Cornel was amazing. He was punctual and delivered his service in a very professional manner. The feedback from my guests were all positive and his contribution to the success of the ceremony was valuable. I have nothing to complain about and appreciate Cornel 100%

Cornel was Excellent! The music Cornel played was perfect for our 40th birthday party. He was interested in wanting to know our brief and delivered it perfectly. Professional, smart and beautiful music. We would definitely use Cornel again and recommend him to anyone looking for a pianist. He also engaged with the children which was wonderful.
