Mrs. Cummings was absolutely wonderful! She was able to fit us in on short notice and helped us arrange our wedding ceremony. She was great at suggesting different ways to play each song (piano, electric, strings, organ, or combination) to really add distinct character to each song and distinguish them from one another. She was extremely helpful at the rehearsal to make sure everything would be perfect on our wedding day. She even dressed to match the colors of the wedding. I highly recommend her to anyone for not only her exhaustive repertoire of music and outstanding ability to play the piano, but for her professionalism in streamlining our music to make it flawless.

Laura was such a joy to work with! She listened to my ideas and contributed so many wonderful ideas of her own. She even learned a new piece that I had my heart set on and played my college's alma mater for our recessional! If I could give her 10 stars out of 5 for the quality of service and value she provides, I would! I truly cannot recommend her more!

Laura was so professional and talented. She obviously invests much thought and practice time in preparing for each of her events. She communicated often and provided details of the music that we used to make a playlist so guests could listen for their favorites. She worked with us to match the style that we wanted to express, and she had so many great suggestions for both the ceremony and reception music that it made our planning and decision making easier. She even coordinated her attire to the colors and style of our wedding, and her outfit was beautiful. Everyone loved the music, and it provided such a wonderful atmosphere that our wedding wouldn't have the same without Laura performing.

Laura Cummings is a delight and talented musician, with a large catalogue of dynamic music. We put together a unique musical template together that was traditional and modern for our wedding. Laura took her time with me through our emails and our phone conversations to grow an understanding of our wants and needs. I sat in her home office, piano by our side, while we listened and figured out what worked, and what didn't until we were both satisfied. I learned so much more that day than I ever would have thought without Laura's direction and insight. We were truly blessed to have found her, and are forever grateful for our lifelong memories including Laura and her husband.

Laura was fabulous! She contacted me very quickly after I had inquired about her availability through her website. Soon after we spoke over the phone to discuss the style of my wedding, what I was looking for, and what she could provide. She was always very personable and I really enjoyed the fact that she doesn’t just do business through e-mail like most vendors. Laura delivers quality service and wants to develop a relationship with each client. She is very talented, has an amazing repertoire, and knows how to coordinate the ceremony music to your style of wedding. Meeting with her helped me develop my ceremony outline and the music to be played at our cocktail hour - it saved me hours of researching and listening to music online! She also was very familiar with my wedding ceremony venue (Marty Leonard Chapel), and knew exactly where to set-up, how to play to size of the venue, etc. She hadn’t performed at the Fort Worth Club before, and took time out of her busy schedule to contact the Fort Worth Club and walkthrough her set-up at the venue prior to the wedding. That is just one of many examples of how she goes above and beyond to be prepared and deliver quality to her clients.

Additionally, I had soloists performing in my ceremony, and Laura arranged for a very talented accompanist (Echo) to accompany them. I appreciated her taking the time to reach out to Echo and arrange for her to accompany the wedding, it was a huge help. My soloists were blown away by her talent accompanying, and said she was one of the best they had ever worked with.

Laura is very professional and talented; you can trust her with your wedding or event. She was such a joy to work with!

Look no further than Laura for a talented professional pianist for your wedding. Laura is the very best at what she does. She guides you every step of the way and has an enormous selection of music from which to choose. She arranges the music in a way that one piece flows into the next. My daughter's ceremony music was just beautiful. We are so appreciative!!

Laura did a great job at our wedding! She was very nice and very quick to get back to any question we had. We also had a certain song we wanted her to play. She found the sheet music for it, learned it and played it beautifully at our wedding. Everything she did was professional and just as we had hoped. We would recommend her to anyone who asks.

We can save you a lot of time and effort by strongly recommending Laura as your pianist. There really is no need to look any further. Her professionalism and openness will put you at ease the first time you meet her. She opened her home to us to choose our music and hear her play it in her home studio. She has a huge portfolio of music to choose from for any taste. The excitement she showed to perform for us was so comforting. She was even taking pictures of us with her camera after the ceremony. I think that really shows how much she cares for her clients as people. We weren't able to hear all of the music because we were downstairs getting ready for our wedding ceremony and trying not to pass out from nervousness, but we had almost everyone that did hear her play comment on how beautiful it was...from classical to Patsy Cline to the Beatles and so much more. In closing, we just want to mention how affordable her talent is. After spending so much money on so many things and then looking for a pianist we were actually floored at the low cost for high quality REAL music. Good luck in whatever ceremony you are about to perform and contact Laura quick. She's VERY popular!

Laura was a joy to work with. She is very talented and pieced together an amazing, unique wedding for us. As I was sitting in the brides room, I was in awe of how amazing everything was sounding during the prelude. Music was a pretty important part to us and she did awesome. She was so easy to get in touch with when we had questions or concerns ...she even learned a few new pieces of music for us... and they were fantastic! Now, when I hear these songs, I think of our wedding! Thank you so much, Laura for helping make our day so lovely!

