Her work in vocal music at the middle school and high school was very well-respected among her colleagues in the district and within the Southern California community. She prepared her groups and received “Superior” rating at adjudicated festivals within the district and regionally. I’ve observed Noelle’s ensembles in concert, festival and in class and can tell you from first-hand experience that she is an expert in teaching and motivating students to produce high-quality music with a variety of repertoire.
