JJPlays.com began in 2009 like a lot of personal websites do: a place for me to put my bio, headshot, and resume. As time went on, I realized I needed a way to give out my colleagues’ contact information to potential clients when I wasn’t able to take a gig. Eventually, that list of colleagues became the Pianist Directory.
With the help of my amazing colleagues, I started adding blog posts about the life of a working musician here at the Articles page.
I believe that music is not competitive, but inclusive; there is a gig that is right for every pianist, and a pianist that is right for every gig. The aim of JJPlays is to connect the right pianist with the client who needs them.
JJPlays.com is a completely free service. The pianists do not pay to be on the list, and potential clients do not pay any fees, other than what they agree to pay the pianists for their services.
