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.

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

Great teacher. She is a good conductor, something the orchestra teacher has not. Don't even comment unless you have been in Symphonics.

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.
