Dustin Callahan has performed extensively throughout California as a solo artist presenting standard classical literature and original works, as an accompanist for vocalists, and in chamber ensembles.


As a pianist for parties and events he has performed for weddings, receptions, Christmas parties, cocktail parties and everything in between. He has a wide variety of background music and has performed for several dozen secular and traditional weddings throughout California in recent years.

Dustin is very familiar with the Catholic wedding ceremony, having performed as both pianist and organist for several weddings at the Mission Church at Santa Clara University in California and surrounding areas. He is currently a teacher of applied music and a collaborative pianist for the Marymount College Wednesday noon Mass and the University Choir. With undergraduate degrees in piano performance and composition, Dustin has a Masters of Music in Composition from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music.

As a highly-skilled and hard-working musician Dustin, upon booking, will accommodate every last request and learn any song your heart desires; making your special day even more special.

Together, with vocalist Bridgett Rivas, Dustin can perform anything from Schubert's Ave Maria (light classical) to Broadway classics to pop standards to light Jazz to Sinatra. Upon request, Dustin can perform any number of his neo-romantic compositions for piano (and voice).

On some occasions a piano may not be available at the venue; or, perhaps you would like to have music for an outside reception or party. Rest assured, our portable full-sized keyboard features rich acoustic piano sounds that are sure to impress.

Additional musicians (violin, flute, voice, viola) and instrumentation can be added or modified to perfectly match your entertainment needs.

Thank you so much for your consideration, book me now and I will personally work with you to ensure that the music is tailored exactly to your needs.

Dustin was amazing! He helped us plan all the songs. He met with my mom and I in advance to do a walk through of our wedding venue. He even learned new songs so we could have a family member sing. He was professional and simply wonderful to work with. I would highly recommended him to my friends and family! You rock Dustin Callahan!!!

Thank you soooo much for playing at my wedding. Even with the change in venue due to rain you were still on time and played beautifully on the piano. You are very professional and I will highly recommend you. I was so rushed that day and I feel so bad because I didn't get a chance to thank you personally. Again thank you for making my day special and memorable.

Sincerely,

Dion and Victoria Cuevas

He was very responsive and helpful! He traveled from Orange County to Santa Clara just to perform at our wedding - Lucky us! His music is BEAUTIFUL! Everyone who attended our wedding was blown away with the music. Dustin made our day very special - we will always be so thankful for that!

Dustin Callahan was our pianist for our wedding ceremony. He was very professional and responsive from the start! He was able to learn all the songs we requested in a short period of time and did a great job. I loved his rendition of "Butterfly Waltz."
