FUNNY occasionally. HORRIBLE TEACHER all the time. Sight Singing consisted of clapping quarter notes for a few weeks. I learning nothing new in his class and HE is the reason I most likely wont get into Senior Chorus.

he is extremely boring. i don't understand anything he teaches. if i ask him to explain it, he makes it more complicated and tells me to study. if i had to say one positive thing about him, it would be that he's nice. but that's it.
