FAQ: Selecting Music for Events
What type of music do you play?
I play a variety of different genres & styles, including classical, pop, jazz, rock, country, folk, world, and sacred music. I love creating my own arrangements of songs that are not usually heard on the harp. In addition, I also write and perform original compositions.
Where can I find a list of songs you play?
You can view my Repertoire List, which lists many of the most often requested "classics" and "standards" that I am asked to play at events. If you are specifically looking for an arrangement of a top 40 hit or other current pop song, please ask me if it can be arranged for the harp. Just to give you an idea, I have recently arranged songs by such diverse artists as: Taylor Swift, Alison Krauss, Lady Gaga, Coldplay, Train, and Metallica.
Can I hear a sample of your music?
Absolutely. You can listen to excerpts of me playing on my Audio Samples page. We can also arrange to meet if you'd like to hear me play in person before booking. If you are an event planner, please email me to request my press kit and sampler CD.
Do you take special requests?
Yes. Special requests - any songs that I do not already know - must be made no less than one month before the date of the wedding.
I have a very large collection of sheet music that is not listed on my repertoire list, so I may even have already arranged your song for another event! Please keep in mind that occasionally I receive requests for music that is unplayable on the harp. Should this occur, I reserve the right to arrange the music in order to better suit the instrument or to substitute a different piece after notifying the client.
The first two specially requested songs are included with the price of my event packages. For more than two songs, I charge a $30 arranging fee per song to cover the extra time I spend and preparing the music.
