13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
She knew the subject well, shows concern for her students, and she's easy to approach if you need to talk to her. She's just a kind person.
She always have something interesting to see, like video materials or even real musical instruments. And she provides not only music of different countries but also its history and culture, that really helps to understand the subject.
She is very knowledgeable about her subject, grades assignments in a timely manner, and when she says she is going to upload something online, she does it within a few hours.
Enthusiastic, patient, concerned for students, caring, knowledgable of the subject, humble
She knows the subject matter very well. She also keeps the students engaged in the class.
She has positive and bright personalities. She is very organized.
She makes good atmosphere
Given the fact that this was a 6 month course smashed into 6 weeks makes you realize how fast this class went by. This was my first summer school class in college and I highly enjoyed it. Music is the one thing in my life that is constant and going through Ms. Yang's class made me wish I had taken this class during the regular school year. I really loved learning about the different regions of the world and how music defined certain cultures, as well as the historical and political aspects. Ms. Yang is very thorough and over all a joy to have as a teacher.
She is nice, she is sweet, she made me feel comfortable to ask her questions in and out class. She provided a very good atmosphere with her personality and how she teaches for all the students' participation I think.
She's very good with speaking to students
She is very flexible and has a good sense of humor. She is also very passionate about what she teaches, and it made me want to learn more!
She connects with the students
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
None that comes to mind...
Nothing. Everything is cool.
None
The music examples are sometimes played way too loud
No changes.
Yes
Nothing comes to mind.
Nothing! She was just great seriously. I like her so much.
None that I can think of
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She will make sure if everything was clear with students (in terms of the lesson) and she will help if help was needed.
She allowed for breaks and read our moods well in class.
Always made herself available after class hours.
I could see a lot of interaction during class. She always asks us how we are doing, and she gives us time to share ideas with other students before she asks to the whole class.
Cheer up students
She always let everyone speak their minds. She never cut anyone off. Even if they were persistent about speaking about the topic we were on.
She always listens to each student in class (and probably out class also) even a student says something shyly or almost whispers.
She really respect every student in the class and show understanding towards us
She was flexible, accomedating, and engaged as well as available.
She made herself available when you needed her
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes I would recommend her to students. She is a very kind teacher who knows the subject.
Yes, I would. Because I could not imagine world music class may be such interesting!
Yes. I've only took 2 classes at KCC but she already is someone who I think others would enjoy taking, especially for a full semester compared to the shortened summer terms.
Definitely. Music is a joy to study and her lesson plans are new.
Yes, great professor who's is passionate about the subject matter.
Yes, it is a great opportunity to know how music are related to each country and how different they are.
yes. Her knowledge is cool and good atmosphere
I would absolutely recommend Ms. Yang's class to anyone.
Absolutely YES!
Strongly agree
Yes! If you want to learn about Music in world cultures she is that perfect teacher!
Yes. She is a great teacher
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
She's a great teacher!
nothing
Her classroom never had a bad vibe in it. Always a welcoming and comfortable feel to it.
I would say, if you are taking MUS 107 then make sure to take her class!
She is very sweet! I enjoyed having a teacher that is from another country.
18. Other comments:
I wouldn't mind having her as my teacher again! that's how great she is.
The class was so nice, and I enjoyed it.
It was a small class and you could tell everyone in it was from all over the map but when we started talking about music it felt like we all came from the same place. Music is universal.
I appreciate how she is. Had a good time with her in class.
I enjoyed this class very much, and I learned so many new things! Thank you!

