Passionate about music but demands 110% dedication, often at the expense of other classes/grades, family commitments, etc. I've known students who've had to miss family weddings & funerals to be in a choir concert or risk an "F" grade, as well as students failing other courses but still being asked to get out of those classes to participate in choir events

Excellent choral music teacher - but feels choir is more important than any other class. A lot his vocal kids barely pass their other courses, because he has them making choir such a high priority. I think a number of his vocal kids are gong to leave high school and find it rough when singing isn't getting them into college or providing them with a paycheck. Choir is a great elective - but should not be the sole focus in a high school education

Honestly, to really succeed in choir, you have to be a good singer and be in EVERYTHING. Rawdon puts his heart into everything, and so do 90% of the choir kids. He isn't the nicest guy, but he's impacted my life in many ways.

There is so much work that goes into this. You don't have time for anything else, once you're in it, you're expected to be 120% in it. Also, if you don't join in every single activity, you can pretty

Rawdon is very clear about his expectations. In his words, his class is the only one he can think of where if you show up and do your best at performances and in class, you'll get an A. He's great.

Excellent choir director, choir is his LIFE.. Unfortunately, he also expects all students in his choir to make it their "life" as well; he has a hard time dealing with his students other extra-curric

Dedicated to the subject he teaches, but often expects all students to make choir their first priority. Music is imperative and important, but so is being a well-rounded teenager and person.
