Despite how strict people thought he was, he really showed his appreciation for music and his students. If you got to experience being in his shows like i did, you could see the quality difference. Our shows were made to perfection and nothing less. Sad to also experience him leaving. but i truly appreciate all he did for the MS51 chorus.

I only had a glimpse of himin 6th grade because I was in show choir. But the show with Mr.Zwirn was to say the least, magical. It had this aura and feel that just isn't the same without him.

Alan Zwirn was good if you were in his chorus. Otherwise he could care less about you. He was a lousy teacher and stiff as a board

Mr. Zwirn was one of the best teachers i had. No matter how much we complained he never gave in which made us stronger and prepared for what came ahead. I miss it so much.
