MR LIU. IS BY FAR THE GREATEST TEACHER I HAVE EVER HAD. He is enthusiastic and passionate about his job, his conducting is close to godliness, and he clearly knows what hes doing.He can be strict at times, but this is only for the good of the orchestra. but Hes the reason why I can muster up enough enthusiasm to get my lazy bum out of bead in the morning. Also one of my motivations to become a musician/music teacher.

When it comes to conducting he's godly. However, he has his obvious favorites. If you're not one of them, be prepared to be bashed on for the tiniest mistakes.

I used to use him as an example of exemplary directorship... however, I feel he has unrealistic views on the instruments the students should have. Sadly, he seems to be regressing.

I quit orchestra, something I loved, because of him. I was in the middle orchestra FOR FUN not to be stressed out. He's fake so don't praise his smiles too much, he's really snarling behind them.

I love Mr. Liu. If you don't like him, it's because you are too full of yourself. And the class isnt meant to be easy. Its supposed to be difficult so that you improve your skills.

Mr Liu is tough, but that's why our orchestra is so good. We amaze people when we play, and that's all thanks to his dedication. I love how he isn't scared to spout philosophy.
