Dr. J is a good teacher. He's really friendly and has a weird sense of humor. I'm just in mixed choir and I feel like he doesn't push us enough. Sometimes we know we don't sound great but he just says "great job!" with a smile on his face! I know he's trying to be nice but he's like the opposite of Switz. Give us a little constructive criticism!

Several of his students including myself have witnessed his favoritism and sometimes his choices hurt the ensemble. How can anyone say he is effective under these conditions!

DR. J is a great choir teacher and really would be lost without this job. He knows everything when it comes to music and really cares for perfection. very friendly to everyone, but does have some favorites.
