C is hands down one of the greatest people I have ever known. I am honored and so lucky to have been one of his students. I wish I could repeat high school just to be in his marching/concert bands again. He is such a talented, compassionate, and inspiring teacher. In all my years of schooling, from primary to grad school, no teacher even comes close to being on C's level. He's incomparable. He's inspired me to become a teacher, and for that, I am forever grateful! Thanks C! HL '97-'01
They do not call this man the "Legend" for no reason. He is know as the "legend" throughout the county and state!
His guy was so knowledge and the cool.We miss him as he she the program crumbling after he left.
The best, most talented, caring and hard working teacher ever to grace the halls of DHS. He inspired almost every student he touched and every one was equal. No favorites.
This man is so dearly missed. he is miss ever second of the day since he retired. He loved all of his students, was a, wonderful musician and inspired his student to succeed.
This teacher was so wonderful; kind, gracious, inspiring, and a superior musician. He is missed every second that he has been gone!
They should name the auditorium after this great teacher!! After all we have the "Quirk Gym" for a jock. Why not a room name for a REAL teacher and intellectual?
As a senior shortly graduating I can say he was a fantastic musician, a great conductor and wonderful teacher. The best one out there!
He was the best music teacher or even teacher to ever grace the halls of Dumont High School. The band was always large and always sounded so professional.
We missed you at the festival last night. The band is not the same without you.It is just not the same. It is getting much smaller because YOU are no longer there.
I am a music major in college because of Mr. C and his musicianship, He was just incredible
Mr. C is God!!!! End of story! He was a wonderful musician, great conductor, and best of all a superior teacher. The band program flourished under him. He has great sense of humor and was alway fair and kind.
Mr. C, please come back we need you desperately! The glory days of DHS are over unless you return.
Hands down the best teacher in Dumont High. An exceptional musician and renaissance man. He surely will be missed. I cried when I heard he was leaving
Meant to give him all greats. He is the best teacher at DHS. Great musician and really cares.
Love this guy! We went to NYC on a Humanities trip. He knew everything about all the churches while all other teachers silent. Brilliant man. In band he knows what to do with every note of music. Soooo sorry he is retiring.
I love this man. hes so helpful with the color guard. when ever i have problems with bennett i know hes there to help us even though hes leaving. he really cares about the band and the color guard. hes the best band teacher ever to grace the halls of dumont high school. the beand wont be the same with out him
Mr. C is the best teacher I have ever had in any class and I am a senior. I doubt I will have a more caring or smarter teaching in college. MR. C is such a fine musician. He knows what he wants on every single bar of music we play. C taught me how to play very musically. Fine conductor!!!! I see him regularly helping woodwinds with alternate fingers even though he is a trumpeter. He has a great sense of humor and cares about every student in his classes.
Hands down the best band teacher there is to date. He always cares about the students and knows how to get anyone to love music! Just don't forget to go to lessons otherwise lol
i love Mr. C! he is really funny and is always very nice with everyone. he helps anyone that asks him and does a great job wiht the marching and concert band every year
Totally awesome!!!! As a senior I can say each year he has turned out the best band possible. He knows how to get the most out of his students and make you feel good about yourself. The most talente
Mr. C is the man. No words can describe him better than that. He does what he can to support you as a musician, and he is a great teacher, mentor, and friend. He is honestly one of the few teachers I
I was a senior at Dumont High School during Mr. Cs first year of teaching . To this day, I still consider him the best teacher i ever had in school !
Mr C is the aboslute best. The best band teacher I ever had
I went to Bergen just so I could continue my musical studies with him for two more years. I will then finish and get my music degree at MSU. A fine musician and teacher.
Cool guy. Just go to the concerts, football games, and marching band practices and you will get an A. Although he can be pretty annoying if you don't attend lessons a lot.
I'm a music teacher now and can say without any doubt that C is a great person and educator. Him and P both bust your chops, but that usually means they know you can do (play/sing) better
He is a great teacher and I loved his class...just get to lessons and don't the games.
i just graduated and played sax for 4 years in Band & ensembles. had him for Humanities too. Love the guy!! Great teacher & musician. Taught me much. Love him.
