Noah Getz

For nearly 20 years, I have been the Saxophone In-Residence Faculty at American University, Woodwind Instructor at The National Cathedral School for Girls and St. Albans School for Boys, and have maintained a private saxophone studio where I teach all ages. I am a Grammy-nominated artist and maintain an active performing schedule throughout the world with recent performances at the Melbourne Recital Centre, Carnegie Hall, The Royal Conservatory of Brussels, The Polish Woodwind Festival, the Degollado Theater in Guadalajara, Mexico, and Zero Point Festival in Prague, Czech Republic. I have been called a “highly skillful and an even more highly adventurous player” (Washington City Paper) with “virtuosity, sensitivity, and beauty of tone” (Fanfare).
