Teaching since:
September 2010

As a professional violinist graduated from the University of Michigan, I am dedicated to making music of all forms come to life—and to sharing my passion for music, art, and the world around with as many people as possible. Having earned BMs in both Violin Performance and Music History, I believe that a holistic approach to playing the violin is crucial, and I am passionate about teaching individuals of all ages the craft of the violin while exploring the theory and history that make our art so captivating.

My own musical interests center around new music (classical works being written today) and music from the Renaissance and late Medieval time periods; the fields are more similar than one might think! I currently perform with a specialized new-music quartet and several other ensembles, working extensively with contemporary student composers and aiming to share their work throughout the Ann Arbor community.

Violin · In studio

My son had his first lesson with Cassidy today. He enjoyed his lesson. Over the years he got some bad habits. Cassidy came up with some creative exercises that helped him to improve his posture and grip. He is looking forward to his next lesson with Cassidy.

Cassidy Goldblatt is a very bright and enthusiastic teacher who offers tremendous insight into creatively effective ways of playing the violin. When I recently performed in front of her as practice for my jury, I found that her most stressed advice (for me) was to focus on elements concerning the mind, and opening up the body: things that I never considered speculating into in my past ten years of playing violin. Her specific advice turned out to be extremely helpful when playing under high stress, and I not only regret not finding her sooner, but I once again commend Cassidy on her imaginative insight and never-ending ideas on technique and musicality. Cassidy's constantly supportive and graceful demeanor were key to creating a meaningful collaboration in our time together, and would only help but inspire passion for music in her future students.
