Casey Loudin received her Master’s in Music with an emphasis in Piano Pedagogy from the University of Denver, Lamont School of Music in Spring of 2020 and obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree with an emphasis in Piano Pedagogy from the University of Alabama in Huntsville in Spring of 2018. Her desire to complete these two degrees has been driven by the philosophy that being a piano teacher begins with teaching people followed by sharing the joy of making music.
Casey has been teaching since 2015 and is very grateful for the teaching opportunities given to her thus far. Throughout her years of being a full time student, she started a music studio in Huntsville, AL through a private elementary school. Students in her studio enjoyed multiple recitals, a personalized curriculum and group classes. While a student at the University of Denver, she was a teacher in the Piano Prep Program and taught group and private classes for younger students as well as Recreational Music Making classes which was geared towards beginning adult students. She also worked as a Graduate Teaching Assistant for DU and taught a piano course that included an individualized curriculum for each college student registered for her course. Now, as a resident of Huntsville, AL with a completed Master’s of Music degree, she is excited to grow her piano studio and help students of all ages discover the joy of music.
Casey has been given the opportunity to perform in master classes that featured solo and duet works along with performing a solo recital in both her undergraduate and graduate degrees. She also received 2nd place in the UAH music department scholarship competition and was selected as the winner for the Huntsville Music Study Club Collegiate Competition. Along with these performances, she was one of the pianists chosen in Huntsville, AL to debut new piano compositions by Eugenie Rocherolle. To finish off her undergraduate degree, she was asked to perform with a colleague at the UAH Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences honors awards.
Casey has given many professional presentations with her colleagues at music conferences. Some of which include presenting at the Music Teacher National Association Collegiate Symposium in 2017 and 2018, the Colorado Music Teacher Association Conference in 2019, the National Conference on Keyboard Pedagogy in 2019 and The University of Alabama in Huntsville in 2023. Topics from these conferences include music technology in piano lessons, how to incorporate mindfulness with piano and games teachers can include in students lessons to introduce and reinforce musical concepts.
