Ms Kurth... ah where do I start... At the beginning of Grade 8 I hated her. She definitely hated me too. But as I got to know her over the years, well, It becomes pretty clear that though she has favourites she definitely is a great teacher AND a great person. She gives amazing motivational talks that really get you to think, and we learn lots of music and techniques too. I'll really miss her when I leave the school and she is by far one of the best teachers I have ever, EVER had. :D
She's a very dedicated and passionate teacher. She is strict, so some people say that she's mean. But, she's just doing her job. Of course, she's gonna get angry and yell at people when someone does something wrong. She usually has a reason when doing something. She actually almost made me cry in front of all my friends once and I hated her for it, at that time. But, thinking back, it was actually my fault. She's a really nice teacher. She'll willingly help you get better.
Mrs. Kurth is a fantastic teacher. I say this as someone who feared her, her tests, and was almost driven to tears by her. Kurth is tough, but only because she preys on lack of confidence and weakness in ability that is derived from a lack of effort. Practice hard and stand up to her, and she will respect you.
I don't know why but before I was in BYNG arts people said she's a mean teacher that yells at her students a lot. That is not true. She is the nicest most caring teacher ever. She will help you and will guide you through. She really is passionate about her music and she wants everybody to be the best. I really like ms Kurth. Just don't get on her bad side.
She's really passionate about what she's teaching, she picks favorites but that's not a big deal to me personally. Have to be independent and insensitive if you can't or don't want to be the favorites. She could be a really good teacher if you know how to be her student. XD
She's helpful, so passionate about what she's doing, detailed. But she has favourites and it's actually quite obvious. It hurts.
In my first year of strings, I thought she was a great teacher and a wonderful lady. Later on, I had some difficulty and had some struggles/tough times. Simultaneously, I slipped into her bad side as well. I detested her for about a year, but at the end of the year, I couldn't help but notice how much everybody had improved in playing with the orchestra. At times she talks before she thinks and has rough ways of conveying thoughts, but I have to admit; she is a good teacher who does her job.
Having taken 7-9 classes with her through out my 4 years in the Byng orchestra, from beginner to honor, I can honestly say that she chose favorites and put people on the spot. Although I was often left frustrated and stressed for being singled out I can't ignore the fact that she cared enough to stop the orchestra to help one student.She managed alot of talent and created a fantastic orchestra th
I don't get what all the fuss is about. Mrs. Kurth is amazing, and makes me love strings even more! So she likes me because I know how to play my instrument... it kinda makes sense... Anyways, she's a great teacher, and teaches strings very well.
We know we all love her deep inside, but we really hate those early morning rehersals.... Your a great music teacher...
amazing person. excellent mentor, terrific marks, great passion for music. Artistically sensitive and sympathetic to anyone with passion. Avoid if you don't.
I absolutely adore Ms Kurth, honestly. Her passion for music is contagious, and her enthusiasm refreshing. Has issues with clarity of conducting, though.
music is her life. if it isn't yours, she hates you and doesn't understand. other then that she's ok. good teacher if you're actually interested in learning music
always say someting that we already no. bit annoying sometimes but othertimes she's funny.........okay to have her as a string teacher instead of a eng teacher
An excellent strings teacher. Yeah, so she is a little strict if you talk too much but she is kind and caring. She also knows so much about music and chooses great pieces for us to play.
Really Good teacher, ive had her for strings for almost 6-7 years?.people criticize her to much, considered the fact she teaches elementry and high school ,its amazing her brains didint blow up.
if ur not in her list of favs u can seriosly just get lost. she gives like no encouragement whatsoever to her students, just yelling and rudeness then later pretends to b nice.
favors some students too much, especially her own. she cannot plan trips
At first, I wanted Ms.Chang back. But as the year progressed,she has proven to me as a very MUSICAL and CARING teacher. Try to understand her next time, guys.
She is knowledgeble and she cares, just often misunderstood and sometimes rub people the wrong way.
Although she's tough she helps u improve playing.. about her daughter.. it's sort of obvious.. she arranges kool trips, but u dont want to get on her bad side! has faves
hey guys stop giving her a hard time shes not that bad!
Gone on preg leave....YAH! TOO clear on everything...makes us all scared. All i just do is sit back and see her yell at the cellos and violas ;)
Ugh! I hate her! She's so unfair and basically is just condescending to anyone other than her daughter! why does she bring her daughter to class anyways?!
