Greatest Band Teacher I've ever had! Nothing but respect for Him!
He is a really great and respectable Band Teacher/Director!
Very great teacher. Can be strict at times but only wants the best for his students.
Hmmm...Mr. Stella is the counterbalance to Mr. Bernabe's craziness. He knows exactly what he's doing, but could be mean at times. Just try your best and listen to him, because if you don't, then he's gonna be mean.
Mr. Stella loves band and music so much. I think that's a great thing in a teacher. He cares so much and I know he doesn't like it when ppl fall short of their abilities.
I can see why he's getting a bad rap... but I think he's a good guy. I actually really like him, especially since I'm a total brass newbie. He really knows what he's doing... and that's always good for a teacher. He just cares about his job - not trying to make anyone's life hard.
He tries to make himself look better sometimes by screaming at students. If you make a mistake, he never lets you live it down.
i dont do instruments but he is an ok guy sometimes talks too much but is good w/ the mb for the most part
Stella can be cool sometimes. Other times he isn't so cool. He is a good marching band instrucutor. He taught me everything I know about my mellophone.
I think he's really great with the band and even gives the concert band some kinda boost,compared to certain other teachers who only rip them apart.
