How much time do you need to set up?
I usually need one hour to set up the harp, tune and get changed before the performance.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
Classical / modern music: Einaudi, Alexis Ffrench, Liszt and Debussy.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance I already know it. If there is a special song you'd like me to learn I am happy to do this for you. Three unique songs are for free.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I always try my best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let me know.
Can you play outdoors?
Yes, I can. I usually bring my PA System so the guests can enjoy the music during drinks and canape'. However, if it is raining then I will need full cover or to perform indoors as my instrument is valuable and could be damaged. I normally bring my music stand I ask for a normal chair.

We would highly recommend Stefania!"
