Mr. Newton is extremely unhelpful and rude. He teaches nothing and does not care about the class. Also, if you join the band program you are forced to pay anymore from 100-400 dollars for "fundraisers". Terrible teacher, terrible class.
He's is really genuine and knows music very well.
Is honest with his students, has high expectations, but if you do well he can be really funny. Without him our band program would be in trouble
Maybe he's grown softer with the years, because he does have a gentle, good-natured side and a sense of humor! He has high expectations, but it made me a more mature and responsible individual.
Kind of scares me. Yells too much. Not too helpful either. Pretty funny though.
As they say, "Insensitivity loses the respect of your loyalists, but even more so the possibility of respect from the world." And just to think I once looked up to him as my favorite teacher... wow.
Great help with music, one of my all time favorite teachers
I consider Mr.Newton to be one of my favorite teachers. All of you posting he is too mean are too oversensitive he always gives good advice on your music regardless of what tone he takes with you. BYA
although i didn't like the class, i still had fun in the class. Mr.newton had his moments of funniness and corny jokes. u didn't have to be on his "good side"
goshdarn i hate him! he made me hate band class and quit it altogether...you hafta be on his "good side", meaning you hafta play perfect and flatter him
not a fair teacher. looses patients really easy. does not teach any thing but music well
CLARINETS WILL RULE THE WIND ENSEMBLE! FOREVER. Aim High.
His voice is getting better. We got straight superiors at pittsburg jazz fest 2004. Folsom is in 3 days.
Can anyone actually understand what he's trying to say?
Easy class. Bad man. I'm still waiting for what he told me he was going to do to me. He made me quit band. Now it's all private lessons, and outside learning :)
not a nice guy. he definitely loaths children, and made me hate playing my instrument, and quit band
newt dawg is hella fun. his classes are fun if ur on his good side. jazz owns.
