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.

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.

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.
