13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
She made me feel comfortable to ask any question, even if it sounded stupid when thought out. She keeps a positive feedback about concerts, or discussions, and i really appreciate her opinion about a topic that i was discussing about. Plus, she understands the unfortuete events that computurs and technology affects us, which she will give an exempt for.
Professor Lyubov Naiditch's strengths as a teacher is constantly reminding her students that their assignments are due.
she is so nice teacher because when i posted comments on laulima, she always response me.
She comments on many of the forum posts and gave feedback.
She encourages students, helps, cares a lot.
Her major strength was keeping us updated on laulima.
Naiditch's strength as a teacher is that she is well educated in music. She understood that some students might not know much about music theory or music in general and was always available through laulima to answer any questions/concerns.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
none whatso ever. I truly enjoyed learning about music and its history.
There are no changes that I would suggest.
I wouldn't mind some extra research papers into topics such as classical style, romantic style, etc. I find writing helps me remember and learn. Others might be different though.
I think she should stick with her style. She is a good teacher!
because it is an online class it is hard to grade her on anything. it was mainly a personal thing...I prefer not to take online classes.
I do not have any suggestions for changes in this class.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
she would email me if there were any problems on tech or availability of tech.
She shows concern for her students through email. Constantly emailing students of their work and commenting positive comments on a assignments.
Gave feedback.
She put her concern on forum since it's a online class.
She emailed us weekly with the assignments that needs to be done let us know any upcoming quizzes. She replies to all e-mails and tries to be as understanding as possible being that she is an online instructor.
Naiditch showed concern for students by informing us about upcoming music concerts that we could attend. We had to write 3 concert reviews and for some us with busy schedules was hard to keep informed about upcoming concerts. Naiditch always showed concern when these reviews due date was approaching and informed us on certain concerts. I appreciated this very much.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
yes, because she is possibly one of the nicest teachers i had. Plus she can communicate with the students with much support and joy.
Yes I would recommend this class to students because it was a very flexible class for me to fit my busy schedule. I was still able to get all my things done on time.
Yes, the course is a good way to survey music.
I would love to recommend my friends to take her class because it's fun! And she is very helpful!
yes I would. those who enjoy online classes. plus she is a great teacher and cares about what you got to say. you just got to put the effort into the work and assignments.
I would definitely recommend this music course to students because Naiditch made it interesting and enjoyable. Naiditch music choices were excellent to learn about.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
I would like to say that I have loved learning the history of music with a teacher like Lyubov Naiditch. She made my learning process a little bit easier and lets me introduce my own opinions about each time period (i.e. what i thought about it, likes/dislikes, etc.)
Professor Naiditch is a really awesome music teacher. She greatly shows her knowledge in this subject area.
I liked your class because it was well organized and clear. thank you.
She was a great teacher! She's been very helpful and patient. She helps you when you need. Very good teacher!
thank you for your time and understanding! I know I was not the best student I could have been in your class. mahalo for the class and life lessons!
Naiditch always emailed me back whenever I emailed an assignment. I really appreciated this because it made me believe that Naiditch really cared about my assignment being finished.
18. Other comments:
I really enjoyed this music class and I learned so many things about the music in different eras. My favorite of all is the classical and romantic era. Glad I took this class. It gave me more knowledge about music literature.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
She is very nice and responds to our posts individually. Not many professors do that these days. Really shows a sense of commitment to the students when a professor does that. Awesome! Thank you, Bert Yanabu
Ms. McSwain is always available to help the students and encourage them. She always gave feedback and encouraged us to participate in the forums.
She is very encouraging.

14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Nothing! She runs a very pleasant class that facilitates academic progression for students!
Make the discussion board points count as less. Some people don't like to respond to others replies.
I really liked that she had concert reviews that we needed to attend concerts and musical performances, if she made it clear to have a variety of concerts needed to attend to, I think it would be a very interesting class.
Make grade qualifications clear. Specifically, what does and doesn't count toward your grade.
Nothing!
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Updates us on our posts and consistently sends us emails telling us where we are within the syllabus. That is very helpful!
Ms. McSwain was always available to help students and showed concern when we needed help or did not understand something. She always gave positive feedback and made the assignments clear.
She grades very fast and responds to forums within a day.
She was very persistent in keeping tabs on each students, I also liked that she replied too most everyone in a timely manner.
Made sure everyone had a chance to complete the assingments.
She answered people's questions, commented on peoples posts, and asked thoughtful questions.

