David Perkins

Pianist - Arranger - Composer


David Perkins has worked at Pizza on the Park, The Pheasantry and other venues in London and theatres across the southeast of England and since 1994 has worked as Musical Director on over 50 productions for Guildford's Yvonne Arnaud Youth Theatre. David regularly accompanies for exams including ABRSM, LCM and Trinity at all levels from Grade 1 to Diploma and regularly plays for rehearsals and auditions for both professional and amateur companies alike. As a soloist, David performs regularly at the Royal National Theatre with his tribute to Scott Joplin and through his love of Ragtime has formed an 11-piece Ragtime Band, Elite Syncopations, with the aim of bringing this wonderfully evocative music to a wider public.


Weddings, functions and other special occasions

Solo piano music for civil or church weddings is popular before, during and after the ceremony or as background music during the reception. Personally chosen piano music will greatly enhance the atmosphere of your special occasion helping to make it a day to remember. Liven up your party or function with light classical or jazzy piano music helping it to go with a swing. If there is no piano available, a digital piano can be provided.

Contact David Perkins directly for more information or to check availability.
