Acciaccatura Music

A grace note performed as quickly as possible before an essential note of a melody, and falling before the beat.


John Goldsworthy, arranger and acoustic double bass player has collaborated with Kay over several years. They have enjoyed bringing John's original arrangements to life, fusing together jazz, classical, tango and contemporary music.

I worked with Kay in a Jazz ensemble and with the Tango Nuevo group 'La Tin Shed Orquesta'. She is an exceptional musician and I always enjoy working with her. I know that she will help make any event special.

Daniel and Sue were married at Hawthorn Presbyterian Church in Feb, 2013. Kay collaborated with a violinst for Sue's walk down the aisle and played the pipe organ for the congregational singing.

Kay was truly wonderful to work with.  She is warm and gentle in nature, and yet so professional in her work.  I would recommend Kay to anyone who needs an accompanist / pianist.  Her dedication to practice so we could have our perfect day was outstanding.  
Thank you Kay for making our special day so memorable!!  I look forward to a continued relationship in the future.  Thanks again!!

Kay provided background music and ceremony music for Tara and Adrian's wedding at Helen's Hill Winery, Coldstream.


We've called on Kay's talents several times now, for our wedding, renewal of vows and mother's funeral.

In our experience, we've found Kay caring and professional, often going above what we'd expect (organising a violinist, assisting in music selection and arrangement).

We couldn't recommend Kay highly enough and wouldn't use anyone else!

Kay is a professionally trained and sensitive pianist. It has been a pleasure to collaborate with her, performing Brahms and other classical & contemporary cello works together.

She is a talented musician and a sincere person with a lovely disposition. I highly recommend Kay for accompanying, professional concerts and functions.
