Award-winning trombonist, composer, and educator Brian Martin is based both in the music scene of his home state of Iowa as well as the Greater Boston area where he currently resides.  As a performer, Martin has performed alongside international and national touring artists in addition to leading his own groups.  His most ambitious project is his Brian Martin Big Band, an 18-person ensemble dedicated to performing his original music, which is composed of musicians from New England and the Midwest.


As a writer, his compositions and arrangements have received accolades from the Jazz Educators Network and DownBeat Magazine.  He has been commissioned to write new music for groups ranging in experience and ensemble from elementary concert bands, to collegiate jazz ensembles, to high school show choirs.  As an educator, Martin has worked with students ranging from elementary to the university level.  His students have received various awards and honors, ranging from acceptance into auditioned ensembles at the All-State and District levels to receiving DownBeat Magazine awards of their own.
