Bruce Lengacher is clearly a talented musician, but he's an unprofessional who fosters cliques and plays politics to the detriment of his students. My son loved music until he studied with Bruce. It got so bad that other students would comment on how poorly Bruce treated my son, and he wasn't alone in receiving this treatment. After 3 years on the wrong end of Bruce's favoritism, my son finally quit all his choir, chorale and other groups. Acalanes would be better without this prima donna.

Love this man!!!!! Bruce is very thoughtful and connects with his students. He explains things so thoroughly and is the sweetest. Students have a connection with him unlike any other teacher as he is so kind and cares about us and our lives. Really a great guy.

Bruce is definitely invested in his students, so kudos there. Choir in general is very political in that Bruce has favorites and they get more opportunities than everyone else. He has some girl who has no background in theatre doing stage management for the musical just because she's one of his favorites. If you don't take multiple choirs then good luck getting into Chamber or BV. Choir also just has a strange reputation for being somewhat cult-like, which I can't say I disagree with.

Choir drama..., unbelievable. Also has clear favorites. If you aren't on his radar? Forget it. Enough is enough.

This class helps me make it through the day. Over the past few years, this class has proved to be nothing but an absolute joy. Add in Kymry, the piano man, and you have a recipe for success. As Bruce would say, it ain't rocket surgery. Take choir.

Favors students that shouldn't be favorited and is obvious about who he hates. Holds things off to the last minute doesn't really teach us anything.

Awesome, but he would be better if he weren't so prone to favoritism. There are singers in Chamber and singers who are in Concert who are undeserving of being there.

He loves his job, and is willing to spend all his time trying to help everyone. He can get really stressed out and critical, but thats only because he cares. Fun and funny too.
