Music Samples

I sing and play piano for weddings. Violin is also an option. I am lucky to have a profession that I love. It´s an honour  to play for church weddings and ceremonies and I try to make the music as beautiful and uplifting as possible. Music is a powerful tool, putting us in touch with our emotions and connecting people. I will  gladly guide you through the whole musical process, how to choose songs and manage the various details. I have recommended wedding set lists but am able to learn and perform any special music requests you may have.

Having played since the age of 5 and performed from the age of 12, I have years of experience not only during the church service but also for the drinks reception, and have played with the well known wedding agency The Bentley Boys. Please contact me on majaelliott@yahoo.com or phone 085 7842082. Thank you!

 

 

 

 

I am a professional vocalist from Galway and travel nationwide, I sing a large variety of music for couples for their wedding day. For this reason I need an exceptional pianist to accompany me. Maja Elliott is such a pianist. Her ability to sight read and accompany without sheet music makes her extremely versatile. Her knowledge and ability is far superior to many other piano players in Ireland and no style of music seems to be a challenge for her. Her fine touch and warmth makes her a sensitive and beautiful musician. Even being a sensitive musician she is a true professional and can handle any stressful situation and perform perfectly, ‘The show must go on’ and Maja does this with style and excellence. A loyal musician, reliable, solid and beautiful performer I can fully vouch for Maja as being one of Ireland’s top Piano players and an asset to any ensemble or occasion.
