He is a good teacher, as he actually teaches but is extremely strict. Once, he yelled at me and made me late to my class. He has very bad attitude when he gets annoyed and you can really tell. Overall a pretty good teacher. Personally, I don't like him.

Mr. Fischer is the best!!! If you are reading this and considering whether or not to take band/orchestra, sign up and you will never regret it. Some people don't like Mr. Fischer because they think he is too strict, but as long as you practice a bit each week, he will like you. I'm in chamber orchestra and we have this tradition everyday of greeting him. (tip- practice after school so he can see how hard you are working 😊) Please keep being the greatest teacher ever. 🎢🎻

Mr. Fischer is an a absolutely amazing teacher! Although sometimes he yells (never for no reason) and can be strict, he helped us become great band players! I remember in the years before I had him as a teacher, I was terrible at my instrument. However, now Im in concert band. he has really helped me and is an awesome teacher!

Mr. Fischer is so nice and he's my all time favorite teacher! He's so funny and though he is sometimes strict, he does that because he know that we have to get down to business and try our best when we play. He just motivates me to do more every day and I just want to thank him for being the awesome teacher that he is!
