Overview

Hey everyone! I am so excited that you are thinking about taking piano lessons! Here is a little bit about me: I graduated with a Bachelors from Oregon State University in Piano Performance and accompanied vocalists, instrumentalists, choirs, and musicals during that time. As the former pianist for the Oregon State Wind Ensemble, I have toured around different places in Oregon, Hawaii, and Japan. I am currently working with vocalists at Portland State University and teach piano lessons at a professional music studio in Tigard, OR (Oregon Music Academy), in addition to my home studio. All of the traveling I have done and all of the amazing people I have met are all because of the amazing musical community! Come be a part of this awesome world of music!

I am a very relaxed and enthusiastic person. I believe the best learning environment is one that allows the student to have fun and enjoy playing piano, while also providing a high level of teaching. All of my lessons are tailored to each individual student in order to maximize the effectiveness of each lesson. My curriculum is based on Alfred and Faber and Faber Piano Adventures, while using a wide variety of supplementary materials that sparks the students' interest. Playing the piano is fun, so let's make learning how to play it as enjoyable as possible!

As a performer myself, I can help with some anxiety you may have about performing in front of your peers.

I am currently teaching at the Oregon Music Academy in Tigard, Oregon on Monday afternoons. They have allowed me to grow even further in my ability to connect with students and teach them in a way that allows them to grow them most both in their ability and their love for playing the piano.

Accompanist

Being a good accompanist takes a specific kind of person. You have to love working with every kind of person, have patience, and be able to play a wide variety of music. After professionally accompanying for over eight years, I have learned to work with every kind of person out there and can't wait to start working with you!

I was interested in learning how to play the piano but didn't have any prior experience. Cassie gave me great instruction while giving me room to learn on my own. She is very kind and EXTREMELY talented! I'd recommend her for all ages and skill levels.

Cassie is a wonderful pianist and very, very friendly! She is a wonderful teacher, who is patient, instructive, and knowledgable. I've known her for many years and you couldn't ask for a better person to teach you piano!

Cassie is extremely professional and fun to work with. She is always prepared for each lesson with new and interesting material! I feel that my progression with piano is much faster with her than with other instructors. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to learn piano.
