His favorite forms of punishment were extreme verbal abuse, throwing objects, and pushups. Hit the wrong note? 50 push ups! Came in a beat late? Jump to your left before you are hit in the nose by the wooden block he has just thrown at your face. He can do these things because he is too awesome to be fired. His choir performed in Carnegie hall, and were names one of the best in NYC. He is terrifying and will leave you educated but also mentally scarred.
GREAT! He will make you cry and he will often throw objects at you, particularly wooden blocks and metal bars, no joke. But he always misses. most loved person at my school, brooklyn tech, but he just retired from chorus. HE believes in physical punishment, such as many push ups and sit ups. He has a memorable quote "WHO DID THAT? WHO CAME IN A BEAT EARLY? MAY YOU BE STRUCK BY LIGHTNING!" He's awesome, and stuff. merp.
He is such a great teacher. If you don't know him, you'll think he's scary. Honestly, I learned a lot. Dibo's funny. His class raised my confidence on singing.
A man that knows a lot about music and loves teaching it. He puts his heart into everything and the result is great. Going into my 3rd year of chamber chorus and its still one of the classes I look forward to! Even though I wish he would emphasize balancing and toning more in his teaching, he is still a great vocal teacher.
A very nasty guy. Screams at people, has an outrageously arrogant and egotistical personality, and generally terrorizes students who happen to get stuck under his thumb. Has a mean glare, and intimidates even his fellow faculty. Horrible.
DiBo is the best teacher you can have. His jokes are so corny, its hard not to laugh at them. There's no way to fail without cutting A LOT. Had him 4 years in a row and LOVED IT! Totally recommended!
On the outside, Dibo is quite tough, and you can tell he doesn't tolerate mistakes. However, he's also a very kind person, and it's a real treat to have him teach you.
Although he threatens you, he's great to be with and very fun! Always lookin forward to his class
I have dibo right now,He tells really bad jokes ALL the time but its not ALWAYS bad. He teaches really well. I can hit higher notes that I've never been able to sing! He's one of the best teachers =)
I think that Dibo is one of the best teachers ever. He is great at what he does and even though he makes jokes and talks big, hes just terrific at what he does
He's really cool.. i get nervous for his tests but as long as youi practice a lot for the sight singing tests and you sing well enough, you'll do great.
This is my first year having him and he threatens to throw things at us if we don't pay attention... Other than that, I think he's pretty kool, makes jokes in class and says that we have to laugh or it's a reason to fail o.O
we get into arguments a lot && there are times when i hate him, but he's overall a great teacher(=
he's the best part of a 1-9 schedule. do something other than sit in a lecture and have this guy drill his techniques into your head. he's the absolute best, wouldn't have any other music teacher.
He has a temper, but he is a great teacher. Just don't do or say anything too stupid. You do well if you try. He is really funny also.
I love him hes my football coach and a very intelligent man. Just dont come late to class T.T
take your 95 and just take deep breaths when he flips out. Everyone has those days... Dibo just has more of them
Excellent teacher, coach and mentor. Keep up the good work, us grads won't forget.
He is great. I ve been in chorus for four years and would never thought of dropping it. He makes days in school less boring, doesn't pressure kids, lets them relax sometimes. He might seem intimidating but eventually you just laugh at it.
Whatever Dibbo sets his mind to he always excells. He a wonderful football coach as well as an amazing chorus teacher. He' sfunny and has a sharp sense of humor. It' s fun to be around people like him.
Debo is the best chorus teacher you could hope for- just don't get a note wrong, or the hammer gets tossed. =)
THIS GUY IS SCARY BUT FUNNY HE IS ALSO A GREAT FOOTBALL COACH GO ENGINEERS
I had Dibo over 10 years ago and I still have fond memories of chorus and Tech. He may have been difficult, but he was certainly memorable.
dibo's the absolute best, chorus is one of the best classes of the day, its a lot more fun than any of my other classes
I think that he sometimes forgets if hes teaching football or courus. But an all around good guy.
hes not da nicest person on earth but hes a good teacher.
mr dibbo is so cool 8]. i love going to his class evryday. lols his technique of threatening us with the hammer, baseball bat and so on is hilarious. we know inside that you are a little scared 5 year old ;]. hehe
A teacher or comedian?? Mad funny, just looking at his expression makes u laugh
Chamber 04-05! Cool (sometimes angry) guy. I enjoy being in the class. Still doing the Dvorak... :)
HE IS SO COOL AND FUNNY but just make sure you don't get his bad side out or "the HAMMER" will come.

He's funny but watch out for the stuff he throws. His class is fun and u rarely have any tests or homework.
I LOVE HIM!!!! Chamber is hard but fun. He's always willing to help, but sort of expects a lot. Throws things, sometimes. Watch out!
Dibo is the best... lol xcpet he won't let you drop his class.. but it's worth it :-)

DIBO'S THE BEST!!!!!!!! Elijah was so fun to work on! But I do think that a few anger manegement classes wouldn't hurt.
He has his days, but he's the greatest chorus teacher you can ever ask for. Dalessandro's just hatin cuz nobody likes him! DiBo rules!! Oh, come see ELIJAH!!!
GREAT Football coach. Kinda........scary sometimes, but hes iight
Dibo? When I was at Tech we called him Mr. D! How times change! What a wonderful man! Think of him often and fondly and how much fun his class was.
Dibo is the best teacher ever, i had chorus for four years only three were good and thats cause i had delessandro, but the funniest thing is when Dibo punks him
can take disses and jokes easily and makes the class really fun! i love singing!
Great teacher................also great football coach
ok. this guy is scary, DONT fall asleep in class, like that he is a good teacher
Who would think the Best Music Teacher was the Best Football Coach?
