughter's wedding reception. His piano talents set the mood for a glorious evening. His appearance was impeccable and he is a charming young man. Our guests raved about the ambiance created by his wonderful music. I recommend you leave this play list up to Dustin. He reads the crowd and selects the right music for the moment. My only regret was that we hired him just for the cocktail hour! I could have listened to this top notch musician all evening!

Dustin Callahan did a wonderful job playing piano for our ceremony at the San Diego Museum of Art. My husband and I love animated films, we so had a lot of special requests for the songs we wanted performed during the ceremony. Dustin played every song we asked for and even learned a new song we requested. After the ceremony, we had multiple guests tell us how much they loved the music. Usually people have a violinist or harpist for their wedding, so everyone thought it was so unique to have a pianist instead. Dustin plays beautifully and is very easy to work with. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a personalized experience.

Dustin played at our daughter's engagement party. He was great, easy to work with, personable, very responsive, arrived on time with his own equipment, and his skills were amazing. We left the choice of music to him, and he intuitively knew what our guests wanted. We could not have wished for better.....His performance definitely made the party very special.....Bravo Dustin! Highly recommended.
