Roger Noon, Vice President

I live in England in the small city of St Albans, a few miles north of London. Professionally, I started out as an electrical engineer, managing military aviation projects and I am now an executive coach and consultant in culture change. We have a thriving tai chi community in St Albans and I became an apprentice in the mid-noughties. I served previously on the TCF Board from 2008 to 2011, contributing in particular, to the development of TCF’s strategy and vision. It has been a privilege being part of both the global and local tai chi family and I look forward to many more years of learning and teaching.

Ten years ago I took my first T’ai Chi class in Dublin, Ireland where I live with my husband and children. I traveled to Dorset in the UK for my B1 apprenticeship in 2010 and have been teaching classes every week since.

This year I was fortunate to celebrate a decade of life-changing T’ai Chi by attending winter trainings in Amsterdam & New York, as well as teaching at a weekend workshop in Austria. This was a dream come true!

After coming to New York City in 1974 to attend Manhattan School of Music, I’ve been a professional musician in the area since then. I’ve performed in many styles of music, from symphony orchestras to brass quintets, Broadway musicals, dance bands and everything in between. I’ve been fortunate to tour across the U.S. and in ...
