Though she can be quite strict, she is an extremely knowledge and helpful teacher. She is honestly the best theory teacher ice ever had.
READ THIS!! Ms. Bishop is one of the wisest and most intelligent, knowledgeable, and fair teachers Ive ever had in my life. Her passion and respect for the arts is inspiring. If you don't like her it's because you talk a lot are rude/distracting and you don't focus or prepare for class. She doesn't have favorites; the only people she may "favor" are the ones who clearly listen and give 100% all the time. If you respect her she will do reciprocate fairly and honestly. She will truly TEACH you.
amazing teacher. explains everything so well. extremely nice and caring. people complain about her but it isn't her fault they aren;t paying attention and get yelled at.
MsBishop needs to know that a healthy student-teacher relationship is important. She gives no respect to any of her students in class. Meanwhile, on my behalf; I know that everything I've done, I did in attempt to please her. She needs to know that her 'method of teaching' does not work for every student. We are all different. She can't keep using "it's my way of teaching" as an excuse to justify a child's anxiety, thanks to her. In class I'm distracted by HER and just scared to just be there.
Ms. Bishop is one of my favorite teachers in the vocal department. I learned so much in Music Theory. She wrote me incredible letters of recommendation for my summer programs (all of which I got into). She is so passionate about what she does. She has taught so many different subjects like math, history, english, etc. She is amazingly understanding. She let me go home early on finals day because I had awful cramps! She may seem scary at first but she is just trying to get respect. Give it to her
Ms. Bishop is an AMAZING teacher she taught my daughter for two years, for three hours a day and my daughter loves her so much!!!! So lucky to have had her in our lives!
Honestly, when I was in my freshman year at LaGuardia I didn't believe all of the miss Bishop horror stories. But now that I am a sophomore and in the girls chorus class she teaches, I see how cruel she is. Today she berated a girl needlessly, exploiting her in front of 100 other girls. I felt horrible. I am afraid to interact with her due to her unpredictable discipline method. She truly sucks. I wish I could leave her class. She is the only music teacher I have ever had that I really hated.
Ms. Bishop is the bomb! She can be strict if you don't listen, but other than that she's a very good teacher! I had her for Sight Singing and my overall average was a 97 in that class, she's willing to help whenever and explains things you don't understand.
Although Ms. Bishop may seem strict and a bit intimidating, she is a wonderful teacher. Before her class, i knew little about the fundamentals of music. After a few months i was scoring almost perfectly on tests. I have so much respect for Ms. Bishop after taking her class and being a part of her chorus for a year. She is clearly a woman who is passionate about music and knows precisely what she is doing.
A lot of the girls in my sight singing class already had some experience, and I knew nothing. I sat in the front so she could see everything I got wrong. I know she hates me now and she is going to blackball me throughout high school. I get good gras on tests and I practice what I have to. The only thing I can't get down are some of the dictations and things other people need to play for myself to study, and I can't do that on my own. She makes me want to transfer out of the school.
She is an incredible teacher. I had Mr. Kevin Blancq last year for sight singing and learned nothing. She helped me catch up and was very understanding. I love her. She may not be the easiest teacher but she's passionate and incredibly knowledgable
I love Ms.Bishop! she is a great musician and by far one of the most amazing music theory teachers in lag. She may be tough but she wants us to succeed.
Ms. Bishop is an amazing teacher she is not afraid to hurt your feelings and she can be a litte mean but she works so hard and is so commited. At the same time she understands that we don't have all the time in the world for music and understands if we cannot really practice. What she will expect is for you to work hard when your at school. She understands us and what it's like to be in high school.
I understand what people have said so far about Ms.Bishop and I agree with parts of it, like that she is clear and knows what she's talking about however there are major parts of the way that she teaches that I don't agree with at all. I have had her for sight singing and chorus and honestly I just don't know why but she dislikes me as much as she does. I work hard in her class although admittedly counting numbers and solfege do not come easily to me. She is not a "fair" teacher like people say.
