Hi, My husband has played vibes for 40 years, particularly jazz and Latin jazz. Can you give me info on your workshop? We live in Orange County New York but would travel.
I am a vibrpahonist from SF, visiting here in NY until next Sunday 1/15. I am a student of the California Jazz Conservatory in Berkeley, CA, and I study privately with Tony Miceli. I was wondering if you knew of any place that I could practice vibes at in the city? Does NY Jazz workshop or any other institution offer practice rooms to rent to students? Any help or pointers would be greatly appreciated. Thank you,- Dan

Thank you so much
Did you write the song Glass Half Full from the Musical "Fame Becomes Me"?
If so, can I buy the sheet music for that song? Does it come in any other keys?
I wanted to sing it for my amateur recital in June and I would need to get a copy for the accompanist. I purchased the song itself from iTunes, but couldn't find any links online to buying the sheet music. Thanks so much! Yael

Hello Mr Sherman,
We was talking on Facebook few months ago, I would like take lessons with you. We talk about lessons on Skype but I need refresh my english...
I will be in NY at the end of December ( from 22th to 1th ) and for me it will be a dream take some lessons with you. My idea is to spend the whole next Jully in NY and take private lessons with you and to take a couple of combos at New York Workshop. From December to Jully we can take lessons on Skype ( I hope improve my english ) and I could go to NY one week in between ( march or april ). Looking forward for to know your opinion and advices about that.
Sorry for this long letter and thank you very much for your time.
Hey Mark: I met you at Smalls. I'm a vibes player from the chicago area. I see you are playing at Smalls in a few weeks. Are you using their vibes? If so, I might be able to sit in with the next group. I've been having a hard time sitting in there because the vibes are packed up. Let me know, at any rate, I'll stop in to hear again.
I have heard you on vibraphone on you tube, including your Moon River. You sound terrific. Last time I saw you was on that New York Pops Florida tour. My son Zach was a baby. Now he is 21. He got a Masters in trumpet from Manhattan School of Music and is currently in the Doctoral program at Stony Brook. My son Nathaniel is 16. He is a serious French horn player and was accepted into the National Symphony. Fellowship program for this season. He is also quite a good jazz pianist. I am currently Executive Director of the Chesapeake Orchestra. My husband Jeff Silberschlag is the Music Director. We are also on the faculty at St. Mary's College of Maryland.
All the best,
Dear Sir or Madam,

I had a lesson with you in Sydney recently and have just paid for a follow up one (paypal). I was hoping for a time later this week. Your late afternoon /early evening is our morning (we are 14 hours ahead). Anyway, depending on your schedule, this week would be good for me as I go away on Sunday for 3 weeks.
all the best, Jeremy Cook
Hey Mark: good hearing you at Smalls a few nights ago. I hope to sitting in there tonight. If you're ever back in the midwest, let me know.

Hi Mark, my name is Massimo and I am studying At City College. I am a BFA in Jazz and I study with Carl Allen. I had the opportunity of renting a vibraphone and I would like to have some lessons with you so I can practice and learn the right stuff. I would love to become a little proficient so I can get the best out of the harmony and improvisation classes I am taking now... And I fell in love with the vibraphone!
Hi Mark, thanks for the play, I loved your musicality, swing and sound.
The less said about the singer, and the weirdness of the gigs in general the better.
Anyway, I hope we get another opportunity someday under more auspicious circumstances.
Here is my band that I was talking about, Frock, a vibraphone/accordion/piano/guitar frontline.

