FMA Announces Dr. Jason Noble Music Fund

FMA is establishing an endowed fund to honor Dr. Jason Noble’s 15-year legacy as band director of Scarsdale High School, where he successfully led over 150 students each year to make great music.  

During his tenure, Dr. Noble grew participation in the program by challenging students’ expectations of themselves and by creating a safe space for students to learn and grow. He worked with teens, 9th-12th grade, expanding their horizons through exposure to challenging compositions, to renowned guest conductors, to international travel, and to regular performance.   

Dr. Noble’s teaching is inspired by the views of his mentor, Maxine Greene, who believed that arts education promotes students to be “wide awake” and that “creative thinking and imagination” enable “students to engage in the world not as it is but how they may want it to be.” 

Funds will be designated annually to offset costs for travel programs, performance, compositions and band music.  FMA thanks Dr. Noble for his incredible and positive impact on the lives of children in Scarsdale and wishes him joy in his next adventure, teaching at the college level.
