Quotes from Former Undergraduate Education and Music Education Pre-service Educators  

“Dr. Guderian is an incredible teacher and did everything possible to create a warm, welcoming, comfortable, supportive and inspiring experience. She was always ready to help, provide clarification, recognize and appreciate her students’ efforts, and was always so encouraging. I also love how passionate she is about music and students’ learning experiences as that has certainly rubbed off on me and made me even more dedicated and enthusiastic about this course. Not to mention the content was incredible and learning to play the guitar was an extremely enjoyable experience as well. I would take this course every semester if I could!!”  

“Dr. Guderian, Thank you. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart for being my teacher and mentor. I am a music teacher because of your instruction and just signed my contract to continue next year.”
