Jazz Masterclass Maartje Meijer

For her Master’s degree she focused on arranging and took lessons from Jörg Achim Keller, chief conductor of the NDR Big Band. Her thesis was on counterpoint writing and polyphony in modern music. She completed both degrees (piano BA and vocals MA) in 2012 and has performed in many groups since.

As a band leader, Maartje has performed at countless festivals (Jazz in Duketown, Jazzy Huiskamers, Cutting Edge Jazz Festival, NEU/NOW Festival Talinn, Estonia) and venues (Bimhuis, Lantaren Venster, Bird, Beauforthuis). Together with Eric Vaarzon Morel & Jesse van Ruller they have hit many Dutch stages (Concertgebouw, Beauforthuis, Lantaren Venster) with their flamenco-jazz crossover.

As an arranger and composer, Maartje is very active for several bands and choirs. She regularly writes for New Amsterdam Voices, and has written for ensembles like The Jazz Orchestra of the Concertgebouw, G-Star and Frommermann.
