He was my teacher when i was in 6th and 7th grade, starting in 1994. Kids don't change much and at that age many don't pay attention and take everything as a game or what's important at that stage of their lives, Fun and Games. For the few that actually pay attention he is one of the best. I never went into the music profession nor taken any more music classes but there is one thing i can still do, read music, play chords, beats, tempo, play Simple Gifts with a recorder and not miss a beat.

Mr. Russo, you are getting close to Mrs. Reide on the funniness scale, but on the other hand, you are doing really well as a teacher. I never had such a fun period 7 with you, and I definitely, when it comes to music, look up to you.
Two more things:
1) I JUST WANT MY PIANO GRADE!!!
2) My dad says hi and is wondering where the projector he gave you is

I was one of those kids who could play guitar really well. I looked up to him in 6th grade, and less in 7th then dropped out in 8th. He just thinks he's all knowing about music, but he's really not;)

Seems to be a frustrated musician who never made it in the music business so he became teacher.Teaching is a way to impress kids how cool they could have been.
