Screaming at young people has a name: Abuse. It makes me sad when I think about all the young musicians who's lives have been affected by his behavior.
All I can say is that it is about time he is retiring.
He may get angry a lot but you have to realize what he as to deal with. You have to admit his method does work, he makes us as good as we are. WHen he's not around a ton of people hes a really great
Hoffman is a great band director. Do not get on his nerves or you will be sorry (do what he says).He may not be the nicest person, but really, how much do you think we could get done without Hoffman?
He can get pretty angry, but you have to admit, he makes the band a million times better than we would be otherwise. Plus he's really nice when he's not conducting the WHOLE band.
Mr. H cahnged my life! I love him as if he were a part of my own family! My high school experience wouldn'y have been the same without him! You learn to live with the yelling lol
This guy is disliked by most of his students. I dont know who gave him a good rating, but he needs to retire. Band isnt supposed to be a class students dread.
Makes it almost impossible for someone to be involved in a sport and still do band. Does not TEACH, just yells an awful lot.
Mr. Hoffman is a wonderful teacher. Though he gets a bit upset sometimes, symphonic band would never be as good with out him.
H man, is awesome. Altough he does get aggravated, it's only because he wants us to do well. He takes a lot of time to help. Go H man!
Mr. Hoffman is a great music teacher. He might be a "little" annoying, but still, he makes the band so much better than anyone else could.
Good teacher, knows what hes doing. yells a lot, but still is a pretty nice guy.
Although he does tend to get into the music(yell a lot), when he's not conducting he's very nice.
His overreactions are legendary (I know from personal experience, heh). However, he's actually incredibly nice, especially when not dealing with the entire band