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
She gave us a lot of homework, but it was meaningfull assignments. She also gave me a suggestion. It was helpful.
Very kind and easily accessible
She is really good teacher. I feel like your explanations are easy to understand
Quick grading.
She describes very clear about the assignment.
Man Yangs strengths in my opinion is that she is very well organized and knows a lot about her subject that she is teaching. Another thing i found very great is her instructions were very easy to follow and had no problems with the assignments. She is very prompt wit getting back to students via email and answers all questions very throughly . i feel another one of her strengths is that she really does care about her students.
The assignment submissions and course topics were organized very well. The criteria and the number of points were clearly written in the syllabus, making it easier for students to understand what is being expected in this course.
She was always there if I needed her.If Laulima wasn't working, she would work with us and help us out .
She is very clear with her instructions. Even though some assignments may be a bit of a challenge, her assignments make it fun.
She is organize .
She knew the subject area very well and always did explorations with us as an example.
Fair grader Understanding
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Her instructions were sometimes confused me.
None :)
Nothing, I really like that your class
Maybe a video chat between the students and teacher for a virtual classroom.
She already good enough !
Me personally would of rather had the class in a class room than online thats just my personally opinion. i feel me as an individual process the work and understanding a bit better when in class with every one then an online class but besides that i found this class very entertaining and fun and very knowledgable learned a lot for sure .
For the research project, I would have preferred to choose a topic other than my own ethnicity. It would have been better if students could choose any topic of interest.
None. This was a great class.
reply to emails a little sooner.
No changes
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
I am sorry, but I do not know.
Emailed us back promptly graded things on time
She text us
By sending notifications on when assignments are due.
She showed great poise with posting grades very promptly with little comments of encouragement, she also was very prompt with emailing back to students if they had any questions or if something was unclear to them. She also showed concern by making us all interact with each other on the discussion board.
Ms. Yang left short comments in the grade book for my submitted assignments. Also, she emailed the class explaining in detail about how online discussions are graded and the reasons why some people lost points.
She was there if we needed to ask any questions
Whenever I had a question, she always took her time to help me with what I needed.
Always open for questions and did examples with us.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
yes because she is a good teacher.
Yes. She was very nice and helpful
Nothing because your perfect
Yes.
Yes i would for sure recommend man yang to other students because the class was very fun and interesting i learned a lot and the work is very easy to follow and as long as you put in the time you will succeed just like in every thing else.
Yes, because the course schedule and assignments are very well organized. Also, the course content helps students to appreciate and understand the music of various cultures in a fun and interactive way.
Yes. This class is cool because you can tell about your own music style.
Yes i would. If anyone likes music, they would like her classes.
I would not recommend to take this class if you dont like to read and write a lot. Every week you have four assignments that need to have 300 words and look for videos that back up what you wrote about and they are worth only 2 or 3 points. I know is an online class but you dont interact with the teacher at all ( many people like that ) . Also she doesnt really give you a good explanation on why you dont get full credit for your assignments.
I would because she is very fair and clear in what she expects from the students.
Yes. Ms. Yang makes this course interesting and manageable in a online environment.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Nothing
Nothing
I really like your class because I can communicated with other students.
I would like to say that she is a very great teacher and I'm stoked i had her for sure. If i attended KCC regularly i would for sure try get another class with her i really enjoyed this six week session.
I enjoyed having her as a teacher, and if i ever need to take another music class I wouldn't take it from anyone but her.
Ms. Yang gives out fair assignments, the only thing is that the event analysis might not be a good choice for online class students because most students choose to take classes virtually because of their incapability to attend in-person classes. The event analysis assignment is very time consuming in my opinion.
18. Other comments:
It was kind of short time, but Thank you for your class.
None
Thank you for teaching me I really enjoyed this class
I could totally maintain my writing skills in your class. Thank you so much.
Although there were many writing assignments within a very short period of time, and I was constantly stressed to finish them on time, I was able to learn so much in this class. I especially enjoyed the "exploration" discussions, because I had so much fun watching videos and reading articles on current trends about many different musical cultures.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Man Yang continually kept the classroom interested in each of the topics we covered in class. All round great teacher!
Yang's strengths were that she involved everyone to be part of a group discussion project so that everyone had a chance to learn about different Asian politics, culture, and historical archives and events.
She made us enjoy the classes every time.
She is incredibly patient. I think she also shows a great deal of receptiveness and honesty. Possibly due to her background in music, she approaches the class subject matter with a refreshingly different perspective.
Her slide show are very good and she explains the cultures well.
She's really passionate and knowledgeable in the field of Asian Studies, and at the same time knowledgeable on the culture as well. Also, she keeps everything organized and neat on time every class.
-clear in explaining new things, not letting commuciation (pronunciation) barrier to get in the way of lecturing
she knows the subject well, likes to get students to participate regardless how stupid we may sound not knowing much about the subject.
-personable, approachable -fair, reasonable -always prepared for her lecture -encourages students to give their opinions on discussions
She gives many opportunities to students for participation in class and often give reminders about upcoming projects, extra credit opportunities and quizzes. She has a lot of information on subjects covered for the course and is understanding as a teacher to help reach a compromise on assignments if reasons are legit. She also encourages students to participate in school functions. She allowed an easy entrance to the Honolulu Museum of Arts to make doing a project easier.
She's a knowledgeable professor with a lot of patience for her students, who asks the dumbest question ever!!!!! She is also very nice and an understanding professor.
She is Asian and knows about much of the demographics and history of Asia.
She is very understanding of students busy life and schedule and does her best to cooperate.
very caring
knows the subject area.
She has been a great help to me this semester, I suffered a lot through this semester but Ms. Yang was always helpful and positive
Man Yang is very enthusiastic and experienced in her field of work, and is good at inspiring her students to learn more about the history and cultures of Asia and they world around them. She also has a talent for getting students to think for themselves, and encourages them to cover interesting topics in and out of class, beyond the basic texts.
great examples, encourages participation
Her major strength would be the PowerPoint. Nice clean and simple.
She explains well about her area.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Nothing.
Not very much to change out of her, I think she's a perfect instructor to have when you take her courses between Asian Perspectives or Music History.
Nothing
I see some student cheating when we are taking exam, which is super annoying.
While I find her patience to be one of her shining qualities, I would suggest that she balance that with strictness with time limits. Sometimes I feel she was pressed for time, because student presentations ran a little long.
Can she be a bit more flexible with her typed assignments.
Probably provide more time constraints on her lectures, as some lectures span from a certain period of time and sometimes are behind the initial schedule.
Be more accessible outside of class; have a hard time contacting her once in a while. Put slides up on laulima, i come to class almost daily but i can't write every slide down in the pace she goes at times, for the final exam be more open minded i feel constraint to talk about political and religious issues in asian countries 2 of which don't interest me as much as other asian topics that i'd love to talk about. It's hard to write a 6 page paper and give a presentation on something you show little interest on makes you discouraged to do the assignment.Write comments down on assignments, sometimes i get a low grade on things like 4.5 out of 5 and don't even know what i did wrong. comments can be short.
-some of the exam questions are easy, as long as the student goes to class and views her slides, student should have no problem passing -bought the textbook, but, didn't use it as much as I would have liked -maybe more exam questions from the textbook so that students are actually reading it
Occasionally on exams there are questions that were not covered in class due to lack of discussion leaders on the topic or time before the quiz. Though I understand you give us a study guide for the quizzes, either covering the material in class or omitting uncovered material from the quiz would help.
Maybe talk to students who consistently come to class late and distract the class. Maybe even deduct points whenever they come to class late. She could be a little stricter when it comes to punctuality.
None
nothing at the moment.
I don't think there should be any changes, i really enjoyed the class and noticed a lot of other students remained at the end of the semester which isa rare at KCC
There are two suggestions I have for Man, which I feel will benefit future students and make the class better. Number one, try to enforce a stricter time limit on the Discussion Leaders, or at least stress to them the importance of respecting the time limit so that we can have more time to finish the class lectures. I really liked the discussion leaders and thought it was a good idea, however, a lot of the groups went way over time and it left very little time for the lecture. It is very interesting to hear what the teacher has to say, because she has a lot of new outlooks on tops that come from her experience. Something that can't really be replaced wit the discussion leaders. Number two, the text book was no help in taking the test. Most of the test were based on basic information about the countries and their cultures, however, the assigned textbook had little to none of the basic information, it was very hard to read or find anything, due to the disorganization of the book. And though some of the articles were interesting to read, they didn't help me get a thorough/broad understanding Asian countries and cultures. My suggestion, get a textbook which is easy to read, well organized, and simple to look basic facts up.
If anything I would like her to put some PowerPoint in the resource center after class is done, because sometimes she rush through the PowerPoint so I sometimes don't have the chance to copy everything
nothing to do change.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She would make sure to answer all question or concerns the students had.
Her grading style is very simple, straight forward, and fair in her tests and short analysis event report papers for each and every student in this course.
She gave us some opportunities to experience some cultures of many countries.
She was very good at communicating, and tried to show understanding to various life problems students had.
she asked if anybody knows if somebody is not in the class and she talks with them to make sure that they are all caught up.
She notifies students that haven't took something or takes note of the people that are lacking in the class. Also, she asks questions that helps us make an insight on what we should do.
-by being accessible by email and by being very much approachable at all times
Didn't really show any concern for students really in my opinion. for the most part all she would do at first would say how we can get extra credit then later that dies down and if you got a low grade she wouldn't say anything about it. a friend of mine had a low grade in her class which she didn't know about until she asked the instructor. to me an instructor shouldn;t have to be asked but should show concern when the student is on the verge of failing so they can get some help BEFORE that grade drops even more.
-very easy going and understanding, no problems at all in this respect
She was very understanding of my situation when I could not effectively participate in an assignment due to certain circumstances and often asks if we know where another student is if they did not come to class.
Spoke to students immediately via person or email as well.
She answered emails and kept in touch.
She often has extra credit make up work for students who are falling behind and need the points.
caring
When i told her i was having issues, she gave me clear instructions of how to improve myself that other teachers didn't.
encourages students to attend class and participate
she asked us what she concerned and try to help us.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
I would recommend Man Yang to other students, she gets along with each and every student. You can tell she cares for her students.
As I mentioned, her teaching style simple but fun to listen to and she sometimes like to explain short stories and cracking some jokes as well.
I do. I think she is nice. Actually I was not interested in some countries so much but I enjoyed to learn about them so much.
I would absolutely recommend her to students, because I found that she was a reliable source of true information, and very encouraging as a teacher. I find her class to be not unfairly difficult.
Yes her class is very good and she explains everything very clearly and simple.
Yes, she is a teacher that is well associated with the subject. She has a fair grading policy and her teaching style is easy to understand.
Absolutely, she's an awesome teacher who knows a lot and makes student feel comfy in her class.
To me i would recommend them only if they are into being open with their thoughts and religion/politics as to me thats what this class is mostly about. The people in our class alone don't seem to be open with their thoughts most seem to just want to go home or dread having to speak infront of so many students. i think what would make this course a lot easier for majority of the students would be to break it down into a 20 person class as 30 people is just way to big for most of the people in here and they tend to feel uncomfortable talking to one another. some form small cliques while others are just out casted to their own kind or to themselves.
Yes, I would highly recommend her to students, she makes learning a non-threatening experience and does not place an extreme amount of pressure on her students. She is fair in her grading and also provides exam reviews that go over what you should be prepared for on her tests.
I would recommend her. Her course is a good balance of challenging and exciting since there are many interesting projects and assignments. I'd also recommend to take her music course since it is equally challenging and also infused in both her Asian Perspectives course and her Music course.
I would totally recommend this class to everyone that I know. She's a pleasant professor to have. You will learn a lot in her class.
Sure, if Asian studies is of interest.
Yes, its a very educational but also fun class to be in.
Yes! She supports each student.
yes
yes
yes, the class thought me a lot about Asia and i think anyone living in such a culturally diverse place as Hawaii should know where lots of our residents come from
Yes, because she is an awesome teacher who knows what she is doing and makes it interesting and fun, even if you have very little interest to start with.
Yes, she is an excellent teacher
I really recommend her class. I really enjoyed it.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
She creates a good atmosphere in each of her classes.
A good looking women to boot, and a very fun and interesting instructor to have.
I learned many things from her class. Thank you so much!
One of my favorite teachers at KCC. Charming in both personality and mannerisms.
She is a good teacher.
She is a great teacher. Hopefully I could enroll into her music studies class one semester.
Doing a good job but a few changes could be implemented to make this course a lot better.
I am pleased with her teaching style, and generally enjoy how sshe manages t get some "music" weaved into her Asian 100 class!
I think she is a great teacher and has many valuable opinions. Many students in the class have gained a voice and opinions since the beginning of class. She values everyone's voice and thoughts and highly encourages us to speak up. The lessons she teaches and the issues she has us discuss and think about are things we encounter in life. Thus, my opinion of her is that she should be well respected and held in high regard as a professor.
Intelligent, promising, kind, funny, hardworking professor!!!!
She is great.
She's awesome, will be taking her class again next semester.
understanding when i was sick and couldnt turn in assignment on time so i appreciate it
she was kind, bright and funny. made this dark time a little bit better to go to her class
Thank you Man! I love you

