    • Festivals

      When accompanying a music festival, fees are dependant on a number of factors including; the complexity of the works being performed, the duration of the festival class, rehearsal-time, travel costs etc. It is therefore not possible for me to give a quote without the specific details of the engagement. For music teachers needing multiple accompaniments I am able to offer a significantly lower fee. Please contact me for further details and an accurate quote.

      See the FAQ's for further information.

    • Diplomas

      For diploma exams I have to tailor a quote to your specific needs as diploma programmes can vary significantly in the complexity of the piano accompaniments and the time needed for rehearsal. Please contact me and we can discuss your diploma programme.

      See the FAQ's for further information.

    • Professional

      I am always delighted to work as an ensemble with other professional musicians. I naturally do not engage as an ensemble musician on a flat fee basis as it is entirely dependant on the repertoire, the nature of the work to be undertaken and whether we are looking to build a long term partnership. Contact me and we can discuss the opportunities.

      See the FAQ's for further information.

  • Performance Fees
    Weddings, Functions, Concertos and Recitals

    Rates for performances vary depending on the duration of the performance required, the complexity of the music and the nature of performance.

    I try to keep fees competiative whilst reflecting the level of expertise that I bring to each performance. Please contact me and I can give you a tailored quote.

    Fees may also be due to the Performing Rights Society if the music is still under copyright and the venue does not have its own agreement in place. If any part of the performance is to be recorded for any reason then you must inform me prior to the performance as again this can have copyright implications and additional fees will be due to the PRS. Music is still under copyright until 70 years after the composer's death.
