Jim Techau is the only reason I graduated hish school. I was ready to drop out and he wouldn't let me. He cared more than anyone in my life.
Mr. Techau is more like an uncle to me than a teacher. He's an amazing, wonderful person and his choir classes are so fun! He picks fantastic music, and jazz choir with him is unbelievably laid back and fun. It's also easy to talk to him outside of class and he has been a good role model for any musician in our building. Definitely join choir, it's fun!
He is an amazing teacher. He is my favorite teacher. He's really nice and he helps out where ever help is needed. You could sit in his office and just talk! He'll really help you through anything. He's a great teacher, and he makes choir easy! If you don't get it, he'll explain it and it just gets easier as it goes. Techau makes choir fun and I look forward to being in his class every day. He picks such fun songs to sing and he's easy to get along with! He's one of the best teachers at Smoky.
I've never had a class with Techau, but I've talked to him and was in pit orchestra with him. He's super nice. Go to him to talk to if you have a problem and need to talk =]]
Mr. Techau is an amazing teacher. I love Mixed Jazz and AP Music theory with him. He's so talented and he definitely cares about his students! We love Techau! Our other Dad, along with Mr. Grant and Rob.
Techau is awesome, plus he picks out the best songs (i.e. Please Kind Sir)
He is a really great teacher to work with. I loved being in jazz choir cuz he always made us work together and sound amazing. YOU'RE AWESOME TECHAU :DDD!!!
Nice guy but there were many days of sitting 90 minutes with no direction in guitar class. Easy class though, as it should be.
He is one of the most amazing teachers, ever. He was willing to talk to you about anything. I am so sad I don't have this year for jazz. I'm gonna miss teasing him!
He's always there when someone needs to talk. He would give his life to help a student.. he is awesome!
he's a great choir teacher! he expects a lot from us, but he knows we can accomplish it! keep it up, Techau!
Yay Techau! He's teaching me the sound board and helping me through jazz too, awesome guy!
Hes one of the nicest guys ive ever met. I hope to have his class next year, lets just say thats the only way i'll even do choir next year. Hes awesome.
he knows exactly how to make fun of people without going overboard and that the greatest gift of al in a teacher. he's one cool cat.
He's like a big brother type. He's so nice and helpful. He's a great guy and such a wonderful teacher. I wish I could have him next year!
Cool teacher. Has a huge knowledge of music. Very easy to get along with. Makes it fun!
