Comment:
Professor Johnson was very nice, and it was easy to get an A in her class, but when I went into Piano 2 with another professor, I was behind the other students. She assigns a lot of exercises to play through, but doesn't take time to explain the proper techniques you should learn from each one.

Comment:
You show up to class to get graded and get your assignment, but by no means do you go to her class to learn. All of the learning is done independently. I would have learned more by practicing for an hour than sitting in her class for an hour. Her teaching methods are absolutely ludicrous, and she's completely unapproachable. She should not teach.

Comment:
Professor Johnson is not a good teacher. If you ask her for help, she'll just give you a page number to look it up. There is a quiz every day, class is boring, and she expects students to figure things out on their own. Take a different prof. for keyboard.

Comment:
Professor Johnson can be very difficult to play for. She stands over you and acts very disappointed if even one note is missed. She does want you to succeed, but sometimes it comes off as having too high of expectations. There is a quiz every class session which is hard when one is having an off day with no leeway. Not recommended for softies.

Expects you to learn on your own, doesn't really teach any method for those of us who have never had any prior piano experience. Hard grader. Stickler on attendance and tardies. Take piano with Gingrich or Stumpo if you can, they are much easier! Marlais is also a better teacher, but she is a hard grader.

She is very nice! But I don't recommend her as a professor! She grades really hard. Anything less than perfect and she burns you at the stake!

Piano for non-music majors - Class is GREAT!! I recommend it for anyone who has always wanted to take piano lessons but didn't. 2nd class moved a lot faster than 263D. Will have to practice to keep up.

The non-majors class is great. I recommend it to anyone who has ever wanted to play the piano. She starts at the VERY beginning. P.S. Her lips are naturally that color!
