Most musicians have a clear idea of what the song should sound like and can hear every note and instrument in their minds. And even though you already have a good concept of the music you want to make, it might become a challenge when you want to include a piano piece that neither you nor your band members can perform. This is where session musicians come into play.
Session musicians are freelance musicians who are hired on a temporary basis to compose and play a few parts of a song. For example, session pianists can add piano tracks to song recordings that would not be possible to complete without their skills. These musicians provide a low-cost and temporary solution for getting the instrumentation you want on your song recordings.
Many bands and songwriters hire session musicians to add a piano track to their song because they realize how crucial it is to get it right. The pianists and keyboard players on the list below are some of the best session musicians you can hire. A few of them have studied at some of the world’s most prestigious music schools and have contributed to a number of major-label albums.
