I am a Tenor Sax player. I personally love her as a teacher, she may seem like she picks favorites, but i think she trys to develop the more advanced players a bit more, but its because they are ready to move on to harder stuff, not that she picks favorites. The only issue i have is when this one kid was just messing around in every class for 3 weeks, and she didn't do anything about it. All around great teacher!!!
I love Ms.Hobbs, She's so much fun and shes only strict on music teachings which is completely normal. She does not pick favourite's as some people say she does. She's overall just a great teacher who's close with each one of her students. :)
Dale Hobbs was my music teacher. She neglected the students and picked favorites. She rarely taught and did not mark fairly. She would give her favorites, who were often show-offs, higher marks then other students who were clearly more dedicated and talented.Some students will claim she is an excellent teacher but they are mistaken. They likely just like her because one rarely had to work in her class.
Doesn't teach well, I'll admit, but I love her because she's sweet, and an easy marker!
I've had her two years in a row and have learned nothing. But she had a great personality, really nice and funny too.
well i don't play any musical instruments because i have a disability and i'm to shy to sing in a class, but i joined choir and i don't even know how to read music and i find her very helpful :)
aight yo she is like an amazing music teacher so like back off
Nice teacher.. but need to understand that differant groups of musical instruments learn at differant paces.
I cannot stand her! She sucks majorly. She should go teach kindergarten; she degrades students when she talks to them like they're 6! I haven't learned a single thing in her class.
I had her for gr. 11 music in 1993 - was one of the few music teachers who actually taught music properly and attempted to teach us music theory. she does get personal with taleted students but she's ok yet others hated her
Not the best instrumental music teacher. Way too cheery, and not focused enough on the actual music, from my experience. Don't know about vocal music...
I guess not everyone likes you, but i think you're funny. The little stories are great and you're not overly strict.Way to go Mrs.hobbs, you're cool!
I absolutely hated being in ur class, you ruined grade 11 music for me!!
She totally excluded the boys in our class at times by choosing songs for us to sing with no male parts. Boys are a part of the class too!
hobbs= bad, bad=hobbs. I really wish they'd fire her, she's a disgrace to the profession.
she seems way more interested in doing show's at her own theatre then in teaching. I stronly suspect she has some form of untreated mentally illness.
at 3 oclock there is always a race to see who will get out the door first, Dale hobbs or the students. I hope she gets fired. She's awful.
Dale, if you are reading this, please retire....please. you are a very bad teacher/person. why do you get personal with children? you are an adult.
I can safely say she is the worst teacher I've ever had. I've never seen a grown women as petty and childish as she is. I really hope she leaves teaching.
I hope she keeps having kids. if she does she will be kept out of the class room. Oh she likes to take kids on feild trips to her own theatre.
Dale, I'm sorry to say that I was very unimpressed with your teaching of this course. Poor lecturing, poor explanation of material and you were never available.
If she was in any other profession she would have been fired long ago. She's very lucky there is a teacher shortage.
I wish there was some way I could get the tax dollars I spent paying for her "teaching" back. Truely a waste of a parking space.
a very mean, petty, self centered and hypocritical human being. I wish I'd never met her and that Ross had a real vocal music teacher instead of her.
bad teacher, uses the limited power she has over 14-17 year old children to make herself feel important. a shining example of what is wrong with the profession.
Wastes class time disscussing television with teachers pets. Is easily offended by different points of view.
Don't expect respect if she doesn't like your song, or if you ask if you can sing something different for once. Still a pretty good teacher and nice-ish person.
pretty good teacher for vocal i don't know about instrumental and a very nice lady
Ms Hobbs is an ok teacher, it is sort of a bird course, but she has good feild trips and shes easy to talk to. she doesnt play favourites. beleive me ive had 2
Mr. Wilson was way better. It would be nice if we were actually doing something interesting in her class.
She's a great teacher. She won't love you just because you're talented (I've noticed good singers tend to slack off). She has flipped a few times but that's ok
She is so down to earth and she marks very easy. She listens to what you have to say and is an awesome person!!!
I Have Mrs.Hobbs for vocal music and as the conducter in the choir. Shes fun!
not enjoyable at times, but not a hard marker either...
I've noticed that if a student is a better singer she gets them into trouble all the time.
Pretty nice teacher and will always be there to help
succumbs to the 'teacher's pet'. no appreciation for other talented students.
Goes out of her way to put talented students down. Very insecure, a disgrace
This girl has a lot of problems. I believe her to be mentally ill.
