Fun with Rich
Rich Martin began his long career as a professional musician when he was sixteen, playing piano and accordion for parties, dances, cruise ships, Nevada casinos, weddings and nightclubs. After graduating from San Francisco State University with a B.A. in music, he began a highly successful 31-year career teaching instrumental music in the Mt. Diablo Unified School District. Many adult musicians today credit Rich Martin with being the inspiration behind their love and passion for music. He has written hundreds of instrumental compositions (music) and songs (words and music) in various styles - jazz for musicians, Latin's, rags, rock, classical, country/western and pop songs. He continues to teach piano privately. Since his retirement from the school district, he has been able to devote more time to composition and his music is now heard all over the world. Thanks to the internet, his seven all-original solo piano CD's and his two CD's with vocalist Jody Cook singing his newest original songs are available for downloads, streaming and physical CD purchase here on cdbaby.com and many other sites If you enjoy listening to piano music, give Rich a try.

We hope that you, the listener, will find listening to these songs as much fun as we had doing them.
