Mr Bastien is definitely not my favorite teacher. He has a SUPER large temper that has done nothing but get more out of control since I first started band.
Mr. Bastien gave us students a class to look forward to at the end of the day. He gave us an opportunity to form life lasting bonds with peers as we developed our skills with music. He made sure we were good at what we did and that we had fun while we did it. I miss him as a teacher, he was one of the greats.
He is the best teacher ever :) He is always there for me and has tought me so much! I will continue to love him as a teacher for the rest of my high school career and will be thanking him later in life for how much he has done for me!
Mr. B was definitely special. I went through some hard times and he was there for me. Sometimes he is missed understood because his passion takes over but he truly is a wonderfull human being and exceptional teacher!
My son's least favorite teacher -- he strongly favored some students over others, and didn't give most the time of day.
Mr. B is the best teacher ever! I am do glad to be one of his students. He's one amazing music teacher.
Mr. Bastien is not a man suited to being around children, let alone being a teacher. I'd be more afraid of him hurting a student than giving him a bad grade.
He's okay. Not the greatest like everyone says. His temper makes sure of that. Otherwise he would be pretty cool. He's very ambitious and has created a great program.
Mr. Bastien is the best teacher I've ever had. He's caring, passionate, and funny, and he's always willing to listen. He has inspired many students here, including me. I will miss him when I am gone.
great teacher, even though his temper tantrums are ridiculous
I don't like the attitude he takes with us sometimes. :P
I like Mr. B and I have always loved band, but sometimes he really gets on my nerves. I feel like he can be kinda condescending and act like he's perfect when he's obviously not.
Ya, B is the best. He is like a dad and a friend and you can tell eh truly cares about the people in band and has great pride in us.
Mr. Bastien is THE best teacher EV-ER! My abilities have improved in the short time I've had him, he's funny, like a dad, and teaches a lot about music. He is so good!
Mr. Bastien is an awesome teacher! He teaches well and he's funny!
Basically, Bastien in the man. He is like a dad, you can tell him anything, and he'll give you some kind of advice. Definately one of my favorite teachers of ALL TIME!
Mr.B u rock ur the best band teacher in da world im looking forward to 3 more yearz with u !!!!
i love this guy, hes amazing, hes the best music teacher around! luv ya mr b!
B! Unlike no other... instills fear that soons turns to respect, and teaches us all that mediocrity is not acceptable, especially not for breakfast...
Transfer of information and the circle of 4ths will be burned into my brain for the rest of my life. 50...Bastien's 50!
While he is a complete nutcase, you have to love him. I improved a million times over my freshman year, so he must be doing something right.
