I graduated in ''01 and he was probably the best teacher in the school back then. I had no background in music, but really took to his approach.
The people who don't like Doc Finn usually don't have an appreciation for music, in any sense of the word. Doc Finn is the best music teacher in the entire school and it's a shame the school refuses to invest more resources in the music department. Doc Finn is the core of the music department and he's a fantastic guy, and I had the pleasure to get to know him.
I don't think he's that bad. Yeah the doctor thing can get annoying and i cant figure uot how he writes that fast ont the board. just ut in the 5 min. before class to do the work and you'll get an A
My prescription to the "doctor" is a bag of cough drops. His voice get's on my nerves.
He takes music seriously (obviously, he has a doctorate in it). I have nothing against him personally, I just don't believe music should be required.
Knows music, good teacher, class isn't too difficult if you put the effort into learning the material. Still, not very approachable, which can intimidate freshmen. Also, did not have a terribly interesting class, which is unusual for music.
Give Finnegan a break. He's a good guy, those who hate him don't know him enough. Freshman music is easy if you just spend 5 minutes doing the chapters.
Not a great teacher. Useless with his music knowledge. Unclear and the book he uses is not a good one.
excellent teacher and author. class is easy, although yes, you actually have to study.
Mr.finnegan is the man.. He writes so fast on the board! He's not so bad once you get to know him
Boring and ruins music. Do not 'put off' his class because he'll put you in summer school for music. EASY CLASS
Ruins music for majority of students. Thinks he is more important than he is.
great guy...really opened up my eyes and got me into music more
I don't know a ton about music, but I enjoyed his class. I think he's actually a nicer guy than most people think.
hes the biggest jek and he failed me becausse he didnt like me favors all the music geeks
What other class allows you to listen to pop music and get graded for it?
He's an ok teacher, even though he did ruin the choir.I thought mr. McHugh was doing an awesome job. Robertstone Rajiv Goodridge is the man!!!STONEY!!
this guy is hardcore he loves his music but when he writes on the chalk board its like chicken scrach he always breaks the chalk(funnyest ever)
The man ruined music for me forever. Hilarious to see him sing though.
The man. He takes the most heat and is an easy target, because he teaches every freshman.
I don't know why everyone's badmouthin' Finnegan, i mean, i thought his class was good...good..good..
thought i did good on the final music project, guy gave me a C, not cool.
If you have this guy in band he's actually really helpful. He really knows his stuff and strives to make musicians the best they can be.
I like to listen to music not analyze it. He can really make you hate any song.
