Rachel Petersen on SoundBetter

I am a British pianist with over 20 years playing experience on the both the piano and keyboards. I can record any style of music that you need on the piano or keys, including modern pop, funk, hip-hop, rock and jazz.I have worked with major labels such as Sony, Universal and EMI and successful Record Producers such as Aubrey Whitfield.

Hire me to record your next piano or keys track! I have a vast amount of experience in music and can record a stunning piano or keys part for you that will match your vision. As well as having extensive playing and recording experience, I am proficient at recording and can offer a recording that is of the highest production standards. I work in Logic Pro X and use a wide range of industry standard plugins and software to make my piano and keys recordings sound like the recordings you hear in the charts or on radio.

I record most of my piano parts using midi, meaning that I can provide you with the midi data if you need it so you can make any changes to the piano or keys parts. I record using weighted keys and a pedal for an authentic piano sound.

I am also a professional arranger for both strings and brass parts. I have years of experience in this and can get your next arrangement sounding the best it can me. Simply message me and tell me all about your composition!

I offer two free revisions with each project and then charge a small fee of £20 per revision round after that. Average turnaround for piano and keys is generally 2-3 days depending on what is required + my schedule

If you have any questions simply hire me and I will get back to you in 24 hours.

  1. Review by Aubrey Whitfield

    Wow! Rachel is by far THE best pianist I have ever worked with. She was able to take some basic chords and turn my track into a masterpiece. A brilliant sounding piano by a very talented and advanced player. She was a joy to work with from start to finish. Very quick, very friendly. Will definitely work with her again!

    Another project completed with Rachel! She is a brilliant pianist, probably one of the best I've ever come across. She has a diverse range of styles that she can play in, and did the most amazing string arrangement for her track which I thought was from a real orchestra! She is a great collaborator, musician and composer. I hope to work with her again soon!

  4. Review by Aubrey Whitfield

    Rachel is simply fantastic! What a pianist! She has made my productions come alive with her dynamic playing style. She is really brilliant to work with as well, so accommodating and warm. The best session pianist and keyboardist I've ever worked with by a mile. Thanks Rachel!

    WOW! Rachel surpassed my expectations. She is the best session pianist/keyboardist I have ever come across (and I've worked with quite a few!) She works fast and efficiently and the quality of her piano work really is world class. You will not find a better session pianist. Very easy to work with and approachable and friendly. Highly recommended.

    What an amazing pianist!!! She played in one of my tracks and I was mesmerised at how great she did! She did the most unique sounding, moving piano I have ever heard. She understood perfectly what I needed for my track!! Super recommended!!

  7. Review by Mayah Thomas

    Rachel is such an amazing talent! She's so much fun to work with, I gave her a brief description for what I wanted and she brought my song to life. She puts a lot of love into working with artists. You won't regret hiring her to work on your project!

  8. Review by Leon Giudice

    Rachel is an incredible pianist! She took my basic song melody and created a totally beautiful piano with it. She has made my song sound like a hit! I am so happy! Rachel has been so easy to work with as well. She is so friendly and quick to respond. I can't recommend Rachel enough!
