Very easily misunderstood, horrible personality but great band director, listen to him, he knows what he's doing (most of the time). I have a unique name so he didn't know my name until 10th grade and I got into district honor band the same year so his respect of me went WAY up. Used to be super biased during my freshman year, has now gotten better. Hope he stays for the rest of my high school career.

Kind of a funny man. He is hard to get along with, but he really does care. Don't talk and stay on his good side. If he yells at you don't take it personally, just laugh.

He is a good teacher....but it took me two years to even get a single compliment...I know he has a large class..but he clearly favors a small group of more talented musicians. It been years since some one rated him but as the

An easy class, but without private lessons, he hates you. He also changes moods in the blink of an eye, so watch out! He makes students feel worthless often... an unsavory person.

Creates unhealthy competition between students that are friends. Yells waaay too much and picks seniority over talent! not fair. good at making the band listen.

Harrison is an incredible band director, but he has some attitude problems. I've never had any problems getting along with him, but a lot of people have.

takes a bit to sit in-but he does teach well-i can trace my success (open 4 Hancock, Redman, Mehldau, Scofield, Wasserman) to some things he taught
