$75 - $75 per hour
My purpose is to "enhance life through music" and find great joy in creating just the right ambiance for your event. While my primary training is as a classical pianist I am also quite comfortable with pop music stylings, light jazz, and old standards and can provide a very desirable mix for most clients. I know that whatever event it is you are planning it is something special and every detail counts as well as a high degree of professionalism. What I have found is that people appreciate the variety and the sensitivity I bring to their individual needs, as well as the quality of the performance. I really do love what I do!

Some of my recent venues have included the The Denver Country Club, Carnegie Hall (Best of Ambient Piano Awards Ceremony) The Governor's Mansion (Denver), The Stanley Hotel, The Capital Hill building, , grand opening of the Rialto Theater Center and the Centre Culturelle (Manzanillo), Mexico. I have also performed in concert for many years and for some very nice venues such as the Glenn Gould hall in Toronto and across Europe with the Jubilance choir and orchestra. I have done several important corporate client events my most recent being Wells Fargo Bank.

In March of 2016 I will be traveling to Vermont to record a solo piano album at Imaginary Road Studios. The Cd will feature my own ambient piano compositions and will be produced by Will Ackerman, the founder of famed Windam Hill Records. He has produced 27 gold records and several of his artists have won Grammy awards. Exciting!

I was proud to just be chosen as the Front Range artist of choice for the first two Front Range Tedx Talks Events

Academically I have two degrees in piano performance, one from the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, Canada.

I would very much appreciate hearing from you and discussing how we can make your special event even that more special! Always great reviews! I have more videos and recordings on my website.

Gary was easy to work with, flexible with scheduling, and was professional. I couldn't have been happier with choosing Apianist for our entertainment for the evening. Both my staff and our clients were blown away at his ability to play exactly what we had anticipated. I would definitely recommend APianist to any company throwing a corporate event, any person planning a wedding, or just someone looking for an evening of classical piano. Thanks Gary for making our night spectacular!

This was a last minute gig and I could not have asked for a better person. He was prompt, professional and very talented. We didn't have much time to rehearse the day of (about half an hour) then he played another gig in the same location (luckily he was booked already in the same location) for 3 hrs after which he showed up to my concert and was flawless! Wonderful person and I would hire him again in a second.

Gary was very easy and accommodating to work with. He has a great talent as a pianist and we received lots of compliments on his music. We chose 3 unique songs for him to play during our wedding ceremony and he learned and played them flawlessly.
