The Musician's Job is to Convey Emotion
Funerals and solemn occasions fulfill two essential purposes: a farewell and a celebration of a life. Music speaks directly to the heart. The right music, well played, will enhance the celebration of a life.

The following musical suggestions, from the classical, rock, and pop genres, provide a focus for the emotional needs of the moment. They work well. It is important to note that not all music is effective on a solo guitar; however, an extensive library is available, so please ask if you have a special request. See the Music page for a more detailed description of the repertoire, recommended recordings, etc., or phone 0405 194 724
