He is a great band teacher and gives precise feedback to students. He is also a very nice guy.
He's okay. He is kind of annoying during rehearsals, and he tends to pick really easy songs, but outside of class he is okay. During class, though, he yells a lot if you talk too much, and he plays the songs really slowly at first. Also something that you should know, this isn't really his fault but he has to make you do these writing things where you "reflect" on one of your rehearsals, and those are just annoying as he'll. Other than that, though, he's alright.
His personality reflects what's going on in his life, but in general I think he's a great person and a great teacher.
Dr. Hackel was awesome. I switched instruments in 8th grade and he was amazing at teaching me. If you read this, I want to thank you Dr. Hackel! (And you should all join pit orchestra and be pit manager!)
He's a really good teacher, and as long as you try, work hard, and are polite, you'll be fine.
Dr. Hackel is a very kind teacher, and you can tell that he loves making music. i did a few after school activities with him and they were all very enjoyable!
He repeats everything twice and there's a Facebook page of his quotes. I'll let you make something out of it.
he hates me cuz im not the best at my instrument and just hates me. NEVER TAKE HIS CLASS!!!!!!!!
I. love. Dr. Hackel. He one of my favorite people EVER.
basically if ur in jazz band or pit band or just natrally gifted in music, ur considerd a favorite.
basically if u r in jazz band or pit band or ur just a extreamly good musician also being a good kid..ur A ok for the year. if not, just be a good kid and u might just be ok
He's a great director and teacher, but he has favorites...and I wasn't one of them
In a strange way he really is good and he really cares about the kids. He is a little strange though.
Respect him for going to Iraq. Howerver as a teacher, he is off base. Why a Halloween Melody during the holiday program? Why do you yell like a drill sargent?
his wart is distracting sometimes, but he's still awesome for going to iraq. tends to pick songs that are challenging for only *some* sections rather then all though.
I think that you are a great person for going to Iraq. I will definetly respect you when you come back to school. Come back soon!
the big mr. h!!! good luck in war, i do not know of one single student or staff memeber in this school who does not respect you for defending our country.
I think he was a very good teacher, and he was tough, but he really tought people things. I want him to come back!
yo mr. hackel! you are the best! and now we're stuck with "mr. swell"....AAHH! good luck in Iraq! we'll miss you bunches!!
he's very fair, and treats everybody with respect...good luck Mr. Hackle, if you have to go to war...we'll actually miss you!
If you plan to go to war Mr. HAckel, we all wish you good luck, and a safe trip home.
Good teacher but I think some1 needs to distinguish for him the difference between Band Camp and Boot Camp.
