Martin Thiselton Biography

Martin Thiselton was born in the Summer of 1969 in Bristol. He lived in Sheffield from 1970 until his 'O' levels in 1985 taken at King Edward VII School. He lived for two years in Nottingham whilst working towards his 'A' levels in Music, Maths, and Physics; and then worked towards his degree in Music at the University of Durham. His degree included a first year subsidiary course in Electronics, and a second and third year in Acoustics and Studio composition. He also studied orchestration, fugue, harmony and counterpoint.

He returned to Sheffield in 1990 to work towards a Masters degree in organ performance and composition which was completed in 1993. Between 1993 and 1996 he wrote two pieces for organ and orchestra entitled Rhapsody and Study. He also won a prize for a high score in a grade 8 theory paper. He has continued to live in Sheffield, although in 1996 worked towards a doctorate degree in composition under Nicholas Sackman at Nottingham University. This was completed in 2001 during which time he received a prize for his piece Four Songs from the North.

Martin now works for the Sheffield Music Academy and the Performing Arts Development Service in Barnsley. He has been a guest conductor for two orchestras, and is an organist (St Timothy's Church, Sheffield), keyboard and viola player.
