Ayako did a superb job at our wedding ceremony. She is very professional and also was accommodating to our list of songs. (Varied from classical to modern music) We would definitely choose her again and recommend her to our friends and family. Thanks!

Ayako was a great addition to my cocktail hour. I requested some Jazz standards and had a great time listening to Irving Berlin and Cole Porter, in addition to other Latin jazz requests. Ayako arrived on time and brought her own keyboard, everything worked out as planned. My guests had a great time enjoying her playing, and I thought she was great. Thank you!

Ayako was very professional and accommodating to the music requested for my Wine tasting Party. She presented me with a music selection in advance and remained available via email at all times to ensure we were on the same page. All my guests are VERY close friends who are not afraid to provide honest and direct feedback and Ayako's musical talent and humbled personality was an immediate success. Her music selection was pure perfection. Her attire was charming and appropriate for the occasion. Due to her great performance, we requested an extra hour and she was wiling to work with us. I will definitely hire Ayako for any of my future gatherings. She was fantastic!

Ayako was completely willing to personalize/make suggestions for our "gig" to align with our vision, made excellent recommendations for ceremony music selections, hosted a rehearsal with our vocalist & remained responsive throughout the wedding planning process. We envisioned a romantic ceremony with seamless musical transitions & received just that. Her renditions of the selections were stunning. The entire experience was perfection due in large part to Ayako’s piano playing. We received many compliments on her performance & collaboration with the vocalist. Ayako genuinely loves what she does & we certainly recommend her talents for special occasions.
