After graduating with first class honours from the Royal College of Music, Manus Noble was awarded a scholarship to do his Masters at the Royal Academy of Music. Noble gave his debut performance at the Cadogan Hall, aged 19. He was given Performance Awards by the Musicians Benevolent Fund, Countess of Munster and Ian Flemming Trusts, and was accepted onto the Park Lane Group Young Artist’s Concert Series at the Purcell Room. He won first prize in the Ivor Mairants Guitar Competition in 2011.
After graduating from the Royal Academy (with Distinction), Noble has given recitals at festivals such as West Dean, Cheltenham Guitar Festival, Bath International Guitar Festival, Beechwood Guitar Course and London International Guitar Festival. He has been accepted onto the Countess of Munster for two years running, as well as the Making Music recital scheme. Recent performances include recitals at Kings Place, Sage Gateshead and Bridgewater Hall.
As well as writing for the instrument himself, Noble has developed a flair and passion for modern techniques and repertoire, with many composers choosing to write new works for him.
