13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Always caring and will not tell a student something she doesn't feel they aren't ready for. Direct critiques help for quicker improvements.
-Encourages me to work through vocal problems -Pushes me to improve -Makes student think for themselves.
Lina has extensive knowledge on the subject and is passionate about it. It's very nice to see a teacher with enthusiasm. Lina is also very caring and compassionate. While she expects a lot from her students, she also knows that "life" happens and she is more than willing to work out alternate class times and/or assignment schedules.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
No changes
-Rep. labs just for vocal students, particularly private voice students.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Although students may break down out of frustration, she is always there to help pick them up and give them full support.
She encourages me to keep going whenever I hit a plateau or obstacle.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Always do. Though her teaching style is fairly direct, improvements and a greater understanding come to the students.
Yes, She is very knowledgeable and helpful yet direct.
I would tell anyone looking for a strong foundation in voice to take classes from Lina. As a voice student, it's challenging to visualize anatomy/physiology and how voice relates to your body. Lina breakes down tough concepts in ways that are easier for students to identify with. She structures her teaching around how her student learns best.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Always enjoy taking classes from her. She is very supportive and understanding.
18. Other comments:
One of the best classes I've had. By my 2nd class, Lina had taught me something about my breathing that I couldn't learn in the 10 years of taking voice classes from other teachers. For me, it's miraculous.

17. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
keep up the good work.
Nothing.
I would suggest that your exams be less textual in nature and more generalized information. Memorizing names of songs doesn't seem to be an accurate measure of students knowledge of a subject.
NONE
none at all
none
not much, great teacher, keep it up,
None.
Speak more clearly and update Laulima promptly. Update Laulima ahead of time. Very often announcements are only made in the last minute, it's too rush for us. Reply e-mails daily. Start the class on exact time, not earlier or later than scheduled. Sometimes the class has already started before its official time.
Write down any announcment on board, please don't expect would get 100% what you said. Student could misunderstand what you said
nothing at all
Sometimes I had a hard time in her class because her teaching style didn't help me to learn. I felt that she could learn to be more flexible, by being willing to adapt to different learning styles. The quizzes were tough.
To make her course a writing intensive course.

yes
yes, she is great, knows what she is talking about and is not boring which is what you want, a class where you learn and is enjoyable
YES! I really enjoyed learning of different cultures and music.
Yes. Overall speaking, she is a good teacher. She knows her materials very well and the class is never boring. Just be prepared to write couple of papers for this class, but don't get too freaked out 'cause she grades pretty leniently.
yes
yes because it is an interesting topic
It depends on the student. If a student has a good ear for music and is also passionate about it, why not? The course requires a lot of studying, going to concerts, writing, and memorization. If your memory isn't that great and your study habits are poor, I wouldn't take this course. It takes a lot of discipline to keep up with everyone and to be prepared for each class. If you don't like presenations or are shy, this class isn't for you. Everyone has to present something about their own ethnic background at the end of the semester. The instructor will also call on you during discussion times, not only if you are outspoken, but if you are the quiet person as well. Listening to music, watching music videos, going to concerts, and having a cheap textbook were the best things about this course.
Yes, I would recommend this professor because even though there was a lot of work I learned a lot and see music of world cultures very differently.
Yes I would because she is a really nice teacher and also a very fun teacher to have.
YES ! becuase not only did I enjoy the class but learned a lot as well
yes because she made you see what music around the world is all about.
yes because this class was a great learning experience, and she is a awesome teacher.
Yes, because she knows her stuff and if you want to know about music in other cultures this is the class for you.
