Mr. Powell is AMAZING. He has such a passion for music and can work wonders on any group. Sadly, he just retired after 25 years of directing Voices. He will be missed SO much.

He's a great guy, and a great teacher. He taught me "Music History" in the mid 80s. Just don't ever let him catch you playing "Heart and Soul" on the piano in his classroom.

I can't put into into words what I felt during Voices' NYSSMA concert last year. Everything felt so right. I could feel the music all around me- the emotion, the love. Afterwards, when Mr. Powell told us how proud he was of us and how much he loved music, a tear came to my eye. Mr. Powell has an unrivaled passion for music and teaching, and I can easily say that he is the best teacher I have ever had.

Actually it's 60 not 80 kids; maybe there's something called an audition where you really have know your stuff. If taking 10% of the people who try out isn't selective, idk what is. And about scholarships and people who made it, ever heard of Jared Campbell? Jealous much?

Good teacher. Teaches you everything you need to know to be a good singer. Although what he teaches you can be hard to understand, you will get it eventually. K

I spent my whole four years with Mr.Powell and I must say that it was partly due to his love of good music and insistance on perfection that I went into music.

Always seems to get his point across even if you have no idea what he's talking about. Voices is best the second year. (Not third)

Mr. Powell takes his job very seriously, and Voices is very good. He wants everyone to practice, and the people who know their music get the best grades.
