Instrument/Department: Music Therapist (Voice, Piano, Guitar), Expressive Arts Department
Joined Hochstein faculty in: March 2020
Casey Giordano is a Music Therapist in Hochstein’s Expressive Arts Department, and graduated Summa Cum Laude from Nazareth College of Rochester with a Bachelor of Music degree in Music Therapy with a primary instrument of voice.
Growing up, Casey sang in the St. Paul’s Cathedral Girls’ Choir in Buffalo, NY. She has worked with elders in a long-term care facility in a music therapy capacity, as well as developing and implementing a music theory class and a piano class for the elders.
Music and the arts have always been important to her. She believes them to be instrumental in expressing the full range of the human experience and finding a freedom that other outlets may not provide. One may be surprised to find out, based on her quiet demeanor, that Casey spent several years working as a Coxswain.
