After initial contact and confirming availability, I hold a consultation either in person or via telephone. During this I will get an idea of the overall "feel" of the music. Approximately four weeks before the event I will ask for any definites you want to be played (I am always happy to learn new pieces!) and any that you definitely want me to steer clear of. Any special requests can be made up to three days prior to the event and I will do my best to achieve them.
