She is a great music teacher but has extremely difficult teaching methods. She hands you hard music and expects you to play them perfectly. I didn't have a very good musical experience with her.

sometime she can be nice and sometimes she can be downright mean, like the time someone with good intentions put her computer in standby and she freaked out :/.

I love her and all, she's a great teacher and shes passionate about what she does but she can be REALLY rude to you even when you're helping her, because she forces you to, all class... all week...

Used to not like her. But this year i think she stepped it up a bit, still wanders around a lot, i think she does care, she just has some trouble controlling people sometimes

Selby is so much better than Thorne. I'd rather have an over-the-top teacher than a nutcase any day. Always good for a laugh, and really cares about the sudents. Both teachers do too much theory.

She actually gets PAID to teach? Is that what she's supposed to be doing ? Not wandering around outside the classroom and telling everyone who will listen how great she is? Let me know when she starts to teach because I haven't seen it. I was in her class for 2 years and it was a total waste of time. I learned more from watching my cat cough up a fur ball.

Plays favourites, makes students do random tasks, always leaves the room, but at times can be really fun and comes up with cool ideas for us to do.
