T in my opinion loves to pick favorites. i don't feel he is as great as many people are talking about. he sort of put me down and i'm love music, i love singing but i couldn't go on with that guy.

T teaches and inspires us every day, whether it's telling us that "Choral music is 80% visual" or taking kids to sing at nursing homes around the holidays. He's an amazing man and I thank him for being like a father to me.

He's the best kind of teacher because he doesn't only want to teach you about music, he wants to teach you about life. He wants his life to make a mark in yours. He's incredibly fair and generous, not to mention talented.

I cannot stand being in his class. I am a musician too and all he does is pick his favorites. That is NOT a good quality in a teacher...

T was one of my favorite teachers when I was at North. He was caring and fun and puts his blood and sweat into his job. I can't say enough positive things.

Great guy who really does care about the future of his students who are serious about music. A little arrogant but a very talented musician with a lot to teach.

T is the best choral director I've ever had. I can't see how people find him a bad teacher. If you don't take advantage of him, he's the best teacher.

From the split ratings, you can clearly see that T rubs some kids the wrong way. I find him extremely easygoing, which i like, but also extremely phony, which i dont like. I feel he cares very little about me individually. Shouldnt be a teacher.

T really IS the man. I don't see how you could call him arrogant, or anything. He is VERY easy to talk to, and will help you out anytime, even if he's not your student. The coolest guy!!!
