Do you always perform with backtracks?
Not always - I also perform solo, or with Sono Duo© (violin-piano duet). I work together with you to determine the best performance option for your event!
How far in advance can I book?
I take bookings up to one year in advance.
How much notice do you need to put together a custom program?
There is quite a bit that goes into putting together a custom program, depending on the length of the performance. To allow enough time to communicate back and forth with you, to select the genres and song selections, and to custom arrange the melody lines and to acquire or create any backing tracks, I prefer to work with two months' notice or more. Please discuss any extenuating circumstances with me personally.
How much space do you need to perform?
I require a space of at least 5 ft by 5 ft for a solo performance (near an outlet if amplification is needed or accompaniment tracks are being used) to accommodate my equipment and to allow enough room to bow safely. More musicians require
more space. Please discuss any specialized concerns directly with me.
Can you perform outside?
I can perform outside provided the space is flat and covered from elements. I cannot perform in rain, during heavy winds, or in temperatures below 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Please discuss details with me in person and I will do my best to accommodate.
Do you charge for travel?
The first 30 miles of travel is included, after which I charge the 2019 IRS standard mileage rate of 58¢ per mile.
I'm interested in a quote, but I'm not ready to commit yet. How do I get an accurate quote?
Due to the highly customized nature of the performances I offer, there are details that affect pricing that I need to know to provide the most accurate quote. Please reach out to me for a no-obligation consultation, and I will be happy to prepare a custom quote for your unique situation.
