I recently hired Mariko to perform at my daughter's christening luncheon. Mariko was very professional. She followed up with me many times before the event and called when promised. She was also very responsive to my personal musical requests. Mariko also showed up on time at the event. I was extremely happy with Mariko's performance. Many of my guests commented on how great she was. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing beautiful classical music for their event.Oct 2, 2018Verified
Solo Musician Entertainment
My wife and I are extremely happy that we hired Mariko as the solo violinist at our Central Park, NY wedding on 11/16/2014. She is a super talented musician and a very friendly person. All of our interactions with her has been wonderful. Since my wedding was outdoors in Central Park, on a cold and windy day, Mariko was initially concerned that the weather may damage her equipment. But she quickly found a solution for us by offering to rent a violin so she can still play at the wedding. She showed up early to the ceremony location (before we even got there). We asked her to play "Canon in D" along with any songs that she feels would suit the occasion. Needless to say, all the songs she chose were romantic and sounded perfect for our wedding. My wife and I received many compliments from our guest about Mariko. We would definitely recommend Mariko to play at any special events.Dec 10, 2014Verified
Mariko is an incredible talent, and just as professional and nice. She helped me surprise my girlfriend for Valentine's Day with a private performance at our dinner. A week beforehand, I asked her if she could play a certain song, and although she had never played it before, she learned it and played it beautifully. Musically speaking, her technique and skill were remarkably impressive and I'm confident she could perform on stage alongside the best musicians in the world. Mariko brought my girlfriend to tears (of joy). I would highly recommend her and may even hire her again in the future.Feb 15, 2016

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My pricing depends on the following factors: -If I need to make an arrangement of a song for the specific event -the event location -If the customer requests a quartet/trio/duet -the duration of the event I am always open to negotiations of pricing!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I ask my customers to take me through what exactly it is that they want. Occasionally, they ask for my advice through my past experiences. The final product of the jobs I have been hired for were a mix of my suggestions and the customers.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Classically trained, I have been playing the violin for over 17 years. Currently, I am a senior at the Juilliard School, pursuing a degree in violin performance.
