Keyboard Connection was the concept of pianist Charlotte Tomlinson. She recognised the difficulty many people have finding an accompanist and the lack of provision in the music profession for a network that fulfils this gap.

She approached Richard Smith, Managing Director of The Musicians Answering Service (MAS), the UK's leading diary service for orchestral and session musicians. Keyboard Connection was launched in 1999 as a self-contained part of MAS specialising in keyboard players of all genres, combining the reputation built by MAS within the classical music business for professionalism and reliability, with the specialist knowledge of a successful freelance pianist.

Charlotte continues her busy playing career whilst ensuring that all our clienst are of the very high standard expected from our service. With 40 years experience of working in classical music, the systems and working practices at MAS ensure a consistently high level of support, both to musicians and fixers.
