Apr 09, 2013 very unpredictable personality. Can be volatile, or very nice. Very strange, I dont like him, for he forgets who I am all the time. Weirdest guy Ive ever seen, always likes girls more than guys. DON'T PLAY ON HIS DRUMS WITHOUT ASKING! you wil immidiately be sent to principal. Flag Rating

Jun 27, 2011 Mr. B is hands down the coolest teacher at Bedford. If you arent a punk and you are genuinely nice to him, he'll have your back no matter what. Most memorable, helpful teacher. My man, MISTA B! Flag Rating

Dec 18, 2010 Such a nice guy! I only had him after school for Pit Band, never for an actual class. He was always so encouraging and would come up after rehearsal and tell me what to work on/doing well with. Flag Rating

Jul 08, 2010 Mr. Butka is a wonderful person, he tries to please everyone, even the kids who are unbelievably cruel to him. He is not only an amazing musician but he is a fantastic teacher. Flag Rating

Dec 01, 2008 I thought he was good teacher at first, but he takes all of his frustration out on his students and acts like a child when he doesn't get his way. I am begging to drop his class it is unbearable. :-(. Flag Rating

Oct 30, 2008 Mr. B is a really good guy. He's not sketchy, he's just alittle shy sometimes. Obviously he might come across as liking music kids more because he knows them better. Flag Rating
