Professor Martin Jarvis' work in music education is highly regarded in the Northern Territory. Well known in the wider community as the creator of the Darwin Symphony Orchestra, he brings more than 35 years of industry experience to the School Creative Arts and Humanities.

Professor Jarvis' musical life started at the age of 14. His dedication to his craft has enabled him to travel the world with several orchestra, which also gave him the opportunity to study under many prestigious musicians.

After completing music education he moved to Darwin and joined CDU. He teaches viola, violin, conducting, and lectures in both ‘Modernity’ and ‘Creative Practice’, as well as artistically directing the Darwin Symphony Orchestra.

Professor Jarvis has won awards for his contribution to the Australian culture in particular the Northern Territory.
