Film Composer | Violinist

Home: Welcome


Cassiel is a film composer and violinist currently pursuing a masters degree in Music Theory and Composition: Screen Scoring at NYU Steinhardt ('23).

Cassiel has written for several award winning short films and animations, and likes to place a heavy emphasis on thematic string writing in the bulk of her work. She holds a Professional Certificate in Composing and Orchestrating for TV and Film from Berklee College of Music and is currently in her third graduate semester at NYU, where she studies composition with Jamie Lawrence and Ariel Marx. Cassiel was recently chosen as a 2022-2023 mentee in the Society of Composers and Lyricists' New York Mentorship Program.

A classically trained violinist, Cassiel began playing at the age of four and attended the Colburn School of Performing Arts prior to her undergraduate studies at Northwestern University's Bienen School of Music with Blair Milton. Here, she was a selected member of the Northwestern University Symphony Orchestra's Asia Tour of 2018 and found a love for performing in the pit orchestras of musical theatre shows. 

Outside of her studies, Cassiel spends much of her time working with nonprofit groups focused on bridging the arts education gap. In her free time, Cassiel enjoys cooking, hiking, and spending time with her friends and dog, Luna.
