He does his best to stay out of band drama, which I appreciate... but when one or two people get out of hand and start making other band students want to quit because of how rude and mean they are, I wish he would discipline a bit more. Other than that, Mr. Varn has been an amazing band director and respects you if you respect him.

I honestly don't even care how many people hate Mr. Varn... hes just here to help, if you don't respect him , he still respects you but will still be respectful in return. no matter what bad things people say, he will always be my favorite teacher.

Alright, so Mr. Varn isn't easy. WHO CARES? Like he always says "if it was easy anyone could do it!" Yes, he picks favorites, and his favorites are the people who don't disrespect him and who don't act like he's some dictator reincarnate. So he tells you that you play a wrong note. OH WELL! FIX THE NOTE! So he's tough, SO'S SYMPHONIC BAND! He knows what he's talking about and he has the best interest of the kids at heart. I love band and I love the fact that Mr. Varn teaches us. GO TUBA'S!

Varn has and will only care about his brass section. He is incapable of communicating to the whole and singles out select persons as favorites or scapegoats.
