Wish we could give more than 5 stars! From our very first chat to the day of the wedding, Brooksley was everything you would want a professional to be: kind, thorough, confident, accommodating, encouraging, excited, organized, quick to respond, and extremely talented! My only regret is that I didn't take time to chat more with this beautiful person on the day of the wedding! But those who did raved about how sweet and genuine she was! I'm not surprised because that is exactly what I'm imagined via our email conversations! I am forever thankful for the beautifully rich sound she brought to our daughter's wedding!

Brooksley played for our son’s wedding rehearsal dinner. Superb! Professional, pleasant and beautiful music. She worked with me to provide music we liked and even designed an accompaniment to our video. Above and beyond. I would give Brooksley my highest recommendation and I had many compliments from others at the dinner. Superb!

Brooksley played at my daughter’s wedding service. From her first email to the date of the performance she made everything easy for us. She helped us select the music and she was incredibly accommodating to a last minute change in the wedding service. I would request her again if I ever need a violinist. Her music was beautiful!

I booked Brooksley to help play some songs for my engagement, and she was extremely helpful every step of the way. She made sure everything was perfect, and personalized the song requests that I sent her. Brooksely was very responsive with any questions I had, and gave great suggestions to facilitate the entire morning. The music itself was fantastic, and I highly recommend her for any type of party/gathering.
