Jonathan's love for music and love for people have promoted him and his work quickly in many different genres and art forms.

Jonathan has been performing on stage since he was three years old. A life-long love of music and the arts continued to propel him forward to pursue full-time music-making. He received his Undergraduate degree from Evangel University in Springfield, Missouri in Vocal & Instrumental Music Education where he was named the Outstanding Graduate in Music Education.

Featured on his first studio recording at age five, Jonathan was singing before he could walk. In his teenage years, his love for band music led him to begin writing for wind ensemble groups and marching bands. His first full band composition was performed when he was fifteen years old. Since then, his passion for instrumental music education has led him to create educationally grounded & achievable music for the modern marching ensemble all published through his business Jonathan Martin Music. Additionally, he is a freelance composer who has written and arranged music for large churches in the Midwest including Dream City Church in Phoenix, AZ and Crossway Baptist Church in Springfield, MO. His arrangements have also been heard on the Dino & Friends Christmas Holiday Gathering show in Springfield, Missouri. Currently, Jonathan’s company serves educators and educational groups in seven different states throughout the Midwest with growing reach all around the country. At any given time, Jonathan’s music can be heard on the marching band field, in band classrooms, churches, and performance halls around the country.

Jonathan's philosophy of music is simple and is reflective of Ecclesiastes 9:10: "Whatever your hands find to do, do it with all your might”. May you find excellence abounding in Jonathan's work and a renewed sense of God's gift to mankind reflected through the notes and music he produces.

May you find excellence abounding in Jonathan's work and a renewed sense of God's gift to mankind reflected through the notes and music he produces.

Recent Projects

From the "Dino & Friends Christmas Holiday Gathering Show"

Grand Medley of Carols

In the fall of 2022, Dino returned to the stage for the Dino and Friend's Christmas Holiday Gathering show. Unfortunately all the original music manuscripts for the show were lost, so Jonathan was hired to help recreate David T. Clydesdale's majestic orchestrations for the Holiday spectacular.

View a portion of the score HERE.

Big Mac 25th Anniversary Commercial

For this project, Jonathan was tasked with creating music for the 25th celebration of the iconic McDonald's BigMac. The catch? The original commercial was produced in Portuguese! Jonathan rewrote the commercial and produced the music and vocals.