I think Professor Yang's major strength is explaining the subject clearly.
She is good at making good atmosphere to study.
She really is good at continuing to teach even if the class lacks in participation and really tries to engage her class in discussion.
She's very familiar with all topics that she talks about and she's good at making you form your own opinions on any topics we talk about
Ms. Yang's lectures and PPT aids provided the necessary information for our quizzes and exams, she spoke very clearly and also used the chalkboard for note-taking. Ms. Yang is very professional with her students and does not allow any unnecessary and or distracting talking while she is lecturing. Ms. Yang always greets the class as she enters the room and says a well departure phrase at the end. Ms. Yang is pleasant and is not intimidating and is very approachable for any help someone needs. She welcomes this help outside of the classroom time also.
She knows the feild and the topics and makes the class really interesting.
Music
She's very organized.
Kind
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Nothing.
None
This class is a good class, but the writing homework was a little bit too much.
Should reprimand students who comes to class late consistently to avoid disrupting the class during the class lecture!!!!
I don't find the study guide for the tests that helpful.
I wish that the size of the words in some slides could be bigger and clear, because its hard to copy for the notes.
Making participation part of the grade and implementing group projects just so the students are more comfortable with each other.
Encourage students to discuss more.

Need to be a little stricter in some situation!!!! Especially punctuality for students who consistently come to class late.
She tries to make the class as interesting as possible!

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
she is good
She helps us to understand music better
very organized
I love how she was sure to always keep us updated on new things and was well organized. I loved getting reminders, it was very helpful.
she knows music well.
Very organized. Grades were up to date
Man Yang was available for assistance by responding to my questions and was flexible in terms of the completion of the assignment.
She checked our papers and remained comments clearly.
Online learning thrives or dies on the professor's ability to establish a class that is organized, engaging, consistent, and thorough. Man Yang has all of those qualities and makes for a wonderful online professor.
She is extremely helpful and understanding.
She cares for her students, in which I believe to be a very big strength.
Professor Man Yang really knew about the subject very well. I was able to Learn a lot different types of music from all over the world.
She is good at teaching
It was an online class, but she had everything planned out and organized. so we knew when assignments are due, and what to expect.
She is understanding and not as strict when it comes to assignments. It works well because i am able to work with the assignments of this class. i like that she required us to do an outside activity/performances because it gives us students a chance to enjoy something while learning something
helps students
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
too much homework
I wish the discussion questions were released earlier and have them due at the end of the week. For example, the discussion questions can be posted on Sunday and due next Sunday until midnight.
good
I do think the last presentation PowerPoint was a bit confusing on what to do and how to download it, but other then this, everything was great!
make it more clear where to turn in what. (assignments)
Other than the syllabus, I think it would be good to provide more information and a guideline for each assignment, maybe in your weekly emails. It would be easier to know what you want for the assignment and for the students to follow. Although I understood the syllabus clearly, it may be hard for others to understand.
due date on Saturday instead of Friday
I didn't feel that she responded in a timely manner when I had questions but did she respond eventually.
nmothing
Feedback from the professor goes a LONG way in motivating students. I found those weeks where Man Yang commented on the message boards to be a bonus. While I understand there is a delicate balance between dominating the classroom and encouraging student initiative, more comments from the Professor would have been welcome.
I do not suggest any changes.
None
Everything was on the syllabus but I think it Might be helpful if there was a calendar to see what things are due On what day.
no
nothing really.
i would suggest giving more examples for assignments that are presented that are not an every week assignment. this gives students the opportunity to follow a better format of what she might be asking as far as the assignment goes.
nothing excellent teacher
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
sent back question email very faster
She would write comments
yes
She was sure to always upload grades so we I know our status throughout the year.
she reached out to her students often,
always available
When technical difficulties occurred or if I had a question, she would be considerate and flexible in allowing me to turn in the assignments despite these difficulties that ocurred.
She made us enjoy the class
I appreciate that Man Yang always responded readily to any questions I had along the way.
By her constant follow ups and reminders.
She emails them about her concerns for them and their grade. I thought that was very nice of her.
She always reminded us of what assignments were going to be due, and always informed us about any extra credit that was coming up.
Enough communicaiton
I wasn't doing online assignments the first few weeks so she actually emailed me being worried that I wouldnt do my work.
well
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
yes
Yes because you get to learn more about music from all around the world.

yes because she is a good teacher
Yes! Professor Yang's class was very organized. Her class encourages students to think in a new perspective and to interact with other students.

Yes. Because she is a well rounded teacher.
Yes, she is an organized teacher.
Yes! Especially if your into music! I was able to learn so much of the traditional and Different types of music from all Over the world'.
yes, she is a good teacher.
yes, if they are willing to do online classes. This was the 2nd time I took an online class, but I'm glad I did because I had difficulties with my first one, but she really made easy enough that It wasn't difficult to not do any work.
of course
helpful
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
no
Thank you for being so organized and always making sure grades were up the next week for our continence.

she is nice.
I like this online class it was a good way of learning about music.
18. Other comments:
good
Professor Yang made this class very fun for me. It was interesting to ready about other cultures music from the assigned E-Book and because she had given us the syllabus ahead of time, I was able to keep up and stay a head, preparing my work and getting a head start of the next weekâ??s assignments as to not bombard myself with work from other classes. I liked that she â??reminded usâ?? of upcoming important papers a week or two prior to its due date. The information she relays to us and assignments which are assigned are very clear and in a nerdy kind of way, fun!
I would like to take your class if I have any opportunity!
Overall, this was a fun experience about learning different types or Music and Interacting with other Students by commenting on their discussion!
no
i would also like to suggest that when it comes to a big assignment, if you can grade more throughouly so there are more suggestions on what we can do to improve.

