Booking header
Performing has always been my passion, especially playing original music. I perform most frequently as a solo pianist, but I have performed with many musical groups.

For the 2011 – 2012 season and beyond, I am seeking opportunities to perform the solo piano music from my recent recordings, but I am also pleased to perform other music and to perform with other people.

Please contact me or phone (615) 473-7127 if you are interested in booking me — or in just sharing ideas — for any of the types of events described below.

Piano Concert

This is a concert for a captive audience and is most likely a ticketed event. It may include just me, in a 60 to 90 minute concert, or it may also include other pianists, for a longer concert. A good example of the latter is a Whisperings concert, which includes three or four pianists from the popular Whisperings Radio.

A piano concert is typically held at a performing arts center, recital hall, school, outdoor festival, or church — anywhere there is a piano, a stage, and ample seating. This type of concert may be sponsored by businesses interested in promoting peaceful piano music to their community, or it may be a fundraiser for charity.

House Concert

A house concert hosts a concert in your home for a small audience of about 30 people or less, which lasts for about 90 minutes. House concerts are growing in popularity across the United States. You can learn more at the Concerts In Your Home website

If you would like to book a house concert, but don't have a piano, a state-of-the-art digital piano can be provided.

Church Events

I perform often at churches, typically playing a song or two during the service, and occasionally taking the role of accompanist. Church organizations may also host a piano concert, as described above.

Bookstore, Coffee House, or Spa

This type of concert is held at businesses that sell music CDs (among other products or services) and have my CDs in stock, and typically features a one- or two-hour music performance for a relaxed, socializing audience.

Special Occasions (Background Music)

This type of concert is usually a private function in need of background music. It may be a wedding, anniversary, holiday party, corporate/university gathering, etc.

For weddings, I will work with you to provide the right music to accompany your ceremony and/or reception. I often include music from other artists/composers for this type of event, as it is expected to receive these kinds of requests.

Cost & Location Information

Total booking cost for an event varies greatly and depends on many factors such as location, date and event type. Please contact me or phone (615) 473-7127 for a quote or to just discuss any ideas you have.

Many of my bookings are in and around Tennessee but I will perform anywhere. If your location is at some distance from Tennessee, please contact me as early as possible. Cost may be reduced if I am able to book more than one event in your area.

Basic Requirements

Some event types, such as a ticketed concert, require an acoustic grand piano, tuned and in good playing condition. For other events, an acoustic piano is preferred but a digital piano/keyboard may be substituted.

I will also be able to incorporate visuals if a screen and projection system can be furnished. For an example of visuals, please see the music video for Masterpeace.
