Ms. Daniele is the best!!
Committed to the community and education, Kassandra has performed at nursing homes in the Quad City area, as well as teaching private lessons to piano and oboe students of all ages. Kassandra believes that by providing music to the community in ways that are easily accessible, she can share her love of music with others. During her time in college, Kassandra worked closely with composers such as Jim Stephenson and Matthew Maslanka. With her colleagues at Western Illinois University, she is heard in Maslanka's “River of Time” and Stephenson's “Walk Slowly”. Recordings of these works are available on Naxos, Spotify, and other streaming services. Her experience as an oboist with the Illinois Ambassadors of Music tour truly solidified her passion for music. On this tour, she played in London, England; Crans-Montana, Switzerland; Seefeld, Austria; and Rothenburg, Germany. Kassandra completed her undergraduate degree at Western Illinois University studying under Rebecca McGuire.
