Choir Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

This professor is very laid back and he knows his stuff. The music is challenging and he's a very experienced conductor. He's really sweet and a lot of fun.

I've noticed something with Don. People with talent and potential like him and respect him. Arrogant, untalented people who think they know everything are intimidated by him and like to put him down. He is life-changing and brilliant. An absolute must for anyone who loves music. Funny, TALENTED, charismatic, informative, and passionate. Go Don!

I just wished I paid more attention when I was in his class. He is a very nice guy and extremely knowledgeable about music. Any serious voice student should take his class.

MUSIC102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

The best professor of my academic career. Has an equal love for the intellectual and emotional aspects of music. Will go way out of his way to make sure one student understands in their own way of learning. You can pass with minimal effort, or really dive in and get your mind blown and learn a lot.He has an inspiring, contagious love for music.

If you are lusting for absolute knowledge and passion (music or life) and you are willing to put aside YOUR pride to earn it, Don is your man. He doesn't mind skepticism and will ALWAYS prove what he says through logic but if you are a cynical person, well good luck in life :P

MusicCHBR Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This guy is one of the biggest headed people I've met. Sure he's intellectual. But half the time he's talking, the whole choir will be sitting there just wondering what the hell he's talking about. He's a waste of time, don't bother. If he offers you to be in his Donald Brinegar's singers, well, that's entirely up to you.

MUS101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

A great teacher if you are willing to learn what he has to teach. However, if you are a arrogant teenager who thinks they already know everything, he really doesn't have time for you...but then who does, really?

Don Brinegar is the most life changing professor I have ever had. I have participated in several of his programs and am constantly being "enlightened". The most valuable thing about this teacher is his dedication to the music. In fact, he calls music "the greatest teacher I've ever known". Thanks be to god for teachers who "get it"!!!

Voice1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

These raters are insane. Unless he has changed in the two years since I was his student, Don Brinegar is a brilliant, kind, amazing teacher who will challenge you to become a far better singer than you ever imagined. His good reputation is based on reality, not the bitter and resentful few.

Makes you feel like an idiot. Not helpfull. tells Crude jokes. thinks he is the center of the world. He has a good reputation in the music industry, but it's unfortunate if you are a voice major because he is such a huge part of the music department.

I loved this class. Professor Brinegar really knows sight reading and how to teach it. I learned a lot about music theory that I never knew before.
