I don't get why most people think he's mean. He's a great teacher who's honest enough to point out something we did wrong. He probably knows more than most of the teachers in the school.

I was in his class for 2 years now and I saw him talking about politics and morals in band class more than actually practicing the instruments. He is really easy teacher, he just gives everybody As.

Mr. Farmer is pretty intimidating to most people. But, he is incredibly funny and although he gets incredibly mad sometimes for no clear reason, i still enjoy his class.

i dont think anyone really likes him. he is always moody. people drop out b/c of him. plus he doesnt do anything! he just sits in his office and comes out after 1/2 an hour. and he never stops talking

been in his class for 4 years. he is totally fine once you get used to him. he has certain pet peeves (tardiness, forgetting music/instruments, "soloing"). repeats himself sometimes... er, often.

He's not that bad. He's actually pretty cool. All you need to do is shut up and pay attention. But people have a hard time doing that so that's why he gets mad and scary. He's funny and it's fun listening to him tell stories of what happened in his youth. Easy to get an A as long as you practice and bring your instrument and music.

Very boring. Loves to waste your time by going into nutrition, or lunch, or after school. Says the same stories over and over again. He doesn't pick favorites, but kids he hates. Dont waste your time

AHHHHHH!!!!! OMG! He is like a dinosaur. He will EAT you if you forget your instrument and he's always yelling and kicking kids out of class. But other than that, he's ok.

easy A but he talks and talks and talks and talks and talks and talks, wait, I'm not done, and talks and talks and talks.... for entire block periods on end. and often times you'll ask him about something, and he'll be like "remind me during class" and even if you do he'll be like "oh I don't have time for that now, remind me tomorrow..." and he tells some pretty bad jokes.
