Slava helped me with a surprise proposal event. Even though I hired him in the last minute, he was able to learn playing the song I wanted to propose with. He sent a sample so that we were able to find the key that I can sing. He arrived to the location on time and did a great job with the surprise, and playing the song. I highly recommend him
