Student Testimonials:
"Noelle is a patient, caring, attentive, and technically outstanding voice instructor. Although I’ve sung casually all my life, I took lessons from her as a beginner since I never developed the skills I needed to make good use of my voice. Because of my beginner status, Noelle started me off with the basics of breathing, posture, and vocal cord and palate positioning. Over the weeks, I practiced exercises she assigned me to strengthen and train my voice.... Noelle was always patient with me and helped me with strategies to improve my ear. In the end, I improved my tonal quality quite a bit as well as my ear. I recommend her highly!"

"During my senior year of high school I had the privilege of having Noelle Harb for my voice teacher. I loved her enthusiasm for singing and engaging personality from the first time I met her. She patiently answered questions and taught me many techniques. She was also a wonderful friend and we did things like going to see a live filming of her favorite opera singer. The most important lesson I learned from her over the year I took lessons was having confidence in my own voice and learning to love my own unique sound. I went from hardly wanting to sing a scale for her in the classroom to being willing and confident to sing a solo on stage."

"Hi, I'm Molly McKinney and this is my first time taking serious vocal lessons. Noelle has helped me really understand the importance of breathing, and how much it really helps when done the proper way. She has taught me silly little techniques to help me get warmed up, and they really work too! She's very thoughtful and considerate of the students thoughts and feelings. She is funny and nice and I feel like we can joke around while also being serious about singing. One thing she tells me whenever I get nervous about singing something is, "don't be scared. It's just singing. There is nothing to be afraid of," and that has really stuck with me. I haven't been to many lessons, but the ones I have been too have been wonderful help to me, and I can't wait to go to many more!"

Highly, highly recommend! I've only had one lesson with Noelle but thus far, am incredibly impressed. She knows what she is talking about and instructs well!

Thrilled to continue!

I was nervous the first lesson. Noelle did a great job of making me feel comfortable. We went through some breathing exercises and some scales. Can't wait to come back for more!

Noelle is one of the best vocal teachers I have had. I have been singing since I was young and have had three separate vocal teachers. Noelle surpassed these other older, more experienced vocal teachers. She uses techniques and exercises that are simple to remember and use when you are practicing on your own and performing. Along with being a great teacher, she has a wonderful personality. She is very inviting and truly interested in your daily life. Her main goal is to get you to the peak of your singing ability.

Fabulous experience! Not only is Noelle knowledgeable, she's cheerful and encouraging as well. Scheduling was easy. Noelle contacted us before the lesson and was very friendly and organized. Our daughter is a beginner and absolutely loved it!

I didn’t practice enough and I don’t have a particularly good musical ear, but Noelle was always patient with me and helped me with strategies to improve my ear. In the end, I improved my tonal quality quite a bit as well as my ear. I recommend her highly!
