Care & residential homes

During a 1 hour recital I can play a combination of classical, jazz, and songs from the shows, and at Christmas I can also perform carols and festive songs.  You are welcome to choose songs from either my Full Song List or my usual 1 hour Care Home Set List, but you are welcome to talk to me about your song choices beforehand.  I provide all my own gear including a stage piano.  

I am currently the resident pianist at Sketty House, as well as regular performances/rebookings at Bloomfield Care Home in Swansea.  Based in Tonteg, Pontypridd, I am a working professional musician and teacher, fully DBS checked and have Public Liability Insurance

Music is a great form of therapy, not only bringing enjoyment to the listener, but also often bringing back happy memories.

A small selcection of recordings of the music I can perform is at the bottom of the page.

Previous Recitals at South Wales Care Homes

See below for comments from some of the Care homes we have visited in the past.

"Dan Phelps has attended our home on two occassions to entertain the residents, and I can highly recommend Dan as a great pianist and good value for money.
the residents here greatly enjoyed his performance and love to sing along.
Dan has also composed some lovely classical pieces which are of a very high standard and a joy to listen to.
I can highly reccommend Dan to visit a care home, he has a very gentle way with the residents which they respond to, and he does his best to make a  special evening"

Joanne Gillison, Activity Coordinator, Jah Jireh Care Home

"Have had you up with us playing the piano a couple of times now.  The residents thoroughly enjoyed each visit. They say that music is soothing for the soul.  We have many residents with many varying needs, and each time you have played for us it has a massive response with the residents.  All staff who work in the evening after a show say that the residents are really calmed.  We have nothing but positives to say about you and your piano playing! Big Big Thanks!"

Martin Rees, Ty-Ross Nursing Home, Treherbert.


"Dan has visited our home on two occasions and performed a wide variety of music to suit many musical tastes.   He provided us with song sheets so that people could join in if they wanted to.    Residents & staff enjoyed singing along and thoroughly enjoyed the performance.  
Dan is very punctual and reliable which is extremely important as residents look forward to the performances.  I would recommend Dan as a performer.   He interacts well with our resident and has a very gentle & calming manner.   His performances also offer very good value for money"

Margaret Davidson, Manager, Ty Bargoed Newydd


"Dan Phelps has visited our home on two separate occasions and has played a variety of different music, all of which has been appropriate for the clients I work with…Dan caters his music for everyone and he has a very endearing nature.  He relates very well to the varying differences of my clients.  He was enjoyed by all who came to his recitals.  I will definitely be inviting Dan back to Ty Eirin."

Jennifer Yates, Ty Eirin Care Home


"I am writing on behalf of our family of residents at Rhondda Care Home, to thank you for giving your time to entertain us all here at the home.  I am sure you know research has shown that music is so fundamental in all our lives, especially later in life.  It is so important for the residents to listen to music, and we are so grateful to you.  Both residents and visitors enjoyed the piano music you played, and were thoroughly entertained.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank you again and would be happy to recommend you to other homes, and wish you all the best with your musical career"

Dave Harris, Rhondda Care Home
