Excellent to work with!

David was great! He worked with a girl I wanted to sing at the wedding but I also had their vocalist perform as well. Music sounded perfect.


Quickest and best communication. Very nice to work with and wonderful musicians. Highly recommend them!!


We hired Dave to play at our wedding ceremony. He did an amazing job, evening learning a new song, the Rudy theme song, which my groom really wanted to enter to. He was easy to work with from start to finish. There was a wide selection of music to chose from for all parts of our ceremony and even examples as well. I would highly recommend him for any event!


David was one of the easiest vendors for us to work with. It was a breeze to book him and he responds so quickly (so important for a stressed out bride!). You can tell he has been preforming for a long time and really enjoys what he does; our ceremony, cocktail hour and dinner were taken to the next level with the beautiful ambiance he provided. We were able to pick out the songs for the important parts of our ceremony and I left the rest of the music selections up to him. He put together a beautiful selection of music for our guests to enjoy before the ceremony started. He was efficient and prompt. He was a breeze to work with and I'm looking for an excuse to hire him again; you won't regret using him for your day!


Dave played at our wedding ceremony, along with his cellist and they were absolutely wonderful! Dave was so easy to work with leading up to our big day and the music sounded beautiful. I'm so happy we could have them play at our ceremony and would highly recommend them for any event!

Talented Musicians for Weddings!

The beautiful music of Dave helped to make our wedding day one to remember. His music is amazing and was such a wonderful addition to our ceremony. Dave played for our ceremony as well as our cocktail hour. We wanted to stay with traditional music, so we picked our songs based on his samples on his website and couldn’t have been more pleased. But Dave is willing to customize and learn new songs. For our ceremony, Dave also brought a cellist with him to play “A Thousand Years (Piano Guys)”. Perfect song for the Bridal Processional. The music was wonderful and everything went very smoothly. We had several guests comment on how nice it was. Both Dave and his wife (she was the vocalist for cocktail hour)are lovely, so easy to work with, and always had fast response times to any questions we had. His rates are super reasonable, too. We would recommend him as a pianist for weddings or any events where a nice soft ambiance is needed. Good job Dave!!Services: Piano Cello Duo (Wedding Music), Songbird vocal-piano Duo (music for cocktails and dinner) –

Infinite Number of Stars for his music!

Dave is the best of the best!!!! We could not be any happier than this!!! We received so many compliments!!!! He made our ceremony a fairy tale and he also was in our reception. He deserves infinity amount of stars!!!Services Wedding music - Cello/Piano and Piano for Cocktails

High Quality Music for our Party

Dave did a great job, even when he was under the weather. We needed him to play background music for a dessert reception for alumni - ages 28-98! We needed a variety of music that would allow people to talk and socialize, not too loud, but still high-quality. Dave did a great job, arrived on time, and was professional.   Services: Pianist - Solo Piano for a Party

Wow - An Amazing Performance!

Wow pretty much sums up Dave's performance for our wedding! We had him do the ceremony on piano and then a piano and cellist duo for cocktail hour and we could not have been more impressed! Everyone complimented their playing all night and he brought tears at the wedding ceremony! A definite must for any wedding!Services: Piano for Wedding Music, Cello and Piano for Cocktails

Such beautiful music for my wedding!

I am so very happy with the performance given by David! My husband and I choose to also add a vocalist and violinist along with him to provide wedding music for our ceremony and I can't explain how beautifully they all sounded together! They added that extra special touch to it all and I thank them very much for working with us! If your looking for some very talented musicians look no further!!Services: Ceremony with Piano, Violin and Vocalist

Fantastic Wedding Music

Fantastic performance... from the beautiful sounds to the impeccable timing and tone setting. We enjoyed every minute of our magical moment thanks to Dave's masterful melodies! Dave was extremely easy to work with and had a wide range of songs to select from making every part of our ceremony uniquely ours!Services: Wedding Music (solo Piano)

Piano Music Set the Tone for a Great Night!

David Becherer was recently the Pianist for a social event for our organization in St. Louis. He was extremely professional and did an absolutely wonderful job. Everyone was commenting about how talented he was! David really set the tone for a wonderful night!!Service: Solo Cocktail Piano

Amazing Ceremony Pianist!