The freakin guy does it again!!! The has the tallent and expertise to turn our concerts into top notch performances. We shinned last at the conert, Best teacher in the school not a doubt,

The best music teacher! Has turned us into a top notch band. Excellent musician, teacher and conductor!
I have him only for Humanities. He is truly amazing. Interesting!! The amount of his knowledge is amazing. Brilliant. plus HE IS A "RENAISSANCE MAN".
The absolute best teachers in DHS. He is just amazing!
The best teacher in the school! He is nice, cool and an oustanding musician. He turned us in to a top notch band this year!
Amazing teacher and musician. Turned me into a much better player & performer. This man may be one of the best in the state or even the country.
amazing guy. he made me a great musician. but doesn't look ya in the eye.
He is the man! The band is really rude to him and should not be. He is the best and makes us sound soooo good. Gret musician and conductor
have him for band--really cool gets angry sometimes but you can expect that when he has a whole band to control. nice guy, good teacher
I do not take bad only Humanities. Had him for the first time last week. The man is absolutely amazing! Mad cool. Smart and full of information yet funny. The best teacher I have yet to have.
Have him for band and humanities, Brilliant! Knows music, history, art, NYC knows it all! Great conductor. The best teacher in the scholl hands down.
3 words...LORD OF THE DANCE!!! 8P He's such a cool band teacher.
He is the Man!!! He turned us from nothing into a super sounding marching band. He knows his stuff. The best teacher in the school.
IMr. C is certainly not mean! He is very fair! He msut control over 150 students at one time alone! Who else could do that. Look what happens when he is not there. He is a super musician.
He needs to relax, but I must admit, he is a great music teacher. He knows his stuff. We sound horrible in the beggining, but by the concert, we sound great. Can be mean sometimes, but he is good.
I totally agree that he is one of the best. Humanities or band he knows his stuff. He is one of the best you will ever come across in HS or college
C is one of the best teachers and people you will ever meet. He has a passion for teaching and cares about his students. You always want to go to band and humanities.
Most caring teacher you'll ever find. He really knows his stuff. Show that you care and he will help you out. Show that you don't care and he will go after you.
The man is a great conductor and teacher. Builds students up not break them. Talented muscian and composer. Great in Humanities!!! Does the best gield trips in Nrw York City
wHAT CAN ANYONE SAY. "c" IS THE MAN. THW BEST ALL AOUND TEACHER IN THE SCHOOL.
Amazing!!! Whether with music or Humanities he just knows it all. Knows everything about New York City and good enough to be a history or art teacher too!!! The best
A true teacher who knows his stuff and cares about what they are learning. Always omplements good student performance when it is deserved.
Mr. C is AMAZING... you are truly honored to know someone as great as him. Get really involved with band (hello! retired drum major here!) and you'll really se
I agree he is the best. I have learned so much in band and in Humanities. "C" Rocks!!!
He can be really funny. His poem each year at the band dinner is great!!! Loves his students and will always help them.
His temper is not that bad. The man handles 175 students by himself. Who else could do it without raising his voice? Look what they put the man through.
He's great with music...he comes across better in Humanities than Band...I had him for 4 years, you just have to ignore his temper problem
hE DOES A REALLY AWESOME JONB AND IS COMMITED TO HIS STUDENTS. hE GETS NO HELP OR SUPPORT FORM THE SCHOOL.
Mr. Talent. Care about all of his students and a great Humanities teacher.
We just had the NYC tour. It was great!!! He knows his so much about every buildig in New York
Hes one of my favorite teachers...he really cares about his students and the music...if he gets touchy it is because he only wants us to look good and not make
Awesome. He is so talented. He writes the best marching band arrangementsmusic I mean. Just a real talented and nice guy.
As a Humanities teacher he knows his stuff! He knows everything about Beethoven and now so do we.
I graduated from DHS two years ago and Mr. C is still one of my favorite teachers. I've never had a music director that loved his job and his students so much.
Mr. C is a great teacher. He knows what he is talking about and he makes music more than just music. He even makes marching band fun
As a Humanities teacher he seems so smart. He knows music, the history and everything else. Just smart. Makes sure everbody know the stuff too!
The best of the best! Really knows music. Cares about hids.
i think he is a good teacher but i'm afraid nothing can compete with the bergenfield hs marching band they are sooooooo good why cant we be like that!
