Mr. Bell has really helped me become a better musician over the four years that I've had him. I used to not know how to use my voice at all, but after learning so much from him during Mixed Chorus my Freshman year, I was able to continually grow as a musician during Madrigals for the next three years. Having been in a couple of honors choirs outside of the high school, I know from first-hand experience that Mr. Bell will go to great lengths to ensure that you are able to particiiipate in them. He prepared us very well for each audition. While he can be very strict at times, it's for the best; it's to help everyone grow to their fullest potential both as musicians and as maturing young adults entering society. I'd take him again and again if I could, and I regret not having taken AP Music Theory with him, but all I can do is keep visiting the high school during Caroling season! :-)
there will never be a music teacher like Mr.Bell .. this is a fact ! .. he is a real talented, helpful, enthusiastic.
Overall a great teacher and I love being a part of Madrigals. :)
He has his moments, but he only flipps if you aren't doing something he knows you can do
I worked with Mr. Bell outside of Teaneck High School and he's one of the best musical directors I have EVER worked with. Great teacher and a wonderful person.
he's an effective teacher, but he REALLY favors the older kids - and he gives you a random grade on the midterm
He knows everything! he cares about the class but can be hard at times.
