he is ok but when it comes to auditions i don't think that those that take private lessons should be valued more and he does this when he chooses which ensemble you should be in.
Mark Hourigan deserves so much respect for his efforts. He is probably one of the most over-qualified high school band directors in the state. He has high expectations but also encourages students. Novi is spoiled to have him.
One of my favorite teachers in high school. He so sweet and loves all of his students so much. He's basically like another dad.
If you don't have your Hourigan poster hung up in your room beware. He hates those who don't think he's the greatest person ever born. Also don't do anything besides band if you want him to like you. But he is a good music director who has clear expectations-no matter how they clash with anything else in your life.
Ahh I love this man, he expects a lot out of you but rightfully so.
mr. hourigan is a fantastic musician/director. he recently went on sabbatical to recieve his Doctorate in music and has come back to teaching! He expects alot of you,
Best band teacher and conductor I've ever had. The band program at NHS owes endless thanks to Mark Hourigan whose professionalism and talent brought us to the top.
MPH is basically awesome and is one of the best things to happen to the already-awesome Novi band program. Plus, he marched at Phantom Regiment.
Mr. Hourigan is the coolest band director. He always is willing to help and he's soooo funny. He gets along with students and is SUCH a good musician! Both Marching Band and Concert season are a blast! MR. HOURIGAN ROCKS!
Great conductor and musician. extremely professional about his work. He will like you if you try. If you can put band as 1/4 of your schedule, you should at least take pride in it
An awesome guy, people just need to be mature and stop complaining because he wants us to be GOOD!
Forced many of the most talented out of wind ensemble because we wanted to focus on music instead of marching
Great teacher; Expects a lot from you and helps you become a better musician
One of my favorite teachers. He really understands problems and he's very flexible, kids are just too immature and think he's "mean"!
Quick to anger, but 90%+ of the time he's justified in it. All-around, a pretty good guy.
He is arrogant and does not know what he is doing. Blames other teachers, his students and parents for his mistakes! Has someone fired from another school writ
Mr. Hourigan puts in countless hours for his band. He works hard becuase he wants us to succeed.
as a music theory teahcer, he's very good. and nice i like him!
hes is a great guy, dont give him a hard time,cus hes trying to make novi better
He is a great musician. It's his first year.Give the guy a chance.
He is very arrogant and stuck up. Good musician, but full of himself
