Martins’ Music Studio was established in Los Angeles in 1982 by a husband and wife team, Brice Martin and Natalie Dalschaert. They are both graduates of Juilliard and USC, and have differing specialties. They both teach music, are active in studio recording, and play live events.
Brice and Natalie teach a wide range of ages, and firmly believe that its never too early nor too late to nurture a love for music. They are also experienced with teaching students with special needs, and are sensitive to the learning style of each individual student. They have a lifelong passion for music, and love sharing that passion with their students.
Brice is an active studio musician, and plays for film, TV, and commercial soundtracks. He specialized in exotic woodwinds, and has a large collection from around the world. He has played “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves,” the Grammy Awards Orchestra, “Star Trek: Voyager,” and “The Wonderful World of Disney.” Brice is also a composer and has written music for concerts, film, and television.
Brice received his Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Southern California, and his Masters of Music degree from the Juilliard School in New York.
Natalie received her Bachelor of Music degree in Piano Performance from the Juilliard School in New York, and her Master of Music degree from the University of Southern California, where she received the Koldofsky Memorial Scholarship.
Natalie is a sought-after pianist and accompanist for recitals, competitions, master classes and social events. She is a frequent guest performer at the Rancho La Puerta Resort in Mexico, where she presents her “Concert and Conversation” programs. These concerts include interesting and entertaining commentary about the composers’ lives, pieces of music performed, and her own experiences as a performer.
Natalie has performed on television, coached actors, and has been a production musicion, for the “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” “Perfect Strangers,” “Jag,” “Wings,” and “Song of the Lark.”
Ms. Dalschaert has performed on many concert series with her husband, flutist Brice Martin. Performances include the “Sundays at Four” radio broadcasts at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Redlands Bowl, Cal Poly San Louis Obispo, Cal Tech, and for the Los Angeles Philharmonic Committee concerts.
A lover of musical theater, Natalie has been musical director and pianist for numerous shows with the Los Angeles Youth Theater. Natalie has an active teaching studio and is a member of the Music Teachers Association of MTAC festivals. She has had students perform the Grieg Piano Concerto and the Chopin Second Concerto with orchestra.
