Ms Ward is hands down the best music teacher in Mississauga. She has such a passion for music and she really shows that she loves what she teaches and does. She's the reason I love music. It's a shame that the music teacher at streetsville secondary is so bad that everyone quit.

I took her music classes back at HMC and I have to say, I loved them! It was a struggle for my single mother to afford the rental fee for the flute I wanted to learn to play on, but it was well worth it! I practiced on a daily basis and thrived in this class. I remember spending plenty of time in the practice rooms during lunch/ after school, and I played for both Jr and Sr band. I remember taking my final music test, and having her skip right to the last song in the back of the book!

Mrs. Waard is an AMAZING teacher. she was my favourite teacher at Hazel, and i owe my music life to her. She helped me so much not only to play better and grow as a musician but to be more confident and give me the courage to try new things, she is the reason i'll be at cawthra next year and I'm going to miss her sooo much. She is the best of the best and I am so grateful she was my teacher! :)

Ms. Ward is an awesome teacher. She makes us work hard and practice and helps us too. But when you're doing her tests its so nervewrecking. She can be funny sometimes too.
