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

I mean he is a great guy and has an incredible voice and I respect him as an artist. But as a professor? No... I feel like his career is prioritised than his students. I didn't learn a lot from his class but he will occasionally talk about his personal experience based on his career which was really helpful.

PIVC-XXX-F1155 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A+

Jerome is an extremely funny and sweet guy but he is almost always at least 10-15 minutes late to class. He is very easy in the sense that he doesn't make you work very hard which can be good or bad. If you know you're good, and just want to sing... take him. If you actually want to learn about your voice, etc... don't take him.

Jerome's confidence is shown through his music. He may not preach the best but I think he will improve with a partner. When there is two, harmony appears easier. He is a wonderful person who really cares and does not give up at all! Good Luck to him on the duo album.

He knows his stuff, and when he decides to teach you, you will learn a lot. Midterms and Finals were unorganized resulting in confusion and lost time. He only dedicates his teaching to you if he sees you have potential, so show him that voice because he can give you some gems of information that really help you get the most out of your performing.

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

Good looking, VERY easy on the eyes, but NOT a good teacher. Would cancel classes without emailing, late every class with an excuse, not very clear on instructions. Not good at teaching. You can tell he would rather be on stage then in the classroom. I will say this though- VERY nice person and INCREDIBLE, BEAUTIFUL voice.

pivc0312 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I had him first semester for Background Singing. He didn't do a good job showing up, but when he did the class was awesome. After the students approached him about it, he completely changed. I took him for R&B Styles 2nd semester, and he always showed up and was on time. I take him for private lesson too, and he is amazing. Def worth it! :)

ILVC281 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

i had him for background singing, and he literally showed up to less than half of our classes, and when he did show up he was 10-15 minutes late. he has a lot of neat experience in the business and a lot of talent, but he just wasn't helpful at ALL as a teacher. i feel like this class was basically a waste.

I had Perf. Skills of Background singer & R&B Styles lab with him. Backgnd singer I did not get much out of. If u had a great high school choir director then u know more than what u will receive in this class already. Much better one on one like in R&B Styles. His information was relevant, useful and applicable towards you own singing artistry.

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

Jerome is a pretty good teacher when he shows up. This is what other ratings have failed to mention. You will learn your stuff IF he actually shows up. IF. He showed up at least 10 minutes late for all of my lessons, sometimes not even showing up at all. He seems nice enough, and was willing to make some up, but he's got a reputation among faculty.

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

he loves himself and his music.. thinks he is going to teach us things we need to know in the "real world" stuff berklee wont teach you... he stuck us in groups and had us do a midterm and final without practicing in groups in class. this class is worth a 1/2 a credit and it think thats too much to give it...

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

He can play and sing, but can't really teach. He can make up great on the spot harmonies, but the class didn't really learn much.

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

Jerome was very into himself the entire class, and though he did know how to make up good harmonies, he was pretty bad at teaching us how to blend effectively. He was the only teacher of this class to assign a midterm and he didn't provide an accompanist. Terrible teacher. I hate Jerome.
