mr.eckstine is smarter than you all will ever be and he only yelled at you because youll never make that mistake again. he is brilliant and i miss him
i love mr eckstine. yes, he is tough but is a very good teacher and as long as you dont do anything to get him mad hes awesome. hes really a very funny and nice person.
The best teacher ever! Take music fundamentals because of him. You really will not do anything and he will leave in the middle of class.
Mr. Eckstine is beyond the best teacher. He is amazingly funny.& very amusing when he uses food analogies! ACC champs! heck yeah, all because od the best teacher everrrrrrrrr.
I think he rules! He's great at what he does and really cares for us kids. The music program is growing and the district's FINALLY listening to us! Thank you, Papa John!
If you are willing to work and get better, you will learn from him; if all you want to do is be a slacker, then you will not. What's hard to understand about that????
Best teacher ever. I've learned a lot from him, & not just scales. He's improved the music program here so much, we even got lights on the one band parking lot! Thats pure talent!
He's an awesome teacher. He brought SF's music program from trash to a treasure in 6 years. He's a good teacher and teaches music with enthusiasm which makes us learn.
In Music Fund. he doesn't do anything, i asked him for help and he said, i'll help u tomorrow, and he never did, even after i reminded him. he sounds like a good band teacher tho.
He's hard and needs to go back to Hagerstown, but besides that he's a pretty good music teacher.
mr. eckstine is so cool. this band is so much better than middle school: i am actually playing stuff that i have to work hard at! you rock mr. eckstine!
this guy is great. he's the best bd a kid could have. and he's fun, despite what many say. we don't need someone to baby us, and he knows that. thanks, ecks
Marching band is the greatest thing that I've ever done with my life. Thanks, mr. Eckstine for being apart of that.
hes a great teacher, i came to this school hearing that he was soo mean, but as it turns out, he isnt mean at all, well sometimes, but only when he has to be
This man's "the best thing since sliced bread". he's a cool guy with a lot of ideas and is the most modest band director i've ever had. though i've only had 2.
He Is Coolest Cat since. well there wasn't any cat before him, I believe he has High Expectations for us and he did play through a song this year... funny guy
I've been with Eckstine for 3 years, and it's been cool. Band is one of greatest experiences I have ever been through.
Hes a great teacher...pushes to where you need to be, but is there to help if you stuck on something...despite what he says, tears do actually get to him
Without him the Marching Band could not be where we are now...Thank You...
People really complain about him and how he misses lessons, etc, but he's really a great teacher and he's helped the band improve...A LOT.
John is the Man of all men. I sure do love a Maryland man like him.
One of the best. Gets the band where it needs to be no matter what.
