Not a very good teavher. She dedicates half the class to the percussion section which is only 3 students, and everyone else is left bored. She is very strict about phones. And doesn't want to have them in sight. The class is very boring and I would definitely not recommend this class. I joined hoping I would be in band, but I was in a mixed class with band and beginners band. This really limited me as I am relatively competent at music even prior to this course.

Took band with Ms Freeman all 5 years throughout highschool. She is very average and does not stand out much. She tries to convince students to take other courses and extra curricular activity she teaches. I wish I learned more in her class.

didn't learn shiet in her class
took choir, didn't improve my vocal range or get any better at singing than I already was
music theory was super basic, I think I knew more theory than her
hates phones, heard she's tough for ESL
not that I hate her, just felt like I took a useless class

Honestly, one of the best music teachers I've ever had. She is strict and mean sometimes, only if you don't follow along. If you are an active participating student, she will treat you fairly.

She might seem strict, but her demands are perfectly reasonable as long as you are dedicated enough to band. Once Grade 9 starts, those who are lazy run away and they stop taking band. Those who decide to stay are the true competent musicians who understand the reasoning behind her teaching methods.
In a nutshell, if you make her annoyed, you are not fully committed and band is not suitable for you. Seriously, not talking in class and practicing enough are perfectly reasonable requirements.

She told me to quit guitar. If there is a free-market for teacher, she should be fired. She told us that guitar players cannot have long nails and they are prohibited from taking tests. Yet, the most famous finger-style guitarist in the world plays with long fingernails or uses 5 finger-picks.
Neither was she knowledgeable about guitar, she played terribly.

Worse music teacher I've met. Can't even play the guitar properly and fails students for one mistake. The test is out of 5 marks, you automatically get a 2 if you make one mistake :\

She tries to make jokes, that aren't necessarily funny. Because of the low standard of certain students, she tends to lower the level of ALL students.

If you like when a teacher just gives you a book and abandons you then go for it. She should not be a teacher!
