Cassandra is an excellent violin teacher and I can thoroughly recommend her- my daughter really enjoyed her lessons and progressed well. A commendable focus on excellence and technique. Just sorry that Cassandra has moved away and is no longer teaching in our area!
I know Cassandra both as a teacher and a player. She is a dedicated, professional violist, and a conscientious teacher. Her students consistently gain high marks in exams, and she has turned around students who previously showed little promise. Her students all love her and work hard for her.
Cassandra is a dedicated, highly skilled and inspiring teacher. She is very patient and calm wirh a skill for bringing out the very best in her pupils ensuring they reach an excellent standard. She has developed my children’s technique and sound immeasurably and they love her teaching style and as a result have grown significantly in confidence. I can’t recommend her highly enough!
