Christmas PartyReviewed on December 28, 2019From Wethersfield, CT

Abby played for our family Christmas House Party and did an amazing job. She played a mix of Christmas and regular songs, and even played so we could do a sing along! She's very personable, friendly and professional. We would absolutely hire her again!

Abby Thomsen:

Thank you so much! I truly enjoyed playing for your party and meeting your family. I would love to play for your holiday gatherings in the future if you chose to include piano music. Wishing you all a wonderful New Year!

Abby Thomsen:
