Piano Accompanying

close-upmusic

“Peter Auker is a delight to work with. He has accompanied  me many times playing my one-woman show in  cabaret and events”. (Aimi Macdonald, TV and film star)

“To work with someone as talented and generous with time as it is working with Peter is a rarity in this business, an incredible musician who works with the singer, again a hard thing to find. You never feel the need to compete with the music,  just to enjoy and flourish vocally.”
(Jordan Langford, professional actor and singer)

“For me, as a singer, there is a huge difference between a pianist and an accompanist. Peter is a prime example of an accompanist, who plays completely for the singer. It’s clear to see how passionate he is about theatre and music and this is reflected in his work.”
(Nathan Lodge, professional actor and singer)

Do you need a piano accompanist?

Ok, you might not be a pianist – let’s say you’re a singer or an instrumentalist. You’ve got an exam, audition, rehearsal or concert coming up and you need a piano accompanist – maybe at short notice.

Project Piano’s Peter Auker has many years of accompanying in so many different situations and genres – and what’s more, you can rely on him. Peter is a confident accompanist with two professional piano diplomas, and is a member of the Incorporated Society of Musicians, so you can be sure you’re in safe hands.

Peter has accompanied choirs, singers, church congregations, plus pretty much any instrument you care to mention. He’s worked extensively in the education world since 1984, and more recently (since 2009) has branched out into the professional musical theatre genre, working as an accompanist with many West End artists.

He is a strong sight-reader, and is happy to take on more or less anything!

Please contact Peter through the contact page with your requirements, and he’ll get back to you right away!
