Okay yeah he talks a lot. But he's one of the nicest most passionate players you'll ever meet. you cannot call him a joke. He's very nice and genuine and a good teacher though most time is wasted by his stories.

He focuses more on the band more than orchestra, because he expects us to know everything. Also, he talks A LOT. Overall, he is very nice and lenient but yea he's band>orchestra

I prefer him much more than wicks... the only bad thing is that he takes more interest about talking about his life story than playing music... but on the good side, more time to sleep while he rambles off.

cool and laid-back. he does tell many stories about his childhood, but that gives everyone more chances to raise the music stand and sleep in class. also, hes funny and grades easy.

marching band is a great to meet some folks around school. but, sometimes is too strict during band camp. you have to appear "flawless" on the field. overall, a really nice teacher

Despite the fact that clements can talk for 40mins straight and he can be stubborn at times he's really nice. And if you need something you can always go to him. BUT he does play favorites

Reminisces not too much. Marching Band is a great experience for anyone in high school, you get to know a lot of people and spend time with your friends.

He seems to grade girls easier than guys. He grades alright. He seems to be a nice guy but is pretty weird sometimes.

I like how he lectures a lot. He likes to talk about his past childhood. If you took a test on his life you'd probably ace it. They need to learn how to weigh grades porportionately.

Can be very unfair. Often trusts students too much. Make one bad mistake and he will remember forever. Otherwise, he does have a good heart and does care for his students.

It amazes me how he can talk for an hour straight. He's repitative and says "relatively" too much it's annoying.

He's okay, but kind of biased, he gets very into band/ orchestra and if you tell him you want out, he does his darnest to keep you in. Run really fast.
