Soloists
Artists who are seeking management need to check with us first before sending any materials. We do occasionally entertain adding certain artists on to the roster. However, because this is a small agency and we pride ourselves on individual attention to each artist that is represented by us, we are only able to represent a finite number of artists. Please, refer to all the points below before considering to submit.

To assist you through the process, please keep in mind the following:
  • If you are currently under management and have made no move to sever your current management arrangements, we cannot speak with you. It would be unethical to do so.
  • If you are planning to leave your current management, we require that you send us a copy of that letter stating your plans before we can enter into a discussion with you.
  • Please call prior to sending anything in the mail. As a courtesy to you, we make most of our outgoing calls during the morning and early afternoon hours. If possible, please call late in the day when there will be more time to speak.
  • The process of beginning a new relationship may take several weeks before coming to the conclusion that that relationship will work (or not). It is important that you allow the proper amount of time for the relationship to develop. Then and only then will we both know if it is time to move forward. (Please refer to Company Philosophy for some general thoughts about representing artists and our process.)
  • It is important that the materials that you have developed for yourself accurately reflect where you are in your career at the present time. Be sure that résumés are in reverse, chronological order and include all dates of engagements and performances. This is for all artists, in all disciplines. If you are contacting us from outside the U. S., please be aware that your materials need to be presented in this way. Long, narrative biographies should not be included. Where you have studied and with whom, although important to your development as an artist, carries little weight in the evaluation process.
  • Instrumentalists will need to have performed professionally with recognized conductors and orchestras.
  • If you have been recorded commercially, include the title of the CD, the label and its catalog number
  • Live performance recordings will be accepted provided the sound is good. This means that inadequate sound from YouTube postings will not gain any attention.
  • Electronic submissions will be accepted provided that all of the above data is included and in the correct format.
  • The best time of year for AMS to consider your submission is prior to September of each calendar year and before the booking process begins for the following season.
Hopefully, these points will have assisted you in making the best choices prior to your contacting Arts Management Services.
