Mr. Yassky is a very fun teacher to have if you work hard and don't get off task in his class. If you do get off task, however, his class so much. You get to create mixtapes on Garage Band and get to create a short film about Neil Armstrong on the moon using iMovie. I loved his class in seventh grade so much and miss it a lot. I wish I could have it again now in eight grade, but in eight grade you have Study Hall all year long.
Our child wanted to be involved in the music dept. We asked Mr. Yassky about how we could prepare him ahead of the school year and he suggested he learn the bells. We didnt realize that he said that to discourage our child. We purchased bells and our child spent the Summer learning them. We are a musical family with numerous musical awards btw, so our child was well-prepared.
When the autumn came, Mr. Yassky refused to even meet with our child, saying he would fit in. No autistic kids..
he's a good guy, band rocks........music could be better band's better than gym
Hes pretty cool..... he can be mean sometimes though
He has high expectations of the orchestra which can be good sometimes. At least he thinks we're mature! I think the zipper is getting a bit over done!
