As a Southampton Funeral Organist, what can I offer you?

I have been a Southampton Funeral Organist for over 20 years, playing for Funerals and Cremations many Churches and the Crematoriums around the Southampton area.

Provided the Organ is in good working condition, I am able to play it.  Otherwise, I have a Yamaha Keyboard with fantastic organ sounds.

Any Hymns required are no problem, and I have a lifetime’s experience playing for and accompanying singers professionally.    All Hymns are given proper introductions which will be obvious to the congregation.

Prior to the ceremony I can either play organ preludes or soft reflective piano pieces, and for the Entry, Reflective and Exit music, you can choose anything you like. Pop, Jazz, Classical etc.  During the Committal, I usually play some soft, peaceful music, but whether you have this is entirely up to you.

For Roman Catholic and other services in Church, I can play for a Requiem Mass, and similarly, will play soft music during Communion if you so wish.

CDs/Ipods are great, what could be better than having a real live musician playing music that is tailored especially?

You and your family could be looking for a piece of film music, or an obscure song which is not available either as sheet music, or even on CD or download.  If you can provide me with the film clip, I can work the music out for you for no extra charge.

Prices for a standard 30-45 minute Funeral service start at £75 – No VAT applicable. Please email me at stevechristiepianist@gmail.com  or call 07530 532767.

Once a booking is made it is no problem to arrange a meeting to discuss music, and I can play some pieces for you if you are undecided.

If a venue doesn’t have an organ or piano, this is no problem as I can supply an excellent Yamaha Piano Keyboard and BOSE speaker system, which is both incredible sounding, and very compact, so can fit into the smallest of areas! This comes as standard with any booking for no extra cost. I always bring it with me in case of emergencies, even if the venue has a piano.

You can also hire my stylish Baby Grand Piano Shell (which is basically a nice looking enclosure for a keyboard) which comes completely flat packed, and can be carried up small staircases.
