He has experience, strong musicianship, and is excited if you're also excited about the music. He wants the music department to continue to grow, as he should, and has constantly done his best to make this happen through dedication and always advocating for the greater good of the students. As a conductor of the WE sometimes I didn't quite agree with his musical decisions, but that's subjective. Loves his job. I'll be surprised when the day comes where he says he's sick of what he does.
He wants to become a college band director so he overworks us with too many concerts without asking us. Also he gave us a 92 on the district band concert :(
He (Along with Mr. Kahalahoe) is the conductor for the band program. I have him for symphonic band, the lowest level (There are three bands, organized by skill level). Sometimes he can do annoying stuff, like redoing a small section repeatedly, especially aggravating if, as a percussionist, you're not playing in that section. This is why I prefer Mr. K over Mr. W, but he's still a very competent conductor who helps give our band program a very nice sound.
He is a very talented Music teacher. Also has a bad case of ADHD, but he is really good.
i hear he used to be bad but right now this guy is the bomb. yeah hes kinda weird and sometimes moody, but he can connect with the students and you'll realize it sooner or later, he is an AMAZING music teacher.
ONLY complaints: We were never seated properly. He pushed too much for me to do band again when I knew I needed to figure out what I'm actually going to do with my life. I still don't know what I'm doing.
Needs to chillax sometimes. Pretty cool most of the time
Mr. Warshafsky has done wonders for Montgomery's band program. We are lucky to have him
has too many favorites and yells waay too much and is sometimes unfair but you have to admit, he's a really good teacher and works really hard.
I don't know what these people are talking about (probably just Frosh). He doesn't really seem like he knows what he's doing. Oh well, easy 96!
he's an excellent teacher. we had our doubts in the beginning but he really knows what he's doing and he's improved the program vastly. one of the hardest working teachers in the school (if not district)
Should learn how to seat people by their ability to play music, not by personal favorites and stereotypes.
