BIOGRAPHY

Max Levowitz is a freelance trumpet player based in Cincinnati, Ohio, currently pursuing his Masters Degree in Jazz Studies at The University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. While pursuing his Bachelors at The University of North Texas, Levowitz was fortunate enough to study with Dr. Jason Bergman, Rodney Booth and Tanya Darby, spend his final semester in school as a member of the Grammy-nominated One O’Clock Lab Band under the direction of Alan Baylock, and was previously a member of the Three, and Two O’Clock Lab Bands and can be heard on the 2018 Two O’Clock Album, Two Much!

 

Levowitz began playing the trumpet in 2005 at age 10 and began studying privately the next year with former lead trumpet player of The US Army Blues and a staple in the National Symphony Orchestra Pops, Dave Detwiler. In the summer of 2008, his love for jazz blossomed after attending the inaugural National Jazz Workshop hosted at Shenandoah Conservatory in Winchester, VA. Levowitz began attending the camp regularly, and has been able to work with Washington DC’s finest jazz musicians from The Army Blues, Airmen of Note, and Navy Commodores. His love for big band made college applications relatively easy, as The University of North Texas is one of the top jazz schools in the world and is known for its illustrious One O’Clock and famous alumni such as Frank Greene, Stockton Helbing, Ed Soph, Ari Hoenig, Dan Fornero, Clay Jenkins, Marvin Stamm, Michael League, among many others.

 

Having graduated from UNT in December 2018, Levowitz spent the summer of 2019 traveling from the Baltic Sea to the Mediterranean Sea working on the Regent Seven Seas Explorer, performing a variety of music every night and with guest artists including world renowned musicians Ian Cooper on Violin and Kym Purling on Piano
