I loved Adam DeVault! He was an amazing teacher. He can be strict at times but its only for the better! There is never a dull moment when he is around. I still wish I had him as a teacher or even just as a lessons teacher. He was an outstanding musician.
Really liked Mr. D before he took over for Mr. Z. That changed when he took over due to his personal vendettas to advance his career as he acted very unprofessional when there were conflicts due to other extracurricular. I went from playing varsity, jazz, and marching band and wanting to play and major in music in college to quitting just before senior year. He's not a college music teacher and he needs know his role at least till maybe he gets a college job due to his personal vendetta!
DeVault was one of the reasons I chose Music Ed as my intended major in college. Yes, he may seem a bit brash at times, but you would be too if you taught 200 high school musicians every day. He is absolutely great at what he does, hands down.
If you are one of his favorites (top female player) he will be the best teacher ever, if you arent you will have run ins with him at every turn. Asking for help becomes a chore, he will blow you off in favor of sitting in his office chatting with other students about nothing in general while you struggle to grasp concepts by yourself.
Mr. Devault, you are totaly awsome. You teach us what we need to know, and you are nice about it...most of the time. (I raise my hand all the way the first time.)
Now that I'm not his student anymore, I know that we will always be friends. He is one of the greatest influences of my life, so far.
I didn't like him @ 1st & I still kinda don't. but we have an internship teaching most him of the time &idontlikehim but when mr.D gets up i really want to play
Hes Kind of mean. I try not to diss any teachers on here but he can be nicer. I've only had 2 days in his class and I'm already wanting to drop out of band.....
Mr.D is the best teacher I've ever had. He made me change my career choice to Music Ed and after knowing him as a teacher for 4 years, no one else can do better
Mr. Devault is the greatest teacher ever. He is a great teacher and a great musician. Thank you for being such a great teacher.
Mr. Devault you are absolutely the worst teacher I have ever had. I graduated from Derby High and now attend KU and still you are the worst teacher.
DeVault is the best teasher ever! I model myself after him...because of him, I am going to be a music education major after high school....he's the coolest!!
Your cool Mr. Devault but sometimes you need to calm down ok Please!
He is not only an awesome teacher, but such a good friend to have. Thank you so much Mr. Devault, for everything you've done for us! You're awesome!!!!
All he wanted was for us to be successful and i wanna thank him for that! Thanks for teaching us all that we know.
mr. devault could not be a better teacher...he is a wonderful friend and would love to help anybody he could...i wouldnt' trade him for anything...
i quit band in middle school after he took mr. z's place.
he needs to give us freshmen harder music! and you need to stop bragging bout all the other band classes and how good they play! it gets annoying!
You rule man Your the second best teacher ever! Thanx for teaching me band the last three years.
AWESOME TEACHER....would do anything for you!! Looking forward to next year!
