She's the best teacher ever! I loved the entire band experience, and I was able to skip to her symphonic band in the first year, while for other classes, you couldn't skip years. She is one of the most fair teachers, has amazing musical talent, is extremely clear, very helpful, and makes sure that everyone can have an equally fun experience, no matter how musically talented they are! I'm so glad MBMS has a teacher that is literally this perfect.

Mrs. Haslop, during the time of my instruction, provided the best learning experience I have ever had in music. She is very knowledgeable and pushes students to work hard in a very good way. She by far was my favorite orchestra teacher.

She was one of the best teachers I've ever had. I hated elementary school strings but my parents wanted me to do middle school orchestra. i walked into the class completely close minded and left 3 years later with such a strong love for music and the class. her and mr haslop were so kind and funny and always made my day. I got to high school and hated high school orchestra and quit but always will have an appreciation for all the amazing memories from middle school.

She's amazing. She can be strict, but it's only because she wants to get things done. She explains things very clearly and shows really funny, enthusiastic examples. For example: "So don't play like this: DUNNNNNNN DUNNNN DAHHHHHHH" with exaggerated motions. She makes me happy to keep on playing music.

Too much of a perfectionist. We are only middle schoolers. I know she means well but she needs to understand where to draw the line. She is really nice though

She is the BEST TEACHER IN THE WORLD! anyone who doesnt like her is not good at their instraments or doesn't really care for music. I think it is very good for a middle school teacher to be able to get her students good enough to go to Sacromento& D.C.

Ms. Yeoh is a cool and nice teacher but has changed to become a better teacher (from Mr. Schwabe) which I dislike. Otherwise she has helped me a lot to become a better musician.
