A funeral service is a time to mourn our lost loved ones, and also a time to celebrate the life and achievements of a much loved family member or friend.
Live music at a funeral service is an opportunity to say goodbye with a unique and special service that will inspire and uplift fellow mourners.
With over 20 years experience in church services, let me assure you the reactions from people attending such a service are at times overwhelming, particularly when we honour our departed with a musical accompaniment that is near and dear to the deceased and their family. Personal music can really assist and comfort those left behind in dealing with their grief. Importantly, this also helps them to feel they have provided a unique and special opportunity to say a heartfelt goodbye to a loved one.
Q. What is the cost of music for a funeral service?
A. Basic cost is $200 which includes organ and vocals. If further instruments or voices are required, this can be arranged with prices provided on request. Depending on the location of the venue, an extra charge may apply for time and petrol.
If only music is required without singing, the cost is $180.

A. Yes, I have played for church services for over 20 years and can offer many suggestions of music and where in the service it is played.
