Steven was amazing. We all enjoyed his talent and will definitely consider recommending him to friends and hiring him again.Apr 26, 2016VerifiedPianist to the Stars - Steven Solomon's reply
Thanks Gena. What a fun event. It was a pleasure entertaining and meeting your family and friends. I'll look forward to seeing every again at your next big event :)
I hired Steven to play piano at my birthday party, for a fun sing-along event. At first I was nervous that no one would sing, but Steven knows so many songs and he quickly got people off their feet singing and dancing! My friends have all told me what a memorable and unique idea this was to have Steven play live piano music and I couldn't agree more. Steven was very kind and professional from the start, clearly laying out the terms in advance, he responded quickly to emails, and the follow through was a breeze. He could play all the songs my guests requested, transpose key, read sheet music, sing, and play from memory. He's very talented! We all had a blast!Jul 9, 2016VerifiedPianist to the Stars - Steven Solomon's reply
Thanks Rudy, for the very nice words. Great party. So nice seeing everyone enjoying the music and singing along. Super fun. Thanks for having me at the piano to celebrate with you and your friends. Looking forward to the next party :)

Steven helped us at our corporate event, I pushed him to make me look really good by hiring him...lol Steven was awesome, from the very beginning to the very end, very pleasant, patient, prompt, responsive, communicative, happy, accommodating, professional and all.... needless to say very talented. I had seen/listened to his work prior to hiring him so I was not worried about his work(I wish we could have a grand piano for his talent, unfortunately due to the venue we had to compromise with a keyboard), and he did not disappoint me/us. In addition to his professionalism his fee was very fair, I have no hesitations in recommending him to anybody, I would hire him for my wedding if I ever have a chance... :)Apr 24, 2017VerifiedPianist to the Stars - Steven Solomon's reply
First to clarify to those reading this review, this was not a wedding, it was a corporate event :) Thanks Mio for the very kind review. It was lots of fun entertaining your colleagues. And it was great when everyone started singing along to 'We Are the Champions' :) Congratulations to everyone on a record breaking business year for the company. It was a privilege to be of service to you and your company and to work with you in helping you to put together a very successful event.
Steven was a pleasure to communicate with- we discussed all details and I am looking forward to him coming to our school to rock the piano for our teacher appreciation day!Apr 9, 2018VerifiedPianist to the Stars - Steven Solomon's reply
Thanks, Noni for the nice comments on my pre-event communications :) I always make sure I know everything about the event and the services my clients are requesting from me and that my clients know everything about the services I'm providing to them. This ensures that everyone at the event is going to have an extraordinary, memorable and fun experience with me and my music! I'm very much looking forward to 'rocking' the teachers at the piano at the wonderful event you have planned for them!
From the first conversation until he left our home on the night of the engagement it was pure joy having Steven and Kim Soo! He is not only accomplished...he is accommodating and flexible to adapt to requests or changing moods of the evening. He is professional but also very charming and a delight with guests. Our highest recommendation!!Apr 23, 2018VerifiedPianist to the Stars - Steven Solomon's reply
Thanks for the kind words, Judith. It was fun taking all the requests and leading sing-alongs. Will be looking forward to being of service to you and your guests again at your next fun and classy party!
