An Ann Arbor, Michigan, native and current student at Philadelphia’s Temple University, Oliver Mayman is a vibraphonist, pianist, educator, and composer. Beginning drums at age 9 and piano at age 13, the vibraphone was an inevitable discovery as a teenager — the instrument essentially fusing the mechanics of drumming with the harmonic capabilities of the piano. By bringing his array of pianist influences such as Ethan Iverson, Thelonious Monk, Oscar Peterson, and McCoy Tyner and applying their concepts to the vibraphone, he truly treats the instrument as a piano, comfortable in every setting from solo to big band. He has performed across Michigan and Pennsylvania, from clubs like the Blue Llama and Chris’ Jazz Cafe to events attracting hundreds of thousands like the Detroit Jazz Festival. He also has extensive teaching experience, teaching privately for vibraphone, drums, piano, and music theory, in addition to being on faculty at vibesworkshop.com, the largest online vibraphone community in the world.
