    Life Saver and amazing

    Ian was always quick to reply and I was able to book him semi last minute for a wedding cocktail hour. Everyone loved the music! He was the only pianist to send me links of his music as well. Also reasonably priced for 3hrs!

    We hired Ian to play at our wedding ceremony and during our cocktail hour and I'm so glad we did!! He did a fantastic job and was such a pleasure to work with! When trying to pick songs to use for the ceremony he was very forthcoming with some great selections. He also brought all his own equipment, did his own set-up and tear down, and even moved his equipment the day of, as the ceremony and cocktail hour were in two different locations. He was extremely supportive of our music choices (my husband and I have very different taste in music), and we received numerous compliments throughout the day. I would highly recommend Ian to anyone looking for a wonderful, talented and extremely accommodating and easy to work with pianist!!

    Music By Ian Green's reply:

    Hi Emma,

    Best wishes for much success!

    Sincerely,
