His fierce passion and his careful hands really guided me towards success. I wish I could find a mentor with as strong a passions as him. His actions and movements really brought me to where I am today. He was the only teacher that made me so excited and made the class soooo pleasurable. May Shrek be with you Dubo.

Very nice teacher! He knows a lot about music and is willing to help you if you approach him. He is also a lot of fun while being informative. His character brings a friendly atmosphere in which we can learn. While being less strict than Dr. McDaniel (the middle school music instructor), this proves to be good as we can practice before and after rehearsal.

he knows his stuff, but you have to make the first move. if you are one of those who hates playing and will not take the first step in working hard, he will come across as unhelpful and lazy. He is old and forgetful sometimes, but those who want help have take the initiative.

He knows a lot about music and if you go up and have a conversation with him, then he will really motivate and help you. However, if you just sit in the back and fool around, then he will seem "lazy."

not very good at balancing his work as a teacher...seems like he is still living like a high school student, making ends meet with impromptu decisions...needs to PLAN and CONSIDER

he knows his music & cares enough to put up with the stupid high school kids we are. He's also very biased and stubborn. He makes very questionable decisions. He acts without regarding the student POV.

Mr. U's teaching style isn't that great, but he is a lot better than Dr. Mcdaniel. Like he doesn't yell at you or try to make you cry. well what I am trying to say is that He is a great teacher.
