I have had Mr. Dan Grande for a few years now. There are many benefits, but he thinks that his class is the most important class in the whole building, which bothers everyone else because they have places to be. Don't plan to go anywhere for SHOWtime in his class.
People who dont want to practice, or dont like to play their instrument shouldnt be in band. ppl leaving bad ratings are the ones who havent touched their instrument at home in years.. practice ppl..
My child is not in band because of his attitude. Dan has poor communication skills, yells too much. Kids don't listen, act out. Forget orchestra, 2nd class in his mind!
tough on students, but has many to control. really does a good job putting together a good marching band program. students need to take band more seriously. more theory would help.
Well,he is not my favorite teacher but i think some people are a little too cruel about him. He is very smart when it comes to music. I think hes ok
he talks wayyyyyy to much and the songs r boring unless u like the beatles but i stay in band for 2 reasons: Football games...and the bus rides back home :-D
ask any student who's met him. he really doesn't care about certain people in the band. i will be VERY HAPPY when we get a new band teacher.
He has to be the most ill-tempered person I've ever met.
He's demeaning. Doesn't he wonder why people keep quitting?
