What I like most about my life as a musician is the variety it involves.
In my performing life I play weddings, house parties, dinners, concert venues, malls and many other settings. One day I am playing violin for a wedding ceremony or cocktail hour and the next evening I am playing a violin, vocal & guitar gig at a folk club. I get to play and sing classical, folk, original music, pop, musical theatre, jazz – pretty much everything.
It’s exciting to sit down with a couple and help them to discover what specific music will put the finishing touches to their wedding day. I like to create a unique feel to compliment the couple or event for any gig that I am hired to perform.
I also teach students ranging in age from 5 – 65 in both private and group settings. My goal is to provide each student with the learning environment they need to learn to play the violin and grow as a musician and an individual.
Rhonda’s music throughout our wedding ceremony provided a special touch. She showed a great deal of professionalism both beforehand, when she gave us a personal concert in order to make our music choices, and on the day, where her performance was absolutely wonderful and things went without a hitch. All the guests were talking about how beautiful the music was. Thank you again Rhonda for your help in making our wedding a day to remember! — Mark & Melissa Sheehan, married August 14, 2010, Edmonton, AB
