Enjoyable day to day – I had an engagement playing piano at a conference at the ICC (International Convention Centre) on behalf of those nice people at the LSC (Learning and Skills Council).

This was my first corporate style booking as a solo pianist (I’ve done quite a number as a member of Gidea Park) and I must say that I enjoyed it. In fact its probably the most time Ive spent sat playing the piano for a few weeks. I played all the tracks from my album, one or two others which I am thinking of turning into songs but which stand up pretty well as solo piano works, a couple of bits of other people’s music (Satie) and bravely, but with reasonable success, improvised a little as well – all in all playing more or less non-stop for an hour and a quarter.

Now I have a digital piano of my own I can play just about anywhere that has a plug socket available, and so I hope to be picking up more of this kind of work in the future. Another string to my bow as it were, and as other self-employed people will know, its a good idea to have a few different income streams as none can ever be completely relied upon.

If you’re looking for some mellow, melodic, contemporary piano music for your function, then do let me know!
Xx
