WIth Mr. Chaffee is leaving next year, I just have to say that the man has lived an incredible life. His love for his students, music, and Stevenson in general really made Stevenson Orchestra what it is today. He doesn't pander to students, yet at the same time he knows how to teach without being too strict or overly-helpful. It will be sad to see him go.

Mr. Chaffee is really the best orchestra teacher anyone could have. He is very helpful with the orchestra work and is lenient on assignments. If you need help its really easy to just ask and get extensions on assignments. He's the nicest fellow out there.

Amazing. He is one of the best teachers I have ever had. He is never strict with rules or deadlines and if you need help he is always willing to have a one on one session with you.

He is kind and helpful. If you ever get lost in what he is teaching, he would gladly help you. He is very knowledgeable, not strict, and understandable.

I think Mr. Chaffee is a great teacher. He really knows his music and theory. He is very nice and makes sure the class stays on task. If you're confused about anything, he is more than willing to help. And for all those who say, "Mr. Chaffee hates me", he doesn't, I know some of you, and he doesn't.

Classical Guitar senior year was the biggest GPA boost ever. I learned more in this class than I did in all my other classes combined. Clark Chaffee is the man.

Orchestra was a great class. Chaffee didn't like me though, and that held me down. The music in Concert Orchestra is too easy; the distance between Concert and Patriot is too great
