Good evening Robert, thank you so much for playing at Ben and Bethany's reception on Saturday. I am so sorry I didn't get the chance to speak to you. We had a wonderful day and your musical talent really enhanced the atmosphere. It was much appreciated.

Hi Robert, I just wanted to say  a HUGE thank you for Sunday. I absolutely loved listening to you play throughout the day and I know everyone else did too - the walk-in with my dad was done to our song and to absolute perfection in my eyes. It's a moment my dad and I will remember forever and that is all thanks to you. I hope you enjoyed it...I hear you have offered to babysit for my nieces and nephews...you will regret that soon I am sure!
Thanks ever so much.

Dear Robert, thank you so much for the excellent music on Friday, you did a fantastic job. Everyone I've spoken to really enjoyed the atmosphere and it was a lovely mix of favourite pieces sprinkled with a little Christmas magic, all adding to our enjoyment of the evening. It was lovely to meet Pat, too! My only negative comment is that the evening went to quickly! Thank you again.
Best Regards,

Samworth Brothers Christmas Dinner (24-11-2017)

Hi Robert, I just wanted to say a BIG 'thank you' to you and Pat yesterday. We adored your performance, it added such a lovely feeling to the afternoon - definitely one of the highlights of the day and something we will always remember with a smile :) So nice to meet you both, I think you are a pair of gems! And thank you again for the weather!!

Dear Robert, thank you for coming to play for us at Leicester last Saturday. It was 'just what the doctor ordered' in terms of having lovely background music as our guests arrived up the sweeping staircase, followed by more delightful tunes as we ate our meal. To have accompaniment for the Loyal Toasts was also much appreciated. Finally, everyone seemed to enjoy the 'cabaret' especially during the 'Horn Concerto'! We will certainly bear you in mind if we are looking for a pianist/accompanist at our dinners in future years.
Best Wishes,

Dear Robert and Pat, I just want to say thank you to you both for the most magical musical accompaniment for our wedding. From playing 'Let it go!' with our little girls hanging on every note, to playing with Sharon for the beautiful medley in the Ceremony (and of course, every second in between!) I was able hear and pick out each and every song!! I would happily recommend your talents to anyone looking for a professional and beautiful couple.
Love from,

Roopa & Anish

Hi Robert, Anuj and I would like to thank you for yesterday. You played beautifully and our guests extremely enjoyed your music. Thanks also for the beautiful performance of 'Latch'. It was a pleasure having you on our wedding team! Many thanks to you lovely wife as well.
Best Wishes,

Good afternoon Robert and Pat, Hope you are both well. Robin and I have now returned from our honeymoon in Italy which has been a wonderful end to our amazing few weeks. We would like to thank you for the wonderful music you provided throughout the day. Everyone really enjoyed listening to you and hope it all went well for you both as well. I hope we can book you again in the future but for now I wish you all the best.
Kind Regards,

Hello Robert! Hope you are well, thank you for playing at our wedding. It was fabulous! Hope you enjoyed everyone singing along to 'Let It Go'!!  Ha-ha!
Take Care,


Robert, I just wanted to say a massive thank you for the beautiful way in which you played all of our chosen songs. I was truly blown away and hearing 'Kissing You' whilst walking down the aisle was just perfect so I appreciate you reassuring me over the phone last week! Ket and I are eternally thankful for how special you made our day.
Best Wishes,

Shefali (11-06-2016)

Robert, just wanted to thank you for coming to play at Prestwold last Monday!! You sounded absolutely amazing and I'm just so sorry  I didn't get a chance to say hello and meet you properly! The afternoon went far too quickly and we were outside having photos taken for most of the time you were there. So many friends and family members have commented on how beautifully you played and they thoroughly enjoyed the contemporary pieces
Many thanks again,

Caroline and Edward (31-03-2016)

Dear Robert, I would like to take this opportunity to say a very special 'Thank You' to you and your wife, for your generous support yesterday. All the guests, staff and volunteers said that the music “brought the event to life”, which I agree. It was wonderful to hear the notes floating through the main doors on arrival and set the scene for a very pleasant and enjoyable day. I have passed on these comments to MJ at Prestwold Hall, but then I am sure she is aware of your skill. I smiled as a staff member of mine, with eyes closed, standing at the signing in desk, was having a “moment” to himself….whilst a couple of guests who had just arrived (waiting patiently and with amusement) for the piece of music you were playing to stop - so he could open his eyes, to sign them in!
Thank you again,

