A sample cover letter for an musical entertainer such as a pianist, keyboardist or classical musician for a cruise ship position.You should modify this cover letter according to your experience and qualifications.
Dear Human Resources Officer,
I am Alex Roberts - a professional performer and pianist. I have a versatile repertoire which includes show tunes, swing, jazz, classical, free-form jazz, operatic and festive hits. I am very much interested to seek a six-month contract on your cruise ship as a pianist and musician entertainer.
I have previously worked as a department store pianist on a seasonal basis performing on special events during Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter holidays. My regular gigs include fine dining establishments and night spots such as the Cafe Bleu and the Razzmatazz Bistro.
I can improvise impromptu and play requests from patrons. I am also part of the local
symphony orchestra, playing piano accompaniment for musical celebrities for
public festivities, charity events, dinner galas, supported by the city hall.
I am a skilled entertainer as I can motivate a crowd to sing-along and dance to the music. I can do weddings, birthdays, baptisms, bar mitzvahs, anniversaries and corporate parties.
I have enclosed a copy of my demo and resume and would welcome the opportunity to sit with you for an interview. I would also be delighted to play some of my music if there any scheduled auditions in the coming week. You may reach me at 222-400-600 for any updates.
Thank you so much