14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
N/A
None
I would like to see more interactions with students' posts in online courses and forums.
none
Since there is so much writing required in this class I would make the class discussion posts require less writing.
I have no suggestions. I liked how the class was formatted.
I just had trouble understanding where some assignments needed to be turned in but once she explained I had no problem after that.
I think just the syllabus should include final presentation instructions.
she always massage back too late
Be more informative about deadline and put it in the announcement.
Every week read the text book, then write some reflection, I felt boring for that. Also, final paper students have to write 3000 words, that is too much!!
I have nothing in mind
Nothing

Mrs.Yang cares about her students such as giving extra helps for piano lessons on outside of the class. She also ensure each students are doing well in the class by walking around and giving comments and examples on piano lessons.
She is very patiently.

14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
I will suggest Mrs.Yang to provide more notes for students. I think this strategy might help students to learn piano and understand what's the standards of this class.
I think that there was too many assignments like quizzes, midterms, and finals all together. It was difficult to work toward perfection when you constantly had to worry about what you needed to do next.
None, she is great.
None. Class is well paced

She often walks around and giving us helpful comments on how to piano in a better way. She also improves me a lot by correct me and explain to me that can help me to moving on in an effective.

As she coached us for recitals she would let us know what we needed work on.
Always willing to give individually advice

Any time I had to contact her for any reason she responded very quickly. I feel it's important for teachers to do this and doesn't happen enough.
When students struggle with quizzes she insures them, us we could only do better. That mistakes happen and we just have to try. Even with presentations with every negative she gives a positive. She notices effort and appreciates curiosity and respects opposing opinions or any in general.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
She is very good at organizing and presenting information about music for the class. I thought it was very thoughtful of her to include Hawaiian music in the first week. I thought it was a good way of making students feel engaged in the class and it was interesting to learn of the music that is happening on the island we are on.
Clear directions and interesting assignments.
Her teaching style was great. As opposed to simply repeating or rephrasing exactly what we'd read in the textbook, she allowed us to think for ourselves, and give our own opinions, which gave me a better understanding of the course material.
Very organized, clear subjects.
I think Professor's strengths as a teacher is being on top of things. I am able to see how I am doing in class because she usually has scores on assignments already up. I also like how she had everything we were going to do in the course in a detailed manner in our syllabus. Referring back to it during assignments instead of having to email her all the time has been very useful.
Very prompt in setting up the homework material each week. Always communicated to us the deadlines, so we didn't miss out.
Compassion.
Very nice and responds to emails promptly
She gives us plenty of time to do assignments and she is so nice that she gave me some extensions on work
She cares about her students
I cant tell
When I have a question, she answered really fast and explain very well so I could know exactly . Also, her corse slabus was very clear, so I could make a plan a lot.
Communicating well with students and informing them of their weekly tasks.
She knows very well about the subject she is teaching. Also, she is a caring teacher and willing to help if students needed.
Being an online class, there was not much teaching. It was more like; here are the assignments and they are due on this day. We had to read and listening to everything ourselves.
Giving us assignments that really challenge us to think about other cultures. It's not just textbook work, it also involves attending cultural events that solidify what we learn in the textbook.
I love that she is very kind and takes the time to answer questions if I had any to ask her. Her syllabus is also clear and detailed so that is really nice to have as a student throughout the semester to look back on from time to time.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
I would maybe consider reformatting all the requirements for the final there was alot to do! Also, the event analysis papers were a bit hard to do since there was only a handful of events we could attend.
?
None.
Nothing
One suggestion I have would probably for her to set up meetings with us. Since we are an online class, we don't get that face to face contact and so I think it would help her and us if we got to meet with her at least once for a mandatory meeting.
In the beginning, get to know you a little bit better as my instructor. The journey of how you became a teacher in this subject.
None.
Nothing
Neutral
NONE
it is very stressful sometimes to have 2 papers due in the same day with the 2 posts on discussion messages. Other than that, I am okay with her class.
interact with your students even though its an online course
She should open the Forums earlier since it's online class. Email back to students. She need to give students more clear direction.
The only change I suggest is to maybe remind the students in the announcement that all the assignments are due this week at **Thursday at 6pm** so that there isn't any confusion. Other than that, Man Yang is a great teacher with a sweet personality.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She is very prompt and understanding when an assignment is late. It shows her dedication to education rather than grades.
Good responses to assignments.
Towards the end of the semester, we had a little bit of miscommunication, but she was more than fair when it came to resolving the issue.
Able to answer the any questions. Accessible to any contact number.
She shows concern by emailing us all the time what the assignment for the week is and what is due (in regards to papers, drafts, etc.) and she gives us opportunities for extra credit work.
Through weekly updates of what was due that upcoming week.
Understanding.
Since this was an online class, she lets students know if they have any questions that we can email her.
By having office hours and listening to students needs
comes and asks you how you're doing
Never
she reply to me kind of fast.
Always available to be contacted and replies efficiently
I remembered that I accident drop the class before, but she is willing to help me get back to her class. this is an online class so I don't really have a chance to meet Professor Yang much.
n/a
Yes, she shared scholarship opportunities with us.
She answered questions when asked.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes, she presents the material in an interesting way and allows for students to engage with the material in a personal way.
Yes. SHe is clear and kind.
Yes, she seems very passionate about her subject, and I really liked the course itself.
Nothing. All good
I would definitely recommend Professor Yang to other students. Although online class is more difficult to learn through, I feel that I have learned a lot through the assignments we had to do. And also because she is fair and seems to care about how we are doing (school wise).
Yes, the online course was VERY VERY VERY convenient. I like how every week we knew what to expect for the layout of the material. Every Sunday we would see the new post for that week and what was expected.
Yes she is a great teacher!
Yes, because she is nice and helpful when students have questions.
Yes because she is really nice and the work is easy
Yes! Her classis very clear, and fun.

