  • Sharon came highly recommended by our Venue. We had several others we wanted to use, but unfortunately they were all busy - BUT fortunately for us, I think she was a better choice after all. Very professional, showed up and did her thing. Sounded wonderful. Kelly and her discussed via email and phone because the bride was out of state, but knew what she wanted and Sharon was able to accommodate her.

  • We engaged Sharon for two events --- a corporate cocktail reception and a retirement party. In each case she was extremely responsive and helpful in planning our events. She knew each of the venues we used and was extra considerate of providing specific and appropriate music selections. She is a very accomplished pianist.

  • We were very satisfied with the service provided by Sharon Planer, pianist at our party. She was professional, yet flexible when dealing with people at our function. She is a talented pianist and demonstrated an ability to play a variety of music. We recommend her and would definitely consider using her again.

  • 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!

  • 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 some 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 gave 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. We didn't have a traditional/religious ceremony and most of the music was customized to exactly what we wanted! The piano music was beautiful and I would recommend Sharon for anyone looking to add a pianist to their special event!

  • Sharon played the piano for our daughter's wedding reception. A friend recommended Sharon and she did not disappoint. She had an amazing repertoire, yet was very flexible in adding many of my requests. She totally understood that we were looking for jazzy, romantic background music. My guests really enjoyed Sharon's performance. My regret is that I was so busy hosting the event, that I hardly had time to listen to Sharon.

  • Pianist for Parties was a wonderful choice for us. Not only did we get beautiful ceremony piano music from Sharon but Sharon helped us find a wonderful vocalist in Mary Pat. Both Sharon and Mary Pat went out of their way to make our wedding perfect. Sharon went the extra mile to learn new music for our wedding and even took time out of her schedule to make it to our rehearsal. By being at our rehearsal she was able to meet the officiant and wedding coordinator so that everyone was on the same page the day of our wedding. I would highly, highly recommend both Sharon and Mary Pat, they were amazing!

  • I feel very fortunate to have hired Sharon Planer to play the piano at my father's memorial service and would highly recommend her. She plays beautifully and is willing to work with her clients. Much of the music that was played at the service was left to her discretion and her choices were very appropriate and beautiful. She was great to work with - patient, flexible in working with the priest who would be presiding at the service and myself as we planned the memorial service. She was quick to respond to the emails we sent and informed us when she would be difficult to reach, Sharon was also willing to come in early to meet with my son before the service so he could practice the song he was singing and that she would be accompanying.

    responded with the following comments.

    Thank you for your kind words, Cyndee. All the hard work and thoughtful planning on your part and that of your family really personalized your father's memorial service. I appreciated the direction that you and your priest gave me. Thank you for allowing me to honor your father with music.

  • Sharon was wonderful to work with. She even contacted the owner of the home we were staying at to ensure the piano was in tune. She made all the guests feel comfortable the entire evening and has a very wide selection of music.

    Dear Scott, I enjoyed your guests interaction with my music. Their songs requests, spontaneous dancing and even joining in on the conga drums made it especially fun! I enjoyed sharing my music for your wonderful celebration!

  • Sharon provided background music for our client appreciation event. She was professional to work with. Her talent and musicality were excellent, and she was even able to take requests from our clients, which I had not considered so she was also able to go-with-the-flow! We appreciated her services and will hopefully have the opportunity to use her again in the future.

  • Sharon did a great job. She met with me prior to go over the options for our ceremony music and sampled the song choices for me right then. She helped me pick all of the key songs to go along with my ceremony.

    Kathy, Thank you for your kind words. I appreciated your guidance on the type of music you wanted me to play and that you took the time to meet with me in person. I enjoyed getting to you as well as playing for your wedding!

  • I came across Sharon after Googling a pianist for my wedding ceremony. After my initial contact with her I was so impressed that I couldn't wait to work with her. When I finally went to read the reviews and saw she was one of the top rated pianists in the city, I was even more excited about my decision. Sharon provided constant, prompt and thorough communication throughout the entire wedding planning process. She was one of the most thorough and organized vendors that I worked with on our wedding day. We felt it was an incredible value, her piano playing was beautiful and made the day exactly what I had dreamed. We had her join us for our rehearsal the night prior and that was a huge help for the entire wedding planning, so I would recommend you spend the extra to have her there. This is a truly great value to have natural, flowing, live music. Your guests will appreciate it and you will be grateful for the memory when you walk down the aisle.

    Sarah, I appreciate your thoughtful and kind review. Thank you! Planning a wedding from out-of-state is challenging. Your clear communication with me was extremely helpful. Your great song requests personalized the musical atmosphere of your ceremony to reflect you! I loved knowing that the music was so important to you. I wish both of you much happiness!