Yes! She is very kind and engages the students to understand music. I am particular when it comes to learning music since I have studied music for a long time. I like the atmosphere she provides for students.
Yes, I would recommend Ms. McSwain because she is a great teacher. She is very knowledgable about music and her teaching shows she has a strong passion for music. The class was fun and I learned about Music Literature.
Yup, she is good at online teaching.

Yes, because her grading is fair, her teaching style is wonderful, and shes is very polite and obviously enjoys her job.

Her major strength as a teacher is knowing the subject very well and teaching the students in a way that we can understand easier and enjoy the class as well.

Nothing really
Having more activites with the students, helping us understand and memorize things better.
More opportunities to receive extra credit in the class would be my only suggestion.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
If a student didn't seem to do well, she would recommend seeing her or give them a retake.
When students weren't able to take exams for legitamate reasons, we were able to retake them at a later date.
She would constantly be asking questions.
She makes students retakes tests when student made a lows score.
She was very nice to all the students and always encouraged us to ask questions. She let us turn in late assignments if we were sick and graded papers and tests fairly.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Sure, It was a great class to take for music majors to fully understand the history of music.
Yes, she's fair.
Yups
Yes, She knows her music history and you know she's willing to teach and help students understand.
Yes, because she's a good teacher, which you will engage yourself to her class.
I would recommend her to students because she helps you learn about the history of the subject and how it influenced what is going on today in modern times.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
The ability to understand a students weakness.
I think that Prof. McSwain's strengths are her willingness to help us learn and giving us enough time to practice before tests. She is also understanding about stage fright.
You can tell she has passion for what she does. She is very talented, and made the piano seem enchanting. She gave us the help we needed, and is patient with everyone.
Knows the subject.
really helpful when needed. she is always concern about her students
She's very kind and friendly, her teaching was very clear, and she always encouraged the students. I really enjoyed her class and appreciated her teaching.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
None... I really enjoyed her class.
I think she could be a little more understanding when students students don't buy the book before the first day of class. I also think she should be a little more strict with the people who come in late or pound on the keys, it really disrupts the other students.
Nothing the class was great
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
By trying to provide each students with individuals attention.
She always makes the time to work with each student, she also schedules time outside of class to work with students who are having trouble or falling behind, even when it's because they were ditching class. she always makes the time to give everyone an equal chance at a good grade.
she made sure we knew what we were doing and that we were okay. She made sure she was reachable if we needed her, and gave us some of her personal tips
she always know how students can improve and she makes appointment with her students in order to help them improve in playing.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
She uses the piano to teach us to play scales, pieces and chords. She also provides us time to practice during class for quizzes and recitals.
She is patient, kind, open, and friendly. She is an expert when it comes to piano, and gives students great pointers on how to improve.
She really knows her stuff.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
No changes needed.
n/a
None
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She reminds students to practice the pieces assigned for quizzes and to turn in free writes.
She always has to know the reason of why students are absent. And when they are, she tells them what they missed the day they weren't there. She is also always available through email and responds very timely.
She meets with us outside of class for extra help and is always available.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
I would recommend students to take her class because the coursework is easy to follow as long as students practice at least everyday.
Yes, definitely! She is the greatest teacher I have come across at KCC!
Yes, she's the best. I've recommended her to a lot of students.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
the methods that she teach the students very good
really knew the course topic
She knows subject matte very well.
Her strengths are her knowledge of he subject are and you know what to expect from the class. There are no hidden agendas or surprises. She is organized and prepared.
Really know about the subject, and encourage students.
She is determined to let her students learn something (and to pass). She really knows her area. I skipped a few classes and when I returned to class, she forced me to call one of her student helpers at the beginning of the class so I could catch up with old lessons. I learned a lot! For reals!
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
no need to change
have an only monday class
Don't show off. Don't make students memorize peices in beginning piano class. The level of subject matter was too hard, and the expectations too great. Many students dropped out.
I think for the beginner level courses that there should be more patience witht the students who are slower paced in learning.
Everything seems very good already.
Nothing! I just think that her students needed to be a bit more sociable. I could tell really that McSwain tried to form a relationship with the class because she would come in with a warm welcome.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
the way she approaches to every individual in the class
always reminding the students to ask for help
I think she was more accessible during class time than outside of class. I think she showed concern during class time by coming to each of us and checking on our progress and helping us with problems we may have.
By asking.
Yeah, she made me the "star of the class" and forced me to call one of the student helpers during class. She also checked if I did set up a meeting by asking the student helper. She was really on it! Oh and she kept on informing those who needed help to call the student helpers.. she also set up dates to get one-on-one advice/help.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
yes, because I can play piano in just a short time
yes, great teacher
No. She was insensitive to te feeling os beginning students. There were advanced students in the class, who were intimidating to beginners.
Yes, she is very nice teacher!
Yes, I would recommend her. She really knows her stuff.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
She is the best music teacher
great job
thanks for everything
Be more compassionate. Try to remember what a difficult instrument the piano is and how hard it is to learn. Also, beginning students may be better off just playing simple pieces. If they decide to commit to Piano 2, then indroduce scales and arpeggios.
She is a very good teacher
She's cool. Her accent is cool too.
18. Other comments:
I STUDIED A LOT ON THE CALSS
She is very professional
Because of construction on campus it is really difficult to get a hold of teachers especially for office hours. So, our only option is email...and that doesn't work out too well if you don't get a response right away. I think it's important to have construction done before the semester starts. I notice that some teachers do not just use email or laulima which is unfortunate so their office is needed.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Mrs. McSwain's major strengths as a teacher were always encouraging and helping her students. She always made she we understood what we were doing and went over the lessons. She also works with us individually for our recitals.
sheʻs awesome. she knows what sheʻs doing and she knows lots of little tips and tricks to students
She is very skilled at what she teaches.
Her love for her student's. She does not profile or put other students on a pedestal. Everyone is treated so well. She'll go to great lengths so that no student is left behind
She is very patient.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
None.
none
Need a better assignment schedule for the syllabus. It's a bit confusing for students to understand the xls document.
none
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She would work with us one and one, ask us if we understood the lesson, and go over it again if we did not.
she talks to us and gets a feeling (:
She expressed her concern for them verbally in front of the entire class.
emails, asking students to call their friend in the beginning of class and basically say "hey what's up are you coming to class today?" Recognizing individuals problems and helping address them
She seems to be happy as long as students attempt to try.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes, I would because she is an excellent painist and teacher! You will definitely learn and improve yourself in a semester with her.
yes. sheʻs probably the best teacher
Yes, to students who have previous piano training. But I would not suggest them to beginners because her expectations are a bit too high.
YES a great piano teacher with such a loving heart.
Absolutely, I recommend because when you need her, she will be there and she will go through entire piece with you with patience. You need help? Ask. She will be there.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
she has an awesome accent
N/A
Even though i've taken Music 121c and 122c from her and i won't get any credits by repeating i would gladly if my schedule allowed. Just such a great teacher.
Nice fashion. :D

