Thank YOU so much, Kristen! So glad you enjoyed my arrangements of your requests. Congratulations again and thank you for hiring me to be part of your big day!!!
Summer was very sweet and prompt. She played for an hour at an intimate surprise engagement party I threw for my best friend at my house. She is very talented and a great addition to a party!Feb 12, 2017Verified
Summer performed for a small group of us and we were all very impressed and very happy with how it all went. I had asked her to blend in some 90's bands into her repertoire (my wife's favorite music!) and the choices were fantastic. She arrived early, played far longer than we had originally allowed time for (which was great) and was a very pleasant and easy person to get along with and communicate with. I'd hire her again in a heart beat.Jan 30, 2017Verified
Summer played at my wedding ceremony in the Mural Room at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse. I can't say enough good things about her. Everyone, including my coordinator, gushed about how amazingly talented she was. Summer was professional, and accommodating to all of my questions and requests. She had no issues with my song requests and played them beautifully. She has lots of music available to listen to on Apple Music, YouTube, and her website. Thank you so much Summer!Nov 8, 2016Verified
Summer is a professional. My wedding went 100% as planned with her help. She was very attentive to our needs, responsive at all times and understands the importance of being on point! I consider myself a perfectionist, Summer went above and beyond expectations. From the first e-mail we exchanged I knew she was the right person for the job. Kudos to you Amber!Oct 13, 2016Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I offer a discounted package deal for people who may want to hire me for both wedding ceremony and wedding cocktail hour. I am competitively priced for the quality of musician I have proven to be. Some potential clients have kept in contact with me after choosing another cheaper musician vendor, and have written me after the performance that they understand why I charge more than the average pianist—just like any other service, you get what you pay for, and premium services come at premium prices. I would be more than happy to demonstrate how my professional services are worth more what I charge.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Once I have all the details regarding the performance venue, date, and contact person, I require a non-refundable deposit (acts as a non-refundable downpayment) to secure your spot in my performance schedule. Once received, I will create a booking contract for both parties to sign. Please note any song requests you have ahead of time or else I will play from my memorized repertoire of over 2,000 songs (spanning a variety of genres, from classical to hip hop to pop to rock to EDM etc.) that I believe would best fit the event and audience.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been playing piano for 22 years now and was classically-trained for 10 of those years. I was the youngest person to gain a Yamaha Music Teaching Certificate (to pass their level 5 piano performance and theory exam). I also received a 5 on AP Music Theory, passed the Certificate of Merit Advanced Level Piano exam, and received a Music Minor from UC Berkeley in 2010. As a professional, I have toured with and/or done studio recording work for the likes of Circa Survive, KSHMR, Until the Ribbon Breaks, Anthony Green, Alexandra Shipp, and more. My piano playing, composition, and arranging skills, have been praised by the likes of Richard Clayderman, Skrillex, Classical Crossover Live host Jonathan Estabrooks, MainlyPiano.com, DJ Paul KOM, and more.
