Sharon was an absolute pleasure to work with! Very organized and extremely attentive to our needs! I would recommend Sharon to any other brides who would love a professional and talented musician!
Can't say enough great things about Sharon! Exceptionally talented, polite, professional and accommodating! We met with her before the wedding to talk through music and hear her play and she ended up helping us fill in so many ceremony details besides music. Her playing is lovely! We had her play ceremony music and our first dance (accompanied by my cousin). She met with my cousin for two rehearsals and also came to our rehearsal. The time she put in for our wedding was worth so much more than what she charged. She made us feel incredibly comfortable throughout the process and I knew we were in great hands. She appears to love playing music and helping with the planning process. I seriously can't say enough great things about her. We highly recommend!
Sharon is not only a great pianist, she's a top professional and we feel so lucky to of had her play at our wedding! She played for guest arrival, ceremony, and cocktail hour and everything was flawless. Sharon was able to accommodate our late song requests that helped make the day ours. She always replied to messages within a day and even came to our rehearsal to go over queues and make sure everything would go smooth the next day. I highly recommend Sharon for all piano needs :)
Sharon did an amazing job as our Ceremony pianist! She was extremely organized and in communication with us throughout the entire process. Sharon had a very wide range of songs to choose from, and she allowed us to add in requested songs to make our ceremony perfect. Thank you Sharon!
It was an absolute honor and privilege to work with Sharon—she's simply the best! Sharon is incredibly kind, thoughtful, detail-oriented, organized, and amazingly talented. From our first contact right up to our wedding day, Sharon was so easy to work with. She's so thoughtful and detailed that she will think of things that you as the bride didn't even think of :) I was nervous about a few of my other vendors following through, but I never once worried about Sharon. As if all this isn't enough, Sharon even learned new music for our ceremony. Thank you, Sharon, for making our ceremony amazing! It meant so much to hear these special songs played on our wedding day.
Sharon was wonderful to work with! We had a small wedding at Como and her lovely piano music added so much to our day. We had the opportunity to meet with her beforehand to pick out music and hear some selections, and she had wonderful ideas for which pieces would work well together. She was easy to be in contact with before the wedding to double check on the selected pieces and where and when she should set up and play. I would highly recommend Sharon's piano playing at any event!
Words cannot express how amazing Sharon and Serena were at our wedding hosted at Nicollet Island Pavilion, 3-12-16. Sharon was extremely helpful in our selection of music, making sure we had the right songs for our wedding. She was easy to work with and very accommodating. With three singers coming from different locations, she was able to meet with them to go over their different songs. Overall, it was a great experience and we were happy they played on our special day. We would recommend Sharon and Serena a thousand times to anyone needing a musician.
We can't recommend Sharon highly enough! We planned our wedding on relatively short notice and were so lucky that she was available. Not only was it a great experience to work with Sharon on the front end, but her performance at our wedding was amazing. We wanted a vocalist and she suggested her colleague Mary Pat Nydahl, she was a perfect choice! And just a note to all prospective brides and grooms, while Sharon and Mary Pat were definitely the consummate professionals, we also have to say, they were just a pleasure to work with because your wedding really is supposed to be special and fun and they definitely fit the bill!
Sharon played our wedding ceremony and cocktail music on 10/8/2016. She is so kind and pleasant to work with. She offered suggestions during our initial meetings but ultimately deferred to what we wanted for our special day. She is timely, professional, courteous - the list goes on and on. If you are looking for beautiful music and reliability for your special occasion, look no further than Sharon!!
Sharon Planer Pianist It was a pleasure to work with Sharon. We booked her play our ceremony and cocktail hour music for our wedding at Semple Mansion. We had a good idea of the music we wanted and she was very willing to work off our requested list. She also got new sheet music to learn a song she previously did not know. I felt her prices were fair, her communication was prompt, and her service was highly professional. After showing initial interest, she was very helpful and sent us some of her music to listen to and suggestions for popular music during our event. We also met with her in person to plan out the song selections and we got to hear her play the songs, which was an added bonus. The piano music was beautiful and I would recommend Sharon for anyone looking to add a pianist to their special event!
Sharon is a very talented and thoughtful pianist who was wonderful to work with from start to finish! I especially appreciated all of her prompt and detailed email communications. During our planning session several months before our vow renewal she played many songs for us to listen to which was very helpful in making our final song selections for the ceremony and cocktail hour. She took the time to listen to our ideas and provided musical expertise and guidance which was very helpful. On the day of our celebration she arrived at the venue well in advance to setup her pianos and worked seamlessly with our officiant and other vendors. We even received a lovely card in the mail from her after our ceremony! We were thrilled that she was a part of our celebration and would highly recommend Sharon without hesitation to play for your wedding or special event!!
