9. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
I think Celia Canty did great with this course. There's nothing that has to be changed.
Since we only have class once a week, just a thought about how we can get everyone to learn the words and song, is to work on one song for about 3 weeks and then change each song every 3 weeks. I believe we skipped around from song to song, which was great, but it didnt help with trying to remember all the words and our parts. Overall everything was great
With a large class as we had this semseter, I might suggest (if it's an option) to employ a teaching assistant who can play the piano. That way you'll have someone else to help manage such a large group and someone to be on the piano while being free to conduct and keep an eye on things.
More UHMC funding could improve this course and it's popularity. I suggest: theater seating(can become theater-standing) for the choir so Celia can be easily observed; risers for performances; a full-time accompaniest; green UHMC Choir polo shirts; sheetmusic provided by the first day of class; a UH supported, planned, advertised concert in a UHMC auditorium.
10. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I liked how there were study tracks to learn the songs on our own.
I like singing for other people and preparing for concerts.
Working together as a group to give a great performance.
I love prepearing for a performance
sharing the joy of music with others
Singing of course. I didn't like so much to be in the front row, but I know it was necessary. Also, the songs were a bit challenging. It was nice to have diverse languages to sing, but 3 was a bit much for me.
auditions for solo parts; memorization of our songs was difficult but worth it; giving our music to our community (esp. the final concert); excellent, inspirational direction!
11. My overall evaluation of this course is...
I wish people really practiced at home. It was a good experience and I'm glad I took the course.
I think that this course was enjoyable and easy to understand her instructions. I had fun and i would take it again next semester.
Its great and everyone should join.
I believe we did a fantasctic job this semester with our chorus class. I would rate with 100% Awsomeness.
awesome
A very good class, fun if you enjoy performing and learning songs from different cultures.
I have recommended it to many others...AAA+++!!

11. Other comments:
This class is so much fun and Professor Celia Canty is so incouraging and happy. It is the one class I look forward to all week.
I think having it in an earlier time instead. Maybe start the class at 5 or 6 p.m. instead.

9. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
no need for improvements
Focusing more on individuals.
NONE I CAN THINK OF....EVERYTHING WAS REALLY GOOD!!!
N/a
N/A
The objective is a commitment. The commitment is being present and respectful towards the persons who are present during the chorus. This is not about individual success, this is about being together with your fellow man and woman in one accord. Every student should have a mandatory prerequsite for chorus. Hopefully, this says alot about Ms. Canty.
I dont think she needs any improvement. She is very knowledgeable in music history and is a wonderful musician.
More music theory.
Not sure she can, this course is already so awesome!!
10. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
Our christmas concert and classmates and class participation
I loved everything!
EVERYTHING......I LOVE SINGING!!
Everything!
Singing with different people and learning new songs. learning different parts of harmony.
I liked singing with other people who have unique sounds. My instructor conducts a community choir open for anyone. We sang with her choir at 2 of our concerts. It was an amazing experience.
performing the concert.
I enjoyed singing with other choirs in the concert.
All of it.
11. My overall evaluation of this course is...
My hope is that the college will continue on with this class
I loved it. Mrs. Canty is a wonderful teacher.
THE BEST...EXCELLENT!
REALLY GOOD!!
Singing just has a way of making everything in the world seem right, and to be able to work as a team with others who love singing, too, was a magical experience. This class has truely inspired me, and has kept me going through some very tough times. Celia is an incredible woman, and I'm so proud to be her student! Anyone would be lucky to learn from her!
On a scale from 1 (one) to 100 (hundred) My overall evaluation: 98.9% rounded to the nearest tenth
Its a good course if you're interested in imroving your singing abilities.
It was interesting.
Excellent!
I wish there were different levels of it so that I could take it over and over while still acquiring credits.
