I agree with the person below me. Guaranteed a 90 plus if you are quiet/helpful/cooperative. Try not to start beef with him cause he remembers every single bad thing you did in his class.

If you're on his good side, you're like guaranteed a 90. I call out and get out of my seat many times and he doesn't really seem to care. For the first few months, get him to like you. He is also a very nice person if you get to know him better.

Nice teacher but difficult material and tests. I definitely wasn't Appreciating Music when I was in his Music Appreciation class. I could've done better if I had paid attention & studied but he really made the class harder than it should've been. What was with the recorder?!

that guy does NOT know how to teach. he holds grudges and if he doesnt like you then you fail. he went through my bag and my personal things trying to find a recorder. he passed this guy who was absent every day with 75. i tried so hard and participated [not in a bad way] and he failed me with a 55? if you have him.. good luck..

For chorus- never get on his bad side. Never try to contradict him, even if you're right, just basically stay quiet and do what you gotta do to get a good grade
