Inspiring director - would settle for nothing but the best. He will be missed..
Very strict. Veryyy good conductor though and classes produce amazing music. Sad he retired. We need you back Mr. Torns
WONDERFUL band director. Best ever. Too bad he retired!!!
He is one of the best teachers I ever had. More students should see things from the teachers point of view and then they would understand why he is strict. He really cares about his students.
Best Band Director. He is so helpful, and knows what he is talking about. I am happy i was here before he retires. =( I will miss him.
legendary hes is SUPER strict but he knows what he is talking about and he dose know how to have fun its too bad that hes gonna retire after this marching season
Great teacher, a little scary at first, but a good person. He yells sometimes, but he gets the job done, and that is to make amazing musicians.
one of the highest ranking music directors in the nation. won i think 2 grammys. very nice. glad to have him
TORNS IS THE BEST. He judges students by their personality and skill. He doesnt want a loudmouth in his Wind Ensemble. Best teacher I have ever had. He has perfect pitch and loves his music and students. Lucky to have him!!!!
Plays favorites....should start teacher more and playing hearts less on the comp.
Will always love Mr. Torns. He is an amazing teacher, mentor, and muscician. When he finally fully retires the Musical Sundevils will all suffer for it.
amazing conductor...he really helped me to grow as a musician!
A fantabulous teacher.....YOu just have to see past the occasional outburst of loud noise... besides band rocks!!!!!!!!!!!!!
As a freshman he scared the bejesus out of me; as a senior, I knew I could go to him for anything. He's only hard if you don't pay attention or dont work. My favorite teacher @ MC.
plays favorites. .but lifes not bad when youre one of them. .amazing orchestra director
hes good teacher. He does yell irrationally sometimes and that is well known. If we can get passed the yelling at students, he is one of the best directors in t
Mr. Torns Has got to be one of the most influential teachers I've ever had. Yes, he's yelled at me, but hey! It's only to make me better. Yay Mr. Torns!
very bad person.
very good band director.
that's all there is to it.
He is the best conductor. he may still scare me to death but he makes the band something to be proud of. You better practice though!!
What a tyrant! Plays favorites. Yells a lot. No excuse for this kind of treatment.
He's strict because he needs to be. If he yells at you it's for a good reason and you obviously screwed up. Mr. Torns rocks.
sure he yells at you/the band, but he has high expectations -- and should.
very strict, needs to give students more credit, without your students you have no teachers....lighten up, have fun, it makes band alot more enjoyable.
