Great teacher, great guy... not much else to say. Band is one of the most worthwhile activities that you can be involved with at MHS.
Best teacher I had frosh year, taught us all not only about music, but also about life. I'll never forget you, and I'll miss you PV!
i love when he screams at us, but his speeches are sort of repetetive (when youre freshmen in college, youll hear my voice in your head blah blah)
the best band director i've ever met. so smart and funny. most memorable class of the year. we'll miss you
He is the best teacher I've ever had. I respect and trust him more than almost anyone I've ever met.
I respect him more than any other teacher, you just have to be dedicated
funny, but has a very boring class and a hard mid-term
really fair, teaches you to be honest, and has you work hard
You can do very well in his class but you need to put some effort into it.
there must be something wrong with him if everyone fails their midterm
Great Guy, Great Teacher, Great Class. One of the few teachers I truly respect!
class is easy but impossible to get a good grade; won't go out of his way
Mr Vala is awesome, very fair, and VERY funny. VERY DEDICATED! A great guy
Vala is the greatest teacher, except when Wind Ensemble doesn;t shut up
Nice guy, but when we grade ourselves we grade so low! He should just do it
I never have really learned alot from him, but he seems to know his stuff
He lets us pick our own pieces and grade ourselves. And what a sense of humor!
