Piano. It’s my forte!
Hello! 🙋🏼♂️ I’m Jack Watkins, a pianist based in Lancashire, UK.
I’ll play anything.
I’ve got an appreciation for all types of music, but the music I play mostly leans towards pop, easy listening, jazz and classical.
If you’ve got a specific request, I’ll be happy to play that too 😁

“Jack’s beautiful playing was the perfect addition to our day, and from our first meeting we knew that our wedding music was in the hands of a professional (quite literally!). Jack is a special, talented musician whose bespoke arrangements of both traditional and contemporary pieces had our guests in awe.
My entrance to the church began with the sound of Jack playing the piano, and my bridesmaids immediately turned to me and began to cry. His playing heightened emotions and set the tone throughout the day. Whilst we worked our way through masses of photos, Jack kept our guests entertained at our champagne reception. Later, upon conducting our receiving line, we received numerous comments about how the atmosphere had been perfect and how Jack’s playing was out of this world – even by some of the most unlikely guests! Our best man, in particular claimed how he could sit and listen to Jack play all day!
No review could ever do the justice of Jack’s talent – this is simply something you must experience for yourself. Jack, thank you so much for providing the perfect finishing touch to our special day. We couldn’t be more grateful Xx”
“Jack played at our wedding and was absolutely fantastic. He added something truly special to the day that couldn’t have been captured in any other way. Thank you so much, Jack. We’d definitely recommend you to all our friends. Friendly, accommodating and very talented.”
“We were very lucky to have Jack play the piano at our wedding. He has a great talent and we wanted him to play as much as possible.
He played before the church service, during the signing of the register, as we walked in and out and at the drinks reception... he must have played for hours!
We met with Jack prior to our wedding to discuss what we were looking for. He played beautifully our specific requests at the church and used his fantastic repertoire of songs during the reception which he linked to our own personal musical likes, and to our day perfectly!
Jack was professional, well presented, approachable, friendly and was happy to engage and take requests from our guests! We are truly grateful to have had him be a part of our special day. Thanks so much!”
