Rehearsal & Audition Pianist
Have a show for which you're holding auditions?  Need a rehearsal pianist for your cast? Contact me and we'll discuss your project!
I'm also available for weddings, holiday and corporate events, and family celebrations!

Artistic Direction
Sometimes you don't need a musician, but could really use a director for your show. I can work with your vision for the show in keeping with your theme and partner with you to make opening night a success!
