Mr. Zartman is definitely strict and I would understand why some people don't like him, but he does it for the best. Honestly speaking, without him in the next years, the HHS band is kind of screwed.
He's a petty dictator. He teaches the wrong style of leadership to students, who will unfortunately grow up thinking the only way to lead is by ranting, screaming, yelling, and public humiliation. On
Tough but band will never be the same once he's gone!
Nobody will be able to replace this man. I really like him. Without a guy like him, the band wouldn't be what it is today. A great leader, and very disciplined. Some don't like him, but I do :)
awesome band director. better than any of the others, especially rickard. he actually knows what he's doing and even though he yells at the band, the band respects him. great guy.
He is strict, but most of the things that I've learned came from his classes
Awesome teacher, I can't wait to have him for music theory.
He is amazing! Without him our band wou;dn't be the same! You rock
Mr. Zartman will always be one of my favorite teachers.he expects the most out of his students and makes them want to strive for success.he's taught me so much about life and myself. you rock, mr. z!
30 years ago Mr. Zartman was our band director and one of the best teachers I ever had. He had high standards and didn't dumb down the music for us. He took time to help me feel good about myself.
Mr. Zartman is so awesome, he is really good to know he has a good sense of humor and without himm the band will fall apart, he can be really mean to the whole group but he has to for 300 students
Mr. Z rox my sox. Amazing man and easy to get along with if you do what he tells you to do.
Favorite teacher and scariest teacher all in one. One on one hes such a nice guy and with everyone else he can be really mean...but only if you aren't behaving. Without him our band would be nothing
Mr. Zartman is amazing. all you have to do is do what he asks and behave and he's amazing! I wish I could have him every year...way better than Rickard! I can't imagine band without him!
Excellent director of the instrumental band, but as director should take control of the ENTIRE band, including auxiliaries (dancers) which would include hiring an impartial, competent dance director.
Mr. Z you rock! band is amazing... and mr.Z makes it that way. I couldnt imagine band without him!
what a mean person inside of band, and oh wait outside sometime too
z's amazing, dude...all of you who think he's too mean or yells too much, you try gettin up in front of 300+ kids and keeping them under control without raising your voice.
z is the reason the band is good. even though he can be mean, he does a really good job. hated all forms of concert band, winds, etc with him, though...he's way too into himself.
cmon Haller...stop rating other teachers. It's a little childish don't ya think. Zartman, you da man.
best teacher i ever had. not only inspirational and repected, but also a real person, friend, a knowledgeable teacher. thanks for everything :-)
come on guys .. he might be the hardest teacher ever, but if you had graham or haller in charge, we definitely would be alot worse. [especially if haller was in charge, she'd sue everyone.] "uncle mark" has made us the best in the country .. #1, 2, 3, and 4 in florida anyone ?
tough at band camp, but with 313 kids, you have to be. When not at marching band, he is a funny guy. He's nice and keeps his pacience as long as he can. can lose his cool, but he's still the man.
Alright.. Zartman does have the "best band in the land", but the only reason he does it to fulfil his ego. Zartman is an egotistical jerk.
Z is strict but it pays off.we have the best band around and every band member knows it.we all complain about him but you know he makes us the best LOUD IS GOOD
Mr. Z has to be the way he is Hudson wouldnt be number 1!! Come On someone has to scare the marchers so they dnt mess up!
I graduated from HHS 14 years ago, and still, Mr. Z has the best band around. He was great when I was there and it sounds like he is still great now. Keep it up
I have a lot of respect for him. Don't give him any B.S. and you'll be fine. My best HS memories are in his bands
Totally lacks character. Sure, he may produce a nice product, but I'm sure he's thinking of Mr. Z first.
He is the reason Hudson is #1, but whoa he needs to loosen up. One student is not 300+ on field-- his 1 on 1 with individual students sucks.
as much as people complain, we all know he's the best. i've never learned more from a class, and in the least likely class at that. i will always remember mr z!
in the words of z....."practice doesnt make perfect....perfect practice makes perfect." yeah band...
Z IS SO AWESOME! I HAVE NEVER MET ANYONE LIKE HIM IN MY LIFE, AND HE WILL BE THE ONE TEACHER I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER!
"It's not enthusiastic enough. The audience will fall asleep!"
Sure, he has to be tough to make the band work, but it gets out of control, and some of the things he says and does is absolutely unacceptable.
Hey you football players! Z is the best director in the world -sure he's hard and very passionate, but thats why we're the #1 band in the land! so get over it!
Mr Z is a genious in disguise. Have you ever seen or heard our band?? It is all because of his ways. He knows what he is doing.
Ok he has to be strict. There's 300+ ppl in the band, and he can't be not strict. I know him out of school and he's just a normal being outside of it.
yeah band! he HAS to be strict to keep 300 people in line - even though it's a lot of work , it's really fun to be in band (yeah, i know i'm a geek)
The reason our band is the way it is is because of his temper. He's a great guy in reality.
HEY MR. FOOTBALL MAN!YOU DON'T KNOW MR.ZARTMAN OR HOW MUCH IT TAKES TO BE IN BAND SO SHUT YOUR MOUTH! MR.ZARTMAN MAKES THE BAND WHAT IT IS TODAY! THE BEST EVER!
He's can be nice, but he puts on such a scary front that no one can find out what kind of person he really is. You have to know him as a friend. I respect him.
WORST TEACHER EVER. I can't wait until the school fires him.
Semi okay. Good teacher granted, but lousy attitude and personality. Though when you are a senior, hes nicer and more fun to be with.
Similar to a drill sargeant, but still a good teacher.
Although very short tempered at times, he is one of the best teachers. He is fair,writes great college recomendations, and he strives to make his band the best.
