Mr. Fisk is really nice and he knows a lot about jazz. He inspired me to love jazz and I love his class. However, don't expect him to always be on time or get things handed in.

I only had him in middle school for a lesson teacher but it was always a lot of fun to go to lessons with him. He's so funny and nice. I haven't seen him mad, but I don't think I'd want to. I like him much better happy.

hes a good teacher and usually when hes grouchy, its because he stay up until 3. so just learn not to bother him when he has rings under his eyes.

Best band teacher. Very laid back and humorous. Extremely good at saxaphone and is a great jazz teacher. His expectations aren't unreasonable, and always helps you get to the next level of music.

Mr. Fisk is a really cool and fun teacher because he is not a complete workaholic in the classroom. He also is really good at saxophone and a really informative jazz teacher. He is the best band teacher in the system.

He's not all that bad, but he doesn't pick good songs. And during lessons, we don't do anything because we talk and make fun of him and he tells us stories. Lessons are so fun!

Possibly the best teacher I have this year. Very funny. The reason he can't deal with Concert Band isn't because he's bad, it's because they don't give a crap.

Mr. Fisk is a cool guy, good musician, and fairly poor teacher, particularly when he has to teach people who don't want to be taught. He has a talking dog.
