He is really awesome. If you take one of his classes that is not band, it will be the easiest class you take in your life. He really only cares about his band classes, which is great because his other classes are basically study halls. I had him for Guitar in American Music and we got TWO assignments the ENTIRE semester, it was great! Easy, easy A.

Mr. Dolan's class is an automatic A for everyone. But if you choose to actually talk to him, he is very knowledgeable on a variety of musical subjects. You can gain a lot from talking to him. He also has hilarious stories.

I have had Mr. Dolan for six years because he used to work in the Orange Jr. High and he is the best teacher I have ever had. He's sooo nice and understanding and is a great listener when it comes to school issues or anything

Great band director. Also picks fun and interesting pieces. His other classes are what you make them. Can be nothing more than a joke GPA booster or truly informative.
