He's the best, others probably say he sucks but it's most likely because they can't play their instrument.

His class is a waste of my time. If you're looking to maintain the musical skills you already have, you might as well ditch his class because he chooses about 5 kids in his class who do outside music programs and relies on them. He doesn't care about the rest of the class and only focuses on parts of the piece that are easy and already sound decent. He wastes class time by designating 25 minutes to let the class "warm up" (as in sit there and do nothing).

If you're good at your instrument he forces you to do multiple classes. He lets certain people get away with things and gives others a hard time

He's real cool, and can really help students relax. He's too easy going though, when I had a class with a couple of people who were really really annoying and never stopped talking and always interrupted class with stupid questions, he didn't really do anything. I felt frustrated because we were so far behind in the music because of it, but they were still able to stay in class. Made me angry. Still, if it wasn't for that, he and the class is pretty awesome.

You think he's a bad teacher, that's your problem. If you listen to him, he is a great teacher and will help...just ask. And to you trumpets...he doesn't hate you. He plays the trumpet. He is a perfectionist, I admit it. His jokes are also kind of corny, but you get used to it.

AMAZING teacher! He tells jokes about not caring and stuff, but deep inside he's the nicest guy ever. I got in trouble with the principal one day and he supported me. He's an amazing teacher and REALLy nice. Just do your work in class while fooling around and talking, and you'll be fine. Honestly, there aren't many better music teachers than this guy. He's an AMAZING teacher. You're in great hands =)
