Horrible teacher. Classes are not well planned at all, especially when it comes to music theory. Uses horrible analogies that end confusing students. She blackmails her whole class into being part of the band, saying that she will lower your mark if you don’t join, and yells at you if you can’t stay for a practice.

I hope Mrs. Scott-Barnier dies in a hole. Mrs. Scott-Barnier is completely unprofessional, she has frequent outbursts, her teaching methods are very unproductive and she frequently gets into arguments with students who dare to ask a simple question. She needs to learn to put her emotions to the back of her mind and become emotionally detached. She also needs to learn how to mark faster, I haven't gotten back the marks for any of my drama presentations the two we have done throughout the semester

ihateyou. I did everything.. Did everything. Did all my ISPs. Did all my work. And you tell everyone you want us back for grade 10?? HELL NO. I got such a bad mark. I worked so hard on my stuff. Btw I heard some of the marks she gives are bullshitted. BTW RETURN BACK OUT WORK. Seriously we watched movies that had nothing to even do with music and there was so much profanity.

I LOVE music this semester. It's so easy to do well in this class (if you pay attention)! However, she does tend to give more than one project at once, and they're not easy projects

Mrs Scott is a mixed bag. On one hand, her classes are unorganized, exam material is often untaught, and she has occasional yelling fits. On the other hand, she somehow runs the entire department.

I gotta tell you, she is quite nice but also needs a chill pill once in a while. Her screaming is not controlled very well, and she jumped up and down in fury in the cafeteria stage on the day of Sounds of the Season 2008. One other thing, if she wants to help students, she should let students know how they are being marked so that they clearly know what to focus on for improvement. I know it's tough being the only music teacher at Mac, but she can be at least a bit more clear on the courses she teaches.

Why don't you people ever think in someone else's shoes for once? Music isn't an easy subject to teach and frankly, she's the only teacher in the subject. Sure, she yells, she forces you to go to band, but that's because of her passion of us, students, to be successful while under her teaching. Every other course has at least 2 - 3 teachers and some have over 10. But Ms. Scott is the only one in music. We should thank Ms. Scott. Because without her, there wouldn't be a music class in Mac.

Best music teacher I've ever had. Considering though i've only had...3 including her. Still, I have learned the most from her, and I feel people aren't giving enough credit to her. She's the head of music and also the ONLY teacher that teaches it. She teaches it according to what you say your experience is. She's been nice to me, so I consider her a friend. But a lot of people seem to dislike her for different reasons. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.

Woe is Ms. Scott, for she is the only music teacher in our severely underfunded music department. She's intelligent, dedicated, and as much as you may hate her voice she yells only when she needs to make sure things get done - and then they DO get done.

She's really nice and the hardest-working teacher in the school! Hard to tell sometimes, cuz she juggles numerous music ensembles, music council, all the music classes, and so much more that it's hard to keep up (like with her marking) so stop complaining. She has a great sense of humour and fashion. I highly recommend joining a music ensemble, as long as ur pretty committed. Take her class if u like cooperative learning and one-on-one teaching cuz u'll miss it in university! keep^ the good work ms.scott

She's improved over time. I was in her VERY FIRST homeform class, and I learned more independently. She's mellowed out now, but still needs to work on teaching.

Quit whining, all of you. Maybe you should join Music council, then you'd understand what she has to deal with. It's not easy, and she's giving it her all.
