Overall pretty nice, has a habit of talking way too much - but I feel it's because he is insecure. He cares about what his students think about him, and takes time to express his appreciation for us (through talking). It's annoying but it's not selfish or pity-garnering (seemingly). Firm & passive aggressive if you tick him off, though.

He is hands down one of the best teachers at the school. Is insight on music education is second to none. Plus, he never kicked me out of the marching band even though I ran around band camp with scissor freshman year stabbing at the air. He turned me into a great marcher and worked with me on my marching after school at times. Lastly, he is a former arizona wildcat and alumni of the pride of arizona. You can't top that. Bear Down Mr. Thye.

This teabag talked the whole class and never let us play. He would talk about himself and then expect us to know the music.

Thye's the man. One of the most inspiring, if not the most inspiring teacher's I've ever had, especially through Marching Band. Only flaw is again, the favorites thing. But it's a minor issue.

Mr T. is a passionate man who loves music at a level most people can't understand. While he is a dedicated teacher, he plays favorites like no other. Kids who don't join his "cult" are often left out.

Straight superiors and a Nunamaker. For those of you who quit: how do you feel about yourself now? You were supposed to let the music live on, and you quit.
