He was my teacher in 1982, but I didn't stay with it. I know I frustrated him by cussing & threatening my classmates who irritated me, but he did his best. I'm glad now, I took up the cello again a few yrs ago and love it now
So what, He never cared about anything but his top group. Now we are all learning and all the orchestra sound good. we finally have directors that know how to teach.
Mr. Kidwell has retired. Because he was such a great teacher and accomplished so much, Robin Riley, the Mayor of Seabrook, TX has designated a special day as James Kidwell Day.
Mr. Kidwell was an amazing teacher. I owe so much to him. He taught me to play the string bass every morning before school in 7th Grade.
he was a pretty awful teacher and the only thing that had us winning contests was the students who could play stuff w/o practicing.. who practiced anyways lol
Mr. K is an excellent director. To win consecutive sweepstakes is quite an accomplishment
[cringe]. He's not even that good of a conducter...don't know why he's still a teacher.
i really like music thats why i'm in the class. Lots of students say they dont like him like hes mean or somthing but hes kinda cool. he always rephrases somthing so that someone cant use it against him not that i would not a bad teacher
I think he's a nice guy who just doesn't know how to express himself all too well. He'd probably be in nicer guy if people would actually listen to him. Hm..
