Knows very little about music. An arbitrary and authoritarian person - pleasant enough if she likes you, but otherwise look out. Is hard on younger students taking mandatory courses who have not played music. Marks based on favouritism first and ability second, and marks material which is not supposed to count for HSC class internal marks.
Thinks she's talented because SHHS has lots of good musicians, but she did very little to help any of them and sucked the enthusiasm out of many more.
AVOID

Now teaches as Russo. Knows nothing about music or geography. Entirely uncreative. Focuses on a few favourite students who become substitutes for friends for her. Strikingly unprofessional, and will be entirely unhelpful to any senior students she doesn't like. Doesn't seem know how music or musical equipment works. She's held in year 8 classes at lunch for not persuading parents to buy enough tickets to her stupid revue. Awful conductor. A terrible gossip. Avoid.

I've had her for years and I understand music, so that argument is pointless.She holds grudges and judges students based on their personalities, not on their performance or effort. Dislike her x10.

I think she is nice when she wants to be, and is a good music teacher. I only think that she is meaner is during RAW, but she makes it work, so you can't complain.

ms gauld is a great music teacher and a really nice person. she puts in tons of effort, for concerts/perfromances so everyone has the information and knows what to do. she also makes raw run smoothly.

Music is hard for teachers as some people are miles ahead of others due to outside of school music. She does her best in an underfunded faculty, and will always help you. Giving 1's is clearly wrong.
