Student Testimonies and Performance feedback
May 2022 Wedding
"Kendra has been absolutely amazing to work with. She's super nice and is always quick to respond to questions. She plays absolutely beautifully, we had so many of our friends who came up to us after the wedding telling us how much they loved her music!! There were two songs that we wanted in our ceremony that she wasn't familiar with but she was amazing and was able to find the music sheet and backtracks and played them during the procession. I cannot say enough good things about her! She arrived on time to the venue, she coordinated with our day of coordinator and our officiant, she looked stunning, she was super responsive and easy to communicate with throughout the entire process. Truly had such a wonderful experience with Kendra. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone, and in fact i've already recommended her to a few of my friends who are getting married later this year, in case they haven't found someone already! Loved loved loved her."

Kendra Grittani's Stellar Cello Performance at Our Wedding
"Kendra Grittani is a rare musician. She is highly talented, performs elegantly, and has an instinct that is truly second-to-none. Kendra was a later addition to our wedding but you would never have known it. She came completely prepared with an arsenal of musical compositions and was masterful in its application. Kendra was an absolute hit with our guests and we are still receiving complements about her performance. She was able to accommodate our musical requests with precision, perfect timing, and a level of subtlety that was inspiring. Musical instinct is something you either have or you don't...Kendra has it in spades and we could not recommend her highly enough. Bravo!"
Sounds amazing and very professional
"Kendra provided the music for our ceremony and cocktail hour at our wedding. She was very friendly, professional and sounded great! She really elevated our event- we couldn’t be happier!"
"Kendra is a creative, flexible, and caring teacher. She helped me to play cello again after a stroke weakened my left hand. She carefully coached me through positioning, giving me exercises to strengthen the hand and fingers. And she also did far more: She helped me overcome my frustrations with the physical limitations by encouraging me to rediscover the joys of making music. She sent me tapes of the accompaniments to simple duets, so I could practice my part while hearing her play the accompaniments along with me on the tape. So even though Kendra is no longer in Montreal, her music remains with me, providing ongoing encouragement to keep up with my practice and providing a solid base for my new teacher to build on Kendra’s work. "
"Fantastic - very talented
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Absolutely beautiful! We have received fantastic feedback from our guests today on how lovely the atmosphere was with your talent.
Our vision for a cellist for today’s event was on point!"
