HE'S GONE!!!! (somewhere the hallelujah chorus is playing as an angel gets its wings) The worst teacher ever! Even if you weren't his student he managed to bring you down. He's the most demeaning teacher i've ever met.
I love Mr. Butka! I used to visit him everyday last year! I miss him so much!
Overall...um, he knows his stuff. Just help out as much as possible, and get on his "good side" as others have said, and you'll be fine.
Mr. Butka's the man! You just need to get to know him and give him a chance, thats all. Once you're on his good side he really isn't a bad guy.
If we had some students who were serious about band then Mr. Butka wouldn't have such a hard time with the class. I like him and I think everyone just tries to antagonize him.
Yes Mr. Butka gets angry but you can thank most of the band for this. They do not pay attention to him. The band members that take music seriously know exactly what I mean.
Genuinely cares about students. Historically pegged as being mean therefore reputation carries on. Great with small groups. Extremely generous with his time.
His expectations are too high. Most of the younger students are too immature to listen to him. He's a good teacher though.
butka is a great teacher if you understand and are serious about music and he very talented, and he never goes through with his punisments!
He definitly is talented. he tends to be humorous with small groups, but has a hard time controlling the entire band. i feel sorry for him.
hard to describe...but the fact that HE IS THE WORST TEACHER EVER, should just about do it. Insulted me and embaressed me every, and gave me 5 dets and 1 Indet.
Butka tries and i feel sorry for him sometimes.. he is nice when he is with a small group, it is just that the band antagonizes him..
Awesome teacher...if you are serious about music...he's an incredible musician.
He might be good at what he does you would never know becuase he has such an awful approach at teaching. He is rude, mean, and only likes you if you are perfect
Butka is an island in himself. Watch him play the bass drum. You'll never be the same. Very talented, and a nice guy. He tries, he really does.
