Jonathan Searfoss was the BEST teach I have ever had. Yes, he is difficult to deal with at times however so is everyone else in life. If there was a teacher that prepared me for life it would be him. He accepted nothing less than your absolute best. Not only was he a musical genius but he inspired so many students including myself to excel to be the best. You would be lucky to have a teacher as amazing as him.

As a professional opera singer working in one of the largest opera houses in Europe, I must say that Jonathan was one of the most influential people in my musical maturation. While I worked with him in instrumental music, he kindly offered help with my VOCALS in a school music. That moment reigns most important to me because he gave me solid and sound advice to sing my truly to my own abilities and not to mimic what I could be. Those who complain were simply poor musicians, period.

Searfoss was a terrible teacher. He cursed, screamed at kids and called them names. He is a narcissistic little man who only cares about winning tournaments. He bullied children to try to encourage them to be better. I saw him shove a kid up a field while kicking his hat and belittle a shy girl to the point of uncontrollable tears. He told two tall girls the terrorists should have blown them up instead of the WTC (in 2001). He's one of the worst teachers I ever had.

I had Mr. S over 10 years ago, but I can easily say that he was one of the best teachers I've ever had. And that's saying something, since I've been through grad school. He taught me how to work har

Mr.S is like one of the most knowledgeable men I've met. He helped me so much. You guys who say he's mean, maybe its the student who ticks him off so he sets them straight. Don't be wrong be right.

Mr.S is a bit mean, but only when you act stupid. He pushes your buttons to get something out of you. He strives for the best and thats it. Although it's my senior year and its sucking, he helps us.

Searfoss is good with accordance to Cherokee! In ways he's better than DeVivo (of PV), the only thing is he needs to push everyone not only his favorites.
