Maarten van der Grinten

Maarten van der Grinten

Maarten van der Grinten (Geleen,NL, 1963) started out playing drums at the age of 9 and took up the guitar three years later. From 1982 until 1987, he studied guitar at the prestigious Hilversum Conservatory with Willem 'Wim' Overgaauw and graduated with the highest honors. In 1987, he was awarded the Loosdrecht Festival Promotion Prize and in '88, he was given a scholarship to continue his studies for one year in New York at the Manhattan School of Music. Whilst there, he started to compose more seriously. He's played and recorded with many Dutch jazz musicians including Wim Overgaauw, Ack van Rooyen and John Engels and visiting players such as Clark Terry and Toots Thielemans along with a number of large ensembles including the WDR-Bigband, The Metropole Orchestra, the Willem Breuker Kollektief and the Jazz Orchestra of the Concertgebouw .


Maarten is currently co-leading four bands: Dig d'Diz, the Van der Grinten - Herman Quartet, the duo with guitarist Jesse van Ruller and the Brazilan music group Dirindi. He is currently teacher and chairman of the guitar section of the jazz faculty at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, formerly the Hilversum Conservatory.
