I remember Emma to be very selective with picking favourites...basically if you didn't play a classical instrument or a genre of music she was interested in, you'd be on your own for the year/s. Spent a lot of the time just writing music theory stuff on the board and having everyone copy it with no clear explanation or actual application of what she was telling us. I remember modes and chomatics to be confusing, again because of no real applicable use shown to us.
I have never been taught by her but she seems pretty nice. I heard shes not very nice in lessons though.
