He is really awesome. If you take one of his classes that is not band, it will be the easiest class you take in your life. He really only cares about his band classes, which is great because his other classes are basically study halls. I had him for Guitar in American Music and we got TWO assignments the ENTIRE semester, it was great! Easy, easy A.
YOU GOTTA LOVE THIS MAN.
He's the best strings teacher also join orchestra! Really chill, but make sure you practice at home because sometimes hes not here so you dont practice as much as a class. really nice and always has funny stories to tell. Amazing kids too! they were in tarzan congrats dolan!
While I did not have him as a teacher, I did interact with him through the theater. He is a very nice man, and fantastic with conducting/making music.
Best teacher ever, super chill, super lax. I play trumpet, and this guy is awesome, hes a super good musician and knows every instrument. Hes super easy too, some kids play on their ipods all class and still get a's. Its like a band/study hall period. Awesome class!!!!
Really awesome guy. Really into what he does and appreciates students who take an interest. Puts in a lot of work and the product is always amazing. highly reccommend taking a class with him.
love him! talks to us all the time and is really great. and everyone does NOT get an A in that class, he watches what you do and how you act, even if it doesn't look like it
great teacher and a great guy! really likes his job.
Mr. Dolan's class is an automatic A for everyone. But if you choose to actually talk to him, he is very knowledgeable on a variety of musical subjects. You can gain a lot from talking to him. He also has hilarious stories.
Mr. Dolan is one of the nicest guys around. Easy to talk to, always very light hearted.
I have had Mr. Dolan for six years because he used to work in the Orange Jr. High and he is the best teacher I have ever had. He's sooo nice and understanding and is a great listener when it comes to school issues or anything
Its been an honor having 4 years under the direction of this man, hes an easy going funny guy who cares about the band. the music he chooses shout spirit and honor. Band is something I will remember for a lifetime. Thanks D.
Great band director. Also picks fun and interesting pieces. His other classes are what you make them. Can be nothing more than a joke GPA booster or truly informative.
his clasess are major GPA boosters.i too one of his classes last semester and i hardily ever showed up and i still got an A. instead of taking a study hall always take one of his classes b/c its basically the same thing.
his class is such an easy a, you basically just have to show up to the class. funny stories, great musician, lots of musical experience.
Doaln is the man!!!! save the cheerleader save the world!!!
Mr. Dolan is THE COOLEST!!! Makes band so much fun, knows how to fool around AND knows how to teach :)
Mr. Dolan is one of the best musicians I have ever met, and a truly wonderful teacher. His outbursts of bizarre-ness were quite amusing and enjoyable!!!
Dolan is great. Don't like his taste in music, but 100x better than Schmardel!
Awesome teacher, you can always expect to have fun in his class. Extremely easy to talk to has a lot of funny stories.
Mr. Dolan's class was a lot of fun. He definitely allowed us to relax.
a hilarious guy, standing a towering 6'4", at 400+lb.....whats there to argue?
This teacher rules, easy yet challenging class, loves to fool around and have fun to a point. Most of all you gotta love the Dunken Dougnuts stories!!!
Mr. Dolan is Awesome. The Best Teacher in the School!
note: has 30% hearing loss. has two favorite music playing techniques, loud and louder. nice guy but bad musician on anything other than the drums.
