5/5 would DEFINITELY recommend!
Michael was a pleasure to work with. He was so flexible, especially when our plans for what music was being played changed last minute. I hadn’t heard him play until the rehearsal but immediately upon hearing him practice I was put at ease. He was the perfect choice, such a gentleman, and such a great person to work with! I will recommend him any time someone needs a wedding pianist for sure!! Honestly for anyone who needs a pianist in general, I’m sure he could play anything with ease. Two huge thumbs up and 5 stars!! Thank you, Michael!!Sent on 06/22/2019
