The Musician’s Answering Service was founded in 1976 by Richard Smith and was the first diary service to cater to both the orchestral and session world. As a busy freelance oboist he recognised the difficulties musicians had trying to balance their playing commitments whilst ensuring they were available when fixers called. Thirty five years later and now supporting over 1000 clients, MAS has established a reputation within the classical music business for professionalism and reliability.
A diary service is like a PA handling all your professional enquiries; ensuring that you do not lose out on work because you are not immediately contactable and taking care of all the necessary communication between yourself and the orchestras who book you, giving you the time to concentrate on playing. In today’s competitive freelance world a diary service is an indispensable tool for the successful musician. Read on..
