Literarlly Ms Bailey is the only part of TJ that hasnt been tainted w the awful TJ culture of grades and honor code violations. There is no way a teacher can be this hilarious and kind AND create an orchestra w such great sound. You will play repertoire that most HS directors don't even bother touching cause of its difficulty. Also a great class to get rid of any anxiety/stress. Four years of orchestra is never a regret during my TJ Career.
Best orchestra director I've ever had (I've had a few). Funny and makes class something to look forward to. Her class is a great time to unwind from the stress of being at TJ.
She is hilarious.
She is one of the best teachers at TJ hands down. She understands the workload at this school and keeps that in mind when in class. You never have to practice, but always try your best in class to get an A (which is guaranteed). Her stories are hilarious as well!
Ms Bailey is the first person I've ever met where I can say "I want to be like her." She is an amazing violinist and tells THE BEST stories--I sometimes can't play because I am laughing so hard :) I haven't seen anybody else get a high school orchestra sounding this good. Very descriptive/dramatic about artistic-ness. Her orchestra class is sometimes the only thing that gets me out of bed in the mornings (ugh math/bio) She is so nice--she is incredibly talented, and yet decides to teach US!!! :)
Escape the stressful life of TJ with this wonderful class. Ms. Bailey's the best - her stories are funny, the music is great, and you get to go on trips to places like Chicago and Myrtle Beach - you really couldn't ask for more.
SHE IS SO AMAZING I LOVE HER SO MUCH SHES HILARIOUS AND NICE AND STRESS RELIEVING
THE BEST TEACHER IN THE WORLD. She is nice and funny. She has the most amusing stories.
Ms Bailey doesn't teach you how to play your instrument, there is an expectation that you are okay when you walk in. However, the music she chooses is fun and just rehearsing it helps overall. She is very nice, super funny, and a great musician herself. She is very dedicated and easy to talk to. Orchestra is the best class because of her, very stress free.
Ms. Bailey exceeds at many things except helping out her double bass and cello sections, she never taught us a single thing and expected us to get by without the hours that she would spend with violins, however her stories are very fun and nice to hear.
so basically... she relieves you of tj stress, and gives you a reason to enjoy school.
What a boss. Need I say more? You learn about music even when it's not necessary, and she makes it a lot of fun.
Love her. Orch is amazing and we're always laughing or joking around about something.
I LOVE MRS. BAILEY!!!!!!!!!! She is hilarious, an amazing violinist, knows soooo much about music, and is extremely kind. Not just a teacher, but a true friend. I don't know how I survived w/o her.
Best orchestra teacher ever. Not only is her class hilarious and fun, but she really knows music and I improved a lot in her class. She doesn't get mad easily or often, but don't try to get her angry.
best teacher ever make sure to stay on her gd side and it will b the best class ever period. and if u can get an A here quit life
ms bailey is the best! she is soooo nice. her class is the best part of blue days.
love her stories. can't wait until i go back to orchestra next year
Ms. Bailey is the funniest teacher ever!!! I love her stories. :)
her stories are so funny one time I was laughing so hard I couldn't even hold my violin.
Mrs. Bailey is the nicest teacher I have ever had in my entire life. I don't care what anyone says, but she is such a kind, charismatic person who actually cares about her students unlike most teache
People take classes over all of their high school summers just to be able to graduate from TJ and take her class. I understand why and I'm happy I'm going to be one of those people. Amazing teacher!
Best teacher in the world. She's extremely funny, amazing violinist, and class is so fun! You get study hall sometimes which is good, and as long as you show up, you have an A pretty much.
Really nice and loves to share her funny stories. Great teacher and always really helpful.
Mrs. Bailey is the best teacher I've ever had...ever...especially for an orchestra teacher.
Just look at all the ratings to see how great she is. Ok, seating IS iffy, but it doesnt matter: everyone is treated the same. I would rather be in the back and have her than any other teacher.
Ms. Bailey = amazing! She's hilarious (her stories make you cry with laughter), she's a fantastic violinist, and I've never seen her mad. Orch is way easy; consider it a free, unstressful class.
Ms. Bailey is the funniest person alive! she should seriously be a stand-up comedian. She makes me laugh everyday til my stomach hurts.
The level of the music in Orchestra is fine. The seating is mostly bogus. She seems to value "sucking up" over skill. She is a nice lady, but the way in which she runs her class is disappointing.
She inspires people to work hard and give their best and to deliver an awesome performance. The whole year, it was my favorite class, and there was never a bad day. She picks music according to her students' preferences and is reasonable and sympathetic, if not able to be as accomidating as you may wish, when a tough time comes. She's a wonderful person with a heart full of gold whom I've never seen mad. Makes two years of summer school, no second language, and one less AP totally worth it!
she's so nice! she can get you to wake up even if you have her the first thing in the morning! and the stories really do help...at least to keep morale up if nothing else.
ms. bailey is an amazing person. she makes orchestra so fun! her class cheers me up everyday :)
hey..i played viola at hayfield, and even though we (finally) have a great teacher now, no one will EVER beat ms. bailey. dont take her for granted :-)
Amazing. She explains how to play music through her stories.
This woman is INCREDIBLE. hilarious, helpful, and after 2 semesters with her any orchesta sounds great!
SHE'S THE BEST TEACHER EVER =) She's hilarious (her tom cruise laugh..haha..and dr. beat). She was a better conductor than this year's sr. regional conductor.
She's fun and nice, but still somehow refuses to actually teach her lower-level orchestras to a ridiculous degree. No real seating except in top orchestra.
She's a great musician and an inspiring conductor. She makes you want to play well, and tells great stories.
Fantastic musician. Great for us band folks to work with.
no one should EVER dare to insult ms bailey! SHE IS THE BEST TECHER IN THE WORLD! :)
Loved her stories and her personality. Great for any level of talent.
mrs bailey is the funniest/coolest teacher everr!! shes just like mr. haza.. ^^

she doesnt need a triangle to woo anyone..forte bon bon piano wipey
The /best/ orchestra teacher I've ever had! Ms. Bailey's the greatest!
Innovative, exciting, refreshing, intelligent,knowledgable,leader,cooperative,fu
Treats band people well for Symphonic Orch. Very enthusiastic. High quality!
