All of you who say he's "mean"... come on. Talk to him outside of class. He will help you in any way. He isn't mean, he is intense about his profession which is the way ALL teachers should act. Great!

Since I used to be heavily involved with the music dept. and got to know McCrann, I know first hand that he is extremely not flexible. He has lost a lot of respect from me in perticular.

Anyone who doesnt like mccrann doesnt get him. he genuinely cares about students, and is a gr8 teacher. He requires just small amount of effort, and if you do that he will reward you with a good grade

I used to think he was good until I switched schools. No comparison, Mr. McCrann just wants GC band to be the best where as in my school now we play in band to learn and have fun.

he's the best. the only reason you think he is "mean" is because he goes out of his way to make you and the band better.

Way too intense. It can be a good thing or a bad thing. Very good at his job. Needs to establish a life outside of the job.

J.Pizzle rocks. He knows what he's doing and he goes out of his way to make the band the best it can be. Many people don't realize that.

He's too fickle. Sometimes he's really nice and then at other times he's rerally mean.

He should make us play more music that we like because either way if we play the music well the parents will still love it.Nobody understands the music we play.
