Omar is hands down my favorite teacher I've ever had. He is so nice and funny, you don't even realize you're learning. He is absolutely fabulous.
I LOVE Mr. Bances but Music App. was one of my hardest classes sophomore year! Lots of tests and quizzes so do the extra credit, it helps, A LOT.
If it weren't for Bances, I wouldn't be as great of a musician as I am today. I don't know what went down in Band this year, but everyone will truly miss him.
i hated the class but he's such a nice guy that it's impossible to not like him!
this teacher is real laid back. sure, you do actually do work in his class, but i mean this is school, what do you expect? hes real funny and super easy to talk to. (:
Mr. Bances is a good teacher. People have to understand how hard it is to give every student in band individual attention. People need to take responsibility for themselves, he is there to guide us, not to make us get better when we don't put in any effort. He cares about the students, and although this year he was being difficult, he is only doing it for the best. He wants his students to improve and to take responsibility.
mr bances is awesome no matter what anyone thinks. he's a great teacher that you can actually talk to. and he knows how to relate to us. overall just a real guy... just don't get him mad. he's cool if you get on the good side
he is awesome... he still lets me take my test even though he knows i cant play the clarinet.
Mr. Bances is the greatest music i ever had- and almost the only. I learned how to play music and understand it. Jazz band was cool...what happen to it now? It's not jazzy.
mr. b was awesome for beginning band. i actually learned how to play and read music. i would seriously recommend to take beginning band instead of music appreciation. it's much easier.
This guy is pretty awesome. Just dont tick him off, Or else he'll kick a stereo system and break it.
Mr B is pretty cool, n e 1 who gave him a bad rating caught him at a bad time, but n e 1 who knows him seez that he only has the best interest for his students.
Even though his temper can occassionaly flare up, I thank him for finally helping the concert band obtain a superior. It wanted to have a superior before I left
Mr. B is a nice guy deep down inside. But if you get on his bad side, there's no turning back.
LOVE YA MR. B!! ur the best director i've ever had. too bad i'll be leaving soon. concert band rocks, but u need to get rid of those that don't know how to play
hes funnyv and all, but its 2 much notes to take and really unfair tests. y do we need music appreciation 4 n e wayz??
Finally we have someone who knows what they r doing. I am excited about band this year. Now I just hope all the students who dont do anything leave
I was going to play in jazz band last year but I cant deal with Escamilla anymore..I wish I knew a new director was coming..You guys sound great now
He's cool when it comes to play time but if he takes our final grades from our written work, almost all of us are gonna' fail his class!!!
Great teacher...but those tardies are killin me. And I've got 1st period! My bus schedules are seriously screwed up. Whatever, just make it like 5 plllleasee :(
every three tardies is a full letter grade down on the cemester!?!?!? wuts with that! and i have you 1st period! on the bright side, i dont think i'll ever be late to school again. thanx for making me get up a half hour earlier every morning
needs to mellow out man...too strict on his division...
