Ms. B is super knowledgeable, and helps kids become great musicians. Watch out for mood swings. Even though she is absolutely amazing, she can be a bit of a perfectionist.
My name is Kevin and I graduated in 2004, and was kind of a pain back then but will say that whenever I think about ms. B, I always think of her fondly. Just a word of advice for those who are taking her class or may take it in the future. Take advantage of her extreme talent and knowledge. If you allow it, she will get the best out of you. I think her accolades speak for themselves. I love mrs. Baker as she was known back then. "No woman no cry."
She is a very skilled music director and her choirs are always perfect, but there's a reason for that. She is super-strict and can snap at any given moment. She has mood swings beyond belief and will torture students to get them to sing it just right. I respect her very much as a gifted musician, but I don't approve at all of the way she treats students, myself included.
Ms. B is terrific! She's helped me become a better musician, and has also helped me through some tough times in High school. Musicals and school trips are great with her! :)
Still have nightmares about her almost 5 years after graduation.
She's my teacher now at Forest Park. She may be a little rough, but she's so nice and is extremely nice. You have to love Ms. B!
I'm also a Hylton choir alum. I agree that she is very talented when it comes to teaching music but my G*d her mood swings drove me nuts!
Lara Brittain used to be my choir teacher at Hylton High School over 11 years ago. She does a great job, she has a way of bringing choirs and people together. She deserves the best.
very great teacher. she really knows how to teach music. i really miss this class alot. in her classes everyone is like family and everyone will get along. the best music teacher in the state of VA
Sometimes she is unclear in what she wants us to do, but everyone has to admit: she makes choirs sound great. She really loves (most of) her students, but you do have to watch out for her angry moods!
Disliked her, but I have to admit, we sang well thanks to her.Even the kids who hate her will admit she's a skilled teacher. BUT, she plays favorites and can be VERY mean. Watch out for MOOD swings.
Shes outstanding at teachin music she knows exactly what shes doin & you will learn so much But know what u are gettin yourself into she doesnt care if she hurts your feelins or how frustrated you get
she is annoyed about her divorce so she takes it out on random ppl at times, definatly has favorites and treats the class like the know everythin even if they don't.. not a very good singer or teacher
good at what she does, but class is not fun. very VERY irritable, mood swingy, easily cries. nice person, bad at controlling class.
She was awesome. I had learned so much from her. She was funny and an easy grader.
I Love her class! If you don't like it then you shouldn't be there
ms. brittain is a great teacher, but she always seems to be caught up in her own agendas. her mood swings more often than the tire swing at the elementary school down the street.
Mrs Brittian is a good teacher and can be fair but has some strong moods to watch for. When angery she has a tendency to lash-out at students.
mrs brittan is the coolest teacher! she is awesum and makes chours class so fun!
She is the best choral teacher ever!! Everyone who takes her class has to know how to sing by the end of the year!
