What are you talking about? Mr. Au almost always started on time! His class is so fun and we could always joke around. And I think I know who wrote that last comment. lol. That guy was always messed up in class!

Mr. Au was unprofessional. He always showed up 10 minutes late (even though he'd just sit in his office connected to the classroom), has completely ambiguous grading criteria, and openly shows his dislike for certain students. No patience whatsoever.

Very good teacher who is also enthusiastic about his subject. He knows everything there is to know about guitars and playing them, although he can be a bit nitpicky. Good overall

Hes pretty hard but will help you out a lot. He is very clear as to what he wants. However some of his methods are not very good teaching methods.

Thanks, Mr. Au, for helping our marching band students get to Washington, D.C. to march in the Inaugural Parade. Your organization and planning as Dept. Head has been awesome.

he may be a great guy and a great guitar teacher but as a music department head he fails at his job. He doesn't even understand what it takes to be a true director and he admits it even to parents.

Definitely a good teacher. Too bad there were a couple really annoying guys with bad attitudes this year who ruined it for everyone. He actually tolerated more than he should have from those guys.

I've learned to play my instrument well while studying on my own with partial guidance from his guitar class. He is niether open to requests of student help, nor friendly outside of class.
