Mr. Driscoll is the best music teacher I have EVER had. He knows what he's talking about, and if you bother/annoy him, dont expect to be treated like everyone else, it's really that simple. But he's a great teacher, and i found his classes to be fun and entertaining. However, although he comes off as a little frightening and rigid sometimes, he's a really nice guy if you take the time. Driscoll's classes are really helpful, but DO NOT be late.

Mr. Driscoll lacks respect for most of his students. He is incapable of giving much constructive criticism and prefers to put his students down for what they are doing wrong rather than what they are doing right. He definitely chooses favorites, and it comes across in the way he grades people. Mr. Driscoll knows music very well, but his teaching style is only built for a select few, whom he gives straight A's. If you struggle in his class, go to him for help, but don't expect much sympathy.

He expects a lot of you, and definitely holds you accountable for your actions. He can be scary but he's such an amazing teacher and conductor and I have learned so much from him in my 4 years in choir. AP Music is a great class, fast moving but you learn a ton. Just go by what he says and don't challenge him until you're a senior. Don't do it. Camerata is amazing and he really knows what he's doing. DON'T BE TARDY. Love u Drisk.

Mr. Driscoll is a great conductor, musician, teacher, and an overall great guy. Sometimes from the outside he can seem a little bit stiff, but once you get to know him - he's a very sweet man and is always willing to give you the help you need. Much love, Mr. D.

mr. driscoll is good musically, however, he has no social skills. solfege is a freat thing to teach, but it doesn't make the choruses sound any better. THEY ARE SO FLAT! HE SHOULD FOCUS ON TUNING. He's an irrational grader and he does not reciprocate the respect that his students give him, and he does not respond well to feedback.

this guy has no criteria for a grading system. I get As on my tests, but get Bs in his classes. He admitted to me that he changes prtcptn grade to give "deserved" overall grade...

Mister Driscoll needs to learn to listen to people.. in a chorus - he can't have a "my way or the highway" attitude.. yeah, he's the conductor, but we're the singers.. camerata '05
