make corrections during rehearsals and music class that led to their improvement.

Overall Comments
It has been absolute pleasure to host Andria in my classroom. She is wonderful teacher who
conducts herself with professionalism above her years of experience. Her excellent musicianship
assists her in the classroom in every regard. She is an excellent conductor and despite being a vocal
major, has been an effective teacher in the instrumental setting as well. Andria interacts with
students of all ages and learning types well. The students and I have enjoyed the time she has spent
at KDM School and we wish her all the best in her teaching career.
