I am a Classical Marimba Soloist

Recommended Posts

My name is Michael Charles Smith and I play solo classical marimba! I play every thing from Bach to Jazz, and from Ray Charles to Radiohead. I mostly pay special events, but my favorite audiences are seniors at assisted living communities! I have been playing at some assisted living communities in Portland Oregon and always get a wonderful response, but its been hard to get a hold of most activity directors unless I physically hunt them down and show them a video of my playing. I would love any advise on how to reach a greater number of activity directors to market my talents! Thanks for you help!

I am in FL so can't help you there!

For me sending me mail via the post office is one of the best way with your web site, cost of an hour, and a few referals would help. OH and if your playing anywhere close where I could come to see you.

You have to understanf our days are so busy that though we need your help it is hard to find a moment to stop and listen. It is easier to listen after hours.

Maybe offer a free show would help too!


Wish you could share how to tell someone that they sing flat and I am not interested! Have had performers call constantly and it is hard to say!
