I have been a professional musician for over 25 years. I play both violin and viola, with violin being my primary instrument. In addition to orchestra and string quartet performing, I also play solo violin at weddings and other gatherings in the Atlanta area. My rates are reasonable and the quality of the performance you will receive is excellent. Special music requests are almost always granted as long as there is enough notice given, and the sheet music is available. With enough time, I can also learn and arrange pretty much anything by ear.
For any event, there is a significant up-charge for Stairway to Heaven, That Song from Titanic, and Freebird. Just kidding. I enjoy playing new music and always have fun arranging and performing songs that a client has specifically requested. I am always adding to my song list, and I also have a YouTube playlist that I send to clients for a sample of the types of music I can play.
I perform regularly with the Celebration String Quartet as well as smaller ensembles and as a soloist. Recently, I have begun performing at senior centers. Rather than a straight-up concert, these performances are more of a lecture/recital with stories and anecdotes relating to my life as a musician and about the music that I play.
Chuck gave a breathtaking wedding a classical and elegant touch that brought the guests to tears. He was so professional and he played all the music requested. We thank you for a wonderful evening. – Joelia C.
With the advent of the internet and mobile technology, booking and payment are even more convenient than ever. Email and text communications are a great way to stay in touch. PayPal is a good payment option and a way for professional musicians to accept credit card payments. Youtube is a nice avenue to get demo music to clients, and with a cell phone and a few select apps, anyone can make a good quality recording to send to prospective clients.
I am a consummate professional, always arriving early, dressed appropriately, and I always stay out of the way so you can enjoy your event with little interruption or hassle.
