About Tailor Made Music Agency

The classical and jazz specialists

Looking for live musicians for your wedding but don’t know where to start?

I’m Rosie, founder of Tailor Made Music Agency, and I’m here to help!

Specialising in classical and jazz, I’ve put together a collective of some of the finest professional musicians in the UK. Harpists, string quartets, pianists, brass ensembles, jazz groups, opera singers and more.  I offer something for everyone. Using my years of experience working in the classical music industry, I’ve vetted the musicians, so you don’t have to.

I offer you personalised advice on what will work best for your wedding.

In our consultation I want to find out all about you as a couple. Your taste in music, your favourite songs, what your venue is like, and what kind of atmosphere you want to create at different points of the day. With this information I’ll shortlist several artists for you to consider. You’ll get detailed information and quotes from each, saving you hours of research.

I’ll also arrange a secure contract for you, handle all communication and keep track of the details. This will give you peace of mind that everything will run smoothly on the day.

Enquire through Hitched today for your free consultation! No obligation to book and no hard selling. Just helpful advice to make sure you get the perfect music for your wedding.

  • "Summer Wedding, Devonshire Terrace (Google review)"
    This testimonial was entered by Tailor Made Music Agency on 16 June 2020

    We hired a string quartet for our wedding through Tailor Made Music Agency, and we're really glad we did. Rosie was really easy to deal with, and delivered exactly what we wanted at a great price. The musicians themselves were really professional - they were clearly very experienced, great players, easy to contact in the run-up to the big day, turned up on time, played really well and created a lovely atmosphere. Their repertoire list was extensive, and they went out of the way to learn a couple of special extra pieces of music for us. I would certainly use Tailor Made Music Agency again, and would recommend them to others.

  • "Autumn Wedding at Mercure Box Hill Burford Bridge"
    This testimonial was entered by Tailor Made Music Agency on 16 June 2020

    We were so happy with the harpist's performance. She ensured that the day was extra special and many of our guests told us how beautiful the music was. I’m more than happy to leave reviews. Thank you for helping with the organisation and thank you to your harpist.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is your starting price?

Prices are set by the artists themselves, so vary from group to group. They also vary depending on the number of artists, length of booking, travel costs and any additional expenses (such as PA hire). I will take your budget into account when recommending artists. As a rough guide, prices start at £160 for a solo pianist (piano provided by the venue), £210 for a solo cellist, £320 for a solo harpist, £440 for a jazz duo and £550 for a string quartet (all for a 1 hour booking within London). Please enquire for more accurate quotes based on your specific needs!

What services do you offer?

I provide professional classical and jazz musicians for wedding ceremonies and background music. I have a range of musicians available suitable for all types of wedding. I offer personalised advice helping you work out what type of live music would work best for your wedding. All bookings are fully contracted and you are given full booking support from start to finish, to take the stress out of booking musicians.

What is included in the wedding package?

Ceremony bookings typically include 15-20 minutes of background music as guests are arriving, entrance and exit music and 2-3 pieces during the signing of the register. Background music bookings are also available for drinks receptions and wedding breakfasts. Some artists offer special wedding packages for various combinations of ceremony, drinks reception and wedding breakfast. I'm happy to discuss more unusual bookings as well.

How far in advance should I contact you?

Around 9 months is ideal, but I am happy to take enquiries much earlier or much later than that. I will consider very last minute enquiries, if my musicians have availability.

What style of music do you offer?

My artists specialise in classical and jazz music. I have made a conscious decision to focus on these two areas of specialism where I can offer real expertise, rather than casting my net too wide. However my artists' repertoire is varied and covers everything from pop songs, musical theatre and film music to folk, Latin American music and church hymns. So there is something to suit all tastes and keep all of your guests entertained!

Type of musical group:

I offer a wide range of classical and jazz soloists and ensembles, including: string quartet, string trio, string duo, solo violin and solo cello; harp, harp and flute duo, harp and violin duo, harp and cello duo, harp, viola and flute trio; solo classical piano, piano and cello duo, piano trio; opera singer accompanied by piano, keyboard, organ or backing track; woodwind quintet; brass quintet or brass trio; classical guitar, guitar duo with flute; solo jazz guitar; solo jazz piano or keyboard; jazz duo, trio, quartet or quintet of various line-ups including guitar, piano, keyboard, double bass, drums, saxophone, trumpet, trombone or vocals. Big band and full orchestra bookings available by special request.

Size of musical group:

Typically between 1 and 5, but I can do much larger ensembles including a full big band or orchestra, by special request!

Repertoire:

My artists specialise in either classical or jazz performance but include arrangements in a variety of musical styles within their repertoire, from classic and modern pop hits to folk tunes, musical theatre, film music and more. Each artist has their own repertoire list, which I will provide you with when you are making your selection.

Is it possible to request something that is not in the repertoire?

Absolutely! Many of my artists will also do a special arrangement just for you if a specific piece is requested. Do tell me if there’s something particular you are looking for and I will find the right musician for you!

Experience:

Although Tailor Made Music Agency is a new company, I (Rosie, founder and bookings manager) am a highly experienced classical music management professional, having worked at the Association of British Orchestras, the BBC and the Royal Academy of Music. I have handled bookings for high profile clients including the Royal Academy of Arts, Harrods, Savills and the Royal Commonwealth Society, as well as numerous weddings and private parties. I was made an Honorary Associate of the Royal Academy of Music in 2018. My artists have trained at the world's top music colleges and are all working professionally across London and internationally. They are all highly experienced in playing for weddings and events and dedicated to giving couples the highest quality musical performances.

Do you have your own equipment?

With the exception of pianists and organists, my artists all provide their own instruments and equipment. Occasionally for particularly large events, additional PA hire will be required and I will discuss this with you or your venue. Pianists can only be booked if the venue has a well-maintained piano in situ, although my jazz pianists can provide high quality keyboards/stage pianos. I can assist with piano hire if necessary.

Are you able to travel?

My musicians are all based in and around London, but are willing to travel, including to destination weddings outside of the UK. Some musicians travel by car, others only use public transport. I will take this into account when recommending artists to you.

Is there a charge for travelling?

Yes - travel costs will be taken into account in your quote. In most cases artists do not charge additional travel costs within the M25.

Do you cover more than one wedding a day?

Yes I do, as I have multiple artists. An individual artist would typically only do one wedding a day.

Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?

Bookings are managed by me (Rosie). But Tailor Made Music Agency as a whole is made up of a collective of artists.

What is the length of time of the act?

This varies depending on your requirements. Typically the shortest booking is 1 hour, and the longest is 3 hours. Some artists will do longer bookings by request and offer package rates or a day rate. I can tailor the booking to whatever you need.

How much time do you need to prepare for an act?

This varies between acts, from 15-20 minutes for smaller groups with minimal equipment, to 45-60 minutes for larger groups with more equipment.

Do you charge per hour or per event?

Fee are quoted per booking and take into account the number of artists, length of booking, travel costs and any additional expenses (such as PA hire).

If needed, would you be able to work extra hours

Yes, by negotiation with the artist.

What are the forms of payment?

The booking fee is payable to the agency by bank transfer or credit/debit card via Stripe (a secure online payment platform). The balance is payable to the artist directly by bank transfer, cash or cheque.
