After a career in primary education, spanning thirty three years, Martin took the bold step to devote his talents to professional music. Classically trained from the age of four, he discovered the joy of accompanying whilst at college, and forty years later, he is in much demand throughout the North of England, working with choirs, music societies, opera groups, musical theatre companies and vocal soloists.
Martin considers it a thrill and a privilege to accompany singers and musicians of both a world – class reputation, and those who simply love making music for pleasure.
Martin has played for many DMTC rehearsals as well as in the pit for many of the shows we have staged at GALA. For the first time, he debuted as our Musical Director for “The Best of British Musicals” for which he was delighted and honoured. He is especially looking forward to working with Paul Wood on one of his favourite scores, “Carousel”.
