mrs. zirpolo is by far one of the best teachers I've ever had. not only have I gone from knowing nothing about music to being able to understand musical aspects with ease, but I have also gained life knowledge. she gives GREAT advice about things and is helpful in situations you may be going through. she is also a relaxed teacher. she understands her students. I'd definitely recommend taking a class with her or even just talking with her.
i'm taking cp music theory right now and she's great. she knows a lot and is an awesome pianist. great at explaining things and teaches piano. she's also pretty chill and will let you talk during class and eat. i would definitely recommend this class for anyone who wants to try music/learn more about composition & technical aspects of music!
Good teacher, I learned a lot about music theory. She cares a lot about her students and their success. Doesn't have that much of a sense of humor but she's very kind and informative.
She's a really nice and a really fair Chorus teacher she lets you do w/e u want within reason
shes nice, but shes not a good chorus teacher. i like mrs. alteri better =)
She is an awesome teacher and very easy to get along with, but she can't control our class
liked being in chorus (9, 10, cc, cc then dropped) she wasnt selective enough in concert choir though. great personality though
Im in frshmn chourus and pple need to act like frshmns..c'mon some of ur so immature..needs to be more selective in CC tho..i feel like they rnt even auditions.
Excellent teacher...u dont know wut ur sayin if u think she doesnt know what shes doing,give her a break-shes only human and wouldnt yell if ppl acted their age
I think that chorus would be better if kids would act like they were in high school and not pre-school. She threw them out in the 2nd half of the year, not 1st
concert choir is too big, its supposed to be select group of talented singers, she cant play piano,messes us up to much,concert choir challenge us!
SHE IS SO MEAN AND NEVER STOPS YELLING!!!!!!!!! THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THAT!! TALK ABOUT ATTIUDE PROBLEM!!!
Wow. Honestly, she knows nothing about voice. Excellent pianist though. She needs to go teach that instead of voice. She uses wrong technique, terms, etc.
Picks music that doesnt challenge us or teach us anything useful. Show tunez dont get us ready for allstate or college even if they seem cool. Challenge us pls!
She really needs to get better control of the talkers and do a better vocal test. It dosen't even test our range and now I'm in the way wrong part on two songs
Mrs. Zirpolo is a nice teacher but her interpretations of the meanings of songs and shows need to be more accurate. She's really a great person though.
...whats with the props? Isn't this a high school? She's very sweet and nice and all - but come on!!! We need a better music program in general
She's a good choral director, but picks the most god awful music to perform. Seriously - Surfin USA? Come on. Not to mention, concert choir is entirely too big
Super nice lady,but for reasons unknown,concert choir is bigger than chorus and freshmen chorus combined. What happened to selectivity?
She is just a horrid teacher. I dropped out of chorus b/c of her. I had way better teachers and choirs at my other schools. Just not a good teacher.
Concert Choir is so much fun but she needs to get more control of the class~ Shes really sweet tho and luv having her as my tchr~
The fact that we spend 5 days a week in that class and accomplish so LITTLE musically is tragic.Needs to push us to do more and not let so many into Con. choir!
i love allison she is my cousin!!! b nice she's the best
shes not all there sometimes but shes really nice n easy to get along with
