Versatile pianist able to play in a wide variety of styles and genres. Classically trained, I have been playing from a very early age, won a few music contests growing up, and got a B.M. degree from a four-year liberal arts college. Performed a concerto movement at Orchestra Hall at 17, etc. Able to play by ear, take requests, improvise, accompany, play in groups, (classical, jazz, and dinner /cocktail music being specialities) Can also sight read anything cold. Have a vast repertoire of sheet music, and much of it is memorized. My preference is for more subdued music, classical, many kinds of jazz/blues/pop/instrumental, and I have a lot of experience playing in groups (chamber, jazz, big band, dixieland, accompanying, and so forth). Also willing to act as pianist for singing along to favorite songs. Looking for work at weddings, birthday parties, house parties, anniversaries, funeral and memorial services, and corporate events. I prefer an acoustic piano onsite (hotels, churches, community centers) but am also able to provide an electric keyboard if neccessary. (One with mostly piano, another with a variety of keyboard sounds (clavichord, B3, organ, jazz organ, etc). I have all the "Real books" (Fakebooks) and other standard songbooks used for such events.