Absolutely!
No. Not a very hard work teacher.
Yes I would! She is a great and helpful teacher.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
She seems like a very nice lady.
?
Thank you so much for your patience with me. I apologize for the misunderstanding! I honestly wish I had met you in person before, I really enjoyed getting a chance to talk with you face-to-face!
Nothing, Awesome teacher
I would like to say that I have learned a lot about music, cultures, and instruments throughout this course. And that she is a fair grader and I enjoy the rigor of the course.
Very kind and responds to emails, also I'm sure she would've met me for help during her office hours. She seemed very kind and available.
Mahalo!
Great teacher
easy to talk to
Nothing
She is great
I like her class so far. She gave a lot of work to do but I think it's alright for me. Even though sometimes it is so stressful having lots of homework from her class dues in the same week.
Very involved with the community and campus events. She even did a demonstration of Indonesian instruments for the KCC campus.
That is all.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
I think her major strength is like her mind because during the class, she tried to discuss with her students. For that reason, I can concentrate on her class more and more.
She knows her subject area perfectly; thus she was able to teach us well.
Professor Yang knew the course material and was able to teach it very clearly. She was also able to meet with me outside of class to go over materials I missed in previous classes.
She shows her knowledge in the subject she is teaching, and explains her points thoroughly. She made learning very fun and interesting.
Speaks well and is easy to understand
She is extremely well rehearsed in what she teaches and cares a lot about her students. Also she is very beautiful!
She is able to present topics in a clear way and she made the topic or subject very easy to understand.
Her class always felt like a group activity, which is nice.
She always keeps lectures interesting and her students' attention by introducing various interesting music genera from all over the world. She is very smart and knows her subject area very well, although she is still a student at UHM.
She made me feel welcomed
she is aware of the course she is teaching.
Making class fun with her outgoing personality (:
her class's atomosphere was good for learning. and she knows about music a lot.
Friendly atmosphere for students. Very organized. Stuck with the syllabus. Taught subject in an effective way.
She encouraged us for the classes and prepared the class all the time
She is a really good teacher. I'm glad I took her class. She explains WELL so I could understand well during her class. Sometimes I couldn't understand other teacher's speaking. So I like her class
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
The only change for her class I would suggest is the grading/point system. I feel that assignments should be worth more than one point and that the final paper and presentation should be worth more. The final is worth just as much as a quiz and that seems a little off because the final paper is supposed to be at least 6 pages long.
No suggestions, but I guess if I had to say one, maybe just bring in more instruments to show the students but other than that it was a great class.
More extra credit
The way she responds to some of the students comments may come off as dismissive, but I whole-heartedly feel that she doesn't mean to come off that way.
I believe that there are none so far because she has done an outstanding job.
Her lectures sometimes exceed the class time. I had another class right after her class so I would appreciate if she can finish her class just within the time limit.
It would have been cool to actually see all the instruments of the different musics.
none
None
Make all assignments worth a little more. For example Reading notes:5 Music Identity:10 Event analysis/ Film Analysis: 15 Quiz/Power point presentation: 20 Research Paper: 30 Just an example, but point system should be changed slightly.
No need
Well, I'm satisfied her class so I don't want to ask her to change.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She always smile and kind to students.
She was more than happy to meet up with me to go over the past material needed to study for the quizzes
She was very understanding with every students situation and didn't give us a hard time if we needed compromising within the schedule.
She told us when things were due
Personal meetings with students and always asking her class if they need help.
I believe that she showed concern for students by reminding them of due dates and test dates.
She would ask us how we are doing
To let them know how crucial the assignments are to their grade.
Told the whole class at once that attendance, studying, and doing work on time is very important because there's such little time that if you ever fall down then it would be somewhat hard to get all the way to the top.
she reminded us to do assignments and the due of the assignments. so we did not miss any assignments.
If we did not show active participation, she would worry if we did not understand the material.
She takes care of students for understanding and she welcomed to visit her office and when the students have some questions, she always answers to them well.
When I sent her e-mail for some questions, she answered as soon as possible. I could see it she really care for her students
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
I totally recommend her because she provided lectures (power point) and through these lectures, I could study easily.
I would recommend because she has a lot of knowledge about her subject, so when students ask some questions, she gives good answers. Also, her methods of teaching is great. students can understand well.
Yes I would recommend her class to other students because she actually gets the class involved instead of just standing in front of the class and lecturing the whole time.
Yes, I learned a lot from this class even though I was nervous at first because I thought it was going to be a hard class to take. She explained things thoroughly and made it fun to learn.
Yes because she's very funny and teaches very well
Yes, of course. There are too many reasons why I would recommend her.
I would highly recommend Man Yang to students because she can make her lectures easy to listen and understand. I would be unlikely for anyone to fail the course.
Yes because she sets the class up in a way that makes it easy to complete all the assignments without feeling crammed.
Yes! Her lectures are fun and easy to follow. Quizzes are fairly easy and the listening part is interesting as well.
Yes because she is a good teacher and i did learn alot but sometimes the subject matter got boring.
yes, I have taken her before in piano and she was very helpful if I didn't know the subject very well and if I needed to catch up when I was absent.
Yes, because she is funny, outgoing, makes class interesting by bringing in instruments for us to play or listen, and she is understandable when listening to lectures.
i will recommend to students because she is kind to international students too.
I would recommend Man Yang to other students because she is a great teacher!
Yes. I highly recommend Man Yang's class to enjoy the world music.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Professor Yang has many strengths as a teacher but one notable strength of hers that I have noticed, would have to be being an excellent communicator. Professor Yang has the ability to be able to analyze each student, and know how much knowledge he/she has in music, and from there she would find the best way to teach and help us improve our piano skills, in the most comfortable way, without it being too easy, or too difficult.
point out the mistakes while students playing and help them fix it
She is very good at letting her student know how they can improve and get better
Nice
She is very nice.
find out the mistakes while students playing and help them fix it.
she have strengths musicalityã??
Very good at piano.
She gives all the students including me time and effort in learning how to play the piano and in due time we can play beautiful music.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Maybe in any future Music 121 classes, you could have students pair up with someone and have them try to learn a duet piece that they could play together. Not only would it teach them to play the piano as a duet, but it may also encourage the class to get closer and get to know each other better.
no suggestions
Nothing it's a very solid class
Should try pair up students to play duets
no suggest
no suggestã??
None
nothing
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Professor Yang shown concern for students by being able to communicate with each one of us, getting to know what level we were at in playing the piano, and tending to each students abilities. She knows that everybody does not learn at the same rate and with the same style, so if we ever had trouble with trying to learn something, she would suggest different techniques at doing it, in order to make it easier and more comfortable for us. She was also available outside of class either during her office hours or by appointment, which really helps if you needed extra coaching, especially for the final recital.
talk to students one by one, and ask them if any she can help
She told student that they can see her outside of the class if they need help
personal coaching
One by one to teach student
one by one to teach studentsã??
Gave us opportunity to come in to her office and tutor us.
She gave everyone time in her office to speak to her and time within class to make up and be heard upon what we need to catch up on and what we need to learn more of.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
I would definitely recommend Professor Yang to other students for Music 121, as I believe she is a very good teacher, as well as a very good pianist. Her skills as a teacher and a pianist makes for a good class that you can use to improve your piano skills. She is very encouraging, which I feel is one of the main things needed to improve yourself in any way.
yes, she is an excellent teacher, I have fun in her class
Yes, she is a very talented teacher and I would want friends to also expire nice that
YES best class I have ever have.
i would recommended Man Yang because she's a good teacher,and teach well.

Yes because she very good at piano and will teach you nicely.
Yes, because she is a very good teacher and she is patient to all of us when we are playing slow or too fast. She gives you a whole lot of chances to catch up or make up what you miss in class.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
thanks for teaching me in this semester
She is very willing to help all levels of pianists
Keep up the good work