Thanks so much. Hope all is well.
My name is Steve Bohach I found you by finding the New York jazz workshop site. My son is a vibe jazz studies major at Marshall University in Huntington West Virginia. He has just begun his junior year. We chose Marshall because it has a special program to assist students with learning disabilities and it offered a degree in jazz studies. The special program is working well 3.4 GPA. The problem is that there is no vibes teacher and he is frustrated and struggling with trying to teach himself voicings. He is working with a mallet instructor that is classically trained so at least he has that. I saw that you have Skype lessons. I was wondering if he could meet you in New York in December or January during break. I was thinking perhaps you could evaluate where he is and give an in person lesson, then we could do Skype lessons and try to get you two together in person again in spring or summer. What would you suggest and how much would something like that cost

I just ordered a couple of your CD from the website. I will pay extra for shipping since you might not be able to send to Australia for the shipping charged. Also, I would like to get "THEM" wjen you have it.
Could email me a couple tips on soloing over "All the Things you Are" in A-flat? Just a couple insights would be appreciated.
Also, I just saw the wonderful blogs you've posted. I read several, and then gave everyone an excellent rating. Ted Piltzecker is coming out in January, but I don't know how he is funding it. All the schools are out then, so there won't be as much master class opportunity. A young Friedman protege was here last week, an Italian guy Giovanni Perin. Really wish there was more of a way I could support your desire to get to Australia.
We still on for 10:15am tomorrow, or do you think it will be too wet?
Also, send me your email!
Hello, Mark ~
My name is Mimi Gina. We met years ago and I came to one of your gigs at Iridium in New York City. At that time, I had just purchased a vibraphone from one of Tommy Mattioli's students and we spoke briefly about it. Many thanks for the time you took with guidance that night.
Unfortunately, I have to sell the vibraphone because of a space situation. I mentioned the vibes being for sale to Maximo Rodriguez, the bass player, recently and he suggested I contact you. The vibes are in mint condition, having not been out of my apt. (smokeless) since I bought them and rarely gigged on by Tommy's student before me. Here is a link showing them - they are the gold Musser Pro M48 vibraphone in Gary Burton's travel cases.
I thank you for keeping me in mind if you are interested or know of anyone who might be. I live mid-town, across the street from the Beacon Theatre & can show them anytime.
I wish you much continuing success with all your artistic pursuits.
Hi Mark! My name is Rodrigo, I am vibraphonist. I'm from Uruguay. Last summer I took a course with Tim Horner, he told me about you. I've heard your work and I really like. In January next year will go to New York. I wonder if you give private lessons vibraphone. Regards!
Hey, not sure if you remember. This is Nick Apivor,vibes player from Vancouver Canada. I provided the set of vibes for you a few years ago when you played the Jazz Cellar here. Anyway, I'm going to be in NY (for the 1st time) Aug 21 to 27. Wondered if you're going to be around. Would be great to get a lesson. Hope all's well. Thx. Nick
Please put my name on your list and notify me when you are going to have a concert in San Francsico, CA. Thank You.
where can I find a beginers teacher for the vibraphone?
Ps: Brooklyn Ny
I wanted to ask a quick question: I saw you on the roster of Jazzmedia & More. I was wondering, what is your experience with them, would you recommend signing a two year contract?
Thanks a lot,
Just happened upon your site searchin for somone. Glad I did. Love your playing but I need your help if you can. I'm trying to find a South Korean Saxophonist who did a sample vdeo of the Laura Tenor Sax on youtube. I'd like to ask him some questions. Thanks Vince
Hi Mark, not sure about lesson on saturday, I have no car right now and will probably go out to Long Island if trains are running, tree landed on my parents house putting 2 holes on the roof, I was ok here in sunset park, how are you in Riverdale? my school's right off of Cropsey Ave. by the water and the basement flooded.... anyway, I have no cell service, e-mail is only way to communicate.... be well, be safe!

