Born in 1996, Martin Jollet began his piano studies with Marc Maier at the Tours Regional Conservatory at the age of 5. He will leave in 2015 with the obtaining of his Diploma of Musical Studies as well as his prize for improvement in piano, with the congratulations of the jury. In addition, he follows extensive training in chamber music, writing, accompaniment, keyboard harmony, analysis, music theory and basso continuo. He obtains a prize or a graduation diploma in each of his disciplines.

At 18, he was admitted to the Haute École de Musique de Lausanne in piano in the class of Christian Favre. He completed his Bachelor's degree there, obtained with the maximum mark of 6, as well as his Master concert. He notably had the opportunity to work with Vincent Coq, Renaud Capuçon, François Salque, Pascal Moraguès, Martin Katz, Patrick Demenga, William Blank and so many others that he continued to meet.
A versatile artist, he also studied orchestration and conducting, and multiplied collaborations, exploring as much as possible the soloist and chamber music repertoire. He continued his studies at the Musik Akademie in Basel for a second Master's degree, under the tutelage of Claudio Martinez Mehner. At the same time, concerts as a soloist and in chamber music are multiplying in Switzerland as well as in France, where he is invited to numerous festivals in these two countries. Next September, he will perform Ravel's Concerto en Sol with the Collegium Music Basel at the Musikzentrum don Bosco. With Maria Andrea Mendoza and Diana Pasko, he founded the Trio Olympia in 2019, with which he participated in the "Beethoven Marathon" organized by Arte and RTS, recording at the famous Studio Ansermet in Geneva. With the trio, they are also invited to the Mélodies sur Arzon festival, as well as to La Roque d'Anthéron in 2020. They will perform at the Hizenberg festival in 2021.