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
She clearly explains about assignment
Flexible and always accountable when asking for help
music history and background
She is very organized and prompt. Regardless of having a baby in the middle of the semester, not once have I felt that she abandoned the class. SHe must have planned it out ahead of time. Which to me, shows responsibility.
Online class was very enjoyable. It was easy to understand and get through the semester without any trouble.
She is very organized.
She clearly writes what is assigned to the students.
Interesting projects
This is an online class therefore we have to read the textbook to learn. However I had took her ASAN100 class last semester and I think her teaching methods are great.
Dunno, but I hear she's super nice (this was an online class)
Mrs. Yang is a kind and compassionate teacher. She is knowledgeable in World Music, and enjoys teaching.
She knows about her specialties.
I enjoyed your music class. Thank you!!
She is understanding and very intelligent on the subject
Even though it's an online class, she organized well about our all subjects and also gave me some responses when I asked all the time.
she is very helpful and cares about the students
She is very good at emailing back
Passionate about what she teaches & very kind
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
She is so good however sometimes it is hard to contact her
No changes.
Sometimes, maybe, switching up the questions? Or finding a new way to present a summary of the chapter for the weekly posts.
pay more attention to student emails, because some students need help.
Make directions/instructions clearer and possibly create a rubric for the assignments, especially the final paper because it was unclear what was wanted.
I think because this class didnot have any quizes or tests, she had us write film analysis and 2 event reports. I think it was a little too much, because I had other classes to write for and it made me a lot more stressed out~
Idk, anything I can complain about I think she does in the actual class, maybe don't be pregnant anymore? (joke)
None
Too much to write even though it is not the WI class. Although this is the online class, I think it was better we learn something from her using powerpoint or something, for example.
None
I prefer that grades were returned earlier because I didn't have enough time to revise them.
nothing
None
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She sent e mail for students' assignment due date
She would check in every week and would send out reminders
you remind us about the homework
She always left comments to improve our work.
She replied to emails with questions and concerns.
By clearly showing assignments and what is required.
When we emailed with questions, she usually got back to us.
She answers student's questions
Easy to contact
Mrs. Yang was available via her office hours, phone, and email. She encouraged us to participate with other students.
She made sure the assignment was understandable to everybody
weekly announcements
Always available to contact & willing to work through situations
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes she is kind and has lots of knowledge
Yes, very nice.
Yes because she is very nice
Yes. She is one of the few to lay out the course material and her expectations ahead of time.
Yes because she is an organized teacher and has her lessons set out for the semester. Also, I enjoyed the narrative powerpoint that was required of us. It is a nice way to learn about other cultures that maybe werenʻt in the text book.
I would, but i would also warn students to be cautious as to weather or not they can study independently.
No
I think it depends on the person because everyone learns differently. Like I had a hard time because I need clear instructions and I need to know what is wanted, but my friend Anela might like this class because it would allow her to experiment and push the envelope a little.
Yes, I would recommend Man Yang to students because she is lenient but doesn't let anyone take advantage of her. She also is organized and you learn alot.
sure, she's coo
Yes, I would recommend Mrs. Yang to other students. She is a passionate teacher, and I enjoyed her class.

Maybe an ice breaker game in the beginning of the semester
None.
Nothing

Professor Yang's major strengths as a teacher are keeping the students engaged with her presentations also showing examples of different instruments from different parts of the world. Shows concern for her students and gives out a lot of opportunities to earn extra credit.
She explains things well and it helps that she is excited about what she is teaching.
She makes learning about music fun and presents material in a way that is easy to understand and interesting to learn about.
A lot of in class examples of music which was great
Her knowledge in the field
I think when she provides some presentation for us, she prepared those presetation perfectly.
She knew her her materials well and encouraged student participation. She wanted to make sure for all of us to pitch in our thoughts. In class, she always made sure that we understood the things we covered in class.

She knew what she was teaching and she was able to help me when I didn't understand something and was there to see me.
She explain everything very well.
She cares about her students. She has a broad knowledge about the different cultures music and present the musics to us uniformly, i.e.,she didn't show any prejudice or favoritism, she didn't say one type of music is better than the other. She presented the information in a very neutral way.
Very enthusiastic and interactive. She encouraged us to participate and not just listen to lecture.
-She is always carrying a positive attitude -She questions the class to encourage reading the assignment chapters at home
Her class is so funny and teaching is very clear to understand. Thank you.
She knows what she is talking, the class is fun and I learn a lot from her

14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Some changes I suggest that Professor Yang make is to go over the study guide before tests.
No changes.
The only change I could think of is to maybe teach about more popular music that everyone can kind if relate to.
nothing
None
N/A
I don't think I would change anything from this course.
she can speak more loudly.
We didn't cover some of the chapters in the book, such as the music of Europe, Caribbean, Native American, and North America, but instead we spent plenty of time on Hawaiian music. Maybe it's because we're in Hawaii. But Western music is a big influence to a lot of different cultures, so I would recommend covering that, especially since this is a cultural music class and a lot of people from Hawaii have not travel much and may not be familiar with Western (European) style music.
None...
-Show up to more classes on time
I think just add some other lesson like music from other countries that people never heard of
N/A She is absolutely an excellent teacher!
Nothing
Get the students involve more, have more interaction things.
Continue to teach after she gives birth
For the structure of exams, maybe it would be better to have the listening examples first, that way the students can take their time on the multiple choice scantron portion. Also, for the ethnic music presentation, I think that ten minutes is a little too long.
nothing
I can't think of anything that I would suggest to Ms. Yang. Everything went very well with this class.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?

She always asked if their were question or to come see her if we have concerns.
Absolutely!
She always has informed time line and homeworks in advance and in a clear way. So no student should be behind.

She made sure we knew our materials and took the time to answer our questions in class.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
She is clearly deeply involved in the subject of world music, and encouraged from the outset for the students to have an open mind. She was able to take completely foreign arts and give an understanding or context to them so that the class could see it in a different light. She has great student participation activities like playing various ethnic instruments or learning a hula, as well as assignments that encouraged the students to go out and attend world music events.
well organize
She was very passionate of her profession/field of study.
Mrs. Yang's major strength as a teacher would be teaching her material.
Be patiently to teach her students and her class is very clean which important information are should learn for it.
very good information. she is very enthusiastic and has a good clear way of communicating course material through lectures.
She is very smart and very sweet.
She knows what she is teaching and knows her area very well. She helps student and help her student to success in the class. Really good teacher.
She has a very deep understanding in that field as well as very talented and encourage students to participate both in class or out of class activities.
The culture of difference countries
She know's exactly what to do, she has great knowledge in what she teaches, she gets her students involved and doesn't make them feel uncomfortable, she has a great sense of humor. Overall Ms.Yang is one of my favorite professors I have had this semester. She's a very wonderful individual.
She an energetic and enthusiastic teacher who shows passion in her work. She knows her material well and knows how to engage her students.
I think her knowledge of the subjects covered is amazing. She really does a good job explaining the material and answers our questions to the best of her knowledge.
She knows the material very well and likes to engage discussions.
very organized, shared interesting information
She is so kind. She always responses to students' questions until students can understand and solve their unclear points. Also, she always prepares many sources to teach. Students can understand easily about her lectures through her well preparing.
She is a very knowledgeable professor. She comes to class ready. She knows what she is talking about. A friendly professor. She would joke around sometimes which makes the class/environment a fun and a great place to learn.
she is very intelligent, straight to the point, and encourages student to participate in class. she makes the class going in an interesting way. she is very considerate.
We could really trust her with the subject. She seems to really love world music and it was fun learning it from her.
ENTHUSIASTIC, and very informative
Presents her material well to the class.
Her work is straight up.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
none
Perhaps make the final worth more (20pts), offer more EC opportunities (1-5pts), discuss assignments first (taking reading notes BEFORE the chapter lecture was not very helpful, in my opinion). Should also touch-base with students individually.
I can't think of a way to help you with this but i'd suggest you to try and make class more exciting and something to look forward to each day because at times, it got very boring. I still learned but it was boring and made me sleepy sometimes. I apologize for that but if there's a way you could pump up the class, i'd suggest you make an attempt at it.
None
Add a little more variety to classes. Please don't make us just analyze timbre and organology.
No
I have nothing for Ms.Yang to change, she's doing a great job
Nothing really
I don't have any suggestions to make any changes. I like the way she teaches her class.
none
I think that she does not have to change anything.
none. she's very good as a teacher.
I liked that we got to playbon instruments and liked if we did that more.
none, except more time on presentations
No changes are needed.
Elaborate more on topics rather than around the bush.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She always made class discussion open for everyone and answered questions directly. She also made sure that the class knew when every assignment was due, how to use research resources, and how to prepare for quizzes.
clear instruction pervide
The professor had office hours.
Be patiently to teach her students in her office hour until the student understand it.
consistent reminders about assignments and events.
She was always very helpful and took concerns very well.
She helps student when they need help, and help more than I ask.
She's trying very hard to figure out each answers that students propose. Pretty understanding!
Explain in detail
She's constantly asking us if we have any questions or comments or even concerns about something, and if so, she makes time for them after class
She was more than welcome to help any student who needed it. If you needed extra credit or if you needed one on one time you could see her at her workshop.
She told the whole class that if we are struggling with learning the material or preparing for quizzes we can see her during her office hours.
available through email
Whenever students don't understand the material, she is there to lend a hand. When students ask her questions about our topic that are unclear, she would try her best to answer those question in a simple way.
she would email back regarding a note why i couldn't make it to class and she emails students regarding any changes and upcoming events for our class.
she encouraged us to participate in class.
she was nice
Her office was always open to her students that needed any help.
Didn't really.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?

