I bring more than 40 years experience. Along with being a motivational, keynote speaker, I am a classically trained pianist with Masters work from Cincinnati Conservatory of Music. I either provide the musical foundation for your wedding or I can function as your WEDDING PLANNER. And trust me, after more than 40 YEARS of experience, I can add that special MUSICAL touch to your special day!

I play piano as well as organ for weddings, funerals, parties and meetings - wherever music is needed. Hire me for that special "touch" to a party or a corporate event. Background music makes any event great. My styles include ragtime, classical, standards, musicals, pop music and much more. I am available anytime in a couple days notice traveling where I am needed.

Be sure to REQUEST my video on "HOW TO HIRE A COMPETENT MUSICIAN" before you go any further!

Why not learn how to hire the "EXPERT". I'm sure you do NOT want to trust your Wedding to anything less. You only get ONE chance - ONE shot. Allow me to make your event that special event your guests will always remember!

From Pianist Organist to Wedding Planner. I will cover any area you need. My quote is not always the "CHEAPEST". Believe me, after more than 40 years of experience, you will find your investment in my skills is an exceptional value!

When those doors open and you start down the aisle, you do not want to give a 2nd thought to everything being PERFECT! Your pianist/organist MUST be competent!

There has never been a better time to add the gift a music to your event! The news is "doom and gloom"....now is the best time to keep a positive outlook! Allow Elaine to play and/or sing and mark your event as "the best ever". Billy Joel once said: "I think music in itself is healing. It's an explosive expression of humanity. It's something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we're from, everyone loves music".

My passion is YOU. I want to ensure you get the PERFECT outcome!

My training includes Bachelor of Piano Performance from the Dana School of Music, Youngstown State Univ and Master's work at the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music. I have performed on the Delta Queen Steamboat Company as a permanent sub. On piano I perform all types of music for private as well as corporate events and cocktail parties. Oldies, standards, show tunes, current easy listening pop tunes are just a few of the many styles requested. I also play either piano or organ for wedding ceremonies.

I play anything and everything from 40s and 50s to current genres. I play ragtime, Classical and Show Tunes. My voice is a 'Karen Carpenter' style - light and pleasant, relaxing.

Long Term Care and Assisted Living facilities have kept me really busy too! I have a GREAT Senior Citizen program that highlights their favorites and includes a fun "sing-a-long" that is always a hit!

If you're planning a Christmas or Holiday party, I play holiday tunes and always welcome a hearty sing-a-long of favorite Christmas Carols.

Please also visit my other Gigmaster's website to see my profile as a keynote professional speaker. You'll find the links here on this site.

2 ACTION ITEMS: Request "HOW TO HIRE A COMPETENT MUSICIAN" video as well as my "SUGGESTED MUSICAL SELECTIONS" for weddings.

Elaine was EXCEPTIONAL! She was easily able to meet my friend and violinist, for the first time, for our rehearsal dinner and play selections from the Phantom of the Opera beautifully! I also liked how she played a medley of other wedding-appropriate music during the seating of my guest for the ceremony--I hadn't even thought to ask for this (I especially loved that she played music from Twilight). She was on-time, warm, and professional and I would highly recommend her for your special event, money well spent!

No amount of words could say enough about Elaine! She was one of the best parts of my wedding day. I couldn't wait to meet her the day of. She was prompt with responding to my e-mails, and she calmed me down when I was frazzled. Working with Elaine was stress- and worry-free. I can't recommend her highly enough. She even did something extra special at my wedding that I didn't know she was going to do (so it was a surprise to hear it!): She changed a couple words around to one of the songs she played to make it fit my husband and me even more perfectly than the original lyrics. Elaine is ABSOLUTELY incredible. Thank you...thank you...**THANK YOU**!

Elaine was great! She arrived before I planned on, just to make sure that everything for our wedding was perfect. She played beautifully and our guests loved her playing! Would recommend her to anyone in the area!
