Feedback from students and participants who have attended my courses, lectures or workshops:
“Thank you for all the lectures. Thank you for giving us a great opportunity to think about many things. I would read the materials again during my teaching life for sure. It was quite valuable. I was so happy to be in this course.” Female student, 2020

“While it is not always comfortable when the learning experience is enhanced by reflection assignments and such, it is really beneficial and I have learned to appreciate them, just like unmusical technical exercises. One of the best courses that I have taken in this academy.” Anonymous student, 2020

“I want to give my warmest thanks to teacher and researcher Guadalupe López-Íñiguez. She teaches about constructivism and she is a good example of a constructivist teacher by herself who supports a student to active learning and finding their own creative ways and meanings. Her research has inspired me to think a career as a researcher too.” Anonymous feedback, 2020 (Sibelius Academy’s Praise a Friend Campaign)
“Thank you so much Miss López! Eloquently, expertly and passionately delivered course! Thanks for creating the right conditions for engaging and lively debate this autumn. It has been a pleasure to bounce ideas between the group, most notably when the points of view differed so greatly from my own!” Male student, 2020
“Thank you for a great semester of learning and awesome discussions. I looked forward to the class on Friday each week and I will always remember how many of my views got challenged and how much I learned about what I do not know, yet.” Female student, 2020
“Thank you Adjunct Professor Guadalupe López-Íñiguez for always being kind, supportive and down-to-earth despite busy schedules and pressing deadlines. You are a true professional and leader!” Anonymous feedback, 2020 (Sibelius Academy’s Praise a Friend Campaign)
“I am writing you in order to express my sincere gratitude for widening our awareness about the actual reality of our professional world. Sharing your knowledge confirms the personal reflections of the students (at least according to my experience), and discussing the argued relations of arts education will certainly heal the musicians, will hopefully help the parents of children and, last but not least, will build a healthy learning environment for many kids. Looking keenly forward for the second part of your great lecture and thanking you also for your active and enthusiastic approach!” Female student, 2019

The best and most interesting study course I’ve ever had! I’ve done similar courses for three years and none of them made such an impact on my thinking as this course.” Anonymous feedback, 2018

“Thank you once again for one of the first courses in the school where I felt like I was put to think!” Female student, 2018

“To be honest, I think you made me a better student than I normally am in this kind of course, both because of what you were teaching but also how you were teaching it. As your student I always felt challenged intellectually, sometimes even a bit provoked, which I enjoy very much. I think that when my own ideas are challenged I am forced to think much more by myself.” Male student, 2018

“Thank you, and congratulations! You gave a terrific workshop.” Female participant, 2018
“I would like to thank you sincerely for your inspiring and informative lecture-workshop! It was very helpful to the participants, and surely also for me, I got so much to think about. Wonderful!” Female participant, 2018
“I am in a process of trying to find out what I would love to do, and how to combine the different things I’m interested in. I found your words very inspiring and encouraging; it will (somehow) be possible to do what I want to do, not what others expect me to do.” Female participant, 2018

“It was a pleasure to receive cello lessons from you. I still remember the moment in which you taught me, through Bach’s works, that music is within us, that it is connected to our breath and inner feelings.” Male student, 2018 in hindsight

“Thank you so much for everything. You’re a true inspiration for me, being exactly what I dream to be: a musician and an educator.” Female student, 2017

“I would like to say that I have been able to get awareness of various aspects of music education from your class and surely this will make my teaching more productive for myself and my students.” Female student, 2017
I was extremely fortunate to see Dr. Guadalupe López-Íñiguez last week as part of ResearchWorks presented at Guildhall School of Music and Drama.” Female participant, 2017
“Many thanks and well done for bringing these ideas to the stuffy world of music education!” Female participant, 2017
“Your session was fascinating, and the Q&A session at the end brought up some really interesting speakers, thank you!” Female participant, 2017
“It has been a revolutionizing year for me, and I am still digesting everything. But it has given me the tools to reflect even more and to question more, which has been good for me. My challenge is now to keep rekindling my interest and to dig deeper all the time.”  Female student, 2016

“I am grateful you have given me the opportunity to reflect on my teaching strategy.” Female student, 2016
