Noah first burst onto the film music scene at age 16, as one of the runners-up in CINE’s Marvin Hamlisch film scoring competition. After arriving at NYU, he became the youngest-ever winner of the annual NYU Film Scoring Competition.

In June 2019, Noah received a grant from NYU to present a paper on the music of John Williams at the15th annual Music and the Moving Image Conference.
This past summer, Noah interned with composer Henry Jackman where he worked on the music teams of Jumanji: The Next Level, 21 Bridges, American Skin, and Out of the Fire. His orchestral concert music has also been recognized, and he is one of the three student composers, and only undergraduate, selected as one of this year’s NYU Orchestra Residency winners. Noah is also the recipient of the 2019-2021 NYU Alan Menken Scholarship.
