So you have this great little restaurant
/ cafe / lunchshop, but it's lacking a little...
...a little, um, a little something.
Ah! It needs ATMOSPHERE
A bit of gentle piano playing in the background is perfect for setting
the mood. It makes people feel relaxed and helps them to enjoy
But you don't want the music to get in the way. This is especially true
if you have customers who want to talk, such as friends doing lunch.
This means NO SINGING because if you have words flying around the place
it's really difficult to hold a conversation. Lyrics distract from the
atmosphere, they don't enhance it.
But if you have purely instrumental music, such as solo piano, everyone
can talk over it---they can still hear themselves think and can
constantly tune in or tune out of the music as they talk. I've even
known people to walk out of an expensive restaurant straight after
their last bite because the resident guitarist, who was a good singer,
suddenly went from instrumental to vocal and they couldn't talk anymore.
I have an extensive repertoire of sheet music (music books) which I
play from, spanning many styles. I play many well-known classical
numbers (easy-listening Beethoven, Schubert, Bach, Chopin, Satie etc),
plus just a few musical theatre
numbers, film music, latin american standards, etc.
And I can bring my own portable digital piano if necessary.
