Jerry Noble Percussion
Guiding young Professionals and Student Musicians into successful music careers
Turn your passion into a career
Most high school musicians know they’re great at what they do, but they don’t know how to turn it into a lifetime of making music.
I totally understand what those first steps feel like and remember that exact experience early in my career. I found trusted guides along the way to mentor and train me so my career had direction and focus.
As a teacher with real world experience, I am now guiding talented performers and educators to have viable and fulfilling careers. I am a caring, dedicated, and motivated teacher who has helped hundreds of students find their path and I remain interested and available well after my students graduate.
"Jerry doesn’t just teach music - he teaches life."
"Studying at Wright State with Jerry not only taught me how to become a better percussionist, but how to become a better person, musician, and teacher in the industry. Jerry doesn’t just teach music-he teaches life.”

“Professor Noble has a keen instinct for recognizing the skill sets of his students and developing those skills so they can blossom into sought-after professionals in the industry. So many of his students are now thriving at the highest levels of performance and education. My time studying with Professor Noble at Wright State University truly changed my life for the better.”
US Navy Bands
“Before I came to Wright State, I was lost, confused, and had no idea what I wanted in life after college. That all changed when I met Jerry Noble. I was in no way the perfect student, but he never gave up on me. His guidance and instruction helped me in more ways than I can explain.”
