Martha Berit Belt holds a master’s degree in piano performance from The Grieg Academy in Bergen, with Signe Bakke as her teacher. In her master’s project she studied the music of Olivier Messiaen. She has also been taking lessons with pianists such as Håvard Gimse and Julius Drake, among others.

Belt performs regularly, both as a soloist and an accompanist. In addition to being an active pianist in Bergen, she has recent years been given a concert in Grieg-Begegnungsstätte in Leipzig and participated in Lied-duo competition in Groningen in the Netherlands, to mention a few of her projects. She has given several concerts at Troldhaugen, both as “pianist of the week” and in Grieg’s villa. Belt has a wide repertoire that reaches from early music by Bach to contemporary music by living composers – she has taken part in festivals such as Borealis and Oslo International Theatre Festival. She often collaborates with singers and instrumentalists as accompanist and chamber musician.