British Red Cross (10-09-2015)

Dear Bob, just wanted to say a huge thank you for your wonderful playing at our reception.  A lot of people commented on how much they enjoyed it and I think it was the perfect way to receive our guests.  I am only sorry that I didn't get the chance to say this in person on the day so please accept my apologies for that.
Many thanks again and best wishes,

Kate and Mark (24-07-2015)

Hi Robert, just to say a massive thank you from Nick and I for the beautiful music on Saturday. We had the most amazing day (still can't believe the weather was so good for our photos). We are both so glad that we asked you to be part of our day, your music added something very special indeed to our ceremony and reception drinks. If you ever need a testimonial, please don't hesitate to ask!
Thank you again,


Hi Robert, thank you again for making our day on Saturday so incredible! We just loved every second and you created the perfect ambience for the ceremony and reception - we will be eternally grateful.
Best Wishes,

Hi Robert,
Thank you so much for playing at our wedding yesterday. You were amazing and all the guests told us how much they loved your music. We loved the entrance music. It was perfect. We are only sorry we didn't get time to thank you in person on the day.
Many Thanks,
Helen & Tim

Thank you very much Robert for playing at our wedding. It sounded beautiful and all the guests were complementing you. Thank you very much and hope to use you in the future.
Kind Regards,

Thank you so much for playing at our wedding, it was brilliant and we are so, so pleased that we booked you!  You really did amaze our guests, they very much enjoyed the range of songs you could play and so did we!! I would describe what you did as perfection!!
Thank You,
Maria and Paul (26-05-2013)

Hi Robert - We would like to thank you for playing during our wedding ceremony at Catthorpe Manor. Your advice and guidance proved invaluable and the songs we selected as a result were perfect. The music was the cherry on the cake and made the moment perfect. Thank you once again, and should we ever need a pianist in the future, we would not hesitate to book you.
Poonam and Anwar

Dear Robert - This is a quick email to say thank you for making our special day even more wonderful. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the room when you played 'Chasing Cars', you play beautifully.
Kind Regards,
Sapna and Mark (05-05-2012)

Hi Robert - Depesh and I would like to say thank you for playing the piano at our engagement party.  We received many compliments from our guests about how beautiful it sounded! You and your wife made our event so special and gave it that extra special touch, so thank you so much.
Kind Regards,
Precina and Depesh (09-10-2011)

Dear Robert – On behalf of our family I would like to thank you for playing at the Nottingham Belfry during the serving of canapés and drinks whilst waiting for the Wedding Breakfast to begin. Your selection of music was wonderful – everyone enjoyed listening and it was a lovely surprise for Nicola and John.
Thank you once again,

Hi Robert - I would like to say a big thank you for playing at our wedding, you really made the day special and created and amazing atmosphere.  Your recommendations on what pieces to play during the breakfast were a great help. All the guests were pleasantly surprised and full of praise when you played some Indian Songs on the piano. Thank you once again, we will never forget the moment when you played 'Everything I Do, I Do IT For You' for our recession.
Thank You,

Dear Robert –Thank you for playing for us at our 50th Wedding Anniversary party. It set the scene for an enjoyable evening. It was good to meet you both – what team work!
Best Wishes,
Lois and Norman (25-06-2011)

Hi Robert - Thank you for the photo, that was very kind of you to send it to me. Thanks again for playing the music pieces at our ceremony. The guests said the Les Miserables, Bring me Home, that had tears in their eyes listening to you play. Good luck in the future with your music and if you ever need a recommendation I would be more than happy to give you one.

Hi Robert - just thought I should let you know that the organisers of the Lord Mayor’s Ball asked everyone who attended to fill out a feedback form. They asked to rate you and all gave 8+ out of 10, including a lot of 10s. So, thank you! That’s really, really excellent!

