Ms Dionne is the worst! She's incredibly uptight and obnoxious.

She's a nice teacher... until your class starts talking for 3 seconds in between pieces then she'll yell at everyone and act arrogant. Something that i've notice her always say when she's mad is "you know what, guys? I'm a professional singer. I write music and i've recorded and performed many times. And i don't have all day for you to get this right!" I've heard she is also very harsh on every student teacher she's ever had, and i don't think that's fair. Lastly, she sucks at teacher music.

She is a nice teacher but she is extremely disrespectful towards students who don't get it or do not follow her pace. She can be a good teacher but many times she is extremely mean towards many students. She also teaches extremely fast and leaves many behind and then gets mad at them. She is extremely impatient.

She emphasizes participation and being interactive in her classes. She's usually a nice teacher, but can have extreme mood swings and snap at you, especially when concert/performance night is nearing. She will also go beserk when you don't sing or stand up straight when she asks you to.

she's really really great but she relies on the student teacher too much who has taught us our last five lessons on her own

"DON"T PLAY DON"T TALK" is one of her favourite things to yell at us. She goes really fast through her lessons so it's hard to keep up sometimes.

If you have Ms. Dionne, and you have a gift for music, you'll easily get an 'A'. If you sing very well, avoid talking in talk, and focus in class, you'll get an 'A' easily. She doesn't care about perfectness; all she cares about is that you actually try. She'll only get mad at you if you talk and annoy her in class. Especially if you don't sing when she tells you to, or when you talk while she plays the piano.

Ms dionne, is not the best. You have her and like she shouts at you, she takes out her anger on you. She makes everything look easy and its not so you feel really dumb. She can be nice at times.. but not always.
