    Outstanding pianist! She brought a beautiful atmosphere to both our wedding rehearsal and cocktail hour. Her performance was impeccable, and her warm and kind demeanor added a special touch to our celebrations. She was not only exceptionally professional but also consistently on time, ensuring a seamless and enjoyable experience for everyone. I highly recommend her for anyone seeking a talented and reliable pianist for their special events.

    Wedding Ceremony/Cocktail Hour @ Casa Loma, Toronto

    Best pianist ever!

    I don't even know where to start with Jennifer. Planning a wedding can be so hectic at times & Jennifer was one of my favourite vendors to work with. She is so dedicated & motivated to make the music on your day as perfect as you imagined. Talented is just one of many words to describe Jennifer. She has a very detailed and diverse list of songs that she can play but is also willing to become well versed in songs that are not on that list. She made our ceremony and cocktail hour everything we dreamed of and more. We are so impressed & happy we hired her for our wedding!

    Jennifer was absolutely phenomenal and helped make our wedding dreams come true. I will be eternally grateful for her openness and flexibility with our unique song requests. She performed flawlessly and was able to read the ceremony incredibly well and time all the music perfectly. There's no way anyone choosing to hire her for their event will be disappointed.

    Couldn’t have asked for a better experience for our special day!
    Jennifer was amazing to work with and was extremely flexible. We had many unique song requests and Jennifer took the time to learn every single one of them and played them to perfection. Our guests could not stop talking about the music choices and how amazing she sounded. Jennifer helped make our day extra special and I cannot recommend her enough!

    Private Family Christmas Party - Aurora, Ontario

    December 2023

    Jennifer's presence, at our Family Christmas Party, was simply "the icing on the cake". Her choice of music, a mix of Christmas classics and beautiful ballads, left my entire family, from 7 months to 80 years of age, full of warmth and Christmas cheer. And Jennifer is as accomplished a professional as you could ever hope for, while being an incredibly charming individual to boot. Anyone who has the pleasure of Jennifer's talents on the piano will be better for the time and experience! My entire family gave Jennifer "10 Stars"!

    Wedding Ceremony & Cocktail Hour @Dundas Valley Golf and Curling Club

    October 2023

    When I reached out to Jennifer, we had a very specific sound and vision in mind for a Pianist/Cellist duo that we wanted to hire for our wedding, and had gone through MANY different vendors without luck. While Jennifer was posted as a solo pianist, she had great reviews and so I decided to reach out in hopes that she knew of or had played with a cellist in the past. To my surprise, she told me she knew a cellist and would reach out to see if he was interested. To our luck, Jennifer reached out to Jose Shapero, and they were both on board to play at our wedding...Together, they played with so much soul and it was a no brainer to hire them! Leading up to the wedding, this incredible duo learned several requested tracks by the Brooklyn Duo that we wanted played at our ceremony and cocktail hour... They delivered beyond our expectations, hearing them play on our wedding day was an absolute dream come true, and I truly can not thank them both enough. I would HIGHLY recommend this duo to anyone looking. They are a dream team. Thank you Jennifer and Jose! -Sabrina Z  https://g.co/kgs/khNCB4