Sharon did a fantastic job playing our wedding! She met with us a couple times before our wedding and made her schedule work with whatever was best for us as we were obviously busy planning the rest of our wedding. She listened to the general ideas/theme and music selections we wanted played during our wedding and was able to make additional recommendations and provide some ideas to make it all work. We had a few unique songs that we wanted played and Sharon went above and beyond by purchasing the sheet music for these songs and learning them before out wedding day! She met with us again to play all the music to make sure it was what we envisioned. I can honestly say that Sharon exceeded what we were hoping for and we received numerous compliments from our guests. I could not recommend Sharon more! She was so kind and willing to do whatever it took make out wedding vision a reality! -PR
Sharon played for my wedding in February of 2016. She was so easy to work with! We met at my venue to go through songs, and she made some really nice suggestions, which was great, because I wasn't really sure what I wanted! She and the Violinist played beautifully at our wedding and the post-ceremony cocktail hour. I would HIGHLY recommend her! Thanks again Sharon for making our day so special :)
Sharon was very organized and professional from the very beginning. We greatly appreciated how she conducted her business. Upon meeting her, we knew she was perfect for our ceremony musician choice. She seemed to understand our vision perfectly and played beautiful selections for us. She learned a beautiful version of the song I wanted to walk down the aisle to. We received many good words about her playing for the ceremony and cocktail hour. Sharon was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. We highly recommend her!
Sharon did such a great job! She was so detailed and precise from booking to the end of our big day. She made everything flow so well and made my life WAY easier on our wedding day. We would recommend her again and again!
Sharon did an excellent job as a pianist for our wedding. She was very talented and willing to accomodate with our song requests. She helped us plan our ceremony and was very experienced as a pianist for weddings! Her organization and thoughtfulness made our ceremony planning stress-free. We would definitely recommend Sharon.
Sharon was simply wonderful at our wedding ceremony! We had a few ideas for our music but needed help filling in some of the blanks and Sharon was perfect at guiding us through our choices. She knew the right questions to ask to steer us in the right direction without taking over or making it feel like our opinions were getting lost. She plays beautifully, everything from classical to contemporary, and even learned a new song that was special to us for the processional. She worked with our wedding planner and officiant to get all the timing down, she handled all the arrangements herself so we didn't have to worry about a thing on the big day - a complete professional from beginning to end! Thank you, Sharon for helping to make our wedding day so beautiful!!!
Sharon was wonderful! She was great to work with through the whole process and she was always very responsive. She played very beautiful music and it made our day very special!
Sharon is such a warm, sweet, talented woman! Sharon was my pianist for my outdoor wedding. When I started wedding plans, I was out of the country so Sharon and I had kept in touch through email, which wasn't a problem. It turned out she had visited the same country I now live in, so she sent pictures of when she was there. I thought that was very cool. Sharon will go above and beyond to make sure you are happy. The day of our first meeting, she went over to my wedding venue and took pictures of where her piano would go. Her piano playing is so beautiful I was holding back tears during the meeting. She learned a new piece of music for my bridal march which was also very impressive. She gave all of her music information to our officiant so that was very helpful when we wrapped up things with him. I am so happy we worked with her, she was so helpful and nice. We will miss her!
Sharon did an amazing job at our ceremony! The music was perfect for our venue space! And she met with us before the wedding and went over all her music which helped us a ton when selecting songs! She did a great job!!
Sharon was completely professional and played beautifully! She had a huge selection of music to play on our special day and was very helpful in helping us decide. She also sent a sample CD when I first contacted her and already had most of my music selected. She was so professional and very organized. She had all the details typed up and emailed to me to help me plan how the day would be. She also was in contact with my officiant and they worked out all the details amongst themselves. She was always early to ever appointment and always prepared. We were so lucky to have Sharon!! She took all the stress away for the day. So many guests commented on how beautifully she played both during the ceremony and during the cocktail reception. I cannot say enough good things about Sharon!!!

Very professional and a top-notch pianistReviewed on 7/04/2013 Caroline T
Sharon was my first choice as the pianist to play during our ceremony. She did a wonderful job; she even learned some Italian pieces to play, since we were were doing a cross-cultural Italo-American wedding ceremony. The guests were very impressed with the music Sharon played. She did a very good job at working with the other musicians who collaborated with her. In all, I would highly recommend Sharon for wedding ceremony or reception music. Very friendly and easy to work with.
Wonderful Wedding DayReviewed on 10/26/2012 erika w
Thank you Sharon for being reasonably priced and organized in planning and playing music on our wedding day. The music was beautiful and we appreciated your reliability. We met once early in the summer to talk through the ceremony and you were there on a cool fall day to perform without any concerns. We had a wonderful wedding day and would recommend your services to anyone!
