"Emily was a true professional and an absolute pleasure to work with. Emily researched her audience and adapted her programme to fit around our event. Emily has a real gift and showed a real passion for her music! We can't wait to work with Emily again" – Julie Cain, Virgin Money Manchester Lounge

​"We were privileged to be entertained by Emily at our fundraiser for Everest Base Camp! Emily is incredibly talented and all our guests were thrilled with her performance. We are sure that Emily has a phenomenal future that lies ahead" – Martin Blondel, Steve Prescott Foundation

"It was a real delight to have Emily play for us in the Virgin Money Sheffield Lounge. She played for 3 hours, and created a wonderful festive atmosphere which brought our customers and staff together in the run up to Christmas. At many points throughout her performance our customers enjoyed singing along, standing up and having a dance, or simply relaxing with the beautiful music which filled the entire floor. We had some amazing feedback from customers who told us it was a real pleasure to watch and listen to Emily play. We will certainly look to book Emily again for future events." – Holly Garforth

We couldn’t have been more impressed with Emily and her piano skills for our ceremony and reception drinks. She was absolutely perfect throughout start to finish. I requested for a new song that wasn’t on her music list to be played as my walk down the aisle song and she played it perfectly. She really did set the mood and tone for our wedding from the start. Thank you so much Emily for playing a key part of our special day. We are so so glad we found you to be part of our day making it wonderful.

Emily was INCREDIBLE at our wedding. She kept in contact with us regularly before the event and rang the venue to confirm everything was okay for her set up and took that responsibility from us which was a big help!
On the day she came and set up and played beautifully. She spoke with our family and guests and treated them like friends. She learnt some songs for us which wasn't on her repertoire but you would never know she had only recently learnt them as it sounded so good. Her music really calmed the groom down before the bride walked down the aisle!
She came and spoke to us and congratulated us after her set and was really lovely but also let us go on and enjoy our day. Everyone commented on how good she was.
Thank you so much Emily, would honestly recommend you to anyone and everyone!

Emily is delightful, cheerful and very talented. She played a small grand piano at my birthday bash on 14.03.2020 a wonderful array of classical, jazz and pop. All with great skill and tact while 33 chatted ate and drank around her. She is excellent and I am delighted to recommend her unreservedly.

Emily played piano for our Wedding and was incredible and very talented, she played all songs we requested very well. She played on both keyboard and piano, meaning I could walk down the aisle to my favourite song. We would definitely recommend Emily for any occasion.

Emily is an outstanding pianist. We felt privileged to have her playing at our wedding reception. She is extremely versatile and played for three hours with only short breaks. Her repertoire is impressive, from modern pop to Chopin and all of it was beautifully arranged and performed both on a keyboard and a piano. She created a superb atmosphere and our guests were full of admiration for her talent. I would strongly recommend Emily for your function.

Emily provided the music for our wedding ceremony and drinks reception at a historic venue.
She created two custom arrangements one of which was not, erm a traditional wedding song but came out beautifully on the day. She was also very responsive via email and willingly answered all of our questions about the day.
Highly recommend. Thanks Emily!



  • My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?

    Of course! Requests in advance are welcome. I can work with you to come up with a set list including all your favourites, or you can leave it to me.

  • How many breaks do you take? How long are they?

    Ideally a break of 15-20 minutes per 90 minutes of playing. However, this is flexible depending on your requirements.
