Carmella is an inspiration to all of her students ( I am one of them) She puts her all into everything she teaches. When one of the drummers or piano players need help she gets up there and shows them herself. Carmella is enthusiastic about what she does, and there is no doubt that she knows what she is doing. Carmella is so fun to be around because of her funny jokes and sarcastic personality. 10/10 would recommend
Probably one of the best band teachers ever to grace the earth. If you don't like early mornings, if you don't like hard work, if you don't like jokes and innuendo, if you don't like travelling, if you don't palpitate at the thought of musical excellence - that's all right; don't join band. If you don't think Carmella is amazing? Get your head checked.
Carmella is among the best highschool music teachers in the province if not the world. Her bands win awards everyewhere and have earned international fame. She is driven, smart and really funny, and knows more about music and the teaching of music than anyone you are ever likely to meet. She is phenomenal and should get the recognition she deserves. If you practice in her class you will excel, and she will notice if you don't. Basically, don't be lazy, and you will have the time of your life.
@9/03/10 I don't see much of a reason for you to complain. =)
Carmella is definitely very supportive, and very devoted to her teaching! She loves most people and she is hilarious. Definitely going to be sad when she takes her maternity leave. :( but definitely one of my favourite teachers ever and i love learning from her.
Carm, is awesome, she puts so much of her time into the students and helps as much as possible, out of all the schools ive been to she is the best music teacher i have ever had the pleasure of learning from
She's a cool teacher. Most of the time, she picks on and makes fun of kids, even me. I think it's hilarious and it never bothered me. I guess it's what makes her unique. She's really helpful and kind if you're good at your instrument. And make sure you hope that you're one of her favourites.
Carmella is a very good band teacher, she definately knows her stuff, but she has her favourites. If you are not one of her favourites band is not as enjoyable. Also, she tries to be 'popular' and is very unprofessional.
#1 reason why i quit band.... picks favorites, and is very negative if band isnt your #1 priority. She does know alot about what she is teaching ill give her that much
Most understanding teacher ever! I wish her students would be nicer to her, because she is fragile. Being a band teacher isn't easy! Give the woman a break!
She can be mean, but still nice at the same time. odd, Student Anonymus.
Jokes are extremely bad... come on i can only here the g-string joke so many times. But very good teacher and listens to you if you have a problem. Luvi's great.
really understanding. somehoe knows who everyone is 'with' yeah luvi!
She kicks but!! i love her! i cant wait to go to band she is hilarious and her jokes are soooo funny!
Best teacher ever.! she is so funny, I love her class and cant wait to go to band!! its so awesome!! plus she takes us on trips!!
very funni, i jst dont liek bad period btu i enjoy her very much as a teacher
She's deffinately funny, and makes class really enjoyable. She does tend to make fun of some students, but only if they aren't paying attention. V. Fiendly.
She was nice in that she took us on trips to musicfest, but still she picked favourites, and loved gossip. I was not a favorite, I played the wrong insturment
Idaho and musicfest trip were awesome with her! she is a fun person to be around.
I have a feeling you she didn't like me much, but she still is the #1 band teacher in Canada and I would not have traded her for any other music teacher.
Reason why I almost quit band! She never talked to anyone unless they were her favorite, sometimes I wish she would have enjoyed my talent better than she did.
Picks favorites, and turns thing negative if she doesn't like you, which make us not try because we are afraid of put downs from her!
I know she never liked me that much, but I kept in it until grade 12! She is 1 of the best out there, but always turned negative on me. but I still loved band!
made band fun. One class I miss from wellington now that i'm gone.
She rocks! Is the best teacher, and i always look forward to her class. She is so nice, and we all call her Luvi!
