Music performed can be from my own repertoire or can be specific pieces of music which are special to you. You could also make your event even more personal by commissioning your own piece of music, which will be composed specifically for you. For weddings I can also provide recordings of any of the music you have chosen for me to play (additional charges apply) so that you have a musical keepsake of your special day.

Dan played at my mothers 80th birthday celebration. We were able to chose pieces that Mam would recognise. Dan even learnt a piece that Mam used to play years ago. Having Dan play at mams celebration just made it an even more beautiful evening.
