I would just like to say how great the Horizon String Quartet were last night, they were a great success and all who attended commented on how great they were. So can you please pass on my thanks to them for a great event.
Vanessa Gardezi
I just wanted to say that both the choir and stompy playground were fantastic.

It was such a shame to stop stompy playground earlier than planned but because of the issue with the stage we needed to get the dance floor set up otherwise we would have lost the momentum of the evening and because of the layout we could not dance anywhere else. Both LCV and stompy playground were such talented musicians and I feel so lucky to have had both groups play at my wedding. I will make sure once we get the video sorted I will get you a copy!
I would like to take this opportunity to say how wonderful Valeria performed for us at the wedding last weekend, she was absolutely fantastic!

I just wanted to thank you and please pass on my thanks to the guys in the Tower Trio for their playing at our wedding on 8th June. I didn’t get to hear much of them myself, but all our guests said they were excellent, so please pass on our compliments. I’ve already recommended you to one other couple getting married this year!
Debbie Matthews
Just a quick note to say thank you so much for providing the sax and piano duo on Saturday - everyone thought they were fantastic and thoroughly enjoyed the music.
She was superb. The quality of her performance and the calibre of her service to my family were so self-evident. She was entirely professional in all that she did and many people commented on the pleasure that her playing gave both at the start of the day and during the quiet period before the storm that was the wedding breakfast.
I write to thank you for your time
and help with arranging the string and jazz quartets
Both quartets played beautifully at our wedding reception and were very much enjoyed by us and all of our guests. The musicians were very professional, punctual, polite and enormously impressive. I would recommend them to everyone and we will definitely be using MSH for our future events. Please pass on our heartfelt thanks and praise to the very talented musicians we met on Saturday.
Just wanted to say thank you so much to the musicians that performed at our wedding, they were wonderful and it was the icing on the cake for me."
"We are also very impressed they managed to play so well on the boat as I for one felt very sea sick after that hour as it was so choppy on the Thames!
We were delighted with the string trio. They were just perfect."
"With delays in arrival of guests to church they worked their magic. I would highly recommend your service if music students for hire.

Sophie was amazing from the start, so helpful and reassuring. Nothing was a problem, she was a pleasure to speak to! The jazz trio were fantastic, everyone at the wedding complimented them and I would definitely use music students for hire again!
Keir MacKenzie
Your cellist Sam helped create a truly unforgettable moment for our 10 year anniversary. He arrived promptly at The Savoy, kindly agreed to wait behind a curtain poised to play on cue, and seemed genuinely excited to be part of this wonderful surprise. My wife described him playing the piece of music from our wedding as being "like a scene from a movie". A wonderful musician and a thoroughly decent chap too. Could not have been happier with the service and will recommend to others. Thank you.
Benjamin Broadley
MSFH sent Claire to perform at mine and my partners wedding. She turned up and set up promptly and played during the day. She was excellent and my guests and I were really impressed by Claire talents. I would completely recommend MSFH as they provide really talented musicians and provide a really smooth service to arrange everything. They and especially Claire made my wedding even better..

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you The Music Students for hire for providing a professional and amazing service for our wedding at The Gherkin . From start to finish Peter Baker has been very helpful and professional in providing us with 2 excellent music students, Naomi (violist) and Tom(Saxophonist). We are so happy as both made our day extra special.
We highly recommend using Music Students for Hire
Rakesh Dalal
We were over the moon with Sophia and the string quartet at our Wedding. Peter was in constant communication to ensure that the requirements were correct and understood so that they could provide the best service. Sophia and the quartet absolutely smashed it out the park on the day, from the ceremony through to the drinks reception, playing contemporay songs. Our guests couldn't stop telling us how amazing the quartet were. Would fully recommend. Thank you so much!
Laura Dykes
We had a string trio (North East Soiree Trio) perform at our wedding and they were amazing. They played all the songs that we had requested, and were a talking point amongst the wedding guests afterwards. Communication with 'Music students for hire' has been amazing throughout, always so fast, friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend!
Martin Cook
Professional arrangements prior to our wedding. We booked a Cellist who was very experienced and provided 2&1/2 hours of wonderful music during our wedding reception. Thank you
Maaga Okotie