Ms. Bishop can be rough around the edges. Sometimes I can be sensitive and negatively react to her tough criticism, but I really enjoy how helpful she is towards how I am as a performer and her knowledge of music.
shes scrict but if you really pay attention and try hard she is wonderful and you will learn so much
She's absolutely amazing. If you have her, you will learn so much. Just try, and don't misbehave in her class, and she'll love you back. Guaranteed.
love love love Ms.Bishop! Best teacher I've ever had, and so sweet if you behave in her class
Ms. Bishop is actually the greatest woman ever. She is an amazing teacher
The sweetest woman alive, you will learn SO much in her class and you will love every second of it if you put your mind to appreciate what you are learning!
Ms.Bishop is great! She can be strict but if you behave in her class she's really nice. She's also the most helpful voice teacher I've had so far, and makes everything she's teaching you very clear and easy to understand. I love her and her class!
love love love love love her! i have her for two classes this year, she's amazing. She's a great voice teacher and she's so passionate in chorus it makes you want to sing well for her. <3 <3 <3 She's also usually really fair- even if someone she really likes is doing something bad she'll tell them and correct it.
She's got a lot of spunk. She's has great control with the class, and he really knows how to teach. She's the real deal!!! Love u Ms.Bishop!!!
I dont understand why ppl dont like her..she is a great teacher and she will love u too if u dont disrespect her rules..i love this woman..she could be a little strict but only towards "bad" kids
Compared to "unmentionable" s.s teachers Bishop is amazing. I learned so much rhythm and now i love it. I still don't like dictations, and she's scares me a little but you learn alot. I get conducting
Can be really mean at some points but thats just the way she is. WONDERFUL conductor and voice teacher. She should chill with IPA though. I LOVE HER.
Ms. Bishop is AMAZING!!! The people who don't like her are the ones who don't do homework and don't study, and they get mad that she gives them bad grades. But she is a very fair teacher and amazing musician, and I've learned so much in EVERY SINGLE CLASS I've had her in. SHES AWESOME!!!
i love ms bishop. yeah, she's scary, but ignore that. do really well and she wont bother you. she's the best teacher for theory, voice, chorus, anything. she'll help you excel in all of your music classes
I love bishop. Her sight singing class really helps me..alot. She tries to help the other students as much as possible. Just get on her good side or she'll have a shorter temper on others.=]
She was my absolute favorite vocal teacher thus far. I have learned so much. She is tough, but cares so much about making her students better musicians. All I can say is, if you get her, make sure you work hard. If you do, she'll love you and you'll love her.
Bishop is one of the coolest people in the school. Listen and Learn, even tho she can be a little irritating, and a little jumpy at times and yea. hahaha My advice is, dont give her attitude. She knows a lot and will teach really well if you just listen.
Haha, open your mouth! make the right vowels! My Bishop impersonation. She's good, but she's also sooo eccentric. Also, not letting us leave once we're in the room to use the bathroom or go to the nurse is just inhumane.
Ms. Bishop can be quite excentric some of the time, well okay, most of the time. but she is a great choir and voice teacher. Just participate and you'll do good
She does definitely grow on you..She has had a major impact in my career as a musician..Extremely talented
Ms Bishop is one of the best music teachers in the whole school and even though you might not want to admit it, you learn a lot
I agree if you do your job she has no reason to be mean or nasty or whatever you wanna call it. She is truly representing for the females in the vocal dep.
Rough around the edges but quite possibly the best of the best. This is the voice teacher I learned the most from. Thanks : D
She's nice sometimes but she can also be mean. What is up with that whistle?
Great voice teacher - you're especially lucky if you get her for German. She's also quite the hippie!!
ms bishop is a very nice lady. she's only mean if you're late, chew gum, or talk. you know, basic school rules. she's better at choir teaching than solo voice.
ms. bishop is one of the greatest teachers you could possibly get when it comes to vocal music training. just do her work, and you're set to go.
I did all my work for Ms. Bishops theory 3 class... She was the first theory teacher that gave me an 85...what happened to my 96's? Ms. Bishop: you suck!!!
She is the best teacher I've ever had in my life. When I grow up I want to be just like her.Strong,intelligent trustworthy.Maybe one day we will all be like her
The only people that have a problem with Ms. Bishop are the people that don't do the work and are never prepared. She's a very fair teacher and very helpful.
