i love gorringe :) he's really funny and he's a great teacher and person. the thing i admire most about him is his ability to be straightforward and to confidently express his opinions on things.sometimes in the middle of class he'll go into a completely unrelated discussion with the class, but it's okay because he makes up for it by working us for the rest of the period. 100/10!

Gorringe is one of the best teachers I've ever had. He is fairly relaxed and likes to joke around and have a good time but he expects your respect in return. He knows so much about music and about life in general. Absolutely recommend him

It's incredible that after having Gorringe as a teacher at 2 schools for a total of 6 yrs countless awards life and music lessons and 12 yrs after I've graduated this man is still changing lives! He has a temper like fire but a passion and dedication that burns even hotter. Sing like salad he once said in reference to a fruit salad he had that overpowered his senses... and we were almost humble. I'll never forget all he taught me. - Chantee Carter class of 2002

His class was definitely a breath of fresh air compared to my highly stressful AP classes. He was laid back and entertaining to work with and does his best to bring out our best in us as musicians. It was really fun to obnoxiously yell HI GORRINGE!

I wish Master Barrows hadn't left. Didn't care as much about his students, prompted me to drop out of school after he kicked me out of his class for poor attendance due to severe illness.
