Mr Gelfer rocks!! He is so nice. He helps you and he's super approachable. He picks great songs too. But if you don't care about your instrument he WILL BE MEAN to you. But if your not good e doesn't care and he will try to help you. If you are good he will like you. If you are good and you practice HE WILL LOVE YOU.
I went to the summer music program and met him! He's so funny and insane u gotta luv him
GELF! He's just awesome, and even if he makes fun of some kids, he's always totally joking and loves all his students. So sad to be leaving him next year.
Its hard not to like him unless you do something really stupid or rude. He is really funny. :D
<3333 funny and soooo understanding! Lets u have fun!
He is a reallt funny teacher... but he can sorta pick on kids in a funny way... you cant take it to heart..... but if you work okay ull jave a really good average. I LoVE HIM
As long as you don't do anything super stupid or act like a moron and you're in the 1st violin section, you're fine. I got a 99 average for the whole year, even though I sat at the last stand of the
insane, but gotta love the guy, think about it guys, what teacher doesnt pick favs?
Gelfer is awesome. His weird/dry/funny sense of humor makes me laugh all the time. Mice... CHEESE!
Get over hit. If you can't finger it you can't do it! He makes playing so much fun!
I don't understand the hype surrounding him. The reason for orchestra is to learn how to play music and enjoy it, rather than being forced to put your fingers in the right positions.
He exaggerates everything and puts on a fake persona... he is nothing like the teacher Mr. Gelfer when he's out of school, then he's just "Phil" and he's a totally different guy.
Im nt sure-ive had some great times with him bt he hates my guts so bad he can really be mean. All of the ppl tht think hes cool only think hes cool cuse hes not making fun of u. hes sorta a mean real
lmao i love him! hes extremly funny and i love the drawings he puts on papers during the concerts
I don't like teachers that put on an annoying persona, so Gelfer gets docked points for that, but otherwise he's cool.
he is a great teacher but im amir and he hates me soo!
I HATED HIM SO MUCH HE MADE ME QUIT ORCHESTRA AND SHE THREW A PAIR OF KEYS AT MR.SUESSER AND MISSED AND HIT ME IN THE FACE! THANKS A WHOLE LOT GELFER!
GELFER ROCKS A THOUSAND TIMES!!!!!! HOW CAN YOU NOT LIKE HIM!!!!!!!!
He wasn't my teacher but was always helpful to me when I asked him ?'s about music. He was a lot of fun to be around!
Great teacher, I had so much fun in orchestra over the years, I'll always miss him
Seems to be somewhere else these days. Not the same as when I was in 7th and 8th grade.Good teacher though.
I love having Mr. Gelfer. He's so funny and out there. And even though he can be a bit verbally abusive, it's all in good fun!
How do you describe Gelfer? I think unforgetable is the key word. HE can be a pain , and usually is, but you can't forget him
Changed a lot since last year, not as happy and not as joking.
I love this guy. He seems so tough on the outside, but on the inside he's made of awesome!
Mr. gelfer is the best teacher in the world. This is my last year in Gelinas and I wish he would come up to the High School
GELFER!!!!!!! okay, all the R-Tards who've been dissing the gelf meister aut to PRACTICE*COUGH*COUGH* and then you might find the orchestra/lesson experience much more enjoyable.
he's funny if he likes you. he tends to single out a few people and pick on them. he's strange but thats pretty much the only thing funny. I dont like orchestra with him too much.
Great time the past 3 years Gelf..now ur gona hav to find a new person to yell at :)
Mr Gelfer WOULD be amazing IF he didn't make fun of me everyday and pick on me. The guy plays favorites with the people that have been playing since they were 2. Be warned, if you're in his orchestra...you BETTER be good, or else, well you're going to have a miserable time
u r sooo funny......but rlly scary to.. o well i luv orchersta.. kinda to honest but we know where to improve!
hahah he is HISTERICAL!! i luv all the drawings, and once he thru those cello thingys at some of the people who weren't paying attention. lol lol lol. he is
Gelfer, you are by far the best teacher in the land. There is no possible way to describe your greatness. Very, Very cool. Insanely funny!
I'm graduating Melville now and I have to say that Gelfer is a GEM of a teacher. One of the main reasons why I'm going into music education!
He's amazing and very talented. He really likes kids and has a lot of patience.
Gelfer! Thanx for everything! The Pit Rox!! I enjoyed cleaning up after your HUGE messes and setting up orchestra. I'll miss you sooo much!
u ppl r evil mr gelfur rocks!!! When we r bad would u want him to tell us were good??? he is so funny and tries to make evey one as good as they can be.
an awsome teacher. is very funny. i really like the drawings he makes at concerts. he can teach ppl music very quick
gelfer u rock! pit 04 was an amazing experience! u made me laugh so much, i loved it! you're the coolest teacher ever!
gelfa is in da hizzle fo shizzle! although he did traumatize me when he threw the stand across the band room when i was setting them up that one morning.
EXCELLENT TEACHER EXCEPT IF U GET ON HIS NERVES HE PENALIZES U
not fair, shows favoritism, picks out one he doesn't like for the whole 3 yrs!
Gelf, u rock mah socks!chamber and orchestra is so much fun! oOoOo...and for next year, get some new jokes :) still luvn yah!
I can seriously say he's the best, most understanding, nicest, and funniest teacher I've ever had
he can be a bit strict at times, but that's only cause he takes his job very seriously, and wants his students to do their best, and those are respectable goals
wow mr. gelfer all u do is notice all the bad things in our orchastra, u never compliment us or anything all u do is say how horrible we are! it hurts my feelin
You are Hilarious!!! When u say a joke i can't help but laugh and then --- I can't stop!!!!! Hehe
i'll admit it sometimes i'll like you somtimes not but you're all right
Mr. Gelfer is a very professional orchestra teacher. He is calm, never yells when we mes up, knows how to communicate ina way our generation understands:comedy!

I'm up at Ward Melville now, but if there's one teacher I miss it's Gelfer. Awesome, awesome teacher and an awesome, awesome person!
