William Axt (April 19, 1888 – February 13, 1959) was an American composer of nearly two hundred film scores.

Life and career

Born in New York City, Axt graduated from DeWitt Clinton High School in The Bronx and studied at the National Conservatory of Music of America.[citation needed] He earned a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the University of Chicago in 1922.[1] He studied in Berlin under Xaver Scharwenka.[2]

Axt made his American debut as a conductor on December 28, 1910.[2]

He served as an assistant conductor for the Hammerstein Grand Opera Company and was a musical director for the Capitol Theatre in Manhattan before joining the music department at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in 1929.[citation needed]

Axt retired from the film industry to raise cattle and breed horses in Laytonville, California.[citation needed] He died in Ukiah, California, and had at least one son (Edward).[3]
