Ms. Pasquale is very nice to us. She's really funny and likes to talk. Overall, she is very helpful and she is always in your favor. You also can do lots of make-ups for assignments such as passoffs. She gives out neat and cool perks. How you get them, you'll have to find out. Celery is good for you.

Always plays favorites and is pretty passive-aggressive. Always loves the flutes, and basically doesn't know your name if you're not a prodigy (she probably didn't say more than 20 words to me in a year). Tries too hard to be funny, but she's a decent teacher.

She is an amazing band director and I really enjoyed having her for all three years. When we audition for any type of ensemble, she is always there to help us prepare and calm us down if we are feeling nervous. Overall, she is funny, nice, and I love her. Thank you Ms. Pasquale fore such a wonder band time for three years!

Great orchestra and band director, and she really helps us become our best. I don't like the amount of tension with the seating, but maybe that's not her fault. The students are very competitive. But I also think she could be less passive aggressive and less goal-oriented.

She's nice but sometimes she picks on people a little if they don't get things right away and she favors flutes.

Thanks to Ms. Pasquale I improved a lot. I went from being able to play hot crossed buns to being able to stage read a complex version of "sing, sing, sing" or "terracotta". Her humor and funny stories each class always made us laugh. She's also very forgiving and can talk to you one-on-one to make sure you understand everything you need to. So glad I took her class.

Mrs. Pasquale. Many people may have different opinions and I get that, not all people like the same types of people, but I can say she is extremely fair. She also makes band class more fun then just playing music. We've done a music project and she tells funny stories, and not all teachers are able to create a long-lasting bond that she has. Her teaching and testing methods are really great . It is easy to get an A in her class as long as you practice and don't act dumb in class.

She's pretty cool, but has an overinflated ego. She thinks she's funny, but she really isn't all too hysterical. I'll tell you what, though, she knows her stuff better than anyone.

In Advanced Orchestra, since most of the students are 8th graders, we're all expected to know everything but a lot of times I'm confused.
