Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I have experience teaching flute lessons to everyone from ages 5 to adult and from complete beginners to aspiring professionals. My students have won local competitions and been admitted to the music programs at universities such as UNT. I like to make sure that each student's practice comes from a place of mutual respect and understanding and I emphasize clear communication in practice expectations as well as when explaining playing concepts. I am a patient teacher and questions are encouraged!

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.

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!
