I'm a classically trained virtuoso pianist who has performed on the concert stage in the US and abroad. I have also played the standards of Gershwin, Cole Porter, Jerome Kern, Richard Rodgers, Harold Arlen, Irving Berlin, and many other composers in restaurants, lounges, country clubs, and hotels. In addition, I have played for weddings (ceremonies and cocktail hours), parties, fundraisers, corporate events, and black-tie affairs. I always show up on time, impeccably groomed and dressed to my clients' specifications. I gladly honor all special requests, and if I don't know a particular song, I purchase it and learn it. I will play for you before the event takes place, or play for you over the telephone to ensure you are completely satisfied with the music. My goal is always the same: to give 100% of myself to my clients, to have my great love of music be readily apparent, and to have my clients and their guests remember the music long after the event is over. I primarily perform solo, but can bring a singer or violinist if required.

Richard is a wonderful pianist. We hired him to play piano music during our cocktail hour and the first hour of dinner. He learned multiple pieces for me, and he played everything so flawlesssly. I highly recommend him, and I hope we can find an opportunity to use his services again.

Richard was a pleasure to work with. He was prompt, professional and musically excellent. He played the special pieces I requested and did some research trying to locate a more obscure piece. He did an outstanding job of judging the music tempo and volume needed for a crowd of 160. He responded quickly and we had a good phone conversation at the outset. I would eagerly hire him again for another event.
