Freeman has the musical capabilities of any professional, and it still astonishes to me this day that she devotes her time in teaching high school students. While many people had said that her teaching is pretty decent, it seems to only be in band class. Other musical courses does not seem to bring the same joy as band, and many students are harshly reprimanded for just not understanding the course, and it seems to bring a dreary tone whenever her class commences. Attitude needs to change.
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.
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.
shes so strict teacher she always mean to us and sometimes shes nice and shes loves dogs
had a brilliant experience in bad, excellent at teaching music, made me enjoy playing clarinet! marks easy too
I really love music but she's the reason why I'm not taking ANY music courses at school
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 don't listen to the announcments, she makes the WHOLE class stay for recess.
If you like when a teacher just gives you a book and abandons you then go for it. She should not be a teacher!
uses her heart to teach but also loses professionalism when using her heart. Limits chances for overall students
hmm...well...mostly expects a lot from us..even tho sometimes we dunt really noe wht she's talkin abt...
always in a bad mood. except for several days. BIGGG mood swings. but wut do u expect. most teachers are like that. sumtyms is nice.
good teacher... but not teaching~ don't like the part that "kinda force you into other activities that she teaches"
teach? no way, she just make us practice practice and practice. i like her little bonuses tho
she understands people. I found her way of teachin' very helpful and informative; and i am sure it'll be better for music for people who likes the course...
Fun........but make sure you double check your theory sheets!
