Summer 2021 - Music Industry 101 was a fantastic course to gain insight on the music industry of today and the past. I honestly wish there were more weeks of class because the topics covered in this short course were so interesting and I am eager to learn more! I am so glad to have been able to have taken this class with Danielle. Her lectures were consistently thought-provoking. Despite the difficulties of zoom, she fostered a great environment for discussions to be held, both in a larger setting with the entire class, and in smaller breakout groups. This course is one of my favorites from my time at UCLA.
Fall 2020 - Danielle was an excellent TA. She was very helpful throughout the entire quarter in helping all student succeed in the class. She was very responsive through email which I really appreciated. An absolutely incredible TA, I would've have loved for the professor to utilize Danielle more as a resource to us. During one seminar, our TA presented on a music topic and it was extremely clear, comprehensive, and interesting.
Spring 2022 - I was new to music performance and the Early Music Ensemble and Danielle really helped to make me feel comfortable with participating and learning new material. She was knowledgable and helpful, and willing to meet with me outside of class and office hours to work on pronunciations and technique. The ensemble was fun and engaging and it was easier than I thought to join and start making music. I learned a lot and would definitely take again.
