Introduction: Having played over 500 shows I know how to make sure you have the songs and musical moments best suited to your event. I enjoy bringing music full of passion and joy. Together we share a love of the music while choosing the best songs for the occasion. My 5 star service comes at a price you can afford. I provide sound re-inforcement and amplification as part of my standard service. I perform alone or with a small group of popular, classical and jazz musicians. I feel wonderful bringing great accompaniment to a special day. Often I get a front row seat at the special and personal moments of ceremonies and celebrations. I am grateful that I can provide support for these beautiful moments as part of serving up great music.

Really appreciate how Aaron was able to sing a beautiful, romantic song for my wife and her friends at a dinner party for her birthday. It was their first time out together in over a year due to Covid, and this sprinkled some magic back into their lives. My wife was elated and charmed, which was my only goal. Thank you Aaron - well done

Aaron played for my mother’s funeral. He was very personable and worked with me to find the perfect songs for the occasion and how they would fit in the program. He plays and sings from his heart and that shone right through. He is also very professional and punctual.

Aaron played a surprise b-day party for us and he was a huge hit! He sounds great and is super friendly to the guests. His Beatles covers are spot on and he’s a great guitarist. Will hire again for sure!

Thank you Matt and Mal for finding me and for the nice review. I am glad the music was a good fit. Playing for the double birthday party socially distanced outside in the park was really lovely. Thanks for bringing me in to add music to your celebrations

FAQs

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

    Music Entertainment I work within the budget of my clients to make sure they get a great value for their event and also a great show. Often I work to find the best fit and this can mean being flexible with pricing. If for instance there is an extra expense for new music to be learned we can find a way to use our resources wisely and secure the music the client needs with a mix of songs that are already on my play list and ones that need to be learned to make the performance fit the event. Teaching Guitar I have a discount offer for lessons where a package of 5 lessons pre paid will get a 2.5% discount. Likewise a 10 pack pre paid will get a 5% discount.

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

    After we have gone over the details to make sure the customer is getting the best music for their event I will send a simple contract confirming the salient details. The customer can then read it over and return it with a confirming email or text. At this point I usually request a 20% deposit payable by Venmo, PayPal, check or other electronic payment system.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am constantly learning new songs from great songwriters. I enjoy learning and arranging a new song for the customer or marriage couple when requested. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Classical Guitar Performance. I studied in Brazil for 2 years and have played hundreds of shows singing and playing flamenco guitar, rock guitar and Classical guitar. I have 5 instructional DVDs out on the Homespun Tapes label.
