Screen Scoring Composer that has a strong background in orchestral writing, jazz music, and all genres of trumpet playing
I specialize in screen scoring (i.e. composing music for film, TV, video games). Holding two music degrees from the University of Southern California (USC), I have experience writing for musical ensembles of varying sizes
(everything from trumpet quartet, jazz combo and big band, pop horn section, chamber groups and full orchestra).
Additionally, I am a professional trumpet player, capable of playing and recording any genre.
Born in Las Vegas, NV and based in Los Angeles, CA, Josh Ginsburg is a multifaceted composer and trumpet player. While pursuing his original voice as a hybrid musician, Josh draws influence from both his background as an orchestral composer and as a Jazz musician. He takes inspiration from the constantly evolving Jazz tradition in addition to the widespread screen scoring genre. Some of his largest influences include: (Film) John Williams, Hans Zimmer, Alan Silvestri; (Jazz) Jim McNeely, Chris Potter, Miles Davis. He views all aspects of sound and music as different elements that can be explored and incorporated as a performing musician and composer.
With a Bachelors of Music in Jazz Studies/Trumpet (Magna Cum Laude) and a Masters of Music in Jazz Studies/Trumpet (Summa Cum Laude) from the University of Southern California, Josh will be pursuing a Masters of Music in Screen Scoring from USC in the Spring of 2021.

Josh is superb. He worked at a professional standard, was communicative, and a joy to work with. He played the trumpet beautifully on my track and gave it his individual touch. I will definitely reach out to him again and would highly recommend Josh for your next project.
Josh will surely deliver beyond your expectations! I've had the pleasure of including him in my large band projects and Josh always came in prepared, with a great performance, and with a friendly attitude. His arrangement work is excellent as well. Do not hesitate to hire Josh!