Laura is just an absolute joy to work with. My daughter lives out of town and had to fly in to make wedding arrangements. Laura invited us into her home and provided hours of song samplings on keyboard, strings and the organ and offered her advice based on years of experience. We were totally lost on song selection but once she played a portion of it, we quickly recognized many of the traditional classics. The wedding ceremony was beautiful and we received many compliments on the music. Laura and TJ make a great team and I certainly would recommend them to anyone planning a wedding or a special event. Thanks Laura for a great job and for making Amanda and CJ's wedding day special. Kathy Miller and daughter, Amanda

Sounds of Laura provided excellent live wedding ceremony music for our wedding. Laura and I reviewed each song and the order of songs in advance. She is very flexible and willing to work with you on music. Since she is such a professional, I trusted her opinion and judgement and went with the list she proposed. But I didn't want to enter to "here some the bride" so she chose a more classical piece for my entrance. Her keyboard produces so many varieties of sounds, not only piano, but organ, pipe organ, and many other sounds. When we were developing the list of music, she would play me an example of each sound...here it is in piano, here it is in organ, etc...which I appreciated. My music was completely customized for me and our wedding day. Everything was perfect and we had so many complements for having live music and not a CD. Sometimes, if there is a change or the timing is off, a CD seems off with the people walking. For example, we had some elderly people in the wedding so Laura could see them and time the music to their walk...the bridal party didn't have to adjust to the music, Laura adjusted and accomodated the music. Laura works hard to ensure that everything is just perfect for your wedding and my husband and I were very very pleased with her and would definately us her again for a private party. She even wore a dress to match our wedding colors, which looks great in the pictures!! We also felt that her prices were very reasonable for the exceptional service she provides and the time she puts into customizing your wedding for you.

Laura was a blessing at my sister's wedding. We kept communicating by e-mail and by phone and she always was very kind to listen to our requests and she worked very hard in putting all the music together. The ceremony was full of symbolisms and different things than a traditional wedding and Laura did an amazing job juggling with the different parts of the program. We mainly speak Spanish but it wasn't a problem for her to deal with our broken English! Thank you Laura.

Sounds of Laura responded with the following comments:

With this particular wedding, I really do not understand at all why the bride's sister, Vanessa, did not fill in the last star on "Flexible."
We agreed upon 15 minutes of music for one of the Symbolisms, and 20 minutes of music for the other Symbolism. I learned two new hymns, and developed two different medleys for the background music needed for this part of the ceremony.

When I got to rehearsal, I quickly observed that 35 minutes of music for the Symbolisms was not going to be necessary at all. It turned out that I only needed to play about 5 minutes of background music for both Symbolisms.

I was more than flexible. I learned and worked on much more music than was needed. I always go that extra mile. Maybe some people just do not recognize all the extra work that really goes into preparing for a wedding ceremony.

One university professor attending the wedding told me after the wedding: "Your music was Grand!" My performance had everything the bride, groom, and sister asked for.

We planned our wedding long distance and waited until only a couple of months before the wedding to find a ceremony musician. We came across Laura and her prices and reviews seemed great so we decided to give her a call.
Working with Laura turned out to be wonderful. Laura is very passionate about her music and the art of compiling the songs together to allow a musical flow throughout the ceremony.
Laura was always very responsive with her e-mails and phone calls and was easy to communicate with.
Toward the end of planning there was a mix up with the ceremony outline, we had decided to plan the ceremony in a non-traditional way- but Laura was happy to be flexible and change the music up a bit to accommodate our wants and needs.
Laura's price is wonderful and includes her coming to the rehearsal- which was awesome. Her professionalism was really important to us, and helped us stay calm in our long-distance planning.
I would recommend Laura to anyone looking for a really lovely piano component to their wedding ceremony.

Laura was so sweet! We loved that she welcomed us into her home and took her time playing different music options for us and helping us choose songs that fit our wedding best. She had tons of songs to choose from, but at the time of our wedding, was not able to take any new song requests that were not already in her repertoire. Aside from that small detail Laura was very prompt, very organized, and a pleasure to work with.

Sounds of Laura responded with the following comments:

I had a huge amount of bookings on my schedule at the time of Shawna's Wedding. At that particular time, that is why I had to encourage a bride to try and work with my existing repertoire ( which is over 400 pieces of music.)

I often will learn 2 or more new songs for the weddings that I do. This past spring and fall, however, has seen an tremendous increase in my bookings, thus, I had to set some limits.

I encourage brides to book early on. This helps a vendor to be more flexible.

Laura played the piano at my wedding ceremony and it was so beautiful, i wanted to cry but i didn't want to mess up my make-up. I really loved how she played Ave Maria, the best of all is that i have in videotape to replay over and over.

I like to sit down with my brides, & help them in selecting & organizing their music for their ceremony. I will play samples of my extensive repertoire & demonstrate how I customize the sound to fit the genre & song style. For Ex. The Wedding March can be played on Organ setting, Piano, or Strings. My piano enables me to duplicate many other instruments in addition to the two Piano settings. One favorite is: Grand Piano in the foreground & Strings in the background.
