Noah Halpern



Halpern's ardent tonality was rich and warm, giving the evening an extraordinary two trumpet hit.
Paul Rauch

Noah Halpern is one of the leading young trumpet players of his generation. Growing up in Seattle, WA, Noah began playing piano at the age of 5, before switching to the trumpet at 10. Originally apathetic to the instrument, his love of the trumpet was sparked upon discovering his father's records of Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, and Clifford Brown. Noah continued to develop his passion for music at Roosevelt High School, where he was selected to be a member of the Next Generation Jazz Orchestra, the Brubeck Jazz Colony, and was a participant at the Essentially Ellington Jazz Festival. He received the "Waldo King Most Inspirational Award" from his high school upon graduation.

Since moving to New York in 2014 to attend The Juilliard School (Bachelor of Music '18, Master of Music '19) Noah has been fortunate to play all around the city at venues including Dizzy's Club Coca Cola, Smalls Jazz Club, and The Blue Note. Noah has toured around the U.S., Europe, Japan, and Australia, playing at festivals including Umbria Jazz Festival, Jazz a Vienne, The Monterrey Jazz Festival, The Nagoya Jazz Festival, The Bern Jazz Festival, and Generations in Jazz. He has been mentored by the likes of Eddie Henderson, Joe Magnarelli, Wynton Marsalis, Frank Kimbrough, and Kenny Washington. In 2020, his group was featured in the virtual Festival of New Trumpet Music of 2020. As a composer, Noah has written music for dance ensembles, big bands, music videos, and his own project, the Noah Halpern Quartet. Noah currently resides in Brooklyn, NY. Noah has been teaching since his high school days and specializes in trumpet technique, improvisation, jazz repertoire, and composition. Along with private study, he also has given masterclasses and workshops across the U.S.
