*Note that the ratings aren't accurate because teachers that are terribly easy/hard aren't really reflected by the ratings*

He is the best music teacher I have ever had. He actually helps you if you can't play very well. He doesn't yell at you for not being able to play something he actually teaches you to do it. I can't say enough good things. I'll miss having him.

Shreyan... Very good teacher. Just do the practice slips correctly and do extra and you got yourself an A. Just remember to not talk a lot and make unnecessary noise.

He's probably one of the best music conductors ever! He despises the trombones(that includes me...) when the other trombone talks. I am just sitting next to one of the loudest talkers and have about 65 pairs of eyeballs staring at me! I hope he doesn't recognize me as one of the loud ones.

Mr. Lorigan is an amazing music director. He has a level of patience that is extremely rare among people in general. He always works to improving the band and is able to find many minute mistakes and will work hard to get the results he desires. One of the best music teachers you can have.

Mr. Lorigan is a very helpful teacher. He is very patient even though advanced choir is very talkative at times. He's probably the best teacher at this school, although he could discipline the ones that don't pay attention a lot more. It's going to be really sad when we go to high school...

Ayye...he was an amazing teacher, but I have to say, if you're a flute...then you're just another band person...you don't ever get any special treatment and there are no other ensembles to feature you....>_< It's not funny...flutists don't get a chance to shine in any of the songs he gives....>_< Whyyyy? Anyways..he's okay..whatever..

Mr. Lorigan is a very patient teacher that teaches both band and choir. You can tell he's very dedicated to his work and helping his students. After a while he likes to tease students like making puns out of their names or mention the many phone call pranks-- Anyways. He's a hilarious guy when you get to know him. Although when he's angry he makes the wittiest comebacks. .-. Overall he's an awesome teacher to be taught by.