I work with musicians frequently on many events and I have to say Dave was great! He was very easy to work with and his music was just what our event required. His attention to detail with the venue was refreshing, He kept the volume to an appropriate level at all times and played songs that were appropriate for the event …again refreshing as many musicians do not keep these elements in mind. I truly am happy with Dave’s professionalism and will continue to hire him for upcoming ceremonies, weddings and holiday parties to come at our venue!.Service: Wedding Music - Solo Pianist

I Enthusiastically Recommend this Pianist!

It is with the greatest enthusiasm that I recommend jazz pianist Dave Becherer. His command of the keyboard is that of a first class professional pianist and his musicality is of the highest class of artistry. I have hired him for a private Cocktail Party and heard him play a most varied repertoire and it seems clear to me that no piano music would give him any problems. He has my highest recommendation for a cocktail hour pianist.  Services: Music for Cocktails - Pianist

You Guys are Awesome!

We absolutely LOVED our ceremony music played by David and cellist, Jake Brookman. We really wanted a piano/cello duo and we searched and searched for one until we almost gave up… Then one night, we found them on the knot. I contacted him that night and he got right back to me! We wanted very specific songs and he made sure that was exactly what we got. He had an event in St Louis prior to ours but he made it to our ceremony in plenty of time to start the prelude music. He kept in touch well and even texted/emailed to keep me up to date on where he was when he traveled to our location. We were very pleased with everything.Our wedding was outside on a pretty windy day and they still made it happen… Even if it meant they held their music with their teeth. I have absolutely no regrets ! And if you’re wondering if it’s worth the extra money…. Let me just do you a favor and tell you, IT IS! I highly recommend you cutting a corner somewhere else! Thanks again for everything, David! You guys are AWESOME!Services: Piano/Cello Duo – Ceremony Music

Ceremony Piano – Best Pianist PERIOD!!

Dave Becherer was so amazing to work with! He was very professional and accommodating. He was able to take all of my input and help make the ceremony music so memorable. Dave even took the time to prepare a special arrangement to the popular “A Thousand Years” for me. It was the most dramatic moment of my whole ceremony!! He is so very talented and will go out of his way to please the customer. Quality musician and fantastic guy!Service: Ceremony Pianist 

Wonderful Ceremony Pianist

Dave was truly wonderful to work with. We made all of the arrangements from out of state. He quickly responded to every e-mail and offered great suggestions. The ceremony was held at the Japanese Garden at the Missouri Botanic Garden. The wedding music was a big part of making this a perfect day. I would highly recommend him as a pianist for his professionalism and reasonable prices.Service: Solo Piano for Ceremony Music

Ceremony Piano –Fantastic!

Dave was fantastic and extremely accommodating! He was in direct contact with me through the entire preparation and walked me through each step of what he would be doing for us. If there was a song that we particularly wanted or a different rendition of one he already had, he took the time to send us the confirmation of the song and then practiced it specifically for our wedding. On the day of, he made sure to introduce himself and confirm that everything was in order so that we had nothing to worry about. We could not be happier with our choice of Dave Becherer!Service: Solo Piano for Ceremony Music

Don't look any further for your music!

We found Dave online and we booked him for our ceremony and cocktail hour. We sent him all of the music we wanted played, some of which were not in his list, so the sheet music had to be ordered, but he played all of them beautifully. His skills as a pianist are amazing and I was happy with everything he played. He brought to life all of the wedding music we requested and we couldn't have been happier. He also helped us out and provided a microphone for us for the ceremony, which was great. If you're looking for beautiful music for your ceremony or event, look no further. He is definitely the real deal!Service: Wedding Ceremony Music and Cocktail Hour (piano)

Awesome music for wedding and cocktails!

Dave provided beautiful piano/cello ceremony music, as well as a wonderful bass and piano jazz duo during dinner for our son’s wedding. He was extremely responsive, patient and helpful in dealing with the many questions and issues involved in planning the music for the wedding. He attended our rehearsal and arrived early to set up for the ceremony; everything was organized and ready early for the ceremony. Dave is a very responsible person, as well as a highly skilled and versatile musician who can be trusted to provide excellent music for any event.Service: Piano Cello Duo (ceremony music) and jazz Piano Upright duo (music cocktails and dinner)

Dave was extremely professional, prompt with his response time, and his piano music sounded beautiful! I highly recommend him for someone who is looking for a special event pianist.Service: Wedding Music - Solo Piano

Awesome Wedding Music!

A Great Experience!

