Maestro Tartaglione has a very particular conducting technique and it's sometimes difficult to follow him. He does not manage very well to motivate the players to give their best. On the other hand he cares about the students, he is well natured and a very pleasant person.

He is a nice person and a professor who really likes teaching, but classes are unorganized, unprepared, some of his technical suggestions are awkward, and he talks a lot in a class where we should be conducting most of the time instead of listening to his nonsense. My advice? Don't take this class …more with Dr. Tartaglione... less

Prof. Tartaglione is a nice person, however, he is a very poor teacher. He has little understanding of how a university should function. He constantly makes things up as he goes along and when he obviously makes a mistake, he blames it on others. He is also difficult to follow as a conductor saying …more things like "if I mess up, don't watch." Avoid him less

I agree with the previous reviewers: he is indeed a very nice and caring man. I also agree that as a conductor and conducting teacher he is not very good. He does not have enough experience with professional ensembles (he conducts mostly amateur ensembles) and teaching at a University, and talks …more too much in class and rehearsals. less

He is a noble person, he cares about everyone in the orchestra, and has some experience as a conductor. On the other his rehearsal technique is poor and wastes too much time talking. The reason why he is allowed to conduct the School's orchestra and teach conducting at graduate level is a mistery …more to me. less

He's very nice and clearly knowledgeable, but he can be very picky about your conducting style. He's obviously a sweet guy which helps because the class is kind of boring. Always do your research and listen to the songs/practice beforehand because he wants everyone conducting every class.

Dr. Tartaglione is one of the worst conductors I have ever played for. He also relies on his grad. students for everything; you can't ask him anything because he will direct you to them. On the other hand he is caring, approachable, and has one of the best accents ever!

Very little to no experience with professional orchestras which shows in his rehearsals. Not sure how he is allowed to teach students to play in an orchestra. Good intentions but he gives quite poor advice.

Agree with other comments. Not sure how this person conducting a university orchestra. Hes really not very good and doesnt/hasnt worked with actual professional orchestras on any kind of regular basis. You can tell he cares but is too wild with the stick in a way that would not get him a job in the …more real world. I kind of feel bad for him. less
