I graduated from Davison 1 year ago so it has given me time to have and opinion free of emotion. He can be very frustrating and clearly has favorites. If you do not try and don't sound very good you will be ignored; if you try and you speak up in class then he will pay attention. Orchestra he talks through most of the hour but by the end of the day with symphonic band he will actually start rehearsals. Relies on student section leaders to teach orchestra (good luck if your section leader sucks).

Mr schuster is by far my favorite teacher. Very funny, incredibly knowledgeable, fairly good taste in music, and he has sarcasm out the wazoo and he's willing to banter with students, which makes his class my kinda party, especially since music is my favorite thing in the world. To anyone on here who rates him, ya gotta love schunasty Love ya jimbo! -sincerely Nick Brandes SHOCK THE WORLD
