He's the best band teacher (besides mr gazer) he will only get mad at you if you aren't doing or did what you are supposed to be doing or if you forget your tuner. The best decision I had in middle school was to join the Jazz band.

Mr.Zimny is the best! He sacrifices so much time, energy, and money to get band equipment and to bring the jazz band on trips. He always tries to make us improve, even if it means yelling. Some teachers at FMS are lazy, they sit at their desks on their computer the entire period. Zimny is the opposite; he works hard and challenges us with new music that he buys. He also knows a ton of stuff about music, hes in the drum corps hall of fame. And, an awesome homeroom teacher

Mr. Zimny has instilled an amazing work ethic in my child! His playing has improved significantly and he can't wait to get to school at 7:15 for Jazz Band practice. Some kids may not like him because he is tough, but he is one of those teachers who will prepare our kids for the real world! My son looks up to him and if he has cried it is because he didn't do something expected of him and knows the teacher is disappointed in him. Not every kid gets a trophy in life!

My kid had Mr. Zimney for the 2015-2016 school year. I myself ask my kid to develop a passion for music. However Mr. Zimney has gone to far, and 4 months ago she came crying because he yelled at her for practicing a different piece while the other students where reciting a newer piece. This is not OK and as a parent, he should go smack some sense into him

Mr. Zimny was a great teacher. Honestly you can't get mad at him for yelling at you because it's your fault for doing something wrong in the first place. He's probably the best teacher, teaching wise too. He is very informative with music and can teach you a lot about it and has had experience. He's in the Hall of Fame too! Jazz band was great. Great experience and really fun. All you need to do is practice and you're good- 2nd chair trombone 2015-2016 Best In The West :)

A very good 6th, 7th, 8th, grade and Jazz Band teacher. Many people did not like him because they did not want to be yelled at or that they had to recite their scales in front of the class. He doesn't get mad at you because he thinks you're bad. He gets mad at you because he knows you just didn't do what you were told to do, such as practicing. If you can't play the best you can the first time every time, you're just neglecting things. Also, learn your scales. It helps. Jazz Band 2nd Alto 2015-6
