Carlos Martinez, a native of Managua, Nicaragua, is a concert pianist and composer and a family man. His music career began at the age of five when he first started taking lessons.
At age seven he joined the National Conservatory of Music and by eleven was playing with various classical national chamber ensembles. At that time he performed with several artists from Nicaragua and began a long-term relationship as the accompanist for the First Baptist Church Choir (a one-of-a-kind choir in Nicaragua).
He went on to receive a scholarship to study music in the USA where he studied under international musicians from Russia and Germany.
He has performed in El Salvador, Cuba, and many times at the National Theater in Nicaragua. Other international venues include the Luis A. Ferré Performing Arts Center in Puerto Rico.
In Nicaragua, he also recorded with famous musicians and his original music has been performed by numerous artists and churches.
His hope is that the music he writes and performs are a blessing to others. He also wants to be able to share the good news of Christ through music.
