Here are the answers to frequently asked questions. Feel free to contact Iyanna if anything is still unanswered.
As soon as you can. Of course last minute bookings are possible, subject to availability, however the more time given to prepare for the special day the better.
The date is reserved with a non-refundable 50% deposit. The remaining balance is at least 30 days before the event. In the case that the full balance is not received by the agreed date, the reservation will unfortunately be cancelled.
There may be occasions where music is only wanted for a short amount of time. However, the minimum time required per booking is one hour. The reason being, it takes time to set-up, go over cues and pack up after the event. The price packages also includes travel costs.
Once booked changes can be made according to availability. As the original date/time was reserved for you, any conflicting bookings would have been refused. For this reason there may be a charge to change your original booking.
Of course. Every enquiry will be provided with a proposed repertoire, which we can then amend to your liking.
On rare occasions, keeping your music preferences in mind, I may need to change the repertoire order or selection at the last minute.
(note: this would not apply to custom songs purchased outside of set packages).
Unfortunately not! My repertoire is constantly building, so it’s hard to document. I’ll always provide you with a sample repertoire, based on your stated preferences, which is followed by further discussions on a call.
Of course! All requests are considered, some pieces may need to be adapted in order to be more suitable for the violin, others may need extra time to prepare. As a result, there may be an additional cost. If advance notice is given, all should be fine.
Packages include a consultation and the actual performance. Attendance at the rehearsal is of course an option, but at an additional cost.
Unless otherwise requested my dress code will always be formal. If there is a specific theme just let me know, I will see what I can do.
Typically around 30 – 60 minutes prior to when it starts. This is adequate time to set up and take last minute music cues. Everything else would have been prepared in advance.
It is not guaranteed that I will be able to extend the booking time on the day of the event. In the cases that I can, there may be an additional charge.
Yes. However, due to its nature, the violin cannot be exposed to extreme weather conditions. In the case of any precipitation or extreme heat, adequate covering would need to be provided. If you would like me to play outside this needs to be stated in advance. Outdoor power supply would also need to be provided.
You don’t need to worry about providing speakers, I attend events with my own PA system.
This would allow the music at the event to run a lot more smoothly. If an individual of your choosing is able to arrive 30 minutes prior to the event and go through cues as to when you’d like each song played, it would make things a lot easier.
I do share posts on social media forums, as it helps those going through the planning process visualise different possibilities! If you have any questions on this, please do let me know.
