We are excited to welcome Jason Noble to the JWA faculty. Jason is one of Australia’s foremost classical clarinet teachers and a very successful performer. He teaches all levels and has a vast knowledge of AMEB and HSC music. IN fact, he is even an AMEB examiner. Jason will be teaching clarinet and saxophone. Here is his (rather impressive) bio:
Jason Noble is a clarinettist performing in styles from classical to experimental and popular music. He has experimented with all members of the clarinet family and dabbled on saxillo, clarinis, keyboards and bagpipe . As a core member of Ensemble Offspring for the past fifteen years , he has toured to Europe, Asia, and performed in most Australian cities and regional centres.
Recent projects highlight the variety of work Jason is involved with. “Am I”, with Nick Wales and the Shaun Parker Dance Company, has toured festivals in Germany, Stockholm, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide. He has twice visited the Afghanistan National Institute of Music in Kabul to perform and teach. He performed with the Tiwi Women’s Strong Group Ngarukruwala at the 2016 Sydney Festival.
Jason has collaborated with popular musicians Sally Seltmann, Holly Throsby, Jess Green, Alyx Dennison and has begun recording a second album with Ngarukuruwala. He has been awarded “Best Performance” as part of the APRA/AMC Awards with Ensemble Offspring , and premiered the winning compositions “A Flock of Stars” by Lyn Williams and “The Secret Noise” by Damien Ricketson.
In 2016, Jason will launch a new radio program on Fine Music 102.5FM. Entitled ‘New Australian Music for the HSC”, the program will offer students, teachers, performers and composers and outlet for celebrating their work.
Jason has taught in the Musicology Department of the Sydney Conservatorium of Music for more than ten years, where he also obtained his bachelor degree with first class honours. He has taught at Moriah College, Trinity Grammar, MLC Burwood, Gondwana Voices, Sydney Boys High, North Sydney Boys High and Bellevue Hill Primary School.
Jason is also a woodwind examiner for the A.M.E.B, examining at both grade and diploma levels.
