    Highly recommend!

    Sharon was so easy to work with. She was very timely in her responses and gave us all the information we needed to make song decisions. She met with me a few weeks before the wedding to see the reception space, piano, and go over day-of-wedding details. She is extremely talented. Our guests raved about her. We couldn't recommend her more for your next event!

    Very professional, great to work with

    Sharon was very professional, flexible, and really added an extra special touch to our wedding day. I can't tell you how many of our guests commented on the piano music for our ceremony. Everyone loved it! Prior to the wedding, we were able to meet and review different pieces we wanted played. It was really helpful to review the plan and what type of music we wanted. She was also really helpful at reminding us when we had to make decisions and also guided us in the right direction when we weren't sure what to do. We would definitely recommend her!
