Dear Bride and Groom,
Classical Guitar is a great way to add class and prestige to any ceremony. And its less expensive than hiring a string quartet.
I provide classical and acoustic guitar for weddings and receptions, with two decades of experience playing for formal ceremonies. Feel free to contact my references. I have performed in Carnegie Hall, and have earned a Master’s Degree in Classical Guitar Performance. I am happy to play special requests, as well as all the standards. Working with other musicians is no problem, and I can read music.
I own a battery-powered amp, and can perform outdoors for your mountain ceremony. I can also perform on the renaissance lute.
If you are looking to add atmosphere and set the mood, I can play laid-back renaissance melodies, or exciting repertoire. I can play classical music from any country or century – weather it be Brasillian, Italian, French, etc. If you’d like artistic modern acoustic guitar with loops, I can do that too. If you’d like classic rock songs played as instrumental finger-style, I can do it. (I do not sing.)
A deposit is required in advance, to reserve your date. The typical fee for playing 30 minutes before the ceremony, the wedding itself, and 30 minutes after, is $300.
