About Michael Beling

As a faculty member at Bates College and jazz pianist and organist who has played over 1,500 gigs, I have the experience necessary to provide your event with top-notch musical entertainment. I am extremely tasteful and situationally appropriate with my musical choices and volume level, and sensitive to the desires of the client. Additionally, I have memorized hundreds of jazz and Great American Songbook pieces, and devoted my life to this music. I exclusively work with musicians of a similarly high calibre.

I am comfortable within a range of styles beyond jazz including pop/rock, classical and church hymns, and am happy to learn your dream pieces for ceremony music and first dances.

I can add the following instruments if desired:

-Vocals (male or female)

-Acoustic bass

-Drums

-Sax, Trumpet, or Flute

-Guitar (electric, acoustic or classical)

    If you are looking for an amazingly talented jazz pianist who can work with any musician, then this is your man!! He is 100% professional and super NICE to work with. I could NOT BE HAPPIER with Michael's musicianship and his kindness and flexibility. I certainly hope this is only the first of many endeavors with Michael. I sent him charts for multiple vocal tunes (all standards) with my own arrangements and he was prepared and completely intuitive in working with me and three vocalists and 2 flautists. He is an extremely sensitive accompanist and solo player. Worth his weight in gold!

    Thanks, Suzanne— I enjoyed playing a mix of jazz, classical, church music and my favorite Elvis song for your ceremony, and also being joined impromptu by two flautists during the reception! It was fun, and I hope to work with you again!

    We had a morning wedding with 70+ people. Michael played music while people were being seated and then again during the reception which was held in the same space. He was super helpful beforehand, very accommodating, offered ideas, listened to what we wanted and went above and beyond. He understands what is needed at a wedding, what we wanted and he set the perfect tone, played at exactly the right volume... We can't recommend him highly enough!

    Michael is perfect to feature during a cocktail hour but he's also great during a wedding ceremony when he brings in one of his talented singers. If you're having a party, his music is a soothing backdrop. Michael has always been dependable and professional. I would highly recommend this talented musician.
