FAQ, Booking and General Policy

The average rate for a professional wedding pianist in Southern California ranges between $350 to $450 (flat fee for the 1st hour) with a rate of $50 to $100 for each additional hour. The professional fee includes the time to set up (usually an hour before the appointment), learn the music, and cater to other special requests.

Some venues have an in-house grand piano. If your venue does not have one, we will provide a portable keyboard. If you prefer a grand piano, you may contact outside/third-party rental companies. We do not offer piano rental at the moment.

We can accommodate requests to accompany singers. Kindly indicate this when booking a pianist and let us know ahead of time. If the singer would like to rehearse with the pianist, we can also schedule a rehearsal on the day of the event, preferably an hour before the appointment.

Our pianists generally wear a black suit with a black tie (men) or a long black dress (women). If you have specifications such as a theme, please let us know and our pianists will dress accordingly.

Margie at Ocdamia was a dream to work with! We were curious about the possibility of having live music at our wedding and submitted an inquiry—and within minutes, received a response! This was consistent with all of our interactions. She was incredibly prompt in all her communication and took care to respond to our questions completely. She helped us decide on musicians that would be appropriate for our venue and vision, and made the booking process seamless and stress-free. Our musicians were talented, professional, timely, and did a wonderful job accommodating our requests. It was a beautiful addition to our ceremony, and truly an incredible value. Thank you Margie and the OMG team for helping make our wedding day so perfect!

    Dwight is an amazing pianist. He was very nice and professional. He easily made changes to the song arrangement on the fly, and he granted every detailed request I asked for so easily and beautifully. He played music that literally brought me to tears. I was extremely happy that I got a chance to work with Dwight. He wildly exceeded my expectations for a pinaist, and I definitely couldn’t have asked for a better pianist for our big wedding day

    I worked with Margie for my wedding, and she was a dream vendor to work with. She was :
    1) very attentive to every queries that I had
    2) very professional
    3) very nice
    4) very patient
    5) easy to work with
    6) has a staff of amazing musicians
    7) quick to respond
    8) will work at late hours just to answer your questions

    I put a lot on her, and she has taken care of me very well. I couldn’t have asked for a better vendor to work with. Will 100% recommend Ocdamia to anyone, and will work with them again if I have another chance
