We were thrilled with the performance by Brooksley at our sip and paint event. Despite being hired last-minute, she showed up promptly and was incredibly accommodating. She worked with us to select the perfect music beforehand and seamlessly integrated into our slightly challenging timeline. Her music selection was fantastic and added a beautiful ambiance to the evening. We couldn’t have been happier with her performance and highly recommend her for any event!”

Brooksley played for an engagement I was secretly planning for my (now) fiancée! She was very responsive, flexible, and easy to work with. We had to last-minute change the location because of rain, and she was very accommodating with it all. Would recommend 10/10 any time you need a violinist for something special!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My pricing depends on your event/wedding location, date/month, and day of the week! The following is my pricing list: 1 hour - $260 to $620 2 hours - $530 to $830 3 hours - $740 to $1,040 4 hours - $960 to $1,260 5 hours - $1,170 to $1,470 My Bose speaker and violin mic to amplify my violin are included in all my pricing!

  • 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! Also, I request a deposit to secure the date, and the client can pay the deposit via Venmo or Zelle! I am happy to provide a contract as well!

  • What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

    I have played in many restaurants and Churches over the years, so I am very familiar with their requirements and restrictions! CHURCHES: Due to COVID, most Churches today do not allow outside violinists to play for weddings, so please contact your Church first for approval! For Catholic weddings, most Churches require sacred classical music (i.e. Jesu, Joy Of Man's Desiring, Ave Maria, Hymns). Thus, if your Church approves an outside violinist and you would like music other than sacred classical, please contact your Church music director or Priest first for approval! RESTAURANTS: Most restaurants do not allow outside violinists to serenade a table in the dining room (i.e. for proposals, anniversaries, Valentine's Day, etc.) due to the other diners, due to the set music playlist playing through the speakers, and/or due to their own live entertainment. Thus, please contact the General Manager first for approval! If you have booked a fully private room in the restaurant, please still contact the General Manager first for approval! There is usually more flexibility with the fully private rooms, but I have encountered a few restaurants that still do not allow it!
