He's tough, yeah, but he made the music department basically. HE is an AMAZING conductor. Such a great teacher. Music will be less without him..
Very nice and very funny. Made concert band entertaining in the morning even though our band wasnt all that good
mr. allen is an amazing conductor and person. he is incredibly nice, and really smart (music wise). its really hard 2 make him angry, and when u do make him angry, it gets 2 u, and hits u hard
Excellent conductor and great guy. He knows what he's doing and has helped the bands succeed year after year. Although, he sometimes sets high standards because of Whitman's excellent reputation.
he tells boring stories that i don't understand but at least it takes up class time
Awesome teacher, brings out the best in the people he teaches. Always is positive and never loses his cool. He really knows music too. Yay Mr allen!!!
I honestly don't think that he's any better than any other conductor I've had. He knows what he's doing, but he does leaves much to be desired.
Mr. Allen is the greatest teacher EVER! Why do you think i drew that stick figure with muscles on the board. He is so cool! Don't Mess with this Australian. Also Very Funny.
if you plan on any sort of career in music, or a more realistic musical environment.. dont spend to much time in whitmans music program
MCA is one of the best teachers I've ever had. He demands a lot of you, but helps you reach your goals. He also treats you like an adult.
this tiny kangaroo of a man is great!! Very enthusiastic, good techinical knowledge of music but not a great depth to his artistic understanding of classical.
so cool... very funny, but kind of annoying when he starts to lecture on and on. great class to have first period so u can space out first thing in the morning
what a phat cat- play trombone they always need trombones
He isn't funny at all even though he tries to be, but he knows what he's doing.
When he pulls out the trumpets for a short instructive seminar, no one gets to play. He just shows off the whole time.
decent guy, just totally obsesed with getting the best ratings, doesn't care so much for lower bands( ie frosh and concert)
I don't like him much, he seams to be cocky and a know it all.
He flipped out on Orchestra, Middle school bands will outplay you at festival during their 2 HOUR night rehursal. Very bullying and agressive, but overall he's a cool guy who just wants to be the best.
good musician, great powerlifter he can do over 30 pull-ups, what a beast
Mr. Allen was great. I didn't find him hard to talk to. Funny, motivational.
MCA is one of the nicest ppl out there and a fabulous teacher
Good teacher, director, etc. Not really that nice out of class.
hes the only person thats shorter than me that im afraid of! but hes still cool
Teaches you stuff,not enough playing time though.Hes nice,but pretty manipulativ
Very cool guy, great musician, way too serious about behavior and grades hard
always keeps his cool even when we are playing awful
wonderful person, dosen't lose his temper, execelent conductor and musician,
Mr. Allen is the coolest teacher ever. Short Tasmanian music teachers rule!
i love mr. allen!!! he is the nicest most awesome person ever! (go flutes)
he's a short aussie, and never looses his temper, what more is there?
Mr. Allen was awsome. He knew I was awful in band but was cool anyway.
cool guy, sorry about doing that thing with that stuff that time
Mr.Allen is one of the best teachers that I have had.
One of my most favorite people in the world. Dedicated and wonderful.
I used to get frosh to skip his class and come out to lunch with me
A great musical mind and a fun teacher who looks out for his students' interests
Excellent teacher. Kind, approachable, knowledgeable, experienced.
