MUT1112 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I actually love theory, but you don't learn it by watching a guy standing holding a textbook and talking for an hour without actually illustrating what he's talking about, showing step by step processes, and going through examples together as a tool through which to teach. Does nothing but talk. Very much a classroom atmosphere of "just do it"

If you are thinking about or currently enrolling to this professor DROP IT AND FIND ANOTHER ONE, i rather have driven to homestead or even wolfson rather than to sit through his class, The guy doesnt really care about teaching really just about going through it in the fastest way possible (by getting off topic about 75% of the time)

Mum1011 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

HORRIBLE teaching habits, only does in class guidelines, then sends you hw on new sections without explaining them? Always in a horrible temper new really smiles to help a student out unless its one of his favorites who are already musically inclined. Usually known for picking on the 'not so savy' students

I took Dr. Boos for Women's Choir (MUN 1310) and Chamber Singers (MUN 2341). He really knows what he's talking about vocally and he's helped me with my vocal technique. He'll help you if you ask. Wonderful conductor, my favourite classes of the semester. Highly recommend these courses for vocalists of any level.

Profe. Boos is a wonderful vocal coach. He helped me discover things about my own voice I had no idea I could do. He picked interesting songs for the mid term show & final show of the semester. His techniques help you gain control of your voice and he helps you a lot w/ diction. Women's choir is amazing for strengthening your harmonic performance.

MUT1111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Horrible teacher. Avoid him if you can. He has low patience, rolls his eyes a couple times, always goes off topic making it confusing and if a student asks a question and then you ask the same question an hour later, he will yell at you, so pay attention

mvk1111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He is a really nice guy overall but really can't teach piano one. I barely learned anything and he barely helped. It felt more like he didn't care. yeah after class he is real cool but in the classroom he is not all that great. Don't take piano one with him.

Nice guy, didn't like his teaching style. Rarely illustrates his teachings. Spends most of his time talking, and sometimes goes extremely off topic, or jumps to a more advanced topic and it throws you off. Avoid him if you can.

mul1010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This teacher claims to be a singer; you would never know it from his lack of talent. His sniveling creations are worth less than a protozoan's waist, or should I say "waste". MDC lets anybody teach music. It is unfortunate that there is absolutely no quality control at the Kendall Campus of MDC. What a shame.

MUT1112 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Theory is fantastic with him. Sight singing is super easy. 3 easy homework assignments a semester, but they're mandatory and are 15% of your grade. We work in the book every day in class, but it really helps you learn. Very patient. Willing to help at odd hours, even before tests. Cuts you a LOT of slack during tests, sometimes lets you redo them.

mun2310 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This man is very MOODY. Be aware of his sudden ups and downs. Unfortunately, he can discourage one from singing in my opinion; music, maybe, altogether. I hope he reads this rating in hopes of becoming more considerate toward his students and their sacrifice for what, both he and they love most- MUSIC. Truth is, there are many other choirs...
