Welcome to the Jazz Pianist website, I am Paul Sayer a professional Piano and Keyboard Player. I live in South Manchester and perform solo piano for Corporate Events, Weddings, Cocktail Lounges, Restaurants, Bars and Private Parties. My forte is the variety of piano styles and genres I can play, I customise my repertoire to suit different venues and customer preferences. I usually perform a combination of jazz classics from the american songbook, interpretations of modern popular music from the 60s through to the present, some film themes and popular classical music. I can provide bespoke music on request as I am a fluent reader, this means that I have a very large repertoire with which to keep everyone happy.
I work mainly in the North West and perform Jazz and Piano music in Manchester, Liverpool, Lancashire, Cheshire, Cumbria. West Yorkshire and Staffordshire. I can travel to anywhere in the UK and have been fortunate to play in many parts of the world. The Piano is a wonderful instrument but if your venue does not have one I can provide a high quality digital electric grand. All of the solo piano audio demos on this page have been recorded using the electronic sample based Synthogy Steinway Grand Piano via a Macbook Pro which is what I use live. Modern electric stage pianos are OK in an ensemble or group but they do not compare to the Synthogy when exposed to live solo piano work.
If you want to know some more about me I have included a Biography page.
I am offering a number of musical collaborations, with friends and associates I know and trust, to expand into duos, trios and quartets if your event requires it. I have been performing music for many years and can use this experience to help and advise you with your event. Just get in touch via my contact page.
