I've said hi to him everyday and he doesn't care. He doesn't care about orchestra at all. He acts like he cares about us but he really doesn't.

He does not have any manners. Four years of donating time, money, supplies and not ONE thank you note. Good thing it was done for the students. Extreme ego and plays favorites.

He favors marching band too much over orchestra but tries to hide it. Even though orchestra isn't that good, he doesn't really push us to be better.

Amazing Band Director who has taken the band to a whole new level. His only flaw is he lacks the ability to get to know his students on a personal level.

Throughout my years in high school, I have learned so much more about music (not just to play, but to express it). He is also a great leader in Marching Band and really gives his best for his students

MTAP last year was amazing, it was more like "Burn's Life AP with Music Theory Hw." Band classes are easy as long as you try on the playing tests and show up ontime to class and practice for marching.

I like him not because he can teach, but he's not very strict. He's not a music teacher, but he can put together a good band. He talks a lot, and that's good because you get to just relax and listen

Burn=legendary. He's a nice guy with a good heart. Too bad I hate Richard Saucedo, who doesn't instrumentate realistically. Also, we do too much jazz stuff in Wind Ensemble.
