Mr. Paltrowitz is a great teacher. He's always looking out for you, and really cares about growth and getting you to the next level. Sure he has favorites, and it can be annoying, but he just wants you to care about choir and your individual growth- or atleast act like you care. You have to go into his class eager to learn something new, and willing to try your hardest.

I love Pal! He's kind but he will call you out if you're not doing what you're supposed to. He has a really great knowledge of music and applies it to life. He does play favorites, but a lot of people do.

A man who never moved on from the petty high school nonsense; he likes to hear student gossip. He plays favorites, outwardly compares "dynasties," and singles out students... aside frm other "issues".

Pal is a very good teacher. Although he picks some favorites, it isn't uncommon with teachers. If you just do what you're supposed to, you'll be favored.
