Enhanced DBS clearance
I am a member of National Association of Brass Band Adjudicators and I have over 150 adjudications under my belt including all the major brass band championships. I have been a freelance conductor since 1988.
I am an experienced piano player available to play at weddings, funerals, christenings, corporate events, private functions, cocktail parties, ladies’ evenings and more. Contact me for more information!
I am an independent certified civil celebrant. I love creating personalised, unique and meaningful ceremonies with a touch of class! I'm based in Shropshire and I conduct weddings, celebration of life/funerals (including masonic and military funerals), commitment, civil partnership, renewal of vows, adoption welcoming, naming, pet funerals, internment or scatter of ashes (human and animals), memorials service, and even divorce ceremonies in Shropshire, West Midlands, Mid and North Wales, Derbyshire, Staffordshire, although I travel anywhere in the UK and sometimes even abroad.
As there is often some religious element in a funeral service, including hymn singing. Contact me if you need an organist to accompany the hymns and to play music before and after the service.
I am honoured to be the organist for several Craft & Mark Lodges, Chapters, & various other Orders in Shropshire, and as such I have a wealth of experience in providing the music for Masonic meetings, Festive Board and for other events ranging from social activities through to funerals.
I am always happy to receive enquiries from Lodges and Chapters in Shropshire and West Midlands who need an organist or pianist for their meetings.
If your Lodge or Chapter room has no organ or piano, or you require music for a festive board where no instrument is available I am able to provide my own portable keyboard.
Other Orders by arrangement....
