I had him many yrs ago before he got his PHD..he is very cool..although i can see the ego thing. But still he is cool
GAINES IS AWESOME! wind ensemble with him is soo much fun, nicest and funniest person if you do what ur supposed to do
Gains is cool as long as you stay on his good side..i suggest learning ur music and marching in step and together..then u will love him
Gaines rocks! Wind ensemble is so fun and I love lessons more than ever. It's all hysterical. Huzzah!
Not flexible and played favorites. Even ten years ago when I was in MB.
can be strict while doin the marchin stuff, but when u talk to him in a small group or one on one hes a nice guy.
Gaines is always favoring the males and picking favorites. Furthermore, when you play something and mess it up he just yells at you instead of trying to help.
Too impressed with himself to really care whether he is engaging his students or not
I don't understand how bench players on varsity football get to miss marching band but when you're 25th in the county in corss country and run you get penalized
Like all music teachers, obsessed with bad jokes, but class is really fun.
ALthough somewhat strict at times, Gaines can be very helpful, and a nice guy while not teaching
