Mr. Raecke is an awesome teacher. He's funny, smart, and is really helpful when you don't understand a part of a song. He only yells when you seriously screw up or if you're in percussion ensemble. He's a pretty chill guy who you can tell is very experienced and smart.

He is an awesome and funny band director who knows what he is doing. Sometimes he gets stressed out and annoyed at the band when we aren't playing our best, but overall, he is pretty nice and chill.

He is a good teacher and gives you exams, i don't really like how he gets mad suddenly and then gets really nice then mad again. He does't teach us much and lets Mr. Hill teach us. But i think he is a pretty good director. :D

He assigns test to play in front of everyone weekly no matter what band you are in. Hes not that helpful, he says things, but doesn't tell you how to do it. He also points you out and criticizes/insul

I have to agree, he is the coolest teacher I've had. I like all the demonstrations and stuff he does on the board. I have to agree with the coment from August; he can get rly uptight near concerts.
