Mrs Maddern is a nice lady and she does care about her students. (Her choir kids, at least.) My only problem with her is that she knows LITTLE about music and directing a choir. We spend each class just running the set and talking about problems instead of fixing them. She also has bad judgement about auditions and sometimes lets in people who can't read music over someone who takes lessons. Aside from that, she is organized when it comes to planning concerts, Musical America, and Disneyland.
I do not enjoy her english classe because she assigns more home work than my AP World and Honours Chem classes combined. She things she teaches you things but its up to you to teach your self complete
i dont know about her judgment very well. she has favored bad singers over great ones. but overall i had lots of fun in her class. im still in it right now its half way through my freshman year. so ya
Not hands on, lets the kids control the class, very disorganized, generally pushy, but she demands very little other than that we preform well. I don't enjoy her as a teacher, but she's tolerable.
thinks she knows a lot, but has yet to prove it, in my opinion. let her bluster, then listen to the other musicians as to what you should REALLY do. didn't like her.
Its funny watching her yell at attention-seeking students. Very interesting and it takes up time,yay. Her class was ok, she wasn't too easy or too hard.
she has her moments...can be really cool or really not. thinks she's funny so just laugh with her. not hard to get an A if you show up
uhh, would be easy except she doesn't always kno what she is doing, which can get confusing .
