Joe Marta (b. 2001, Union, N.J.) is an American composer and student.
Joe Marta has a background in a variety of instrumental and choral styles, with experience in orchestra, band, and jazz. He started composing at a young age, drawing influences from what he saw and heard in the world around him, especially nature. His recent works for symphonic band, North and Summer Air, draw inspiration from the likes of a variety of composers such as Gustav Holst and John Williams, while adding his own artistic style and nature-based influences. In 2019, Joe was a state finalist in the NJMEA Young Composers Competition for his piece Soar!, an uplifting symphonic band piece that tells the story of a young hawk learning how to fly.
Mr. Marta is currently  studying with Dr. Melissa Dunphy at Mason Gross School of the Arts (Rutgers, N.J.). In his time there, he has written several pieces, including two art songs, Love and Loss for tenor, and To Write a Song for baritone.
