I am a classically trained pianist who visits Care Homes and Retirement Homes to perform to residents for 45-60 minutes.
I am passionate about bringing the life-enhancing benefits of music to others and believe that well-chosen music is a means of awakening hidden memories, aiding relaxation and creating a fun, social time together.
I provide a varied programme of music which always includes hymns, classical music, nostalgic songs, and songs from the shows.
If your home does not have a piano, I have a portable electric piano that I can bring at no extra cost. I usually charge about £50 per visit depending on the distance travelled.
