Biography - About us

Michael's demand as a wedding pianist takes him to many world-renowned venues in his home city of London. His unique and refined performances have been enjoyed at many prestige venues and occasions including the Savoy Hotel, the FA Cup Final, Dubai's famous 'Palm Island’ and many more. Michael is highly accomplished in many music styles ranging from light classical piano to well-loved jazz standards and modern chart hits. He is also happy to learn requests in almost any genre.

Michael was shortlisted in the UK Wedding Awards 2020 in the 'Best Wedding Musical Act' category in recognition of all his previous great wedding performances.

As with all our world class pianists, their performances can be further enhanced by hiring our optional Baby Grand Piano 'Shells'. These create the illusion that you've hired a beautiful baby grand piano for your special day - they look incredible.
See Baby Grand Piano Shell Hire for details.

Testimonials and reviews

"Michael was incredible! From the original booking to his performance on the day, everything was perfection. Michael was punctual with his responses and has a wealth of advice for anyone unsure with making final musical decisions. Michael produced a couple of demos from song ideas I had for the wedding ceremony without any hassel at all.  He is the perfect gentleman and was able to read the room for piano pieces. We gave him a very loose brief and would advise to let him work his magic. All of my guests have commented on how amazing the pianist was and my brother will be reaching out to book Michael for his wedding."
Paul, Wedding, Swinton Estate, Yorkshire

"Michael was phenomenal at our wedding! We picked an unusual song for my entrance to the ceremony so it was important that the pianist we booked could pull off a beautiful arrangement of the piece. Michael absolutely blew us away with his rendition. I held back entering the room just to listen some more and just take it all in. What a great person to have around as well as a fantastic musician. Thank you Michael!"
Tiel, Wedding, Grittleton House, Wiltshire

"Michael was an absolute professional from the first communication to the last - he was so helpful with his suggestions and played our pieces beautifully. All of our guests commented on how lovely the music was and I believe he even entertained my hard to please Grandpa. I would have no hesitation in recommending Michael - thank you so much!"
Rebecca, Wedding, Lion House Hotel, Essex

"Michael is a true gentleman, he is amazing at his craft and created an amazing atmosphere for our wedding breakfast, we asked for some additional medleys and he was more than happy to accommodate. Highly and we mean HIGHLY recommended."
Shane, Wedding, Sudbury, Suffolk

"We had a wonderful evening and really enjoyed Michael's piano playing. He was particularly flexible on timings and played longer than we had previously agreed so as to fit in with the pace on the night. He also played every piece we had asked for (and we were quite specific!)"
Richard, Anniversary Dinner, Kent
