This woman is talented and has a real love for music. However she lacks a professional attitude towards her job. What she sees as professional is in terms of music. However it seems that she often forgets she is a teacher, and not a peer. I have had her for one year and I can truly say that my voice has matured, whether that is her doing or not, I can not say. However, her composure led me to drop chorus all together. If you are good, and don't agree w/ her, good luck. Don't let her control you.

A lot of people think she'd bias & cranky. But I don't believe that's true. If you listen in class & treat the class just like a regular class & you're respectful ur fine. The kids who complain treat the class like a study hall and talk all the time. You just have to be willing to know your part & memorize the lyrics. I was never in the shows or camerata & I wasn't popular in class but I was respectful & worked hard & she loved me, same goes for a lot of ppl.

Wonderfull experiences with this woman. She truly takes pride in what she does as well as training her students to mature vocally in such a professional way. Camerata is a wonderful group and has been a delightful experience. Mrs. Contino always picks awesome pieces for her choirs that truly bring out the best. As well as juggling three major choirs, she also runs a large amount of the school musical. The musical is a massive, four-month production that would not be nearly the same without her.

Linda is a horrible teacher. She is all over the place in general. She teaches songs from the ending to beginning and then wonders why students are confused about the lyric order. Her directions are very vague and never really explains what she wants

She is one of the most incredible, hard working people I know. She truly loves what she does and puts her entire heart and soul into all of her work. I feel extremely lucky that I got to be her student, she's not only an amazing teacher and has taught me so much for my career, but a friend who has taught me much about being a person. She's the best.

She can be OK, but she seems like she's trying to be friends with people until she gets overwhelmed. Then she blames us because we're not well prepared.
