An experienced versatile musician, I play for weddings, private parties, corporate events. I use professionally recorded backing tracks and play a wide variety of music. Classical, Pop, Show tunes, Folk. I can also team up with a young female violinist, harpist or pianist as a duo. I travel up to 100 miles from my home in Bolsover.

"Thank you Arjay for making my Christening very special. As I'm 13 and a bit older than the usual christenings I wanted something more grown up. My uncle really loves his classical music and thought your playing was amazing. I think it was Amazing too and thank you for playing Amazing Grace for me. Can you come back when I'm older and play at my wedding?"

"Arjay turned a great event into a PERFECT celebration. His repertoire is extensive and he is a wonderful violinist. His music really created a touch of class and brought depth and warmth to the occasion. He is extremely flexible as we were requesting music up until the last minute. He arrived early to set up and was extremely professional. Thank you Arjay. You made this event very special."
