Mus166 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is a sweet lady but if you haven't touched a piano then find a buddy in class to help you because you will be lost.

MUS 165/MUS166 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

She is nice... but i dont think she taught anything all year. She just gives you practice time and then grades you on your test. I dred going to class knowing that I either, wont learn anything or be graded on something she didnt teach.

keyboarding Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Made me cry more than most profs. Deep down she's a sweet lady, she just doesn't GET it. When you've never touched a piano and are stuck in keyboarding with piano majors and then forced to play in front of them, it's scary, and she doesn't understand that. When I changed majors and dropped her class she was finally understanding and supportive and I know she means well, but if they give you an option to take another teacher, I suggest doing so.

Piano I Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She is a sweet lady, but she is not a good teacher. She has no faith in some of her students. She thought a piece was too hard for me, she didn't encourage me to try, she told me to pick a different piece because I couldn't handle it.

She will push you, and sometimes push you too hard, but you will improve your skills as long as you remember to practice.

MUS 140 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

She is very helpful and fun. If you have never touched a piano before, this class will be hard though. If you have played some before, then the class will be pretty simple.

piano Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She is the cutest woman! She's really helpful, but it's a little hard to get one on one help. She'll tell you in a nice way if you stink, but she would never tell you to quit. Likes when you have an interest in music.

Keyboarding Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Extremely sweet lady. Difficult to ever see her without a smile on, but class can be a little difficult for first years. You'll actually have to practice. If you, however, hate to practice, then why the hell are you in music? She can tend to move fast, but just keep up and you'll learn a lot.

MUS 165 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

She is very helpful when she works with you one-on-one, but that doesn't always happen and you will be left behind sometimes if you have not played in awhile.

Keyboard Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: N/A Grade Received: N/A

Very difficult for an entry level piano class. I knew it was going to be trouble when she asked who was in the 0-5 year skill range. Class moves way too fast and tests are extremely demanding. Take it at ICC

Piano Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: N/A Grade Received: N/A

Piano class is far too hard, but Mrs. Kaizer tries. She is a VERY sweet woman and is willing to give anyone any help they might need, piano related and otherwise. The class is horrible, especially if you haven't been playing since you were 4.

Hard as hell... she goes so fast it's scary. She tries, but fails. She does like to embarass you in class... but I took her for applied lessons later and she was wonderful.
