Piano, Songwriting | Farmington

Noah is an Ogden born and raised musician who has been playing the piano since 2010. Noah initially started playing the piano by accident, while fulfilling lessons that his mother signed up for but decided not to use. He immediately fell in love with the instrument and writing music, composing his first short piece only 2 weeks after starting lessons. From that point, Noah knew he was destined to become a musician. He studied at Bravo Arts Academy until 2015, then moved to private lessons under Derek Myler, where he learned advanced jazz/classical piano and composition for orchestra. During this time, Noah composed countless pieces for piano and accompanying instruments including violin, cello, harp, and voice, including a piece titled Red Tide for Carrie Young's Junior Symphony. Noah was also able to play the piano for the McKay-Dee Piano Guild, the Zions Bank Art Gallery in 2018, the Bigelow Hotel, and various other performances and recitals. In 2017, Noah studied for one year under Kris Johnson and the jazz department at University of Utah, where he furthered his jazz theory and performance knowledge. In 2018, Noah moved across the country to Boston to fulfill his dream of attending Berklee College of Music. There he expanded his knowledge of production, jazz theory, jazz composition, musical industry, and music business. Noah performed with countless ensembles and bands playing various genres including blues, rock, and reggae. For Noah's senior project, he composed and conducted an original song titled Amaranthus for the 17 piece Belgium Symphonic Orchestra. Noah graduated in 2021 Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Contemporary Writing and Production. Today Noah enjoys jamming with local bands and producing music for local artists. Noah believes fully in the healing and congregation that music can bring to communities and culture. He believes that if able, everyone should learn some form of an instrument in their lives, because of the deeply fulfilling experience that music can bring to one's life. He hopes to see this appreciation and love in his students, just like he did when he first touched the keyboard!

“Music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.”
- Billy Joel
