As a native of Arkansas, Noah McNair came to a career in music along a broad trail of classical study, pop bands, and jam-sessions that led him from Little Rock, up to Michigan, though Indiana, and back again (with an unrequited-love fling in Mexico, for good measure). Currently, he lives and works as a teacher and freelancer in Kansas City, where you can find him in a variety of situations– from late-night jazz sessions at the Mutual Musicians Foundation, to the Kansas City Symphony, and everything in-between.
