Beautiful, moving, and memorable are just a few of the many words that describe the composition that Noreen created for my husband’s surprise anniversary gift. She ensured that it was available on paper, and in recording format to make sure it would last a lifetime.

Noreen took the time to get to know us as a couple in an effort to create a piece of music that reflects our marriage.

Noreen took the time to practice the piece with my son who played it on the violin. She even offered to accompany him…now that is service! Noreen is a truly gifted individual and an inspiration to all. Her composition brought my husband to tears and we will cherish it for years to come.
