Rates and pricing vary based on services, location, and other event planning details.


Most people will lead with the question "what are your rates"? There's a little more to performing than that.  In fact Tanner Palmer focuses on services and quality. He does not focus on having the cheapest rates.


When people are price driven, they will only see the price. When people are quality driven, they will focus on the value of services and musical talent.


Please know your live piano music budget before hand based on your research. Your budget should be realistic. This budget for should not be what's left over from the overall wedding budget after all other vendors have been hired and should never be arbitrary. If you have no idea of what your budget should be, Tanner will guide you but you have to communicate your need for help. 

Tanner's rates are unique to each individual event. There are no set cookie cutter prices. One would hardly go into a car dealership and ask "how much for a car"? Well, the price varies based on what the customer wants. Offering couture pricing enables Tanner to offer couture services.

After all the details about your event are openly discussed with Tanner, Tanner will create an agreeable rate specific to the needs, expectations and requirements of your event. After Tanner's services are booked, any additional or new terms, requirements, alterations to the original agreement may constitute an alteration in price of services even if the alterations or new requirements, etc.,  were unforeseeable. This is why openly discussing all event details before booking is vital. 

What other factors contribute to the price of services?

  • Round-trip travel distance


  • Availability

  • Whether or not Tanner is required to bring his digital piano and sound equipment (which takes time to set up and take down)

  • Learning new and/or obscure music

  • Last minute bookings, total overall time Tanner will spend on your event on the day-of, from the moment he leaves his door to the time he returns.

  • Whether or not Tanner is required to perform ambient music or a specific set song list which applies to only wedding ceremonies.


Rates truly reflect all details of each individual event. 

There are no price tricks or misleading sales tactics to Tanner Palmer's rates and services. In fact the entire process of generating prices is as transparent as propriety allows.

All quotes and bookings are made through a third party booking website. This  booking site also offers event protections and quality guarantees to Tanner's clients by way of terms, agreements and liaise in the event of any sort of dispute. Due to the legal benefits of using this specific booking site, if a potential client declines to book through the  aforementioned booking site, Tanner may decline the opportunity to perform for the event. A formal written and executed agreement is required for every performance. 

All price quotes are time sensitive in an effort to make dates and times available to other events.
