Although I have always (and will always) be sub-par at the Tenor saxophone, but Mr. Lustig is one of the best teachers I have ever had. Very supportive and humorous in class.

He's a great guy and great music teacher. He loves what he does, and I am so thankful to have had him as my band teacher since freshman year. He is one of the only teachers I will truly miss.

He is a terrific music teacher. I went from being frustrated about having the class to sticking with it for a fourth year now. He loves what he does, he's good at what he does, and wants to help the students that want to impr

He'll give up on you during class if you're being incompetent with your playing, but if you go to him he'll help you. He expects you to pick up the slack in playing, he can't do it all. Otherwise, fun class :)

He didn't like me at first because i talked too much, when he realized that i could settle down for class and actually play, he was very nice. If you respect him, he respects you; playing wellalso helps. Hes funny(:

I was so terrible in beginner band, and Mr. Lustig was understanding about it. He told me and my mother that I just have to get over the embarrassment from the testing. Now, I'm in concert band! I love him.

I'm only in beginner band, but Mr. Lustig seems okay. Don't forget your instrument and make sure to take it out and seek help if you need it and you'll be okay. Watch his eyebrows when he plays. xD

Mr. Lustig taught my jazz and concert band back in '95-'96. These two classes were absolutely the best part of my highscool experience. I can not imagine what Townsend would have been like without him.
