Stro!!!!! He certainly is different from Mrs. Rusnak but let me tell you, he's wonderful. In the past year I have learned more than I've ever learned on my instument in the past three years.
I LUV BAND N' MR O N' EVERYTHIN 'BOUT HIM. WE'LL BE BACK NEXT YEAR BETTER THAN EVAAAA, MR O. BE PREPARED TO GET YO SOX BLOWN OFF! -LUV AM and DC
Humor him by talking to him about his latest achievements in karate, his son, or his newest bizarre instrument. I could get a better grade in any other elective, but I can't escape.
best band teacher ever he's helped me improve..lots.. but i think he should consider our other activites and let us leave to go to in school meetings. and get our PSAT scores.
Mr. O is simply amazing he's a little tough sometimes but he needs to be in order to make a great band!
He challenges us. He's an unbelieveable and respectable musician, and even though he bores us with "gig" tales, and brags about his sight-reading ability, he's great.
The best teachers stretch students beyond what they believe is possible. That's what makes Mr. O great!
he's not the easiest teacher, but thats what makes us good
You're GREAT! You really made the 7th grade+8th grade band concery AWESOME! It was so great my parents were asking how we pulled it off.
