He was mu chorus teacher back in 90's at the Halsey JHS. He was and is the greatest chorus teacher ever! I conduct children's choir at my church and I use a lot of what I learned from him. As I loved and enjoyed his teaching, I have my kids love and enjoy singing. He is a true teacher who inspires students' heart!

He's a top notch music teacher and really captures the attention of his students. I was in his chorus class my freshman year. Unfortunately, he retired the year after. However, the knowledge I gained within that one year lasted me my whole high school experience.

Mr Hyman was my chorus teacher at Halsey JHS back in early 1990's. He is the BEST!!! I learned a lot from him. Just from his teaching, I learned to appreciate music and singing. He is a wonderful teacher.

I've had him for four years and I can tell you that he is probably the best teacher in that school. Not only is he a great teacher that has life, but is intelligent in subjects beyond music. Amazing!

His class is really easy if you know music. I fail the vocal part of the final when I took Chorus, but he still gave me a 90.

I guess he's an okay teacher. He's really cool and stuff. He doesn't really work with the kids individually and works with us as a group thinking that we're all on the same level.

Mr.Hyman is a brilliant teacher.He always laughs around but when it comes to really playing music, he gets strict. It's only been my first year taking Honors Orchestra, but I already know he is a good teacher.I'm glad he is my teacher because I'm sure I will learn a lot and improve as a musician. GO MR.HYMAN!!!
