Pretty good teacher because I love band, but he can be a little mean when it comes to yelling at kids who don't play well, because once he insulted our previous teacher for not teaching us anything, but overall, he's great!

Mr. Gershenson is currently my music teacher. Although we talk a lot, he's still pretty patient and understanding for a teacher.

mr. gershenson is really nice if you don't start talking in the middle of class or read when you're not playing. however, he makes sure you articulate properly and play on the right beats. he sometimes plays out a piece so you can have something to go on when you play, giving you less chances for mistakes

MR G. YOU ARE THE BEST TEACHER I HAVE EVER HAD(i mean have as in i am currently in his class) He is knowledgeable in music, is funny, teaches well, and plays well. Like crazy well. The songs we play and the arrangements we play in the book are just incredible and sound so well put together. When we are playing a piece very weakly, he eliminates the problem as if it was never there in the first place. Just practice and don't get him mad ......

Mr.G is awesome. All you have to do is be dedicated to your music and practice your instrument a lot. But don't take his class if your not dedicated and don't have time to practice, because then it drags the rest of us down. But Mr. G is awesome!