I am interested in taking some lessons with you. i am currently taking the Blues to Standards workshop with Tim Price- New York Jazz Workshop. I am a classical percussionist and composer looking to expand my playing, improve my ear and develop as a 'jazz' player. I come from a very experimental, avant-garde music background- more about sonorites, timbre... My ear was never developed in the tradition of tonality- I played mostly non-pitched percussion and when I played pitcched percussion it was always very technical, dissonant music. I look forward to hearing from you. 917-647-6563, JoAnne Maffia
On Monday, January 28th we have planned a benefit concert, "40 Years of Jazz Fame" honoring Justin DiCioccio who created the jazz program at the High School of Music & Art (now LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts). We would be honored if you would join us for the evening and perform. The program will feature standard jazz classics and there will be a talk down rehearsal and dinner prior to the concert. We are putting together 2 groups for the concert and the finale will feature everyone.
As one of our notable alumni, your participation would make the event very special. Justin also asked that we invite you and Gabriel Kosakoff (a member of the A&F Board) is working with us on planning the event.
Alumni & Friend's mission is to provide scholarships, grants, awards and other assistance to students and the school that enhance the art education beyond traditional funding from the Department of Education and ensure that future generations receive the same high quality arts education that we did. Last year, A&F gave over $300,000 and provided $150,000 of equipment to the school and it's students. In light of budget cuts and tough economic times A&F's support is event more critical than ever, and we are hoping this event will provide additional support to the school.
We hope you can join us to honor Justin. Feel free to call me if you have any questions.
Alumni & Friends of LaGuardia High School
I am to interview Khan Jamal for Cadence Magazine and was hoping you had an interesting question to ask him and I would credit it to you. I like to end my interview with special questions.
HI Mark. Looking for some advice on choosing a Yamaha vibraphone. Considing the 2700 and 3710 series. Will probably be a living room player, with some gigging.
Hey, Mark --
Looks like you\'re in Atlanta today. Don\'t know when you\'ll see this.
Thanks a lot for sending the CD. It\'s another great capture of the music and the band\'s live performance energy. I certainly enjoyed my first listening.
I told my friend in Switzerland about it, reviewer Juerg Sommer.
I forget, did I promise to pay you for this, or is it complimentary? Either way sounds good to me.
Keep the beautiful music coming. It\'s the only thing keeping insanity away!
Mark I saw you play smalls on Sunday and loved it. I a m a new musicians in Maryanne sat class on fender bass. I loved you drumming and heard your playing on YouTube. Very inspirational. I love Percy Heath. And transcribing a lot of his lines with bags in mjq.
Any way love you sound and wanted to let you know

Hi Mark. My brother raised me on crazy music and one of the albums we had the most fun with was Fulcrum Point. My bro went to SUNY Old Westbury and studied under Woody. My favorite song was Goofy. This was because the time on that was sick. My brother taught me how to follow it but I couldn't tell you what it was. He's the musician, I am the math head. I have to have this album. I am pretty broke so if I could just get the song , I'll find a way to get the album later. Even if you can't help, thanx... you were a pleasure to listen to. Big part of my upbringing. Chris Wilson

Hi, I was at the first set last night at the Kitano hotel.
Just wanted to say how much I really enjoyed the set. It was fantastic and that club provides a great intimate setting.
I was wondering about your workshops.
My wife and I just moved from LA to NY for work.
I play sax semi-professionally and would like to participate.
How would I find out more?
Thanks again for a great evening.
found a album called \"soundworks\" ,still sealed from 1980.
artist Tom Chapin, Charles Potter, Mark Sherman and Thad Wheeler. Recorded at The Physical World Cambridge Mass.
Physical Records PR32-013. Do you have any information about this LP?
Mark - Do you have any workshops coming up in the Chicagoland area?
Hi Mark - Victor Lagamma suggested I call you to talk about the possibility of some lessons for my son, Andreas. He plays piano, and is itching to explore the world beyond classical (he's 15). He's a good kid, very open, and loves music.
Can we talk to figure out possible next steps? Many thanks,
Hi Mr. Sherman. How are you??? Been a fan of your music since growing up in the Philippines. Changes In My Life was very popular there. I was wondering if this album will be re-issue in the future. My cassette tape of that album finally gave up on me and a digital copy would be nice...Even on iTunes.
This is Gregory you came at Piccola cucina (soho Nyc) I'm gonna check the places you told me. If you get to Nyc before beggining of April I come to see you playing.
See you gregory

