Cassie was playing on pots and pans from age 4, begging her parents for a “dwum set”. They finally gave in at age 10, when they realized a child who couldn’t sit still for 5 minutes had been talking about drums for 6 years. It was love at first kit. Cassie went on to play in her school’s jazz band, in DCI style drum lines, and with bands all around Austin, TX. In high school, she spent her extra class periods at the junior high, tutoring younger percussion students. It’s no surprise that she is now part of the Mystic Drumz team, an organization that combines her love of percussion with her passion of music education.
