Provided we get 50 students register (we are at 16 so far), here is who our new band instructor will be!
Noah is an opera singer from Mountain View, California. He graduated with a Bachelor of the Arts from University of California Los Angeles in 2014, with a focus in Music Education and Vocal Performance. During his time at UCLA, he studied under the direction of Vladimir Chernov. He also performed major baritone roles in UCLA's productions of Orpheus in the Underworld, Les Enfants et les Sortileges, and Don Giovanni. After graduating, Noah was invited to attend Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris, where he studied for two years under the tutelage of Olga Sergeevna.
Instrumentally, Noah has played the clarinet since the age of 12. At UCLA, he gained proficiency in trumpet, trombone, flute, oboe, bassoon, percussion, alto sax, violin, cello, and guitar. Due to his love for marching band in high school, Noah joined the UCLA Bruin Marching Band where he played clarinet for 3 years and trumpet for 1 year.
Through training as an instrumentalist and a vocalist, Noah has been able to discern the strengths of both to make himself a better and stronger musician. Noah is excited to become a part of the Arts Initiative team, and share these areas of expertise this summer and the upcoming year.
(Arts Initiative is Chris and Harry Reed's company.)