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
she describes the teaching information very well
Her sense of humor.
she is a really good teacher who is always making sure that we are learning something and getting something out of the course. She always comes around to check up on how we are doing and reall does teach the material well.
She is a very competent and well trained Piano player.
she gives a european education which could be hard for a community college
shes a great performer and knows how to help students struggling with piano.
Knowing her skill on how to teach another!
She is a very accomplished pianist/musician, and it is evident in her teachings. She pushed students to pay attention (which was good), and her classes were always filled with challenges and new concepts.
As a instructor she was great. She was fair and understanding. I am grateful i was able to take her class. it was amazing the way she played the instrument. She knows her stuff!
Her ability to get the students engaged in their learning is a major strength.
Very great with helping others with technique and skill.
she has a lot of year of experience with the piano
She is one of the best the only piano instructor I have had recently. She is very talented on the piano and I could tell that she has been playing the piano for years and she is from the Ukraine. Russia and the Ukraine have some of the most prettiest women and she was definitely one of them. I enjoyed her class. Her class provided a good atmosphere for learning and was able to cope with her students who had trouble playing the piano. Her lectures were easy to understand and were doable. The course is meaningless if students don't practice, but it's well worth it if students show a lot of motivation and effort into playing the piano.
able to always help you.
fair
She is passionate about what she teaches.
She knows what she's talking about. She leads by example and is very observant, letting us know if we're doing something the wrong way.
She explains what we need to do, helps us one on one to make sure we understand, demonstrates things to make learning easier.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
No change at all.
I don't have any changes that I can suggest. It was a good class and I dont think there's really anything to change.
none
nothing, she is a good teacher
less quizzes to focus on book and recitals
N/a
Be more strict about deadline dates. (example: if a free write is due on a certain day, deduct points if it is late)
no changes. Final recital was scary though.

