Comment:
Dr. Wallace has been the most discouraging professor I have had yet in my college career. I came in doing ok, but the second I began to struggle, she told me numerous times that I was "drowning". She plays major favorites; if she doesn't like you she'll make sure you know it. She expects you to know everything, and if you don't, you're screwed

She's really a good teacher. If she likes you, you'll do alright. But you have to work hard for it. If she doesn't like you (usually just because you struggle a little more and need extra instruction) she's pretty standoffish.

A few other people have already said this, but she told me to quit as well. Avoiding her classes throughout my music degree was practically impossible, so I changed my major. Coming into college, I loved music. Taking her class made me dread it.

Comment:
Do NOT take this professor. She is rude and demeaning. On the first day of class, she shared with us how her husband learned to speak fluent Russian in only six weeks by speaking nothing but Russian. Dr. Wallace expects the same commitment from her students, giving no mind to the other five classes we are taking. Be prepared to overwork yourself.

Comment:
While she knows her stuff, she's the least bit inspirational. She's been teaching theory for many years, and expects students to be at her level. Very discouraging and I have been told to "stop trying" by her. Some lessons in theory are easier than others and I shouldn't be discouraged or told to "Stop trying" because this course gets tough.

I do not agree with the reviews on here. Dr. Wallace is a great professor. She is very challenging but music has to be that way if you want to learn. She is willing to meet outside of class if you need to talk and she FOR SURE knows what she is talking about. I think all music majors should take her if they want to strive for excellence.

This is a VERY difficult class, but if you are a Music or a Music Business major, you don't have much of a choice but to take this class from Dr. Wallace. Thankfully, she is very helpful and really wants to see you do well. I struggled with the class, but she was willing to meet with me regularly to help. She is tough, but fair.

Wonderful instructor! I never knew a time when her office door was not open to a student who had questions or just needed to talk. About those who "had to take theory elsewhere," I was probably their tutor, and if they had come to class and stud

I had to take music theory at another college because I could not learn from this woman! She assumes you know 10 times more than you do and talks over everyone's heads.
