Helping to present you in your best light...
As a classically-trained pianist I have several years experience in accompanying both soloists and groups, including a few years as accompanist (and stand-in musical director) for a male voice choir in Norwich. Whether you are a singer, musician, group or artistic director I am available at the piano.
Although an experienced pianist and quite capable of sight-reading most material, I do prefer to play from a practiced position. With this in mind it is advantageous to provide me with a copy of the manuscript, in the key it is to be performed, sometime before rehearsals begin. This will ensure that the focus is on you and not your accompanist.
Alternatively I can record any piece as a backing track. I have provided this services for many clients who were either preparing for an audition, or perhaps going into a studio and did not have access to a live pianist.
