Versatile, experienced professional pianist with extensive repertoire, customized for each audience according to age, nationality, or any musical preference. Special care is taken to keep volume at optimum level to allow guests to converse comfortably. Also, as necessary, I am an expert accompanist able to make the rankest amateur sound professional with brilliant, on-the-spot arrangements placed in the ideal key for the vocalist's range. My long, diverse career in songwriting, production, arranging, and vocal coaching has given me a unique perspective on music's power to move people emotionally depending on how it is played. My recording experience has yielded Grammy nominations, and I've worked with some of the world's best known artists. My degree in classical piano performance, along with my performing background in pop, rock, blues, country, and gospel combine to convey a confidence in my ability to bring the beauty of music to any setting.
