He's honestly one of the nicest teachers I've ever had. He's understanding, and funny, and connects to the students fairly well. He's helped me grow as a musician and he truly helps us feel like a family.
River Edge students, I will compare Mr. O'Reilly to Mr. Scott. Mr. Scott is DEFINITELY meaner than Mr/ O, but he does it to help us, while Mr. O is lax in comparison. Mr. O is a worse teach than Mr. Scott, who managed to teach every single one of his students to become a musician in weekly classes. In middle school, I feel that I have become a worse musician, as Mr. O doesn't teach us, he only offers advice. Mr. O and Mr Scott both use textbooks, but Mr. Scott gives us practice. (0 space left)
The music he chooses are way too easy, we usually play middle school music. We end up learning nothing, in addition to this he constantly cancels rehearsal for stupid reasons and he doesn't know how to teach or play other instruments properly. His marching band constantly gets last place all the time, and all his other ensembles suck. He's great if you want free GPA. Otherwise, you will learn nothing. The RD Jazz, concert, and marching band are the worst ensembles in the state.
MR ORIELLY IS THE MAN!!!! Lol once he was conducting and dabbed in the end. He's really chill, nice, funny. Plus, sometimes we get to watch movies (like the Little Mermaid) but we just go on our laptops, etc. We make a lot of good memories in Band and he has this huge obsession with Marching Band. He's gonna give u extra credit if u join... the songs are easy and the class is fun.
he is really cool and relaxed. he doesnt really care what you do and likes to joke around and have fun
his class is now comp lit for me. and he doesnt help much. and it is boring.
I think that he is one of the coolest teachers in the school. but he was never satisfied with anything.
Personally i think he's only nice to those in the marching band....boy do i have a lot to say regarding his constant criticism...
he is soooooooooooo cool i really likke going to world of music and technology
i used 2 hate band, now i love it! It's sooo much fun and he is funni 2. We watch forrest gump 2! Our songs r not that great though.
very fun teacher. tends to get annoyed when were not total focused, but understandable. fun class, cause he jokes around with his students, and always says hi to u in the hallway:)

Hes a great band teacher---------good songs 2 play 2!!!!!!!!
he's so cool! he's the only teacher that actually cares about me. my last year band teacher was horrible, but he's GREAT! MyStErYgUrL
Never had him in middle school- he's the marching band teacher and the best, sweetest person you could hope for. He's bringing the band back. ^_^
