Faculty Spotlight: Meet Wes Martin

by | Apr 30, 2024

At MediaTech Institute, fostering creativity isn’t just our mission; it’s a core part of our culture. No one embodies this more than Wes Martin, Managing Director for both the Dallas and Houston campuses. With a decade of experience as an MTI instructor teaching everything from Music Theory & Production and Aural Training to Songcrafting, Wes brings a wealth of knowledge and passion to his role at our school.

In a recent interview, Wes reflects on how his journey into the world of music began in his childhood, watching his father operate a local recording studio. Early in life he was immersed in the world of music, and was exposed to studio protocol, professionalism, and every step of the recording process. This exposure turned into a love for music- a desire to learn guitar and become a studio musician.  As he entered adulthood and further honed his skills on the guitar, Wes’s passion for music led him to embark on a decade-long journey of touring and recording with diverse artists, both in the U.S. and overseas.

Amidst his adventures, Wes found himself drawn to the art of teaching his craft. In 2013, he joined MediaTech Institute as an instructor, where he found his true calling. For Wes, the most rewarding aspect of teaching lies in witnessing students from all walks of life come together, united by their shared passion for music and art. He cherishes the moments when individual differences are set aside, and the collective pursuit of creativity takes center stage.

For Wes it’s not just about imparting knowledge; it’s about empowering the next generation of artists and creatives. Wes is a firm believer in the transformative power of education, particularly the resources and opportunities offered by institutions like MediaTech. He reflects on his own creative journey, wishing he had known about such a supportive environment earlier in his career- and how he loves getting the opportunity to save his students the headaches he had to endure as he was making his way in the industry.

As MediaTech’s #1 fan, Wes is dedicated to spreading the word about the institute’s invaluable resources and education. Whether it’s through teaching, producing, or simply sharing his own experiences, Wes continues to inspire and uplift those around him, proving that the pursuit of creativity knows no bounds. 

We invite you to join this amazing community of creatives and kickstart your career at MediaTech Institute.
