James Martini is one of the greatest music teachers I have ever worked with. Musically, he pushes the CYHS band to be our very best. Not only is he a fabulous teacher, he gives of his time to listen and truly care about his students. He helped me grow as a musician and a person. Central is very fortunate to have him as part of their staff.
He cares a lot about the music but is hard to talk to.
Mr. Martini is very easy to get along with. He try's his best to make Central have one of the best bands! ALways have fun in band. Marching band is even better.
Martini's very passionate about music; however, he doesn't understand that not all of his students share the same passion. This frustration frequently comes out, especially at less-advanced students.
He is extremely dedicated to the music and a little less dedicated to the students themselves. Even so, he is a respectable guy and I had a lot of fun playing for him.
I think Mr. Martini provides an appropriate response to the students he is given. I think he attempts to make the band the most excellent organization it can be.
Better than most. However, he needs to get organized.
I had him back at East Stroudsburg :) He worked at the jewlry counter at Wal-Mart
makes my day everyday! a really nice guy even though he enjoys laughing at me. You should get to know him as a person not just a teacher, and you will do well
He doesn't expect a single thing from newbies or pretty much anyone else! Perfect!
