Martin's Open Studio has transformed the landscape of jazz education by blending interactive online learning with direct access to celebrated musicians, offering personalized instruction that reshapes the teaching and experience of music in the digital era.

The platform's impact was particularly pronounced in 2023, with a 60% increase in active membership expanding its reach to 140 countries. New courses this year feature Emmet Cohen and Aaron Parks.
