He's definitly one of the best people that has come to my life. I'm not a devout Christian, and he knows that very well. He's helped me with my life, and to turn it around. Love him!

Mr. Elgin has inspired me to become a better person and musician. He has taught me dedication, motivation, perserverance, and most importantly, to reach my potential . He has opened my eyes and heart. Sometimes he chooses favorites and isn't alway fair, but he never leaves anyone behind. He's dedicated his life to our band program. We're the best thing our school has, thanks to him. He's great, inside and out. Although we lost our connection, I know he'll always be there... for all of us. He's the greatest!

he does favor the christians but he seems to like me pretty well and im atheist. i think he also goes really easy on girly girls who act kind of stupid. WAY too dramatic and passionate about marching band sometimes. i guess its somewhat a good thing. hes a very friendly guy and is awesome to joke around with. just way too dramatic.

I've never had him as a teacher per-se, but simply as a person who teachers at AHS, Mr. Elgin is extremely dedicated to the students who befriend him (his students and not). He's the most friendly and helpful teacher I've come across in a long time.

I could have done so well in music but I lost my passion for it when I got in to band at ahs. He didn't like me too much anyways. Oh well, too bad. I ended up quitting and have never looked back.

Well, it seems pretty evident that the people that like Mr. Elgin tend to be less intelligent than those who don't. He does a lot for the program, but I have perceived it more as an effort to boost his own personal image in the local "band" comm
