How to Find an Accompanist
How to find the right musician to play for you on piano or guitar, while you sing.
If you’re anything like me, then you will need to build a list of suitable accompanists that you can call on to back you up for gigs. Even though I play guitar and piano, I still feel most comfortable just singing while someone else plays the piano for me.
So how do you go about finding an accompanist if you don’t have any contacts? Here are a few ways I use that have worked for me all over the globe:
1. Look online for gigs in the area you want to perform in and take notice of the players.
2. Get friendly with your local music scene and ask friends for recommendations.
