Cassie has been teaching private piano lessons for the past five years. I graduated from the University of Missouri- Kansas City Music Conservatory in 2008. I love working with children. and helping them grow in their love for music.
I currently teach private students and direct a community orchestra.
I began my musical journey in Shreveport, Louisiana at the age of 10 when I started taking piano lessons. In Middle School, the piano was replaced with the flute which soon became my greatest passion. By the time I was only 14 years old I was already performing for various festivals and private receptions in the Shreveport area. After High School, I continued my musical career with a music scholarship to Centenary College of Lousiana where I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Instrumental Music Education. In college I studied the flute as well as other instruments such as piano, oboe, and percussion. On flute, I continued to perform all over the town as well as in many of the College ensembles such as the Wind Ensemble, Percussion Ensemble, Chamber Winds, and Orchestra. I was also asked to perform with the Shreveport Symphony and travelled across the border to perform with the National Symphony Orchestra of Mexico. I also became a two-time winner of the annual Centenary College Concerto Competition. I then began teaching private lessons while in College. After College, I went on to teach music in public schools. Before coming to Colorado Springs I was a Middle School Band Director in Houston, Texas for 10 years, where I established myself as one of the most dedicated band directors in the district. I continue to play and perform music on flute as well as piano in a variety of settings. I have been teaching flute privately for 2 years since I have been in Colorado.
I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado in May 2013 with a degree in jazz studies. While at UNC I studied jazz music as well as classical music. I'm very excited about teaching beginning and intermediate improvisers my own systematic approach to jazz improvisation. I'm also excited about teaching saxophone technique to beginning and intermediate saxophonists.
I'm a passionate musician that absolutely loves to teach music. I began playing piano at the young age of four. I believe starting at such a young age is so important as kids are sponges! Of course, it is NEVER too late to start. :) Piano has always been my main instrument, that was until I entered the fifth grade. There I was introduced to ALL kinds of band instruments including the alto saxophone! It is one of the best instruments, in my opinion, to express the music, especially with jazz. Starting off with the piano as my first instrument, I have seen the difference it has made when it came to picking up other instruments. I was taught, "If you can play the piano, you can play ANY instrument", and boy were they right!! Being able to play the piano, I was able to easily pick up the accordian, clarinet, violin, flute, guitar, and even percussion. Though I am not proficient in these instruments (since I never practiced them), I was able to play them fairly easily thanks to the piano. Music is so important in a child's life! Not only does it keep kids focused in practicing and performing, it keeps them focused in school. Believe it or not, music truely does make you smarter!! If you are interested in what I do and teach, just let me know! I would love to get to know you and your child!!

I would like to thank Polina for the series of classical piano lessons I've taken recently. Polina is a fantastic teacher and a high class performer, and I'm really happy I had a chance to meet her! I believe anyone can benefit from the teaching method Polina is practicing regardless of the student proficiency - from beginners to advanced performers. It was a pleasure for me to study classical piano courses under the guidance of such an intelligent & professional teacher! Without doubt, my playing technique has improved a lot and I have signed up for the new classes online already.

Karleen has really turned it around for me. My previous teacher (not from Musika) had me feeling anxious, upset, and incapable...NOT the desired result! Karleen's method is clear, appropriate for my beginning level, and (best of all) actually lets me achieve some progress! I'm actually looking forward to my lessons now!

Rahsaan is an extremely talented player who relates really well with my teenagers. He has them both interested in learning. Given Rahsaan's expertise, it's clear that even though they are beginners now, they can learn from him for a long time to come. He's a real nice laid-back guy and both the boys really enjoy their time with him. I've been very impressed and pleased with the experience.

Kevin is very friendly and professional trombone teacher. During the first session he assessed my 12 year old son's strengths and identified areas for development. He has helped him refine his technique which helps our son in band class but also has him working on duets that help him grow in new ways. He comes to our home and is always very punctual. I would highly recommend Kevin!

Henry is teaching my daughter how to play piano. Henry is an excellent teacher, we really like and appreciate him. His teaching style works very well for my daughter, she is comfortable which makes learning enjoyable. Henry is very patient and I can see that he is passionate about teaching music. Great teacher for sure.
Review by Mythili Lahiri
My son is truly enjoying his lessons with Chris. He looks forward to them and is motivated to practice. Chris is conscientious and shows up on time and whenever he is supposed to. He communicates clearly if rescheduling is ever required and is accommodating when we need to change the day. I would recommend Chris to anyone.
Review by Dylan Jacinto
Jessie is the finest musician I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. I find her overall concept of approaching an instrument to be both comprehensive and effective. Each technique she has acquired has made it possible for her to tailor her method to a variety of ages and individuals. I cannot speak more highly of Miss Jessie's abilities. Her lengthy and impressive cradecials speak for themselves. I recommend no hesitation in seeking her services!
Review by Jennifer
Dave is a fantastic teacher. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to students that I think is invaluable. At the same time, this does not limit him from working with beginning students. He is very communicative with the parents as far as schedule changes. We are so grateful to have found him!!

Vince is a great drum teacher for my 8 year old son. We go to his house where he has a studio setup with a huge drum set. He has been very patient but really holds my son responsible for learning the right way to play. After about 5 lessons, my son is playing some rhythms on the drums and reading music. He looks forward to his lessons with Vince.
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
