BIOGRAPHY

Max Levowitz is a freelance trumpet player based in Dallas-Fort Worth and Washington, D.C. While attending 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 among others.

 

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, being 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, Ben Patterson, Ari Hoenig, Dan Fornero, Clay Jenkins, Jeff Coffin, Gary Grant, Marvin Stamm, Michael League, among many others.

 

Having graduated from UNT in December 2018, Levowitz is looking forward to taking some time off of school, working on his craft as a trumpet player, and is planning on working on a cruise ship in the near future.
