After being in concert band for four years, I have some things to say. Mr. Nutting picks favorites ALL THE TIME, his audition process is extremely messed up, chooses who he wants in his upper bands before he even auditions anybody, so don't bother trying out. If you don't get on his "good side" then he'll hate you for the rest of high school. He has created an extremely large program that had its feeling of friendship replaced by cut-throat competition. THS bands are slowly failing bc of him.

Very passionate about music and marching. Completely unbiased testing. Very knowledgable and helpful. Caring; enjoys talking to students. Extremely inspirational. Brings out the very best in every student. The middle school directors may be horrible, but it's worth pushing through to get to Mr. Nutting.

Mr. Nutting is an outstanding role model for students, especially those wanting to go into music. Although it may seem that he is difficult or irritable, it is only because he is looking out for the best interest of the program and his students. Very great person to talk to, and is more than willing to help a student out.

Hes an outstanding teacher and musician. He's patient. He does give a lot of playing tests but gives you enough time to prepare for it.

Mr. Nutting is a very good teacher in general, but he lacks something in the department of the students. He touts his students a lot, but in reality he focuses on a couple for his pet projects. If you are not one of those students, it can be tough getting a break. So either be really talented or get in with him freshman year, or else be prepared to be just another peg in his 185 member student organization.

MR. Nutting in his quest for perfection has lost his humanity. The greater end product does not justify the means. Treating people with human dignity and respect has been lost.

UNFAIRLY PICKS FAVORITES while ignoring others. Depends on who your parents are, or what you look like.
