Repertoire

Wedding Piano

  • All couples who have set their wedding date are invited to my studio for a listening and consultation session. Some couples come to this session with definite ideas and others come to pool their thoughts with me. During this session, we'll talk about hiring additional musicians (harp, flute, trumpet, bagpipe, vocal soloist) and I'll play through many samples of music. Phone consults are also encouraged and last minute changes are fine. When piano or organ is not accessible, Jane will bring keyboard and amp

Wedding Rehearsal

  • Whenever possible, I will attend rehearsals.

The Wedding
