"Participation matters" "Skip class? You won't pass."

Overly passionate about music, but I guess for a music prof that's not a bad thing. Sometimes she's a little rude but you just have to let it go. She makes you buy her "textbook" and a soprano recorder. It feels like a high school class honestly.

FPA 238 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Gives too much work for an elective class. Talks too much & goes off on random tangents. Don't bother.

FPA 202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She puts all your grades on blackboard throughout the semester which is very helpful to see how you're doing. She isn't necessarily the easiest professor but she made music appreciation interesting and I learned a lot. An A in a FPA class is a 93% not a 90% so that's something to look out for too.

She gives way too much work and pointless group project. If you like to write papers, then go ahead and take her class.

FPA202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

she is not necessarily a bad teacher and the work is not hard but she gives way too much of it. i have 4 other major classes and i have to spend so much time doing all of her assignments: 6 papers, final project is paper and 15 min presentation, midterm and final exams. waste of time.

FPA491 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Great teacher!!!! She knows what she?s doing. Few written assignments, one presentation, midterm and final. Test are multiple choices, short answers and two short essays and everything in the test is the same thing that she discussed in class. As long as you participate in class and do the work you are definitely getting an A.

she is terrible he trys to impress you everday on how good she is at playing the piano and that she can play the flute. She hasmany papers that are all annoying that she grades very hard cause she thinks she is better than you. Also she makes you do presentations that should be 15 min long about a stupid musician, dont take her save yourselves
