picks favorites big time, and is getting grouchy with age. as long as you stay on his good side (meaning don't give him any reason to dislike you, which includes going to ALL practices), you'll be fine. don't offend him, either. he doesn't take it well
Thompson and Chaffin were and are great band directors. It is a shame that people finger point at each other. That was the problem with year one at SVHS which I was a part of, too many people not willing to commit to being a team. A shame...
Well, For the person who says Spring Valley Marching Band is never in step; Mr. Chaffin is an exellent teacher and Spring Valley is in step most of the time.
Mr. Chaffin is a great music teacher. He's been teaching for a long time, and I really think he knows what he's doing. He's made the SV band the way it is today
