Saskatoon Mandolin and Guitar Lessons Teacher - Kasia Thorlakson

   Kasia Leigh

"Growing up in small town Kinistino, Kasia Leigh didn't have many sources to learn how to play stringed instruments so she took up the challenge on her own. Starting at 12 years old, she has since taught herself how to play 7 instruments including the guitar, mandolin and has recently started on the banjo. Kasia is also passionate about singing and songwriting.  Her hard work allowed her to play in Saskatoon's bluegrass trio 'In With The Old' for the past 4 years, touring Canada and showcasing in the United States. She is excited to further her teaching experience and join the Prairie Songstress Music team! Kasia will be offering in-home guitar and mandolin lessons.
