Senior Send-off: Noah Williams
Noah Willams first came to Music House when he was in 5th grade. Since then he's grown to be not just an accomplished drummer, but an excellent young man. "Noah has always been such a hard worker and a blessing to work with on a weekly basis," says Noah's drum teacher Josh Blythe. "He is always willing to try new and challenging songs and techniques. So proud of you, Noah!"
We're sad to be losing Noah after all these years, but we're also very excited for him. College awaits in the fall and then, sky's the limit.
Check out Noah performing recently with his band Dead by Dawn.
