In 2000, he moved to Moscow, Idaho, and began studying at the Lionel Hampton School of Music, University of Idaho.

Courses/Ensembles that he participated in there included Jazz Band(s), Jazz Choir(s), Music Theory, Jazz Theory, Ear Training, Guitar Pedagogy, Music and Civilization, and many others. During this time, he co-founded seminal Moscow, Idaho-based band Oracle Shack, touring extensively throughout the Northwest. They have had the privilege of sharing the stage with such acts as Blues Traveler, Bernie Worrell, Taarka, Flowmotion, Eleven Eyes, Darin Schaffer, Free Peoples, and many others. Noah has also released two solo CD’s and has been teaching guitar lessons for the last 5 years. His teaching style is laid back and friendly, yet effective and supportive.
