Raised in a musical family, Emily Noatch began studying violin in 1994 and piano in 1995, and knew from a young age she wanted to pursue music. She discovered a passion for both teaching and performing, and in 2007 began teaching private lessons while beginning her undergraduate degree in Piano Performance at The University of Akron.
In 2012, Emily graduated with a Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance and a certificate in Piano Pedagogy while studying under Professor Philip Thomson and Dr. Mayumi Kikuchi. During that time she performed in multiple events, including the University’s All-Steinway Campaign, Composer’s Forum, and three solo performances.
Emily's biggest achievement while at The University of Akron was winning the undergraduate Concerto Competition. As a result, she performed Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue for piano and orchestra at the EJ Thomas Performing Arts Hall in Akron, Ohio (video below).
In 2015, Emily was awarded the WeddingWire Couples' Choice Awards®, which recognizes the top five percent of local wedding professionals from the WeddingWire Network who demonstrate excellence in quality, service, responsiveness and professionalism.
