We had Alisa play the piano during cocktail hour at our wedding. And she’s simply amazing. Not only is she talented, she’s also Reliable and trustworthy. She arranged with the tech guy in advance and came early to make sure everything was OK. Some of the guests showed up earlierAnd without hesitation she jumped on the piano ahead of time to make sure there was music for the guests coming in earlier. If you’re looking for a pianist, Do not hesitate and hire Alisa. She’s elegant , kind and incredibly talented. I asked if she could play “charles aznavour “ and immediately she did her research and learned to play his music. It’s hard to find reliable and good wedding vendors…glad I met Alisa as she’s not the norm. I would 1000% recommend her to others !
Alisa was excellent and amazing in every way. First, she was very professional in all our dealings with her. Second, she was on time, and even though our own event started later than scheduled, she was extremely kind and stayed until all was done. Finally, we had asked her to play a long list of songs not on her playlist and she played them wonderfully. Many of our guests at the event inquired with me directly to know her name because they were very impressed with her. Alisa was fantastic and very kind and sweet, if I can give her more than five stars, I would.

We cannot thank Alisa enough for performing at our wedding ceremony. She plays beautifully! She made the entire process very easy. From our first meeting, throughout the planning stages and right up to our wedding day. Alisa asked us for our song selections and she performed every song we wanted at the right time. During planning, she was always available to provide other options when we needed more ideas. She was also able to coordinate with our A/V company which took one more thing off our plate. Not only that, she was dressed beautifully on the day of the ceremony! Alisa is extremely talented and we would definitely recommend her services to anyone wishing to have a memorable and romantic wedding day with live music. We couldn’t imagine our ceremony without her.
Just an absolutely delightful person to work with. Thank for making our special day so grand. I would instantly reccomend Alisa to anyone who ever needs a pianist for any occasion! We were just so happy from our first email to the end of her amazing performance. Everyone loved it! Just so grateful to have found her.
