WELCOME

Welcome to Troubador Studio. Our goal is to bring whatever creativity that is inside you, out into the world!

About Me.

My name is Doreen Casey. I am a mother and grandmother! I have been a creator since I was a child. I come from a very artistic family. My grandmother was a church organist, choir director and teacher. My mother was an artist and studied music as a child. My father played several instruments and made several as well. My siblings and I took music lessons as children. I continued my studies long after high school. I have been involved in many musical theatre productions both on and behind the stage. I played and sang in several bands and led award winning ensembles when I taught Elementary School. I have also directed choirs and mentored young bands. But my favourite endeavours have always involved encouraging others to share their gifts with the world. 

Education

2005-2006

Bachelor of Education

OISE/ University of Toronto

In this program, I learned classroom management skills and how to encourage students to learn by creating a safe learning environment. My focus was on Junior/Intermediate (grades 4 - 10) but there were also many opportunities to work with younger students as well as those with learning differences. After completing my degree, I went on to take courses in Special Education, Teaching FNMI Students as well as getting my "specialist" in both Instrumental Music and Orff.

1991-1995

Bachelor of Fine Arts (Hons.)

York University

My years at York were spent as a Vocal Performance Major. With a Fine Arts degree, there were also many opportunities to explore other art forms such as Visual Arts and Sculpture. I also studied several different "World Music" areas such as Kolintang (Indonesian Gongs), and Cuban Popular Music. I also began my studies in Music Pedagogy (how to teach music) with courses in Kodaly and Orff.

1985-1986

Jazz Vocal Program

Humber College of Arts and Technology

Learned Jazz Theory, sang with the Jazz Choir as well as a small ensemble. This was a performance based program so there was a lot of concerts and rehearsals.
