Congratulations on your engagement!

Congratulations to all newly engaged happy couples, from pianist Clive Swan

Christmas can be one of the most romantic times of the year, so it is no surprise that many couples use the opportunity to take the next step in their relationship and get engaged.
I would like to extend a heartfelt 'congratulations' to everyone who finds themselves in this wonderful position.
Of course, as the champagne bubbles start to become a recent memory, our minds turn to the busy task of planning your wedding day.
First on the list for most couples is choosing a beautiful wedding venue which will make the occasion feel special. Then there's the photographer and the caterers to decide upon.
For many couples next on the list is the choice of music for the wedding day.

How to choose a wedding musician

wedding flowers and champagne glassesDepending on the type of wedding you are planning, you might need a DJ or a full band to keep the dancing going late into the night.
Often though, it is the quiet moments during the afternoon where a wedding pianist can add a touch of magic to the proceedings. 
Clive Swan has a rich and varied repertoire of music which ranges from light jazz to show tunes, pop and soul classics and well-known songs from every decade from the 20s right up to the current day.
Giving your guests something pleasant to listen to - or even sing along to - can help make your special day into an unforgettable one!
Clive can provide light entertainment while the guests enjoy a champagne reception, or while they wait for photos to be taken of the Bride and Groom.

Clive Swan provides wedding pianist services to all areas of London, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Essex, Berkshire and Oxfordshire

Whether the venue you choose for your wedding is large or small, indoors or outdoors, Clive Swan will tailor his set to provide the perfect backdrop to your reception.

Often venues will have a piano already in situ which Clive can use, but he also has electric keyboards and a full PA system which can be used indoors or outdoors.

Please contact Clive on 01923 274 416, or email  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  to discuss your requirements. He is always happy to answer your questions and offer advice from his many years as an experienced wedding pianist. 


Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas and best wishes for 2016 from Clive!

Well, 2015 has been a very busy year for me, with wedding receptions, birthday parties and my weekly piano performances at Sopwell House in St Albans providing me with a wonderful opportunity to entertain and make people's events that extra bit special.
I have found that my audiences have really appreciated my mixture of light jazz, show tunes, and pop music from the early 20th century right up to current tunes. There truly is something for everyone and I am always grateful for the lovely feedback I receive.
playing piano at vintage tea partySome of the highlights of my year would have to be the Vintage Tea Party I was invited to play at, back in in July. Such a beautiful location in Hertfordshire, and the weather even stayed dry!
And of course, just the other week when I was joined on the piano for a surprise duet at Sopwell House during my regular slot there.
I always welcome a bit of audience participation, and it just goes to show that you can never know quite what to expect when playing the piano in public!
Bookings are starting to fill up for 2016, so please do get in touch if you would like to discuss your event.
I am available as a pianist for all types of events, from weddings and birthday parties, right through to corporate events, and will always add a touch of musical magic!
Merry Christmas and a very musical New Year!


Sopwell House

A recent guest at Sopwell House (where I play regularly each weekend) asked if he could join me for a duet.

It was an "out of the blue" request and I was delighted to accept.

We played George Gershwin's "Summertime" from Porgy and Bess, followed by the title song from Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom of the Opera together.

It went down extremely well with other guests and staff alike.

Later that night a message appeared on Facebook with the the following comment from guest pianist, Joel Goodman.

"Thx Hannah and Alex for my birthday stay at Sopwell House. Could not resist joining the resident pianist for a duet x"

I look forward to playing at Sopwell House again soon!