Only if they are interested & fully committed to music. It's a large class, as well, so there is not much one-on-one attention except for those who speak up.

I want to recommend Ms. Man Yang to other students because they can learn about music with having a fan. Not just read a text or study. They will be able to enjoy studying. Also, she has high motivation to teach, so her high motivation encourages students to study more.
I would recommend Professor Yang to students because her class is fun. There was never a dull moment in her class. She discussed different kinds of music from different countries all over the world. Her discussions are easy to understand. Powerpoints are straight to the point. The exams are easy as well.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Man Yang was my teacher in my first semester in college and I consciously sought out another class with her as I not only enjoy music but her method of teaching which is very kind and encouraging to me as a freshman student and strong in that you see her expertise and feel that her strength comes from great preparation and forethought. As it took courage to finally go to college, I have found Ms. Yang to be an inspiring role model as I pursue my college degree. She really goes the extra mile to take note of each students needs and how she can help them improve. Her stream of encouraging words is the water that helps this little first year seedling grow as a college student.
She pushed me to try harder, even though I thought I couldn't or complained. She said to keep trying and practicing and eventually I will get it. She didn't modify things which made me feel like she really thought I could do it.
She is very nice and understandable.
caring, good teacher, patient, clear, knowledgeable
Very nice, she is always willing to help and work with you.
She is very understanding and patient. She loves to help students even if it means to stay after class.
As an instructor, she is very knowledgeable about the course. I have always felt comfortable in class as she has provided a positive atmosphere conducive to learning. She shows great concern for all of her students and is very personable and easy to talk to. I have always been able to come to her without any hesitation if I had questions or needed help. Her strengths include, but is not limited to, course knowledge, artistry, a high standard of technicality, and the ability to communicate, demonstrate, and clarify materials covered in class.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
None, great class :)Fun, interesting the way taught. Challenging but enjoyable. I learned a lot.
N/A
It would be great if she can give out hand out of each music notes in the begining of the class and make us memorize it on and regonize it on the music sheet and on the keyboard. So that it would help us later on to be able to read notes quicker.
Although the course is focused on individual learning. I found it useful to partner up with classmates during down time. As Ms. Yang does her best to attend to all students, I think it would be beneficial to many of students to help each other, while waiting for her to attend them. Other than that, the course is fine just the way it is.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Man Yang really listens to each of her students. She made special efforts at the beginning of the year in both classes I've taken from her to help the students get to know each other and break the ice. This really helped a lot as so often students retreat into their cell phones the minute class ends. I've noticed her extra effort has brought more student communication and I think this makes the college experience more complete. She offers make-up tests in her office and is available for counseling on class work and has stayed 10 minutes after class helping me where I was stuck in an assignment. She is a very devoted teacher and I feel fortunate to have her for my first piano class.
She gives out extra credit opportunities and she always stays after class to help out. She gives out good advice.
Stayed late after class to work longer with students. Contacted students who stopped showing up to class
She will help students any time they need help with music or fingering or anything.
Her office hours are almost everyday which make her very accessible.
She showed each student individual attention and has given them feedback when needed. She has also allowed second opportunities for students. And, she has gone above and beyond to help students simplify complicated material.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
yes- all of the above listed
Yes! She cares for the students and she treats everyone equal.
Yes, because she is a really good piano teacher and it was a pleasure to take her class
Yes, I learned a lot from her.
Yes! She is very compassionate for teachig and willing to help students
I would recommend her to other students. Not only does she make the class fun, Ms. Yang knows how to teach and has the personality to go with it.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
I will always remember my freshman year music teacher with fond affection and gratitude
She is a really good teacher and I'm very pleased with this course and with her instruction and would take it again and encourage others to do so as well
I just wanted to personally thank you for allowing to take this class. I have had a wonderful experience in Mus 121C and I want to wish you the best in the future. You have a little addition to the family on the way, you'll be a great mommy. Thank you again.
18. What two or three single words best describe this instructor?

