She retired, but she was one of the most influential people I have ever known. She ran our marching band for 30 years, and made us one of the best band in New York. She could be pretty intimidating at times, but once you got to know her, and actually talked to her, she was pretty nice.
She is the absolute best teacher in the whole world and best band director ever I don't know what we would do without her she's amazing!
I loved her. She was one of the most influential teachers I had in high school, and she still inspires me. Of course, I'm a music ed major, and my flute comes first in life nowadays, so it makes sense
She's really chill and she has to control a band with like 300 kids give her a break. She knows ow to treat us . To the person below. Would you want to perform like crap at something that's on T.V.
Great teacher. She is a good conductor, something the orchestra teacher has not. Don't even comment unless you have been in Symphonics.
her class sucks. she needs to realize that our lives dont revolve around band. not understanding at all. doesnt matter if you're a good musician. 85 zaaaaa
call me ignorant but she is no good. this is the 21st century. this generation of kids should not submit to people like her. she rules by intimidation. cant stand her
She has to be a disciplinarian to keep 300 kids in line, once you know her she is AWESOME! just talk to her and she's nice to you, she just wants FRIENDS
I LOVE SHIRLEY RUSH! SHE CAN BE TAMED. THE PEOPLE THAT HATE HER ARE JUST IGNORANT.
Shirley!!! Ok yea shes really hard, but she makes our band really good. Sometimes she needs to chill out but overall shes ok. Shes a really talented musian.
a very nasty women with little musical talent - I had her way back in the 80's as a jazz band leader - she knows nothing of jazz or music
she had her own little students she loved and didnt care about any others.didnt see potential in her students only what they gave her then and there
She's AWESOME! a 300 person band needs a large and in charge director, the only people who dislike her are the people who are disrespectful to begin with.
cares about band a lot. sometimes too intense though
