- Teaches students:
- Ages 5+ and special needs
- Teaching since:
I am an active teacher and performer newly returned to the Seattle area after a decade away. I have a BM from the University of Oregon and an MM from the University of North Texas, both concentrated in flute performance.
I recently spent three years in Texas and had a studio of 35 middle and high school flutists who under my tutelage improved their skills, gained new appreciation for music, won local competitions (one received a brand new professional flute for her award!) and one received an offer to attend UNT to study music for their undergraduate degree.
I also pursue an active playing career, but I am especially focused on teaching. More information and links to my playing can be found at www.cassielear.com
Note for summer 2017: I am spending two months in Italy playing operas and, while I am very excited to respond to your message, may not be as available as usual. Lessons will begin again in mid August and if you found this profile as a new student, I am very excited about fitting you in!

The primary objective of the Society is the recognition and encouragement of the highest level of musical achievement and academic scholarship.

Cassie is a wonderful musician and teacher! She is incredibly knowledgeable both about physically playing the flute as well as style, musicianship, and history. You will learn so much about flute playing and music from her!
I loved Cassie! She taught me new pieces of music each week and it was like a private extension to band class but better! It took a while to find her but when we did I was so happy. She is amazing!
Cassie was a wonderful teacher for my daughter. She was flexible, challenging and encouraging!
