Mr. Morgan also hit me. I was about 15-years old and unable to decipher his sloppy field chart hand writing. Instead of taking the time to explain it - he hit me on the hit in anger with his clipboard. My friend's eyes popped out of her head as she witnessed him. Just one of 100 disgraceful acts hidden from band parents and the administration. You are not alone.
It is a disgrace that the political hacks like tiedjjen and tardalo and the boe would not listen to mr. Morgan and pick his choice for his replacement.They are jealous of him and know little about what is good for the program and are very selfish
Mr.Morgan is a wonderful teacher and band instructor. I didn't prefer his band class as an elective. I thought the scale tests were challenging and unnecessary. In music, you should be assessed on work ethic, and passion to learn, not playing perfect pitches, and having clear tone quality. These concepts are important, but you should not be tested on them, you should be given an A for progress, and dedication. Mr.Morgan is a great band director.
Lucky for the band "Uncle Bob", after destroying its reputation for so many years...the man will be retiring soon. His ego, and the need to control everyone and everything around him, ruined many a high school band member. If you were not part of his klick..you were nothing. If you wanted better than what he wanted..you were demeaned by him, and he made sure the rest of the band knew how he felt..and influenced them to treat you accordingly. He ruined many a senior year for those unlucky ones..
he is a very Very close and narrow minded individual. he is constantly degrading and mean to other students always looking for someone to laugh at. I have NEVER felt worse about myself than after bein
sometimes he's a tough guy when it comes to music and all. but he loves what he does and all of his complaints are only there to make you better. great teacher!
WOW! a student even urinated on your car! A CHS FIRST! so "Sorry" to see it happen-hope U can makeit to the Band car wash!
not a nice person, over inflated ego. Time to pack it up, spends too much time in his office
does a good job, has his favorites, not always nice, changes his mind to suit the situation
yes, a hard worker & does do a lot!It is deeply appreciated!there's no denying that!- but hehas his faults& is not perfect!
A great teacher ans mentor. One of my few good memories of CHS.
hear he called a band session during Midterm exam week!-wouldnt it have made more sense to have it on a Fri. when exams were over, so kids could study? Poor timing! -typical CHS teacher!
anyone who takes the time to sit here and bash morgan is the fool. he teaches you not just about music but about life. the best teacher in clifton high. your loss if you dont like him. hes great
band members were mocked by football players as they exited the field at night pep rally at stadium. The rally was a waste-parents of band were there-few others. A disgraceful event.,but band is good.
dont overemphasize "class rank" at dinners,etc.too much- kids have feelings& may be embarrassed-U become the joke,not them.
Mr. Morgan is one of the greatest teachers in the school!
it would be nice if all of you would refrain from talking about something you dont know anything about =)
practice a lot you hardly play in class, no lessons in school, get yourself a private teacher.
He called be a bad name in front of the whole class and I don't think I'll forget that experience
everyone who puts morgan down is wrong!!!!! shure he can be a bit mean , but if your in trouble he will do anything he can to help you. Dont talk back & youll be fine.
Mention the words Saul Kaye, and watch him cringe. Unlike Kaye, Uncle Bob never was good enough, nor personable enough, to put together a top flight WORLD CLASS band, too bad..
be careful ! If you chop alot off! there wont be aband left for yout to teach! OR IS that the game plan?
Mr. Morgan, you are amazing! You have taught me what the 4Ds really mean! Thanks!
You show what kind of class act you are, by the unprofessional way you put down other teachers.
If you want to know why the band is so small take a good look in the mirror, stop putting the blame on others
are you so selfcentered you want to destroy the band, so there is nothing left when you retire in a few years, if so your doing a great job
If you are one of his "click" you will do fine. If you are strong willed, or think that he should push for better things, expect for him to try and alienate you among your peers...
Mr Morgan has been the best teacher I have EVER had. He's taught me so many life lessons (as he always says "music is the last thing you'll learn in band" and he's so right!) and has just been an awesome person. Don't be stupid and you wont have a problem with him. He's an amazing guy and makes for an awesome experience at clifton high pde DM'05
You need to practice a lot, but Mr. Morgan will be the best teacher you've ever had. I don't think I'd be the person I am without him pushing me to be my best.
hes mean he talked about me to other students behind my back all he cares about is him and band he doesnt care about the students feelings
As long as your on his good side you're all right, but other than that hes great
Mr. Morgan has A LOT to offer anyone who would like to listen. If you get a bad grade that's because you don't practice-it's like not doing your homework-duh
a great director, very demanding from his musicians don't get on his bad side, you can still be accepted if you don't join marching band-just practice
Mr. Morgan has a method to his madness. It is because of that, that I have become the person I am today. Work hard and don't cop an attitude.
This is a Pro-Band testimonial page. Why does a battered person go back for more punishment from an abuser? Morgan does not physically hurt people though.
Overall a good teacher- a little nutty sometimes though
Mr. Morgan is the best teacher ever..you get on his bad side and there might be trouble
Mr. Morgan is the best teacher anyone could ask for at Clifton High. He is easy to talk to, and he loves his work, which makes him friendly.
Mr. Morgan was a very hard teacher. But being in band was fun and it all paid off in the end.
The best teacher at CHS.That's why the band is known worldwide.If you're not serious about music,stay away.He isn't there to waste time on kids who don't care.
If you are hardworking and do your best, you can't go wrong with Mr. Morgan. He can be your biggest ally; he won't tolerate bad attitudes and I applaud that.
Mr. Morgan is the best band director CHS has had or will ever have...He may be tough sometimes, but that's only because he wants us to be the best :)
He plays the biggest mind tricks on the band. Has them all hipnotized, so that they will do his bidding. Until your chip runs out when you graduate.
