Gillian is a fantastic professor. Her listening tests and midterms were very easy because she posted the exact information needed to succeed. If you get this prof you should consider yourself blessed. She is so helpful and kind. I am so happy I chose this elective. I would definitely take a class with her in the future.

Friendly and a somewhat lenient marker however the real problem lies with the content. Most of it is boring and her slides do not help either (no formatting; white background with TONS of memorization for tests). This class is DIFFICULT for those not used to music theory as many difficult terms are used. Easy projects/ essay but DIFFICULT tests.

God bless this woman! She is by far one of the sweetest ladies I have ever come across. Never met a prof who cares this much abt his/her students' success.

absolutely amazing! spent 5 hours on the essay and ended up with 80%. if you actually try , you'll get A's. I didn't but she I still ended up with an 80. Pray that she teaches next year because she said her contract might be ending soon !

Great Prof. Extremely helpful, very flexible with deadlines and due-dates. She is an easy marker as long as you pay attention in class and do the work. One of the best ones at Ryerson.

I LOVE GILLIAN. That's what she makes you call her, too. I will never take a music class that isn't taught by her. She makes sure everyone understands and gives a lot of extra help for assignments. She's so funny and loves what she teaches. One of the best profs I've ever had. Usually ends up extending the final essay deadline.

Very good prof. I was surprised to see calculus and linear algebra show up on the exam, so be ready for lots of math in this course.Have a few shots before the final exam to help with the jitters.

Not much to say. She is just the best professor I had! You do not have to attend all her classes, but after first class, you will want to attend her classes no matter what.

Gillian is an AMAZING prof! She's very nice and will help you when ever you need the help. She loves what she teaches and makes you enjoy her class. If you was a class where you can chill and work with ease take this class. I loved Gillian and would recommend to take this class!

She is an awesome prof! The first professor that i really admire. The course is not hard. I didn't buy a textbook and still get A- for it. Study her slides for midterms and final, do well on your essay and you will be fine. She is really helpful and considerate. If you have any questions, ask her and she will try her best to help you.

She's a very nice professor! Good marker as well. Her slides are very detailed and helpful. Listening quizzes are not hard. Her tests aren't bad either. Take her class, you'll only do bad if you don't show up and don't spend a day or two studying for her tests.
