"You were so spectacular last night. Thank you for your amazing playing and patience with our goofball friends! We had so much fun singing with you, and although the balance tipped more to the side of classic hits than carols, it put everyone in the holiday spirit. We have had a number of pianists play over the years and you are by far the best, most talented, and kindest person we have engaged. We appreciate it very much and hope you will consider doing it again next year! Happy holidays! Kind regards," Tara from Winchester, MA
