At a relatively tender age, Andrew Harding has already amassed 10 years of performing experience. He plays at wedding ceremonies, dinner receptions, night-time entertainment and at day two parties all over the country, and plays as a solo performer, with other instrumentalists and with nationally renowned wedding bands.

Andrew's main package is piano or organ music at wedding ceremonies, and piano at receptions.

He also offers vocals with piano music at ceremonies, receptions and day after parties

In addition, Andrew is occasionally asked to perform ceremony music with singers or instrumentalists who are friends of the bride or groom, and will rehearse with these performers an hour before the ceremony. His familiarity with various types of ceremonies helps to put these performers at ease, who may not have performed at weddings before.

Andrew is a highly accomplished pianist, singer and organist. He holds the Associate of the Royal Irish Academy of Music (ARIAM) in piano, and has taught piano for almost ten years, including in the King's Hospital School. 

Andrew's diverse musical background has built his proficiency in classical, choral, jazz, pop, rock, blues, soundtrack and religious music and a range of other genres. He is equally comfortable playing sheet music and learning by ear, which equips him for playing a wide range of events. An extensive list of songs he performs, accompanied by recordings and videos, can be found at his website www.andrewhardingmusic.com.

He holds a First Class Honours degree in Music from Maynooth University, including firsts in Performance. During his time in college, he gained vast experience accompanying singers and other instrumentalists on piano, which helps him to pull together beautiful renditions alongside other performers at weddings even with very short rehearsal time. 

He was also a singer in the Choir of the World winning Maynooth University Chamber Choir for each of his three years in college, winning each competition that they entered in Feis Ceoil. He has also sung in bands in college, and with wedding bands, both as a lead singer and backing vocalist.

He is set to complete the Archbishop's Certificate in Church Music (ACCM), and plays the organ for weddings, funerals and church services. He also runs choirs, and his experience teaching choristers their lines and accompanying singers makes him very comfortable working with other instrumentalists at weddings. Every organ is different, and Andrew's experience playing at churches all across the country for Masses, services and wedding ceremonies uniquely places him to coax the best sound out of any organ he plays, regardless of location.

Andrew was brilliant, we had him play alongside 2 friends of ours, he was great communicating with us and them to make sure everything was exactly as we wanted it! He even made the time before the ceremony to practice alongside them!
I couldn’t have had a more professional and lovely pianist at our wedding!

We realised a couple of months before our big day that we wanted a pianist as our guests arrived at the reception. We were delighted to find out that Andrew was free. He was very flexible throughout the whole thing and even arrived early to set up his own sound system. We couldn’t recommend him more highly especially because his professionalism with our guests matched his tremendous piano skills.
Response from Andrew Harding Music
Hi Killian, thank you so much for your kind review. It was a pleasure to play for you and Ruth.

Andrew was an absolute pleasure to have for both church ceremony music and for the drinks reception. We had a singer for the church ceremony, and Andrew was very accommodating in working with her to ensure they worked together smoothly on the day. He plays beautifully and our guests compliment his repertoire for the reception too. Highly recommend booking him!
Response from Andrew Harding Music
Hi Rebecca, thank you very much for your review. Your choice of ceremony music was beautiful, and I very much enjoyed working with Niamh to make it all come together for you and Robert!

We have known Andrew for a number of years and we were delighted that he was available to play at the drinks reception at the celebration of our daughter's wedding. He is a supremely talented musician and was so accommodating throughout. Several of our guests remarked on the wide variety of his music and how much they enjoyed it. We recommend him highly for his musicianship, versatility and being so pleasant to deal with. We wish him continued success in the years ahead.

Andrew was a brilliant addition to my sister's wedding. He provided beautiful entertainment at the reception as guests arrived, with many stopping just to listen to him play. He was able to take requests to play some family favourites and created a very intimate environment through his music. Easily the best pianist I have ever come across and a phenomenally talented musician who could only add to a wedding day.
Response from Andrew Harding Music
Thanks so much Michael, I was very proud to be asked to play for your sister's wedding!

Andrew played at our wedding a few weeks ago and he was simply brilliant. We have had so many compliments from our guests. As well as being a fabulous musician he is the nicest person. He was quick to respond, polite and friendly. Andrew offered to play any pieces we requested. Would highly recommend booking if you're in need of a wedding pianist.

Andrew was a great asset to our wedding operation.
He really knows what he is doing whether piano or organ and could always be called upon to be spontaneous if we had a song request. He?s quite the musical prodigy and our guests thoroughly enjoyed his musical accompaniments.
He has a strong and confident singing voice and brought life to the day.
Andrew looks completely comfortable doing what he does. He appears focused and yet light-hearted and smiled throughout the ceremony. His friendly yet professional demeanour made him very approachable.

I found Andrew to be the most conscientious, skilled, and accommodating musician I have ever met. He has a warm and professional manner, is a superb keyboard player and a great singer, and can do a great deal more. Nothing was too much trouble and he really helped to make the day memorable.