maybe miz up lesson plans note reading and symbol reading would help
Her guidelines and activities on the units were steady but it seemed like she sort of rushed through the units too fast. She only allowed her students about a couple of minutes to try and play the piece from the book until she moved along to the next page. It was like an accelerated course and only a limited amount of time to practice in class and the rest is up to the students to arrange their practice schedule outside of class. It would be wonderful if she would sit down with each of her students and go over the pieces individually until they understand.

None. She's a great teacher.
N/A
Nothing really.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
she always asked us if we needed help and recommended scheduling meetings for practicing
She always scheduled appointments on her office with each one of us to help in our weakness.
Always goes around checking how we are doing.
She constantly made sure that we wee preparing and practicing for our midterm and final pieces.
yes, she is not as understanding as other.
By understanding personal issues! Thank you!
Encouraged students to contact the student assistant for help, or to contact her to go over any concept that needs to be reviewed.
She helped the class individually when needed. That was very helpful.
offered help outside of class
The midterm and the final recital was the most important part of the students' grade and she encouraged all of us to seek help from the tutor who was available for all days of the week and a phone call away to arrange a meeting. For once, she arranged a schedule to meet her students individually to work on their final pieces for the final recital. She is not a strict instructor and she is very patient with her students and she is more than welcome to help her students if they are struggling. However, she does not like slackers that are not prepared. She may be harsh but it's a sign that she cares and shows concern. She wasn't harsh about grading either. Her quizzes were relatively easy to get an A. It's all about practice.
always able to help you. Scheduling time to sit with you out of class to help Noting who's behind and spending extra time. allowing makeup to test. giving the best care ever
continue to encourage
She always offers help outside the classroom and encourages students to practice.
She met with us privately to help us prepare for the final recital. She helped us out with our group scale tests.
Asking us if we needed help understanding anything and checking up on us one on one while we practiced piano.

16. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
knowing the material well
She is very good at playing piano. She would mesmerize me with her piano playing. She split up the material into different sections so that the parts that were related were in a certain section.
she was able to teach me piano better then any other instructor ive had in the past.
She's very good at helping her students with their skills on piano. She has a very good professional skills in piano and works rigorously hard.
Knew plenty about the subject and made it fun to learn
Her ability to apply the changes that needed to be made, then perform the piece as it should be was one of her strengths. Because I personally found it helpful to hear what a piece should sound like, that way I could change what I was doing wrong or not doing.
She does very good teaching
Lively which would make me want to learn more. She would encourage us to do our best and tell us to keep trying until we get the music right.
Having fun in class, always challenging in a good way, and i always wanted to learn more.
the Piano and connecting to students.

19. How did the instructor show concern for students?
by pulling them aside to give them one-on-one practice
She would let us practice while she walked around the room and helped us individually.
she always came to you if she saw you were struggling, an suggested a better way.
She helped them whenever they are struggling and she does individual practices one by one with all of her students.
Went outta the way to sched help for students after class to prepare for exams
By having students coming into practice, one on one, with her; she demonstrated great concern for the better of the students. Helping them to become better musicians and learn how to play the piano as the "greats" do.
She helped me in my pieces and everything I needed help with
She would work with us after class hours or we would make an appointment to work on our piano playing. For our final recital she made sure we were ready by letting us practice on the grand piano and she would give very good comments as to how we can better our piano playing.
Always seeing if anyone needed help, or if we did need help then she would help us individually after class.
By listing to students concerns and being there to help.
