I love Mr. R! I had him for 2015-2016 advanced band as a 7th grader. He is really nice and has lots of knowledge. We only have to practice 100-150 minutes a week based on your band level. Depending on your musical experience, you may find his class super easy or super hard. I was in his beginning band for 6th grade and advanced band for 7th grade. We practice out of a music book in the beginning of class, then move to the same concert songs for moths until a concert or competition. Lucky you! 😊

It's incredible how amazing he is. He is very humble about what he teaches but he changes people's life's without knowing it. He deserves a raise. He not only cares about the learning but he cares about the students and what their life is like at home. No words can describe how amazing he is. 10/10 would recommend. I love him so much. Give him a raise because teacher salary isn't enough for all those instruments. And start finding band.

A wonderful, inspirational teacher. He does a fabulous job with the kids. He is not so great at communicating or responding to parents' communications. In fact, he never responded to one email I sent him. However, my child loved him and she learned a lot from him.

He is amazing and derpie and merpie but amazing and funny and helpful and fun. he even uses his poker face and cracks jokes everyday. there are those teachers that are good at teaching and then theres teachers that are just good people and then hes the perfect mix and so smart. just cuz he teaches band doesnt mean he isnt amazing at everything else. he was super good at school as a kid and got into this national scholarship thing and not many people do that. honestly best teacher ever!!!!!!!!!!!
