Great communication throughout & responding to emails in a timely manor.
She arranged an introduction call at the beginning to go through all my questions.
She practiced new songs for us which weren't on her playlist & agreed to play a song walking down the aisle.
Her playing skills really impressive and all the songs were very well represented.

Tamilla was amazing! She answered my emails quickly and was lovely.
Her performance was spot on and all our guests said they really loved her music as she was playing modern songs that they knew! We would highly recommend

We had an excellent experience with Tamilla at our wedding! She was responsive, reliable and all around excellent! Tamilla made our cocktail hour much more lively with her music and many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed listening to her play. She had a wide variety of song choices as well. I would definitely recommend booking her for your next event!

I heard Tamilla play on YouTube and knew that I wanted her to play at our wedding.
From start to finish Tamilla was great; she is always there to answer any questions and made the whole process very easy.
The stand out for me was Tamilla agreeing to learn a number of new songs, just for our day, which goes above and beyond the call of duty.
Tamilla is the epitome of professional, a very sweet lady and was absolutely incredible on the day. Many guests asked where I found her and said she was the best they had heard - I think they also appreciated Tamilla's modern take on violin playing.
I wouldn't hesitate to ask Tamilla to play at another event. She was just fantastic.
Highly recommended :)

Thank you to Tamilla, The Violin & Expert.
Tamilla played beautifully for the entirety of our sit down meal,
what a talent. If Tamilla can't do it on a violin it can't be done!
She was only booked to play for an hour but we requested her to
stay and she did so with no complaints, I hope your wrist is ok .
You are so very appreciated and made our dinner feel super classy,
thank you from us both.
Jon and Chelsea