Hi, Mark --
I took a vibraphone lesson with you a few years ago. I've just purchased a used Jenco vibes (probably from the '50's). Do you have any advice on how to clean it? -- Aluminum polish? A buffing wheel? Do I need to worry about altering the bars or throwing them out of tune in cleaning them?
I'd appreciate any advice you might have, and I'll look forward to seeing you again soon for another lesson.
I understand you may not have time to reply to this but i was wondering if you could tell me anywere i could Buy the CD version of your song "Changes in my Life" or even the album. It would be great if you could iv tried everywere and still no luck.
Hope to hear from you soon Mr. Sherman have a nice Day.
P.S my mum loves this song and thats why i want to buy it
Hi Mark. I'm writing to inquire on whether you will be performing at the Watercolor Cafe in Larchmont, NY with Victor LaGamma on Wednesday, May 19th. I saw the gig listed on Watercolor's schedule, but I did not see it on your itinerary. Please confirm. Thanks!

I don\\\'t know if you remember me, but I met you at Cheltenham High School in Wyncote, Pa back in 1974 or so. I went with you to New York a couple of times, and you introduced me to the musci of some jazz musicians like Art Blakey and Elvin Jones. I enjoyed hanging out with you. How are you doing? I am enjoying family life and I actually play accoustic guitar and sing lots of standards. I would love to hear from you and see if you do remember me.

I love your playing style and I was wondering if you be interested in giving me an audition to with your group - I play jazz guitar as well as dobro & steel guitar and laptop steel - I have samples at the website enclosed - http://earnestwoodall.com/Guitar/musicsamples.html
My Mom mentioned a while ago that you ran into her and that I should contact you. Unfortunately, she lost your card, and it slipped my mind until today in class when my professor Scott Reeves mentioned that you said hi. Anyway, I just thought I'd send you an email.
There are many of your fans here in the midwest. When are you coming out to Indianapolis so we can enjoy the full Mark Sherman experience?
Even Cal Tjader made an appearence many moons ago!
My name is Jason Raso. I am a musician (bassist) from Ontario, Canada. I am currrently working on my new CD. This is my seventh release, but my first "real" jazz album. I am very excited about this new project.
I have 3 songs that I would love to have vibes on. I was wondering if there was anyway I could hire you to play on this project. I realize this a long shot, but I figured "why not shoot for the best?". I would be very honoured if you would even give these tracks a listen. I would also totally understand if you decided not to.
If this is a possiblilty, I would have my engineer send you the tracks and you could overdub your tracks at your studio.
You can hear some of my work at www.myspace.com/jasonrasotrio
Thank you very much for your time.

I am a photographer from denver, In 2006 I was the primary photographer at the denver jazz fest and per your request I was nice enough to send a disc of all the images from that event to you. Since then many of these images have been used on your site and as promotional shots that have been published on other site and possibly print sources too. I don't normaly work for free and all I would ask is for credit of my work. It's hard for me to use clips from your site or from other sites that have published my work without credit. Normally I charge a minimum of $200 and I would likely charge more for an event like the jazz fest. I sent you the photo's to benifit us both so I would appreciate it if in the future you could give me credit for my work .

Hey Mark, I caught your shows saturday @ Tula's in Seattle. I dug em. I'm a piano student and I would like to study vibes. Can you recommend a book to study?
Thanks, Craig Mar Chun
It was great watching you blow the doors off of the Fireside Lounge at the Hyatt in Monterey this weekend. (Jan 23,24,25) You were sensative on the ballads---and you and Marshal Otwell (piano) just ripped the place apart on the up-tempo pieces. Looking forward to seeing you play with Charlie Schumake in Cambria CA on April 19th.
All The Best,

I remember you from Sam Ash where I worked with Paul Rice. Awesome playing.....
I tried to access Paul's website with no luck, I would love to say hello to him if you could forward this to him that would be great.
Keep up the great music.
My bestfriend is a huge fan of yours. I was wondering what dates you are playing at Zuppa, in order to make a reservation there for his birthday gift. Thank you very much.

