Just wanted to reiterate our thanks for your outstanding playing on Saturday. You were very well reviewed by all our guests, many of whom recognised the exceptional degree of skill you clearly possess. The music was a very important part of our service, and it was all performed splendidly.

"Edward and I want to thank you so much for your super performance at our wedding. The service was overwhelming for the both of us and the beautiful music, played brilliantly, was a huge part of that. Those pieces will always be close to our hearts. (I have always wanted a trumpeter at my wedding and it was just as I had hoped and better.) You also gave a tuneful boost to the hymns! Thank you Sam, it was perfect."

“Sam, I can’t thank you enough for the wonderful playing, the great professionalism and sheer hard work you put in for the broadcast [live on BBC R4 – Christmas]. It went really well and we were all very pleased. Overall it was a great occasion and I hope you enjoyed listening. It simply wouldn’t have been as brilliant without the superb trumpet playing. It really added greatly. So thanks for all you did.”
“Just wanted to say a massive thank you for your absolutely brilliant playing at our wedding last Saturday. We were both so impressed, as was our congregation and we couldn't have picked anything better for me to come into down the aisle. We loved the descant too and so glad you were there. It made our special day even more special and thank you also for being so flexible and for sorting everything out with the music.”

“Thank you so very much for playing at Edward and Laura's wedding. The music was exactly as we had hoped and more and you and the organist made it. We really appreciated your input into the choice of hymns and music.”
“Sam, I was the choir master at the wedding on Saturday. I thought your playing added so much to the music and enjoyment. Thank you very much for giving such pleasure.”
"Sam recently played the trumpet at my fathers funeral. I discovered Sam by searching on the internet and was delighted with his quick and friendly response. He was very helpful in both understanding what was required and also in making suggestions as to the appropriate music to use. Sam was very reliable and professional and played with great sensitivity and intent. Although we had never met before, his presence at this occasion enhanced the mood that we were seeking and I know my father would have greatly appreciated his playing as did we."
