Martin is best known as a composer, arranger and instrumentalist. He often appears free lance in various roles as pianist/cellist/comedian. His musical arrangements are not only classical but also fall into the category of pop and jazz. As a composer he strives for a modern style which attempts to incorporate not only depth but also humour. He gained first class honours in cello and composition at the Lemmensinstituut and now teaches keyboard improvisation to students of music therapy as well as courses in music for drama students at the same institute.