She is really good at the piano and really helped me when I needed it
She is so kind and her explan is really good.
she is nice and passionate.
She is a very good piano player
She is direct and state students weak points.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Having the final recital before our last quiz was a little weird it was okay, I would have rather had it reversed. A lot of us students took too much time to practice the final instead of the quiz songs and some did bad in the last quiz.
not only to Man Yang but also other music teachers: it would be nice and more efficient if the school installs a camera which is able to film the teacher when he or she plays a piece of music. If so, the students can look at the teacher playing at the same time and learn from that.
N.A
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Immediately, I was won over to this teacher's kind and graceful manner. Her love of music and ethnomusicolgy is clear and she makes it easy for the class to enjoy each culture. I am excited to tell my landlord when I pay rent that I know what Pansori music is! Music is central to my life, so I enjoyed every aspect of this class but heretofore -as a multi-tasking single mom had never given myself permission to learn about music in world cultures. It has affected my songwriting and composition for the better, I think.
She got along with everyone is class and set a good atmosphere in class. She encouraged participation in class,
She knows what to teach during the lecture.
She's had a very inclusive class. Music analysis with personal opinions, she brought instruments to class and let us handle them, group discussions,and activities on rhythm, dance and the International Festival.
Makes the class fun by bringing in hands on activities.
Knowing her stuff. Being an awesome person.
Her explanation is always very clear. She knows how to avoid boring atmosphere so we could enjoy some workshops and students' presentations as well.
Openness, honesty, organization, care.
she is nice and professional. knows how to help and respect her students.
Explains subject in a simple way! made it easer for students to understand. She Knows her subject well,and she listens to students too!
Professor Yang is well educated about music. She communicates with the students very effectively and is clear on the topics in which she presents in class. She is always accessible via email and in person and makes absences, make up work and understanding easily accessible to her students. She is great with updated her students via email about performance opportunities so that they can make extra credit points. Overall, she is a very good professor.
She knows how to make a class fun
she is very kind, and understanding. she is also knowledgeable about each different theme she went over.
She has a wide range of instrumebts, some of which we got to see physically. We attended special musical genres, and she is also very approachable, friendly.
she loves music, know about it very much. also she helps students ver much.
very organized contents with appropriate media resources, so her classes were easy to understand.
Her lectures were always well-organized and whenever students asked questions about the lectures, she gave us a easily understandable answer to it.
Tutorial, good explanation.
She delivers the content of her classes very clearly and makes it very easy to understand.
Her lectures were very clear and well organized.
Her major strengths are making sure each student understands the material well. She provides a lot of visuals and audio for learning purposed and makes everything interesting and fun to learn.
She seems open to showing many cultures with out judgement.
she knew what she was talking about and made it a good learning experience for me in her class
Man yang gives good lectures that followed according to the exams.
She is fun and knowlegable about the music class she is teaching.
Passion, understanding, wealth of information and guidance to resources, awesome personality.
She is very well organized and prepare. She is also prompt when it comes to updating grades.
Professor Man Yang is a young teacher so she was very easy to approach if i ever had any questions. I really enjoyed the classes when we had to hands on class dancing. I personally really enjoyed that and I hope she continues to keep that music 107 tradition. It really brings a lot of life into our academic day. The hula dancing and bollywood dancing exercises was a lot of fun. She was always available outside of class during his office hours. She always encourage us to seek help if we ever had any questions. She was teacher that definitely showed a lot of concern for her students and always wanted the best for them.
she fair
Professor Yang is a very kind hearted, very well oriented professor with her students, her material, and everything she did with our class. She was very informative and fun and being a PHD student she was very aware of how we felt as students and adapted her material towards us which was very nice in our opinion. I really enjoyed having her as my professor for this class.
Very knowledgeable in the subject. Makes it easy to learn.
I thought it was really helpful how she didn't provide the lecture notes on Laulima. Copying the notes by hand were helpful in a way because it helped me recall information more easily. I also enjoyed days where we learned how to dance hula and bollywood dances. Study guides for quizes were also helpful in times of quizes.
She really knew the material and it was great that she provided hands on activities and active activities as well as samples of instruments.
She is very enthusiastic and passionate about her course subject. Also, she is very educated in the matter and always knows how to answer our questions or point us in the right direction to finding the answer.
Beryl's strengths came majorly in the form of enthusiasm, passion, and knowledge of her subject. It was so exciting to come to class each day, because I know she has something awesome to teach me. Granted, this is entirely a fabulous section of education - where else do we get to analyze and learn about musical influence through world cultures?! Her passion was contagious, and encouraged me to keep at it, because there's always something awesome to learn. Also, she is very empathetic to us, having been a long time student herself. It seems many teachers, once they're not students anymore, forget how stressful it can be to try to manage everything all at the same time. However, she was very understanding with all of our needs.
Professor Yang knew the subject area very well. She is also well organized which helped with the classes. I liked how she provided examples of instruments and made us think for ourselves.
She make her lectures very interesting by telling her own experience on the music field.
good power points
She is really fair teacher. She is soooooooo nice teacher. I love her very much.
She is very helpful and kind, and talented as a musician herself. Her love of ethnomusicology pours through in her class teaching.
She gives a fun atmosphere for students to learn. She often joke with her students but still makes a point on the lecture being discussed. She has her schedule that she follows, which can make student do advance work and not cram.
She's really nice! Also, very knowledgeable about her field of study.
Showing us good examples to have a better understanding of the topic.
Her passion for the subject taught, and how she has the class participate in discussions.
She has great activities. Her powerpoint are easy to follow.
Great professor, knew her stuff, and thought us really well. I learned a lot from her.
She knows the subject she teaches well, very engaging, fair grader, and passion for what she teaches shows in each lecture.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
can't think of anything. her kind and gentle manner are an inspiration for me to be more gentle and quiet myself.
I don't think there should be any changes, this semester was fun and i enjoyed her class.
Maybe create a google document with a collection of youtube and other media examples of muisc we haven't been able to cover in class.
Less lectures
Less chat and more music listening.
no
None, the class was a joy to come to.
she is good
None.
nothing really, i loved her class
none
further explanation of computer systems used and compatibility, for the older student, would be helpful.
nothing.
No change, everything perfect
No changes.
None
Nothing, she does a great job.
no she i a awesome teacher i was glad to learn form her
No Changes as to say on how the subject is being thought, but here is a thought to consider. I believe in the syllabus it does not mention it but, how this course should be described a little more and inform the student that the approach on culture by the means of studying culture through, ritual music, deity worship of various nationalities. just to consider those who do not want to participate in such practices.
I can't think of any changes if anything the more hands on dancing would be better for the class and make it even more interesting.
no change
None she was great.
none
None. Her course is superb.
Keep at it, and maybe be a little more aggressive in asking for student participation. I feel awful, my class was so so so quiet when it came to class discussions. Sometimes I felt like I was the only one participating. I think with a little more encouragement (maybe a greater amount of points placed on class participation?) the class may chip in a little more.
Passing around the sign-in sheet right when class starts
No thing to suggest because he is perfect already.
I can't really think of any.
No changes are needed.
N/A
no
more hands assignment. say like when we learned how to dance and stuff, i like when we did that it made it more fun and interesting
none
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
in many, many ways. she is always answering students questions after each class and gives so much of her time.
She encouraged students, especially if the student was shy or scared she made it easy to talk and participate in class.
She always seem to be happy to help out students.
Gentle questions, emails reminding about missed assignments, and invitations to come see her after class or during her office hours.
Always giving us extra credit opportunities
Responding right away to emails. Meeting up outside of class for extra help.
We had great chance to understand various music with some experiences, such as dancing or listening to live music.
She was very encouraging, learned student's names, gave lots of extra credit, straightforward powerpoints and study guides, gave loads of helpful announcements and emails.
she creats chances for students to get extra points. she always asks us if we understand or not , and asks us for suggestion. i aksed her for help which is not related to her job, she helped me, and give extra information and suggestion.
She encorages us to do things! She answers all the questions with her patience! She tell us to see her in the office oftenly.
Professor Yang is the most concerned and understand professor I have had so far since attending KCC. I had a really rough few weeks where i consistently missed class because of family health issues at home, and she would email me to check in and let me know what i missed and my graded being affected. She always kept me updated with performances and opportunities for improvement, and she is very straight forward with her intent to help her students succeed in her class. Although i may pass this class with a low grade due to my personal issues, there is no way i could be upset with her because she is such a caring women and wants the best of her students. -Dwayne :)
She always reminded us to do things and always answered our questions right away if we were to email her
if help was needed it was given, in times of emergencies she was understanding and helped you through it. if things needed a deeper explanation she helped you to understand.
Making extra time out of class. Involving us as a groupYes
she is always here for help us.
She take times for us if we have question or need helps.
She made her time available for any students who needed help with anything, and she always attempted to her lectures interesting, so students wouldn't get bored.
She always brought her speakers to lectures. It helped us to listen example of music when class speakers did not work. She also, brought many music instuments.
She did a few ice breaker games so give us a chance to meet our classmates. She also encouraged hands on participation.
Always checking in with us to make sure we understand.
she would tell them if they need help to go see her or email her questions
all ways attentive, concerned asking us if the information given was understood and if anyone had any question, also offered her office hours.
She was always available outside of class during his office hours. She always encourage us to seek help if we ever had any questions. She was teacher that definitely showed a lot of concern for her students and always wanted the best for them.
tells grade
She often looked at the bright side of situations, an example of this would be say a student was not doing good at the beginning of the semester she often attempted to cheer them on and encourage them to work harder as she explained that the semester is far from over.
She gave us many extra credit opportunities and was available for help whenever we needed.
She was so awesome! She was so patient with all of us, and the awkward silences in the class, without being angry or upset with us for our lack of participation. I feel that she really knows what we're going through. It's so fantastic to have a young, hip teacher like her expanding our minds. It really felt like a very well organized lunch date, with lots of great topics to discuss. It was very friendly, with the perfect mix of casual and formal settings.
She is concerned about students very much. She tries to encourage students listen to difference culture music.
She offered time after class to help students, and also replied to emails very quickly.
She would write comments next our grades in the gradbook on laulilma.
She tell us about assiginments every week and always emails us with notifcations.
She always made sure to tell us about our assignments and if we did bad on something to check up with her and make sure everything was okay.
Informed us of deadlines ahead of time, was very accessible to students (answered emails quickly and explained all that was expected of us)
