I happen to think Dr Washington is a great teacher. She may not be the best conductor, but she is a very good violist and knows a lot about music. I also like how she offers her students to come to her shows. She is also very easy to talk to, you just have to get on her good side!

I really don't know what to say. She's smart, and sort of wise, and she has good ideas...but she CANNOT control a class or orchestra at all. Orchestra 7 is just...ugh. She also plays favorites with the strings, which isn't too wonderful for the winds players who will probably play for 8 minutes during the concert...

I'm not sure what to think. She obviously picks favorites and I feel that it's not fair. She also doesn't have a lot of patience, especially when we're sight reading... maybe things will change...?

Theory is another realm in this world. There's so much to do and know. She runs through a lot of things and expects us to teach ourselfs. "when in doubt, follow instructions." What instructions?

Eh, I'm a freshman now and I don't think she really likes us, she probably knows we're better than most of the older orchestra members but she has favorites of the older ppl. Sometimes she doesn't listen right. Not a good conductor. Either the orchestra is slow or she is. =/

Intellectual teacher; knowledgable about many things. She's a good teacher when you have your head on straight. The truth is you can find faults in everyone. To concentrate on those is unfortunate.

She's a great theory teacher, i hope i get her for Music history. However as far as conducting, it's something she need not do.
