Mr Rudolph kickstarted my musical carrier. I have a BA in musicology and just started another bachelor in music from the royal conservatory of Denmark, and I would never have chosen music as a way of living if it wasn't for Mr Rudolphs band.

Keith Rudolph was the best thing that ever happened to Penn Music. I was an underachieving student, so I sometimes caught the worst from him. But it'll tell you now, his presence and words of wisdom were the sole reason I continued in the band. Thank you for everything, Keith.

He was strict yes, but an amazing teacher who truly loved his job. He will be greatly missed. He made the Penn Band what it is today and what it will become. Thank you for everything Mr. Rudolph.

Mr Rudolph is the best band director I've ever worked with! He is the most strict teachers I've ever had and he is intemidating like hell, but that is only because he is so committed to his job! Love!

Mr. Rudolph is one of the best high school band directors in the state probably. He may seem intense, but he just wants you to work. Practice and you'll be fine!

Awesome, by far. Marched with him for four years! Wish I could go back, even if I was upset about not getting drum major. He definetly has a love and drive.

Now that I'm in college and taking music ed classes, I see how much he knows and how useful it is, like making us sing pitches--my profs tell us to do that.

I think everyone is just scared to see how they really feel. I see no way how this man could be liked. He's just not nice to people. Period.

I do agree that Rudolph tries very hard and does quite a good job directing. I can tell by just having him in class he loves music and directing.

He is a great teacher. He is always willing to help you and always strives to get the best from you. He scared me at first but when you sit down and talk with him he is a teacher who cares about your goals and future. Thanks Mr. Rudolph!

Often intimidating. He either likes you or hates you, that's the way it is. Expects a lot from the two Symph. bands.
