Mr Harvey is and always has been the baddest man alive. He is a phenomenal inspirational teacher and mentor. Anyone who is fortunate enough to spend even an hour with him as a student should know their fate has been forever changed.
I took Music Theory with Mr. Harvey back in the 09-10 school year, my senior year. I went into the class thinking I had a pretty solid chance of knowing anything he had to teach me, but I was extremely wrong. He is so knowledgeable, passionate, clear and precise in his teaching, and I learned more than I had ever hoped to from him. A friend and I approached him to take the AP Music Theory test that is offered through the state. Thanks to him, I received a 5 in oral and a 3 in the written.Amazing
Mr. Harvey is truly an inspired teacher. If you've been in any of his serious courses (not including Piano) you know that he loves what he does and he loves the students that he teaches, granted they aren't complete buffoons.
"Mr. Harvey" taught me 18 - 20 years ago. He is someone who I looked up to and respected for his ability to teach and the way he conducted himself and us. I was in his Music appreciation class, concert band and Jazz band, and consider myself lucky to have had him as a teacher. I have extremely fond memories playing, performing and having a good time with him day to day. He taught me well and I play several instruments, often to this day because of him. Show him you care and he'll teach you
He has his favorites and he makes it well known if you are not his favorite. I had a really terrible time for the short time I was in his class. He doesn't care about his students or his job anymore.
Taking music theory with Mr. Harvey was a very good decision. He is always willing to help you understand the concept. Also it prepares anyone who wants to do music in high school very good teacher.
literally the best band director i've had, and i've had four in school, and two at all county. focused, hardworking, and loves music. go harvey!
he is amazing. there are no other words for it. amazing. he is the best drummer i have ever heard, and tells THE BEST stories! only teacher i could have for 4 consecutive years

Great man once you get to know him. He definitely is a perfectionist- so don't goof off. He's the greatest band director I've had.
Awesome teacher. The Marching Band was great. An experience I'll never forget.