Hi Robert - A magical evening made even better by your superb playing. It was such a great evening, and I've had plenty of comments about how my colleagues loved the piano playing!
Many Thanks,
Matt and friends from Jessops, Leicester (04-02-2011)

Hi Robert. I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you again for the fantastic service you gave us at our wedding at Prestwold Hall on the 4th December. You were totally reliable, efficient and played everything we asked for beautifully. Having you there gave our wedding a special atmosphere and we will never forget you playing 'Your Song' for us as we were announced into the Reception - we felt like movie stars!!!
Thank you so much again, 
Abigail & Matthew

Hi Robert - I know my wife Abigail has already emailed you to thank you for your wonderful piano playing at our wedding at Prestwold Hall last Saturday, but I just wanted to also personally say thank you. You were absolutely fantastic and it helped create a special atmosphere which so many people have commented on. We had such an amazing day, and as Abbie said in her email to you; we shall never, ever forget your playing 'Your Song' as we were introduced into the Reception. What made that part extra special was that I didn't even know Abbie had arranged it with you so I really wasn't expecting it. You were a true professional and we are so glad that we booked you. It’s even made me ask for a piano for Christmas!! (I'm pretty sure I won't get one though!) Thank you so much.
All the very best for the future,


Robert - I would like to thank you for the excellent service you provided during our wedding reception in the City Rooms 30th October 2010. You were so professional and helped make our day a truly magical event. Our guests thought your music choices amazing and you really created a fabulous atmosphere during the wedding breakfast. When Rachel and I walked in to 'This Year’s Love' we felt a million dollars - we will never forget that moment!
Best Wishes,

Dear Robert – Thank you for playing so beautifully at our wedding and reception. It made all the difference to be able to have one of our songs as our recessional piece, so a special thank you for learning Use Somebody by The Kings of Leon.  It sounded brilliant! Your advice about using a big song was spot on! We certainly had a fantastic day and are reminded of it whenever we hear the song now!
Thanks again,

Emma and Sam

Robert - The only way we can describe your piano playing before and after the ceremony and your band RUSO’s evening performance, is perfect. Thank you so much for your contribution which helped to make our day "perfect” We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending you to anyone.
Thank you again,
Russell and Valerie (22-05-2010)

Hi Robert – Just to say THANK YOU to both you and Sarah (Soprano) for your amazing contribution to our wedding on Sunday (28/03/2010) You were both fantastic and had much praise throughout the day. Everything was perfect.
Thanks again,
Jo and Jack x.

Dear Rob - Many thanks for playing beautifully at our wedding at the City Rooms (24/10/09). We had a fantastic day and will treasure the morning forever.
Clare and Neil

Bob - the comments are genuine and we would highly recommend you to anyone that asks!  Thanks for playing at our wedding reception. Everyone commented on how nice it was to have a pianist playing as opposed to a background CD, how wonderful the music was and how it added to and helped create the atmosphere of the day. You really helped to make the day extra special.  The choice and range of songs that you offered us was fantastic and you were able to offer and play everything that we wanted.  It was a pleasure to listen to you play and the flexibility in your playing sets helped it all run smoothly, giving a very good relaxing flow to the proceedings!
Thanks again,
Matt & Nikki Hutton

Robert - Just a brief note of thanks for the excellent service you provided on our wedding day. The guests were very enthusiastic about your background music which provided the perfect ambience both at the beginning of the wedding reception and also during/after the wedding breakfast. The music and volume was suitably tempered and not invasive at any point and we would highly recommend you to anyone wishing to create a perfect atmosphere for a very special day, whatever that occasion, or taste may be.
Best Regards,
Eileen & Brian (30-08-2008)

Bob, thank you for a wonderful evening.  Your playing of the sonata was very moving - we were entranced.  We also thought you did a great job of accompanying the soloists, adjusting brilliantly to support a couple where they might have struggled.  It was a pleasure listening to you and we are looking forward to your next appearance.
Stephanie & Peter

I would like to thank you for playing at the Barrow Twinning Association's Music in the Garden evening. You approached the event with professionalism and care. The selection of music and the informed introductions to each piece was very much appreciated by all present. Your playing captivated our guests and you brought a real touch of class to the event.
Thanks again,

Bob - thank you so much for making our wedding day so special. Your choice of music was superb. We loved the Beethoven during the signing of the register. It was such a wonderful contrast to Pachelbel’s Canon, our choice for the recessional walk. We can’t thank you enough.
Sarah & Andy

Bob - Excellent job for the Chamber of Commerce event in our function room at the Priory. Although this was a rather formal affair, your professional approach and appearance allowed you to fit in perfectly and your faultless musical performance drew a number of compliments from the gathering at the end of the event. You have such a wide range of material available that you were able to provide exactly the right type of music for the event. The Chamber of Commerce has already asked if you are available for next year.
The Priory, Loughborough

Thank you for playing so wonderfully at our Grand Twinning Dinner on the occasion of our Tenth Anniversary.  You created just the right ambience to accompany the meal and after dinner conversations. I particularly appreciated the selection of music and the way in which it fitted so well with the event.
