Brooksley is a phenomenal violinist! I don’t think I can use any words that would do any justice to describe the amazing talent that she is. She went above and beyond to make our wedding day perfect. Aside from her exquisite musical abilities, her personality was the icing on the cake. I strongly recommend booking her for any event!

Brooksley did absolutely amazing at our wedding! We honestly couldn't be any happier! It was last minute since our cellist canceled a week before the wedding. We were scrambling to find a stringed instrument. When we reached out to Brooksley, she responded quickly and was so easy to work with. She was very attentive to all of our needs and requests. She partnered with our pianist and learned the music in 1 week. I didn't have to do much of anything besides provide the song list, location and time. It was such a stress free process. Finally, when we met her she was beyond sweet, professional, and such a kind person. I would 11/10 hire her again or recommend her to anyone in search of a violinist. Thank you again Brooksley!

(I wanted to put punctuality as well as communication but Thumbtack only let me select 3, not 5.) SHE WAS AMAZING! Completely set my proposal over the top! An absolute pleasure to have at the engagement- she arrived early (even with nightmarish Laguna Beach parking), helped set up even, and played the custom song list (even with my crazy requests) SO beautifully!! Okay, so from the start: Her communication was swift, clear, and informative. She left zero guesses for the actual day, I knew exactly what to expect and that was amazing! She took my song requests, got the sheet music for them, and even found background tracks for them to really make the day special. She even helped me plan special song moments for my girlfriend (now fiancé.) Also, my parents accidentally ended up talking to her husband who helps her setup/takedown and they said he was SUPER nice just like she was! If I had to redo this event 1000x times, I would hire her again every single time. Even though I thought a live musician was going to be the hardest part, this was by far the easiest (and most rewarding) piece of the puzzle.

I got into contact with Brooksley to play for my mothers birthday. She loves violin music but she had broken her shoulder on Christmas and was too embarrassed to go see a performance live. Brooksley was accommodating and sweet enough to drive to our home and preform for my mother, father, and I in our home. I told her one artist my mother likes, Frank Sinatra, and she was able to send me an extensive list of all the songs that fit that genre which made my life so much easier. She’s super responsive and so sweet alongside her absolutely killer talent. She was even able to learn to play some songs my mother likes that absolutely no one has heard of in such a little amount of time. Her performance brought my parents to tears and she was just an absolute gift to be around. I couldn’t recommend her more, her work is absolutely unreal.

I could only pick 3 out of the 5 choices on what I liked about working with Brooksley. She was so very sweet, friendly, and also helpful with an issue we had at the funeral home. I left the music selection to Brooksley to make, and it was splendid. Brooksley played so beautifully and with such emotion, it was perfect. Thank you Brooksley for helping to make my mom's services beautiful and memorable. Blessings to you.

My Bose speaker and violin mic to amplify my violin are always included in my quote!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    In my initial response with my quote, I always include the style of songs I play, my audio/video samples, and my complete song lists so the client has all my information up front!
