Ms Cahalan is an incredible conductor, an extremely nice lady & will give help you as much as she can(which is a lot). She IS tough--not a pushover by any means, but only so the orch can improve.

A very nice person, but she gets impatient very easily, and ends up wasting time scolding when a simple rebuke could have done it. I feel bad for her because she's a great musician but seems like she hates her job.

She seems like a nice person, but she's not the greatest teacher. She can be a bit dull and she's not all that enthusiastic.

She's an awesome person. As a teacher, a little uptight, a little demanding, but hey, she wants us to get better. We need to show her more respect.
