I am split over Mr. Liberatore. One one hand, he is possibly one of the best choir teachers in the world. He leads our class of mediocre singers to greatness and makes it a lot of fun too. But despite his extensive experience, some things he does are not entirely professional. It seems like he tries to make class enticing to non-singers by shelling out hundreds on food, and holds unbreakable grudges against people without the time or patience to go on choir trips. Also huge seniority policy.

Mr. Liberator is clearly a dedicated musician who puts a lot of time into what he does, yet this attribute does not come without an annoying bit of arrogance. He can be impulsively "moody" (as most ki

He chose favorites very obviously, he was very hypocritical, and taught, when he taught anything, as if we were children.

He expects a lot from students, but he's an excellent teacher who encourages students to improve. Choir is a fun class where I get to make music with my friends.

very egocentric teacher...then again he's the one who said most teachers do it because they love to hear themselves talk. Definitely the DQ of the music dept. *Very* friendly, great to talk with about music;picks his favorites and sticks to his deci

So good! How could you not love Mr. Libs? Choir is the best part of the day, always. He is an amazing teacher. He does get a little cranky before concerts/trips, but stress happens.

Bill was my band teacher from 1990-'94. Now that I am a teacher at Gunn, I realize he was the most influential and inspirational teacher I had. Thx for the GREAT memories, Bill!

Best choir director ever. He DOES have a formidable temper and is prone to going after kids who are...well, innocent. But he's an amazing musician and teacher. I love his class.

He expects you to know everything before coming into the class. Really moody and is rude to kids he doesn't think are "musical geniuses". He's never helps you.

Liberatore is extremely friendly, his classes are never boring, and always has something to say. Music theory maybe tough for some, but it was a breeze for me.