Hi my name is Sal Calfa and I produce an Internet Radio Show Called Le Jazz Affair. I played Your Music \"Hardship\" on my Sun Nov 09 2008 Show#308. Here is the link in case you are interested:
I'm sorry I don't have your your email but I wanted to thank you and your wife for the wonderfull dinner and hospitality you showed us election night. I hope that some
day we can reciprocate.
Thank you for stopping by. I just completed the grant proposal I planned on submitting to the principals for signing.
However, I just received this message below from Max's mom. Max is my 1st chair trumpet player and is quite a good musician. I am deeply concerned about his strong feelings regarding what occurred during rehearsal last night and will make a point of speaking to his mom personally today Although this project seemed to suit our needs very nicely, I wonder if the other students feel the same as I do. They are, needless to say, the reason I love my job here at Haldane and the ones who most clearly determine my ultimate decisions and direction.
Please allow me the time to make more inquiries and seek more advice from my supervisors before we continue with this venture.

Hi Mrs. Contini,
I am really concerned about Max and this evening's Jazz band class.
He doesn't tell me a whole lot about school these days but he sure
had a lot to say tonight during the ride home. He is completely
humiliated because of what this new person helping out tonight had to
say about his guitar playing. Max also feels badly about how this
person treated his friend Stefano and this person's overall criticism
of the class.
Who is this person and why is he trying to discourage my son? Max is
passionate about music and I hope he always will be. A few more
sessions like this and I'm not so sure.
When you have a moment, would you just fill me in on what to expect
in the coming weeks. Will this man be there every week?
Thank you for your time.
Maureen (Max's mom)
Last week, it was great to meet you again in Peekskill after so many years. I can see your itinerary listed and if I can make it on those nights I will be happy to do so. All the best, Joe

HI MARK. I'M OK DURING THE DAY FOR THE 19th. I HAVE A GIG AT 7PM
I was the Tympanist with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, when you played with us in New York, around 1982. It was great to see you in the AFM mag,. and am glad you're doing well. I still remember your vibes hooked up to "new" electronics, and blowing me away...
I'm teaching in Toronto, now.
Keep on doin' it, man!\
Meant to tell you that your Web site won't load in my FireFox browser.
Don't know if we've ever met, but I read the article about you in the International Musician. What caught my attention was your connection to Elvin. I'm about to release my first album that features Elvin, Don Alias and the NDR BigBand. You can see some info at:
Well, I hope to run into you one of these days.
Been fanatical about jazz for nearly sixty years. Love it when I hear someone new and special in the jazz world. Sorry to say I'd never heard of you until someone said pick up this guys latest album "Live at the Bird's Eye". Well I'm listening to it for the third time and I'm absolutely knocked out. Fabulous stuff. The whole band is superb. I will be spreading the word and will mention this album on the jazz website I run. Will be aquiring all your previous albums.
Thank you for some great music.
All the best

I met you in Columbia Maryland at the Jazz Fest - 2008 Claude Ligon House of Jazz and bought your The Birds Eye CD. I must say it is outstanding!! I listen to it in my car all the time. Not only is the music great the audio engineering is excellent. I have an extensive studio myself with four Bose 901s, two OHM Fs and two Yamaha monitors all with their own 400watt amps. So I can listen you LIVE anytme I want. I am an electrical engineer and wannabe musician. Check out my website www.franklincellars.com. Send me an email and I will send you a bottle of wine that is as good as your music!
Thanks again for a great perfromance in Columbia, MD!

