Solo Violin

"We were so thrilled with Jill's playing at our wedding. Having a violinist for our ceremony made it truly special. Jill was a pleasure to work with throughout the process and was very friendly and professional. She was very helpful in guiding us through our ceremony music selection and even learned a new song for us. Many of our guests commented on how nice her playing was. I would highly recommend Jill."


Solo violin is a beautiful and intimate choice for a small wedding or event. This option works best with classical music, or pop and jazz songs with lyrical melodies, as there is no harmony or bass line accompanying the solo melody. Jill knows countless songs as a soloist, and the list below provides just a small sampling. The highlighted titles below link to YouTube videos.
