Jorge García Martín began his musical education in Salamanca, where he studied piano, organ and harpsichord. Attracted by early keyboard music, he moved to Switzerland to study at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. There he studied the Organ Master with Lorenzo Ghielmi, Andrea Marcon, Wolfgang Zerer and Jörg-Andreas Boetticher and the Historical Improvisation Master, working with Rudolf Lutz, Markus Schwenkreis, Nicola Cumer and Emmanuel Le Divellec.

He develops an intense career as a soloist offering recitals and performance and improvisation concerts throughout Spain, the rest of Europe and Asia (Japan). He has won and has been a finalist in various national and international competitions (Primer Premio del Concorso Organistico Internazionale “Organi del basso Friuli”, Italia).

He has been assistant professor of Historical Improvisation at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis and professor of Improvisation and Basso continuo at the Katarina Gurska Higher School. He is currently a professor of Basso Continuo and Historical Improvisation at the Conservatory of Music of Castilla y León, coordinator of the International Organ Festival of Tordesillas and the International Organ Academy in Castilla.

He has given master classes related to historical improvisation and the old keyboard repertoire in much of Europe and Japan, participating in courses and congresses of international relevance (Lausanne Improvisation Festival, Basel Studentage Improvisation, Julián de la Orden Organ Academy, Sociedad Española de Etnomusicología, Sociedad Española de Musicología, Patrimonio Nacional etc.)

His investigative facet is developed in the field of historical improvisation, the historically informed practice of basso continuo and in the historical interpretation of keyboard music. He is currently doing his Doctoral Thesis on Spanish keyboard improvisation at the University of Valladolid.
