Jenny Martins


BA (Hons) Music (Classical)

Jenny also played for and regularly coached Newcastle, Northumbria and Sunderland University students and established performing partnerships with Iona Brown (Principal of Royal Northern Sinfonia) and the singer Graeme Danby, among others.

After moving to Leeds in 2015, Jenny took up a full-time post as a repetiteur for Opera North Education and enjoyed three years of working with the company's Youth Chorus and Children's Chorus, 'In Harmony' and a host of other outreach projects as well as frequently performing with the Chorus and Orchestra of Opera North.

Since leaving this role, Jenny has combined her work at Leeds Conservatoire with a busy freelance career of playing and teaching. She enjoys returning to Opera North for projects such as 'Intro to Opera' with director Laura Attridge, for which she developed and co-led workshops to help children explore The Magic Flute. Jenny regularly works with Stuart Overington as the accompanist of the Hallé Youth Choir and Hallé Training Choir, and with Shirley Court and the Hallé Children's Choir. She teaches at Leeds University as well as privately, and enjoys regular playing work with Northern Opera Group, Leeds International Piano Competition, and Yorkshire Youth Choir.

Jenny's recent solo performances include 'Light and Shadow', a programme of piano miniatures for Leeds University lunchtime concerts, and a performance of Beethoven's Waldstein Sonata for Newcastle University's 'Live Concerts At Home' series.
