She is a good teacher unless you get on her bad side. Just don't talk a lot in her class and you will do fine. Also she really makes sure you have nice posture and have your shoulder rest.

She really knows her stuff and is serious about music (hence all the plaques on the wall). However, she can be scary at times, plays favorites with the first stands, and doesn't like people who aren't good.

She was raised as a string player, so obviously she would be biased towards the orchestra students. However, her inner personality shines through her face-value opinions/biases and she shows great leadership. Why else would she bring home Unanimous Superiors every year from CMEA? :)

Unanimous superior? probably means she's doing something RIGHT. she has a really great sense of the music. yeah she plays favorites but she's also nice to some of the crappiest music players EVER.

Mean (ish)... but she can be funny, at times. She absolutely cannot conduct to save her life.

I did not like her as a teacher. She is pretty much the reason I quit band...I think if I had actually been good at band she would have been nicer to me though...
