Theresa MartinTheresa Martin (b. 1979) is a freelance composer and musician whose energetic, melodious, and often rhythmically driven music grabs the attention of the audience and keeps performers on their toes.

As a clarinetist and pianist, she performs regularly in local ensembles. In a recent online article, she was named one of history’s top 100 female clarinetists. She is the Wisconsin State Chair of the International Clarinet Association. Dr. Martin has a private music studio in Appleton, Wisconsin, and she also appears as guest composer/lecturer at universities worldwide.
