He is a mixed bag. He is a very good bebop jazz musician which sets him apart from most other band teachers. Great ears. Wish he were better versed in non-jazz music, though. Has a 'sink or swim' mentality. Can be quite rude and arrogant. Sometimes he'll say nice things, though. He has a 'superstar' complex. If you can, study jazz with him at least once. You'll learn a lot for sure. On the other hand, it's simply a fact that a lot of people didn't get a long with him. It is what it is.

He can be very mean and condescending, but he knows his stuff, we are lucky to have such a talented individual as our teacher, even if he hates us all :-P
