Jazz Pianist – Guildford. Also available in other areas of Surrey and UK

Performing as a Pianist in Guildford, Surrey

I work a lot as a pianist in Guildford and around Surrey. The county border is only a few miles away from where I live, so it makes sense for me to do as much work in the county as I can. There are many venues in the Guildford area and I’ve played the piano in many of them at one time or another.

Most of my work in the area is as a wedding pianist, but I do perform at many other types of events.

From a Solo Pianist to a Jazz Band

Without a doubt, most of my work in Surrey is as a solo pianist, but I am also available in larger line-ups right up to a five-piece jazz band. The full range of line-ups include:

  1. Duo – piano and vocals or piano and bass
  2. Trio – piano, bass and vocals or piano, bass and drums
  3. Quartet – piano, bass, drums and vocals or piano, bass, drums and sax
  4. Five Piece Jazz Band – piano, bass, drums, sax and vocals

Whichever line-up you choose, you will find that I try and make my music sit comfortably in any social situation. My aim is to add sparkle to your event without drowning conversation.

The Music

My real passion lies in the music from the jazz era, and my piano style has developed by listening to the great jazz pianists of the past such as: Oscar Peterson, George Shearing, Earl Hines and Erroll Garner.

I play for a lot of weddings and this means that I have to be able to play in all styles. Besides jazz I can play Latin, rock and roll, pop, rock, classical, blues and even singalong.

The demand for me as a singalong pianist in Guildford and around the Surrey area is a recent trend. Furthermore, I have really enjoyed all the Cockney themed events that I have been involved in so far. Please see the singalong page for more details or see my other website at www.uksingalongpianist.co.uk.
