In general, he's a nice person, but he's just really boring. You can mindlessly go through the class as long as you don't to anything TOO stupid.

He is a great person in general, but I dislike how he arranges the orchestra. Basically first violins and first few row violas carried the entire group. The 2nd Violins are absolutely terrible and the front row (they're my friends so no offense) does not have much experience. I rather the violas take over and lead the 2nds. In 2015-2016 school year, our first violins (especially our soloist) and our violas are the strongest section. The cellos are bad and the 2nds are absolutely terrible.

Bailey is not an orchestra teacher. Honestly, TCHS needs better orchestra teachers. Its all about band and this lack of good education is making most of the orchestra students quit or want to quit. During my first year, some people were treating the class as a joke and being extremely loud while were playing and Bailey never said anything until a month before the festival concert .-. I wish I took a different performing arts course.

Pretty chill class. I mean there were two seperate music classes. The good musicians and the not that great musicians. He taught the not that great musicians. And he was ok he knew about music and what to do and was ok with our classes ability of having very little ability to play music.

Mr. Bailey is awesome! He's super nice, unlike Mr. Ferntheil. :O Mr. Bailey does the same scales everyday, but he's an over-all cool guy.

Mr. Bailey is so funny. He knows so much about pretty much every tv show ever created. He's not that good of a music director though, but he is still really funny. Sometimes he says yes but shakes his head as if he is saying no and vice versa, which is weird.

MR BAILEY > MR FERNTHEIL. Bailey actually encourages us like Mr.Taylor so that we enjoy music, but Ferntheil just yells and yells. Plus, Mr. Bailey is a lot nicer and calmer.
