Brian was absolutely wonderful at our wedding. He perfectly learned the songs we asked him to and was such a joyful presence. We received so many compliments from guests on his beautiful music as well as his professionalism!

Brian was terrific! He immediately sensed the mood of our group and played accordingly. His music was perfect. He was so cooperative and responsive. I would hire him again in a minute. In fact, the GM of our country club asked for his contact information in the event they have an occasion to use him. Many attendees of our function remarked to me how perfect the music was and what a nice job Brian did. Brian is a perfect person for anyone's event.

In addition to being a really nice man, Brian is a phenomenal keyboardist and vocalist. He played for nearly three hours at our birthday party. The guests loved him. The birthday girl loved him. He was absolutely perfect for the party. Great mix of mellow rock/pop and the great American song book. I will definitely be hiring him again. Thanks, Brian!

Brian Hart did such a beautiful job playing for the ceremony at our wedding. He was responsive to my initial inquiry, subsequent messages, and made it all work on less than a weeks notice. I was so pleased when I heard him start playing. I would definitely recommend. Thank you, Brian!

FAQs

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

    We will chat by phone (or FaceTime / Skype) and discuss what your needs are for your particular event. I will soon have a studio that we can meet face-to-face in, and go over music selections if desired. I'm happy to learn new material (favorite songs, classical pieces, etc.), given enough time to master them before the event. If it's a wedding, I'll be sure we've covered the bases: Processional, Recessional, etc. I pride myself on being reliable and easy to work with.

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

    I have a Bachelors degree in Classical Piano Performance and studied privately with a pupil of the renowned concert pianist, Claudio Arrau. I have also taken private jazz lessons and studied voice with several teachers. I'm one of the lucky ones who can both read music well and play by ear.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I grew up in a small town and started to accompany school choirs as early as third grade. I went on to join rock and jazz bands, and to accompany singers and dance classes. If I remember correctly, I played my first wedding in eighth grade. There weren't a whole lot of piano players in my small town, so my experience and exposure were well-rounded from an early age.
