Wedding pianist

Reviews

“We had requested Michael to be the pianist to play at our son’s wedding as he had such a wide repertoire and it was important for us to have a mixture of different styles – i.e. classical, popular and jazz. Michael is an extremely affable person. He was happy to play all the pieces we requested from his extensive repertoire and all the guests felt really comfortable with him playing them during the wedding breakfast. He added that extra sparkle to the event.”
