-LIVE PERFORMER & MUSIC EDUCATOR-

Martin Shotwell is an American Music Composer, Singer Songwriter, Musician, Entertainer and Music Educator who's musical stylings stem from the culmination of his childhood influences ranging from old time gospel and blues, folk, and classic rock fused together with modern pop, reggie, punk, and alternative nuances.

Every show has been consistently described as truly "passionate performances," as Martin seems to thrive on the vibe of his audiences and enjoys interacting both individually as well as collectively through his uniquely crafted renditions of cover tunes of various musical genres.

DJ's are perfect for dancing but, there's nothing more intimate than a LIVE PERFORMANCE from an acoustic-electric guitarist and vocalist who's raw & versatile synergy has captivated audiences of all ages for many occasions!!

As a Music Educator, Martin teaches students of all ages Beginner to Intermediate Guitar and Ukulele. Students learn the parts of the instrument, an introduction to Ear Training and Major, Minor and Seventh Chords (A through G) as well as their corresponding Scales. Once this information is acquired, Martin teaches Note Values (Whole, Half, Quarter and Eighth notes / rests) while introducing various strum patterns encouraging the use of either songs requested by the student or parent or by utilizing his own vast catalogue of song selections.

“MUSIC IS PASSION” “MUSIC IS SERIOUS FUN”

I had the supreme pleasure of having Martin play at my 60th birthday party. He actually made the party. I had the time of my life sing and dancing to all his songs. Friends chipped in and we sang together. I had a special dance with my son, my daughter and my husband. From first contact with Martin I could feel the love. He has a romantic side just like I do. Several friends asked if they could have his contact information. It was a night I will always remember. AND, we are having Martin back in 2 months to play at my hubby's 70th birthday. This guy is a real jewel. Treat yourself!

Martin Shotwell’s Response:

Denise and her family & friends were so warm and inviting of me as I sang and played guitar for her Birthday Party. She and I worked together (via GigMasters Messaging Forum) to craft “excellent” set-lists for me to perform (which went over well, resonating with her attending guests both young and old.) I always enjoy working with and meeting new clients and, Denise’s hospitality and vibe exemplified one of the greatest experiences which artists hold dear.

Martin was perfect for my parents' 50th anniversary luau party. He learned songs for the party, and was such a gracious entertainer. He included my parents in a special Hawaiian wedding song, which made it very special for all our guests. Thanks so much for setting a great mood for a memorable milestone party.
