Stop nitpicking and start appreciating the soul of music. We'll never learn it if we're told that everything's so technical when you even know it's not. And that's the truth, what truly counts.

I've been both a soprano and an alto. The Alto part isnt THAT difficult. Dont worry Ms. Atkinson you're the best teacher ever. All these complainers are just lazy. :)

i think she needs to stop feeding the sopranos their parts and act like the altos exist.

You all need to realize, Carrera wouldn't have hired her in that position if he didn't think she could do it and wanted her help. Deal with it. She's a good tea

i think ms.a i ok except, she does make us copy a bunch of notes and listen to messed up music and she shouldn't sing in class, she should learn to sing better.

She basically gives you the material off the book and then you take notes on it and memorize it for the tests and quizzes. She makes you listen to boring music.

We don't need you and your attitude coming into advanced chorus and pretending like you know us and Mr. Carerra. Get to know us before you judge.

Ms.A, I think you are a big help to Mr. Carrera. You help keep the chorus in line and with you and M.C., we get a lot done. You're a great teacher, but focus

I'm sorry, but Mr. Carrera did a good enough job with the chorus & we don't need another chorus teacher, esp. one that doesn't know what she's doing.

for all those people complaining about notes .. .keep them coming. In most classes, teachers have u read an actual book and take notes at home. Consider yourself blessed that ms. A lets us copy them off the overhead.
