Bio: Little Cassy had to be gently nudged into music. At age 5 she started piano (how original) and hated it for 7 years. But once in a while, she re-discovered the joy of playing music.
In 5th grade, Cassy’s mother wanted her to do band, so she chose percussion because she thought it would be an easy transition from piano... Growing up, one of her favorite father-daughter bonding activities was watching taiko, and her dad's affinity for taiko eventually rubbed off on her after watching Kodo at Zellerbach Hall.
When she got to Cornell, it took just one YT video (Gaifuu, PULSE 2018) for Cassy to resolve to try out. Since then, she’s walked and talked many late nights away, bled, sweated, and teared up for YMT, thrown (and dropped) countless sticks, made friends who don't know they're stuck with her for life, and played some drums (with her feet). She looks forward to making more mems.
