I saw her personally play the violin as demonstration (she's so good!!!) she will teach the entire class but not you specifically unless you're visibly struggling. She does play favorites but only because they're pros and they're models.

Joined her Intermediate Orchestra class in the middle of junior year with no knowledge on notes, instruments or whatsoever - just because it fit my schedule and I wanted to learn to play the cello. Taught me how to play the cello in less than a year and sat third seat in Intermediate and fifth in Concert - if she sees you trying hard enough, she'll drill you like no tomorrow. Didn't have time to teach me during her free periods but made sure I understood what I was doing at all times.

Honestly, Lapierre was the best goddamn teacher I've ever had. i just finished my freshman year with her and it was amazing. She's SUPER chill. I walked in 30 min late in her 1st period class because of train BS and her exact response was, "Oh sweet, you're here! Grab your instrument and start playing!" She's a really nice teacher in general and her class (if you pay attention) is an easy 97-100 which is a great boost for your GPA if you're struggling. I would recommend her for any freshman!!!!!

Might as well give up on life if you fail her class. She is mad chill and she practically lets you do anything (eat/sleep/text). She lets you stay if you're cutting, just don't let it become a habit. If you don't understand how to play you're piece, take responsibility and come up during her free periods or after school. Her class alone makes it worth coming to school everyday.

Makes learning fun, even seems easy. Cool teacher. Funny but serious about her class. Don't talk when shes talking. Lets you go pick up lunch if you have no lunch period. Don't cut or you'll be kicked out. She loves music, and she'll help you til you learn your part. I like when she plays for the class.

Love her! Awesome teacher out of the whole building - Allows us to eat food (since we don't have lunch) and we can study for finals in her class. You can relax sometimes or do your other class's homework in her class. But most people play the instruments, and she's a great musician. Really nice! A++++ <3
