Vinnie Monaco is hilarious, and I genuinely enjoyed his class. He got off topic a lot, but overall, music was interesting. He 's a nice guy and wants everyone to succeed and appreciate music. Just don't be annoying and recite his prayer incorrectly.

Monaco is a character. While is class is entertaining, he makes it as such by making fun of the other students. No one is really 100% on his good side. Most of his grades are arbitrary, and can be understood only as a representation which students he favors. If you have prior exposure to music, his class is overwhelmingly easy, but if not, it can be difficult, and he isn't very good at helping the students who are struggling.

What a whirlwind of confusion. You know he has a good side, and you'll never know if you're on it, but god are his classes fun. If you pay attention to what he's saying and do any of the work, its like having a free period in the middle of the day where you go talk to your crazy old uncle.

He' kinda rants a lot, but he's pretty entertaining and you can get a good grade in his class. He's helpful, too, and actually explains everything. DON'T get on his bad side, though- you'll regret it.

very funny and interesting in class, once you get to know what he expects his class is definitely manageable, he works very hard to explain everything to you, doesn't get enough respect for being the great teacher he is

Decent teacher, but humiliates his students in class. Often goes on for hours about the low mental capacity of individual students. He's great, as long as you never mess up.

As band conductor, he's really funny and random. People don't take him seriously enough. He does seem like he'd be a scary teacher.
