That was beautiful playing; I noticed a great touch and a really great feel.

With degrees from the Royal College of Music and Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama to where she received the prestigious Leverhulme scholarship, Kiara performs regularly in Cardiff and London.

A specialist in delivering the contemporary songs with a classical refinement, Kiara can create an exquisite atmosphere instantaneously.

Kiara is an incredibly talented individual. We hired Kiara to perform at a rebranding launch in November 2010. Our guests’ responses werefantastic. People are still commenting on how good her performance was.
We were so pleased as a company and would not hesitate to employ Kiara again in the future. Cat is not just highly talented but a very friendly person. My one regret was that I did not arrange for the opening event and Kiara’s performance to be recorded.

Kiara's piano playing skills are excellent. Her wide ranging repertoire meant that we could have a beautiful classic piece as I walked down the aisle, as well as a modern number as we left as a married couple.
Kiara played lovely jazz music for another hour during our drinks and canapé reception immediately afterwards, which created a fabulous atmosphere in the room - this was particularly useful as we had rain on and off at this point!
I would have no hesitation in recommending Kiara for any function. She was very professional, courteous and was happy to chat through the options beforehand to understand what we wanted on our special day.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for playing at my ‘significant birthday’ party recently. To have you play made my night. The range of music you had, literally, at your finger-tips, was amazing. Not only do you play beautifully, but you really gauged the mood of the party and made it all go off with a swing! What a talent you are!

Jan Comrie - Private Client

Kiara performed a piece with a string quartet as part of the service for my wedding day, it was truly one of the highlights of my day, she is an incredibly talented individual.
I was grateful for not only her obvious musical ability but her friendly manner, relaxed attitude and professionalism which made her an absolute joy to work with. The performance on the day was beautiful and completely exceeded my expectations and I would not hesitate to book her again should the opportunity arise.
