    I had the pleasure of working with Emily for a wedding this past summer. She was the pianist and I was the vocalist. I could not have asked for a better person to work with! Emily is not only professional, organized, and extremely talented, but is so easy and joyful to work with. I could tell she put a lot of time into planning and looking at even the smallest details. Her performance was beautiful. She is obviously very experienced and loves what she does. She was willing to travel for the wedding and also to have a rehearsal a couple weeks before the wedding to ensure all was in order. She was prompt with communication as well. I will definitely be calling Emily for any future weddings and would love to work with her again. I highly recommend Emily to play at your wedding or any other event!

    Best Part of the Wedding Besides the Bride

    When the lady and I began planning our wedding, the only aspect of it for which I was immovable was having a pianist. Under no circumstances did I want a DJ ruining my wedding. This was the most important part of the wedding to me. Music is everything -- it sets the mood of your wedding and reception, it makes you feel a certain way, and it makes your guests feel a certain way.

    I searched the internet high and low, finally sending Emily an email. It was an instant connection. Emily is very talented, but also very knowledgeable. I myself was classically trained on the piano from a young age, toured in a couple rock bands, and minored in music in college. The lady and I are also season ticket holders to the symphony. As such, Emily graciously allowed us to be a part of the music selection and ordering.

    I'm not sure what this experience is like for other couples, but Emily allowed us to have great input into planning the music. We went back and forth selecting and ordering the music; we offered a lot of suggestions on specific songs and how the overall feel/phases of the day would go while she would say yay or nay, fill in gaps we missed, and offer her own suggestions based upon her vast knowledge and experience.. She learned new music for the occasion, including a special arrangement just for our first dance and for the Bride's entrance. She played classical music, jazz standards, Broadway, pop songs, and hybrids. She intermixed all the styles seamlessly.

    The result was magical. I started crying from the first note of the prelude, and I know my Elisabeth felt like the classiest and most special woman ever. There is a lot of that day that has become fuzzy in the months since, but I will always remember the music -- the way I felt that day in the ambiance that Emily created, and the way I still tear up just remembering it.

    Planning a wedding sucks. Vendors do not care about you, they care about making money. The live on their own timelines and generally do not respond to you. Our caterer was prompt with communication, but we were still just a number. Emily, however, cared. She was prompt in her communications; she always remembered our names (that sounds dumb, but other vendors didn't), and she was genuinely excited to play our music at our event.

    Emily, thank you.

    Everything about working with Emily was a complete pleasure. Not only is Emily very sweet and easy to work with, but she was very professional and most importantly she is a wonderful pianist. I hired Emily to play the piano as background music during my daughters wedding reception, we received so many compliments from friends and family who enjoyed her lovely music. I highly recommend hiring Emily for your special event.

    Emily was wonderful and I could not have been any happier with her performance. She listened to what I wanted and guided me through what I would need and determined the parts of the songs that would fit best. I highly recommend her as a pianist.

    Emily was absolutely wonderful to work with and she was so flexible with our last minute changes. She responded to every email within the day and we were complimented on her beautiful music. She was very professionally dressed for the occasion. She has new music to choose from, which is something we had difficulty finding with other musicians. I will be recommending her to anyone that asks!!!

    Emily played piano for my daughter's wedding ceremony. She was awesome! She was great to work with throughout the whole planning process. Emily played a variety of contemporary and classical pieces with perfection. She is very gifted and the ceremony music was absolutely beautiful! I would, and have, recommended Emily to everyone. I was moved to tears the first time I heard her play. You will certainly be "in good hands" if you select Emily for your event. Just beautiful!!

    Emily recently played the piano at my wedding ceremony. She was absolutely fantastic throughout the entire process (planning and actually playing). She quickly and eagerly learned songs that I requested and played them even better than I imagined. She was professional, polite, very nice, and very quick to respond to any form of communication. She's also a VERY talented musician! I have been recommending her to everyone I have talked to since the wedding!

    Emily played the piano for our wedding ceremony. She was fantastic! She was easy to work with, responsive, and very helpful with selecting appropriate music. We could not recommend her more highly!

    Emily played at my father's memorial service. My father loved music, especially old jazz standards. I wanted someone who could play a hymn and then play for the cocktail hour afterwards. Emily was wonderful! (I'm from NYC, so I'm pretty picky.) Not only is she a VERY talented musician, but she was a pleasure to work with. I've worked with many musicians at various events and I can tell you Emily is top-notch!

    We absolutely could not have done this without Emily. She did so much more than just provide the music for our outdoor wedding. She found someone to play with her so we could have Canon in D with both a piano and a violin. She also learned the song we wanted for our sand ceremony as well as helped us find some beautiful and appropriate music for the sad and unexpected memorial candle lighting ceremony we added when my grandfather passed away just before the ceremony. She stayed in touch with us lending her experience from planning her own wedding to help troubleshoot all the aspects of having an outdoor ceremony and even gave us some advice for our reception. At times she was more of a wedding planner than simply our ceremony musician. We can not thank her enough and look forward to my brother using her when its his time to get married.

    Emily Noatch gave an incredible classical piano concert at Mount Pleasant Retirement Village! She came prepared and played for the entire hour program. She is very talented and the residents were in awe of her talent. She is very professional and wonderful to work with!

    One word, incredible. I wanted to propose to my girlfriend and knew she liked classical violin music. So, I contacted Emily with only three days in advance. She agreed to do it and even helped me chose the songs she could play. Emily truly made the moment a perfect moment. She was very professional courteous and seemed like a happy person that you would not mind sharing an important moment in your life with. Thanks Emily.

    Emily was wonderful! She helped me select music that went beautifuly with my ceremony style. She asked all the right questions. She was pleasant well-dressed (even asked my wedding color and style to pick her outfit!). She was early and worked with the church music coordinator to time everything perfectly. She showed up early and she was so prepared she needed no direction from me. The solo violin was such a gorgeous and timeless addition to my ceremony I'm so glad I chose her instead of a trio like I was considering. Oh, and you can stop looking because she's HUNDREDS less expensive than anyone else around. Thank you so much Emily, I will definitely be sending people you're way! !

    Emily Noatch was the perfect special touch to our treasured weekend with my aging mother and 4 sisters. Emily surpassed our expectations. She arrived at my home 15 minutes early, taking a sincere interest in meeting everyone. She came prepared with a program of the classical selections that she thoughtfully chose from a variety of time periods and composers. As she played, my 82 year old mother slipped into heaven. Emily played with passion. She was delighted to chat between pieces if we had questions. She made my old piano sound new. I recommend Emily for any and all types of special occasions. You truly will be in good hands! Kathleen Garnica, Springboro, OH

    I contacted Emily through the University of Akron for my wedding. Her quick response and professionalism was phenomenal. She arrived at my wedding early to perform prior to the wedding and during. Her selection of music and quality of playing was perfect. Coming from one musician to another, I would highly recommend Emily for your Wedding or other event. Although it's been almost two years already, I still remember that day and her playing.

    Emily was the violinist at our outdoor wedding. We were absolutely thrilled with her performance during our ceremony. She helped us choose music and made time to meet with us to ensure that everything was just right. Emily is a very talented artist and executes her craft with the highest of excellence. I would definitely hire Emily again. Emily is a pleasure to work with.
