I absolutely love Mr. Boates. Sophomore year of symphony I was totally scared to him, but when he and his wife got divorced he became a lot happier. Now I'm a senior and have him for symphony and AP Music Theory and although he has high expectations, he's really not a bad teacher and knows a lot. Everyone should take symphony instead of rep.

He is overly sarcastic and rude. He expects respect from his students, however, he does not give his students any respect. His "constructive criticism is demeaning." He is a great musician, but teaching high school students is not the right job for him.

Mr. Boates is great. He's efficient and effective. He knows SO much about music in general, and though not always the most friendly, he's overall a nice guy.

Mr. Boates hates all the strings and freshman!! He favors all the other instruments though... A trombone player should not teach orchestra! He doesn't know what he's talking about.
