Mr. Ecton is an amazing teacher who wants all f his students to be successful. If you are doing dumb stuff then he will embarrass you but that is only because he wants you to be successful. (Plays a mean trumpet)
Strict to kids he doesn't like, light on his favorites. Other than knowing how to play an instrument, he doesn't like to work one-on-one very often and depending the circumstances can be very impatient. He does know his music but can lay off the dancing while the band plays. He has the welcoming presence of sandpaper, and if you cough during a performance while the band is playing, he will react. He should sort out his mood swings before the rehearsals/concerts and at least try to be cheerful.
He's really good at trumpet and is extremely smart but he is very hard and expects a lot from you. he can be rude and cold once in a while. Over all he's cool though.
If you're lead trumpet, he leans on you for a lot. Can play trumpet prette well. At least he conducts in time, not like that other director. Man is a pro and expects that from his students- be a pro!
what an awesome guy. great teacher and really knows what he's talking about. great guy to learn alot from
Wish I had 1/100000000000 of the knowledge of music he has
Knows most about music than anyone I know. Really cares about the students and what he is teaching.
