About Noam Tanzer

My name is Noam Tanzer (נעם טנזר), I was born and raised in central Israel. I went to the Jerusalem arts high-school, attending Raz Sekeles’s jazz program. In Jerusalem, I had the honor of studying from great masters such as Prof. Michael Klinghoffer and Tal Gamlieli.

As I was chosen by Terri Lyne Carrington and Rick Dimuzio to participate in Berklee’s 2015 Jazz workshop, I was blessed with a full scholarship for BA studies in Berklee. I had a great time playing in Bulgaria, Hungary, Georgia, Italy, USA and Israel. While visiting New York City, I got to meet and take a lesson from Maestro Ron Carter. In October 2017, I had the great honor of sharing the stage with Legends Gary Burton, Bill Frisell, and Jim Odgren as part of a celebration of maestro Michael Gibbs, conducted by Gregory Hopkins.

I’m currently studying at Berklee College of Music’s Global Jazz Institute with great artists and educators such as Danilo Perez, Marco Pignataro, and John Patitucci. I also have the pleasure of studying with masters such as Terence Blanchard, David Santoro, Jim Odgren, John Lockwood.

I have won a few competitions such as:
2012 “Young Folk” (Grand Prix) in Nessebar, Bulgaria
2016 RSJF youth contest
Umbria Jazz Conad Jazz contest
2017 National YoungArts Foundation Honorable Mention winner in Jazz Double Bass
2016 AICF Scholarship recipient.