My wife and I had our wedding in Southern Illinois back in September and we were in need of a Pianist for an outdoor wedding. We reached out to Dave and he answered quickly with an offer. He shared with us his recordings and even helped us pick out music for different parts of the wedding. Communications were through email and were very professional and replies were fast. On the wedding day I would have never guessed that he has never been in the area. He showed up on time (early in fact!) to our wedding in the middle of the woods with everything that he needed. He just had us point to the site and he set himself up in the best location (out of the way, but still close enough). Dave started playing and it set the perfect mood for the wedding. He was such an amazing pianist (and several of our music major friends commented this to us later that night). He even improvised some fill in music when there were quiet parts during the wedding (like signing documents). He really added a lot to our wedding and we were thankful. At the end of the event, he quickly packed up, gave us a quick goodbye and was on his way. He was very profession and extremely helpful during all the planning and the wedding itself. If any of my friends get married and are in the market for a wedding pianist, I am going to give them Dave's contact information without any hesitation. I highly recommend booking with him

Dave performed during my wedding ceremony and was wonderful! He was quick to respond to my emails and made sure the timing would be perfect! Easy to work with and the perfect touch to my special day!

Review from Facebook #2

Thank you Dave for the beautiful and sentimental music. It was a pleasure to work with you. I greatly appreciate your talents (and customer service). I can't to see the video. What a memorable day! I will definitely recommend you to all my friend in the St. Louis area.

Brilliant Wedding Music

David and his wife, Kim, were amazing. Only one month before our ceremony I was in a bind. Our church's musical director unexpectedly backed out, and ceremony music was one small detail that I took on to help ease the burden on my stressed out fiance. I found David on the Knot, and went to his website to learn more about him. His website was the best I saw, he had comprehensive lists of the songs he has played, examples of musical selections from other weddings, and plenty of samples to listen to. He was obviously talented enough, and I was desperate. I sent a quick message asking for a price quote. He responded very quickly via email, and we are so lucky he was still available for our date. Communication was quick and seamless, and I felt a huge load off knowing we'd still have skilled musicians for our ceremony. It was easy to pay online, send him musical selections via email, and have a couple quick conversations. David came to our rehearsal to get a feel for our space, and he was also ready to roll with the punches when our church was being weird about using their piano: "Not a problem, I've got a keyboard and amp that sound a lot better than most church pianos." In the end, David ended up using the church's piano, and it sounded incredible. He's truly a virtuoso, and Kim shines as a soloist. Our guests marveled at the theme from Beauty and the Beast and Pride and Prejudice during the prelude to our ceremony. David and Kim were classy, fantastic, and truly impressive without shifting the focus of our ceremony to themselves. All of my interactions with David were highly professional and enjoyable, and I can't recommend he and Kim enough!

Great to work with!

Even though we never had a chance to meet in person, David was absolutely wonderful to work with. He was so flexible and responsive. The music for my wedding ceremony sounded wonderful!

Wonderful Pianist!

I had David play at our wedding ceremony and he sounded beautiful. Leading up to the day I chatted with David via email and he was very responsive and easy going. We picked our favorite songs for him to play and he did just that. We will definitely hire David again!

Very professional pianist!

hired Dave to play at my wedding in St. Louis. He offered a wide array of song selections and was willing to learn a new song or two for specific ceremony music that I wanted. I chose the Piano/Cello Duo and they sounded amazing- gave off a very elegant vibe. As the bride, I stayed busy and didn't get a chance to visit with Dave and sit still long enough to hear all of what they were playing, but every guest I've spoken to after returning home commented how beautiful they thought the music was and that they did a great job! Throughout the planning process, Dave was very accommodating- he replied quickly to any question or concern I had and offered advice and his opinion on my ideas and wants so to make our wedding experience the best it could be. I would highly recommend Dave's services for any event!


Outstanding and beautiful are two words I'd use to describe Wedding Music by Dave Becherer. We hired Dave and Jake to do a piano/cello duo for our wedding ceremony music. From the prelude to the recessional, every note was truly beautiful to hear during our ceremony. Our guests said they absolutely loved the music and it certainly made this bride cry as I walked down the aisle to it. Dave and Jake even let us hear the songs with them prior to our big day when we wanted to make sure we liked everything. They are very professional, kind, and talented musicians. We also loved how accommodating they were with every request we made. We highly recommend them to play the perfect soundtrack for your wedding ceremony!

Cello Piano - magnificent!

We had the piano/cello dynamic duo for our ceremony and they were absolutely wonderful. From the first moment I heard Dave's selection, I knew I wanted him for our wedding. He was very accommodating with all of our requests. We couldn't ask for a better musical experience!
