2023 IASJ Jazz Meeting, Helsinki, Finland

over 110 participants from more than 20 nationalities

My name is Martin Zenker and I am an upright bass player, born and raised in Munich, Germany. After freelancing and touring worldwide for about almost 20 years I discovered my passion for education, when I started teaching in South Korea. Currently I divide my time between Asia and Europe, working mostly for the Universities in Munich, Germany, Klagenfurt in Austria and Ulan Bator in Mongolia. Besides teaching music, I am also involved or responsible for several exchange programs. The IASJ is perfect environment for connecting the jazz world and I am proud to be part of it.

The IASJ, founded in 1989, brought together over 3000 jazz students, teachers and directors from all over the world.
