-Maxx Solomonian Mr. Jamora is nothing like I expected. He's such great sax player and he connects with his students unlike any other teacher at this school. Even though half the students in my B. instruments class are on their phones or talking to their friends, he still helps them and turned them all into proficient players who can play their instruments fairly well. Like I said, he's nothing like I expected. He's a lot more than just a teacher, he's my good friend and helpful instructor!

Where do I begin? First off, Mr.Jamora is a great sax player, no doubt.However, here's everything wrong with him : He DEFINITELY has his favorites, and makes it fairly obvious.This is the reason I'm actually leaving band after 3 years...yeah, its gotten that bad.He gets VERY distracted, if I had a dime for each minute he wasted valuable time, I'd be a billionaire.If you aren't talented, your existence to him is irrelevant.Not even joking. And he grades last minute...not cool.

Mr. Jamora is a great teacher if you really want to learn music. He is interactive and really wants to help you. He also connects extremely well with his students. I not only think of Mr. Jamora as a teacher, but as a friend.

Not a student. a parent. so I rated everything middle....
We went to jazz cafe last friday (feb 27, 2015) and it was a great show. I think there should be many more of those opportunities for kids to show what they love to do. Let's do more than i per year.

Mr. J is amazing! I have him for 5th period orchestra and he is really nice, funny, helpful, and he picks really good music for us like Game of Thrones and Kasmir from Led Zeppelin! 5th period is like a family, and most of my classmates are really fun and nice! If you play an instrument, I highly recommend taking a class with Mr. Jamora!
