Find an Accompanist at - The easiest way to find an accompanist

This new website provides a valuable service in supplying information about accompanists based on location.

The site then loads a list of registered accompanists closest to your area. It already supports location searches in 32 different countries so far!

The site was started by two freelance musicians from the Royal Academy of Music in London. There is also a discussion forum where musicians and other users can interact and discuss pertinent topics.