Great website dude............
miss the old days......we had fun
Saw your show last Saturday in Vancouver, BC at the Jazz Cellar Cafe. It was fabulous!
Bought your live in Basel CD and loving it, but unfortunately some of the songs, especially most of the 2nd CD, skip through the songs and won't play.
Any chance I can return it to you and get a new one that works properly?
THanks, Brigitte Rigby

HI Mark, Long time........... Great tune dedicated to Kenny Kirkland on your website! Keep wailin'
I am a student major in percussion in Taiwan.
I really like your excellent performance and music.
I hope I could have the chance to learn with you.
If I plan to go abroad to learn jazz vibraphone with you,which school should I choose?
Thank you for your help..
Mark. Hope your HAIRPSRAY gig went well...just a quick note. Still working on confirming actors. Acoustic piano guy is confirmed, and he has a drummer (and possibly bass) player that he's worked with a lot and would like to use him. I'll find out names for you---but I think it's a good idea if they have a relationship will make the their working together better. My big Tony award winners are probably not going to be able to do it---so I'm working on second choices. Also I don't know if you know Doug Romoff--he owns Harmony543 (I believe that's the right name) Studios on tenth and 43rd. My brother knows him and is going to look at the space--it looks AMAZING but will probably be way out of our price range. We'll see what he has to say. But I think come Tuesday latest, we should try to book the space and lock that in. I'll touch base with you on Monday. Hope all is well. Bob
Hey, love your site and your music. I noticed "Family First" has two "i"s on the splash page.
Hello, i am from the Philippines where Mark Sherman's music is specially popular. The song "changes in my life" is still being play to this date on some mellow radio station. My question is will the album " a new balance" be available on CD. My cassette tape is starting to worn out and i don't know where to get a spare. It would be nice if it is available on CD. Please help...
Hey Mark. Cory here. I hope all is well. Just wanting to know if you could make yourself available for an interview with me on my radio show on Monday September 24th at 11:15 AM Pacific Standard time.
Let me know asap. Thanks.
Yo, I am the website designer for Iridium Jazz Club. Was updating the page and looking for a link to yours came across your site.
Just wanted to let you know that you're music is awesome!!
Please put me in your mailing list and let me know when you perform
Are you available for a gig on Thursday (6/28) from 6PM to 9PM in Manhattan? The pay is $250

Mr Sherman the memory of your concert to Salerno - Italy (03/06/07) still gives emotions to me. I have listened your CD One step closer and find it fantastic. Beyond the great technique there are all moods inside.Now I must listen "family first" and then I write you. The vibraphone is a wonderful instrument. Iam 17 years old and in summer I listen many jazz festivals with my father I hope to meet you there.
Hi Mark! I was wondering why I didn't get your message - then Phil emailed me and told me you left it on his machine. I guess we're a futuristic family with 2 machines! My number is (718) 543-5524. It was a good coincidence that I saw you today! Thanks for saying nice things about that recording... I'm listening to your clips right now on your site and they are fantastic. Okay, speak soon! :-) sarah

I was wondering if you could send us 2 cd's for promotion and airplay? 247 has received nearly a half of million web-site hits in the last few months, and is broadcasting Jazz through the worldwide web.
We also interview artists played at 247, and I could send out some interview questions if you are interested.
Would love to hear from you, and wish you continued success.

I'm not sure if you remember me from long ago...I'm Peggy's granddaughter, Holly. I remember how much my grandmother loved your playing (me, too!). I wanted to congratulate you on your new CD and your wonderful website. Hope all is well with you and that your CD is a big success! Best regards, Holly Foster-Wells
Great concert yesterdey night at alexanderplatz.
Thanks a lot for the music, fantastic group.
I hope to hear you aother time.
Mark: Some time ago, I got your name from a friend at Sony Music which I've represented for many years. I will be retiring from practicing law at the end of this year and one of the things on my "to do" list is to learn how to play the vibes. When you get a minute, I'd like to talk to you about this. No urgency since it's not happening until the end of the year, although I could start sooner. Looking forward to talking to you. Bob
