About Getachew M. Kassa

getachew300About Getachew M. Kassa

I have been working in the field of music education for over 25 years in the United States and Ethiopia. I have a strong educational background. I have a Master of Fine Arts degree and a Degree of Perfection.

The Mind Institute certifies me to teach their music & math program. In addition I have a site supervisor permit from the California State Commission on Teacher Credentialing in child development.

My personal philosophy has evolved through my involvement in music education, teaching in private and public institutions, teaching typically developing children and individuals with special needs from 3 years to adulthood.

My goal as a music teacher is to equip each child with skills leading to meaningful musical performance and discriminating listening.
Children will participate in an annual recital.
