I’ve never really liked Mrs. Bassuk. She didn’t really care much for my section, and always picked out songs too easy for our band level. She wasn’t the best director for the plays and musicals, and gave the cast an example of under appreciating the backstage guys. Also, I saw her having another student use my bass clarinet and a reed I had already started to use for a sixth grader.

To explain the plays: The eigth graders get main parts cuz its their last year in the skool, plus. The sixth graders have 2 more chances. NEEDS TO SLOW DOWN!

Ok, Ms. Bassuk. Tip: PLEASE talk slower. You confuse us so much when you talk fast. But otherwise; Don't be upset to have her next year! She's much cooler.
