He is nice if you dont annoy him. If you dont practice he will kick you out. He always shows up to lessons late or doesnt come at all. If he is even there, he is most likely playing his saxophone. He doesnt enforce rules and lets us go on our phones. He does not let you fix your grades if the music program screws up on them. We also have practice logs and nobody can actually do the time because the program does not count half the time
If you a re serious about music: Stay in the class. He will go to great lengths to make you the best. All others: Take Chorus or General Music. I covered all those lessons and classes, Lenny, Thanl
mayb if u practiced he wouldnt have 2 b so stricked in class. maybe the otha teachers should be more demanding like mr. lapinta. concerts r always gr8
Your a very nice teacher but your a little bit tough. But any way your still a good teacher.
he plays favorites nd im 1 of them nd i still hate it! he tells us to play w. pride wen he takes all our pride away by taking away all of our songs
hide in a corner??? how bout practicing for once. Mr. Lapinta just expects you to do your part and you earn your grade. Got a 100 in chorus?
He was the best teacher I ever had so if you don't think so you should hide in a dark corner somewhere because you are missing out on a learning experience!
Mr LaPinta is an amizingly dedicated teacher and he really has a passion for music..nd 4 that i admire and look up to him~ Steph: Flute player grade 8
