LEGEND. Best teacher ever. you wonder how someone can make band fun, well Richy certainly has. WE LOVE RICHY!!
To put it simply...the world needs more humans like Richy
Amazing man. Band used to be a chore with ol' Warren Arbiter, but now, band is one of my favorite classes. He let's you engage in a fun, creative way that no teacher has ever introduced. He is cultivating some wonderful musicians!
greatest teacher in history. band is a must
Great band teacher!! He took 25 kids that really didn't know what they were doing and made them great in less than a year.
He's not only one of my favorite teachers, but one of my favorite adults in general. One of the NICEST people you will ever meet!
Also he knows his stuff when it comes to band.
You can't hate this man! It's emotionally impossible. I've had him as my music director in the musicals for two years, and he's a great teacher. He's always willing to spend extra time on you on songs if you ask him to. He's just a good guys and has helped me be able to put on awesome performances. Richie is awesome!
Easily the best teacher in all of JJ! He really helped me elevate my skills in music and is one of the nicest people you'll ever meet!
It's a shame he didn't teach Middle School music, because I bet a lot of people wouldn't have quit after having Mr. Friedman for a waste of 3 years... Mr. Richardson was awesome!
One of the only ways I was able to get through high school. He helped me become a better player I ever thought I could be and wind ensemble changed my life. Always asks my sis how I'm doing.
Richardson is the MAN. I saw the Da Vinci code with him... he's just the coolest most likable teacher you will EVER meet.
Mr. Richardson is the BEST!!!!! I've always been an above-average player, and having Friedman in MS, I was never able to show my true ability. Now with Wind Ensemble, I can! THANKS JEFF!!!
He IS the best teacher in John Jay High School. He is nice, caring, understanding, just awesome. Everyone should have a teacher like him, because he's a great guy and musician!
Mr.Richarson is awseome! he sometimes lets us sit out and do hw instead of playing which rox!
An overall great teacher, combines fun with the actual learning material. An MVP of John Jay.
dude...dude...dude...dude man he's gotta be hte best teacher...dude.
He is da bomb!!!! One of the greatest teachers at JJHS!!! He rocks!
Richardson rocks,iveknown him 4ever&shared many stupid moments like memorial day03, wind ensemble is the best, he'll do anything 4 me & only some other peeps
He is the coolest man ever! I can say a lot, just 2 much 2 write, but he cares about you like u were his own kid! I've known him 4ever!
Is there anything that this guy can't do? I don't think so...
too bad he has to deal with the concert band, a bunch of people who dont care about music and only want to get their music credit to graduate
The best teacher John Jay has to offer. He's helpful and not just with school related issues. He's the only teacher who I feel comfortable talking to.
Jeff R is so cool there aren't words to say how cool he is, one day i was crying and he made me feel so much better!!! it was very nice..he's the dude
ok anytime you dont want to go to class- he'll get you out! if you don't feel well, he'll help u! He's just a cool guy,o if its ur birthday, dont expect to get away without hearing happy birthday being tried to play by the whole band without music, lol.
Richardson is definitely the best teacher. I dont only consider him a teacher, but also a friend.
everyone loves Richardson!! and they should, hes the best! one of the best that john jay has. if you need help with anything hes right there and hes SO understanding... his lessons are awesome too. you go richardson!!!
the absolute coolest man in the business, always has been always will be, obviosly the best teacher in the school
Richardson is the best. Let's you stay for other classes of his, gives you lessons anytime, and helps you out with other things when ya need it. Get to know him, he's awesome
he's really nice - but at least in our class - he doesnt have very good control of the band sometimes. lets just say the concert band is NOT very good........ nice guy, but... needs to whip the band in shape!
Excellent teacher. Nice. Helps people out when they need it. Doesn't mind doing someone a favor.
you could not ask for a better teacher. he's a cool guy and understands people. he's very easy to talk to, and know how to impove ur music talent, and takes it o the next level.
Mr. Richardson is one of the most well know/well repected teachers at John Jay - he can really relate to you on a personal and a musical level. He has no preference of how good you are - plus he knows all the gossip :)Keep rockin' on Jeff!
I dont have him as a teacher but I know he's a great guy
Excellent teacher, easygoing, will let kids who care learn asnd grow and kids who dont still ahev a good time.
Keeps music challenging yet rewarding for everyone. Keeps the department alive.
