About Me

Tessa Nojaim is a recent graduate of the Eastman School of Music and the University of Rochester. She earned a degree in Classical Tuba Performance, a degree in Political Science, a Performer's Certificate, and an Arts Leadership Certificate. 

 

Tessa has played the tuba for 15 years, and has performed with the Eastman Wind Ensemble, Eastman Philharmonia, Eastman Brass Guild, Orchard Park Symphony Orchestra, Southtowns Youth Orchestra, Greater Buffalo Youth Orchestra, the World Youth Wind Orchestra Project, and Occasional Brass. Tessa has performed with two all-female brass quintets, and won a spot in the Eastman to Go Program, a chamber music community outreach series. While at Eastman, she studied with Don Harry, and completed a semester abroad at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, where she studied with Steve Rosse. 

 

Tessa has also been selected to play in numerous masterclasses and distinguished performances. This includes a performance with the Canadian Brass quintet and the Eastman Wind Ensemble, winning the principal tuba position with the Eastman Philharmonia for a tour across China, and performing in masterclasses with tubists including Sergio Carolino, Deanna Swoboda, Justin Benavidez, and more. Additionally, while at Eastman, Tessa was elected President of the student body, and was also selected to present the commencement address at graduation.

In 2022, Tessa finished her first year of law school at Suffolk University in Boston on a Trustee Academic Scholarship. While in Boston, she volunteered at the North End Performing Arts Center (NEMPAC), a nonprofit community music school. She also spent one year volunteering for Through the Staff, a program which offers free virtual music lessons to students who may have lost access to their music education during the pandemic, or who are unable to afford private lessons. 

Now in New York City, Tessa is working as a Contracts Administrator & Music Clearance Specialist for an Artist Management Agency.
