Sep 20, 2013 I have been first chair in my instrument ever since i started playing in 4th grade and have a huge love for music. Coming into high school I intended to play my instrument all four years, but after meeting Mr. Brown I have decided against it. I now dread coming to band and cannot put up with Mr. Brown for another three years. He talks down to his students and is very domineering. He is not helpful and makes you feel very stupid if you have a question. I do not like him.... Flag Rating

Sep 02, 2011 I thought he was a nice guy despite what everyone else said. He does get angry a lot but it isn't that bad unless your the one he is mad at. Flag Rating

Aug 10, 2008 A little overintense, but he knows what he's talking about. If you're willing to learn, he will improve your musical skills. He does dicourage many people though. Flag Rating

May 29, 2008 I am a lot better at playing my instrument than I was last year in middle school, so he teaches a lot about the instrument. However, he constantly yells at us and has discouraged most of his students. Flag Rating

Oct 20, 2004 Sure, Mr. Brown's got some quirks, but he's also got way more experience in music than any of us. Stop being so sensitive and listen to what he's teaching! Flag Rating
