Mike Hartman - Dreams Do Come True 10/26/2014
I just recently turned 60. I have had a life long dream to be able to sing. When I started with Cassandra, I literally could only sing 3 notes. I just learned my first song. I could not be more pleased. Cassandra's teaching style is an eclectic mix. She has lots of tricks. She has an unbelievable understanding of the mechanics of voice and she is a very skilled musician. Cassandra combines a perfect mix of encouragement and tough love. I could not be happier with my decision to take lessons from Cassandra.
Katelin Stack - Wonderful! 7/31/2014
I took my first voice lesson ever yesterday with Alayna and she made me feel comfortable being in my own skin and hearing my voice for the first time. I am excited for my next lesson and many more to come!
Debbie Firak - Cassandra's a gem! 2/27/2014
Just signed up for the 12 lesson package! Cassandra is passionate and truly inspirational. She's able to quickly identify areas that need improvement (and works on helping you fix these). Yet, she's also warm and encouraging, helping you see & appreciate your own strengths. I'm excited to be beginning my new journey!
Silvana Cantagallo - Boy did I get my money's worth! 1/19/2014
I had my first voice lesson with Cassandra yesterday. It was not only fun, little light bulbs went off all over the place and I had several AHA! moments. I had taken voice lessons from one other teacher in the past, and while it was productive, I was not inspired as I was with Cassandra. I'm such a beginner that I don't even know what questions to ask! Cassandra explained things I didn't think to ask. Love her!
Tanya Pfeiffer- Cassandra's genius lies in her teaching style....5/4/2013
Cassandra has been teaching our 13 year old daughter to sing for just under a year now. Cassandra's passion, talent and fervor for music is evident in every session. Not only is she an extremely talented musician and vocalist herself, (we love her album!) I believe her genius lies in her teaching style and approach with people. Every time Emma picks up a mic to practice or perform I can honestly say I think of Cassandra and what a blessing she has been for Emma. Cassandra, YOU ROCK!
Karen Tirio - Public Speaking training 4/9/2013

Tim Merkel - Cassandra is professional, prepared and passionate 11/20/2012
I've been to a lot of Songwriter events in my career. This was fun, just the right length and full of thought provoking, practical content. And I may have got a 35 year old unfinished song of the dime!!!

artist. I would highly recommend Cassandra, a highly motivated, passionate vocal coach that will also assist you in development of

"As a vocalist in a rock band, Cassandra used her skills and knowledge as a professional singer to coach me along with my singing ability. Over a period of a year, each week Cassandra trained me to work
on vocal exercises and songs that challenged my range and style. Practicing her exercises and techniques helped me to develop my voice to a level that I am very happy with and made me a better singer today. I would not hesitate to call on Cassandra for her services in the future."

In each instance her musicianship and creativity has shone through. She is very supportive of her students."
Cindi Carrigan -Owner/Operator at Carrigan Design
"I started working with Cassandra in 1993, a frustrated church choir member with no sense of rhythm and no sense of the
range my voice could achieve. Cassandra's methods not only made it possible to hit higher, truer notes, she improved my vocal skills to the extent that I was able to secure roles in several local musicals and as a compensated soloist in both classical and contemporary venues. I would highly recommend her to anyone serious about
improving their vocal skills"
"Cassandra is a professional songwriter, pianist, guitarist and singer and teacher as well as an experienced and talented
Vocal coach who helped me tap more of my vocal instrument than
I knew was available. I am proud to have been a student, to be a friend and to highly recommend Cassandra's expert services."
