    I am a professional classical pianist from Toronto, who specializes in producing high quality recordings of piano accompaniments for any of the pieces that you may be preparing with your choir.

    I am able to record any genre (including Jazz), pieces at any difficulty level or tempi, transpose to any key, with the suggested dynamics and articulation.
    Here is the link to my website:

    These recordings will be made on a Bosendorfer grand at my studio. Upon receiving the recordings, you are more than welcome to use them at any festival, concert, or exam.

    Please let me know if you are interested.
