MUSC 221-3 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Great Teacher! Knows her 20th century music...unfortunately. I love her teaching style and her stories about "Fawns and Sex" in the classroom. Definately a great lady and helps you out 100% of the way!

Avoid if you can. Unfortunately if you're a music major you can't. Grin and bear it. Be prepared to teach yourself. You won't get much help here. She may be bright but she sucks at teaching.

Non-West Music Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Her tests are kinda hard, but if you go to class everyday and sit through the boring movies, you will be rewarded. The project is worth alot, so do a really good job on it and you will get an A!

Theory II Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She's just plain weird. She cries when she talks about certain things. What's up with that. She's pretty arrogant and only values her mentors (Copley - gag!) And what's up with her husband always around? He's not even on staff and yet he has free use of the facilities. Not a good teacher

She's plays favorites and her finals are a complete joke. Everything I learned I learned on my own or with the help of another musician.

Non-western Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Only a music major would call her "Brilliant". She's an average prof for us normal people. A little flighty at times. She thinks everybody grew up playing a musical instrument everyday of their life. But I can't complain too much b/c we got to watch some good movies in class.

MUSC 321 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

One of the best professors I've ever had. Covers the material in a clear, concise manner, and her expectations are clear. Tests are tough, you really need to know the material well. Very fair and helpful, as long as you show that you care!

I so almost dropped the class the first week, but I'm glad I stayed in--I ended up getting straight A's. I had to work extremely hard at first, but then the content just started coming to me out of nowhere :)

Can't say enough good things about her. Wonderful person. She is a fantastic teacher and knows how to address the material to each individual in the class. I feel so sorry for her being in such a political nightmare like ONU Music Dept.

She's BRILLIANT!! She's tough, but her door is always open for extra help. She may be the smartest professor at ONU as well as one of the best theory teachers in the nation. She should really be teaching at a better music school.

Although she is tough inside the classroom if you take the time to go and talk to her she is a very inviting and helpful professor. She is also one of the nicest people I have met at ONU.
