Hire a Pianist
To hire a pianist for any occasion or event, care home entertainment or accompanying for exams, please see below. We look forward to hearing from you.
Paula and Hilary are both very talented piano players; they were very helpful with my ABRSM cello exams and helped me pass. Paula accompanied me on the piano in my grade one and Hilary did the same in my grade three. A couple of days before my exam Paula and Hilary both gave me the chance to practice with them. After that I felt much more confident. On the day of my exam, they came twenty minutes early and had another quick rehearsal, as well as that they helped me stay calm and relaxed. In the exam they were very professional and it was clear that they had lots of experience. I would highly recommend Paula and Hilary for your exams. They are both brilliant piano players and know how everything works in the exams. Tilly ~ aged 11.
