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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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!
