He is very good at perfecting the sound of music. He secretly plays favorites and is pretty good at hiding it unless they are around him. Has a passive aggressive approach to certain things that he does not like. He calls kids SNARKY on occasion but hardly says their name. If you show up everyday he likes you but if you don't he gets mad. Jazz band is fun and quite interactive. Marching band needs more water breaks. He doesn't like the concert band and symphonic is his ego.
Mr. Hoover is the best BD that PCH could ask for. He is fully committed to the program and truly wants to see each student succeed. He cares about us, not only as musicians, but as people, both in class and out. His collection of "Hoover-isms" and his random inspirational speeches show a quick wit and an ability to laugh at himself. Unfortunately he is nearing retirement, and when that time comes, everyone will be deeply saddened to see him go.
Hoover is a great guy. He has phenomenal stories to tell and he knows what hes talking about. He is funny and energetic and loves music. He may pick favorites, but if you need help and are willing to ask for it, he is there to lend a hand. As long as you are willing to be a mature person and respect what he has to say, you will love having him as a teacher.
Mr Hoover loves what he does and is great at it. He is my favorite teacher and is very understanding and popular. Whats not to like, hes a happy guy who loves what he does.
Not very sympathetic when a child has special needs or requires him to go above and beyond, he's good at his job but never does more than what he has to do to help students. He chooses favorites and
Mr. Hoover is the bomb, a great guy, and overall extremely well suited to teaching. Anyone who has the chance to be a student of his is lucky.
Mr. Hoover is a really nice understanding guy. His temper can make him really bad, but other than that, he does his job good and tries his ultimate best to make sure everyone has a fun time. Awesome!!
Organized but hes still a great guy.... Knows what hes doing and makes band somehwhat fun..... Knows everything about Central
I graduated class of 98 and Hoover was by far the best teacher I've ever had in my entire life!!!
He is awsome, even though '05-'06 was my first year in marching band, Hoover made me fall in love with it, even when i was dehydrated in band camp! Whoo Hoo!!!
Mr. Hoover is cool..... knows everybody and everything that is going on in the entire building

Only second to Mr. Finbloom but the best music director of PCH ever, even to non musical students! Thank you Hoover
Colorguard is the most awesome class cuz of hoover! He's so cool, and one of the nicest guyz you'll ever meet. And he always has some humor for any situation!
Could not think of a better band teacher. Always has a story, and an interesting one at that. Jumps with rage, and is cool to top it off.
Though i've had my run-ins with him, he's really nice and accepting of everyone!
Best teacher ever, marching band is the best class ever, Hoover is the dominator incarnate!!!!
Hoover's a great guy and makes band fun. Even his temper tantrums are humorous.
Class = easy A, marching season is hard work but rewarding.Doug jumps with rage
