Mr. Apostle is extremelyyyy talented, and those who hate on him are cry babies who only complain ( you know the type) and who simply aren't talented or open minded. He uses "tough love" but is smart, wise, and has helpful insight when helping his students with composition. He is not only a great teacher, but a friend. One of the only teachers left at LaGuardia who truly cares about the arts.
Honestly maybe one of the best teachers I've ever had. He shows you to "self-teach" and shows you that you can learn piano on your own. He is so fun and chill and compared to the beginning of the year (i sucked) i can actually play piano! THANK U MR!
Apostle isn't there to breed mediocrity. If you're a kinda sorta student, he's not gonna go out of his way for you. But if you're in his class wholeheartedly to make music, he will help you make magic happen.
Really chill and awesome. Learned so much from elementary piano
I really like Apostle. He's super chill. I've learned a lot from him. He really challenges us, and I've improved a lot.
I love Mr. Apostle. Hes hilarious and always motivated and enthusiastic, probably because hes smacked but thats not my buisness. I have him for piano which is a pretty straight foreward class and he teaches well and i learn a lot. nothing more to it
I have to teach myself in his class, he's high everyday
I'm not trying to hate, but it's very true that Apostle shows up late to class...like 10/15 minutes frequently. Then, he starts going on and on about some pointless things. After that, he starts the lesson...which is short and doesn't sound like much effort was put into it. Maybe, he's a very talented musician, but as a teacher- not so much.
He's the best teacher. Ever. He is smart, talented, and highly trained. If you focus in his class, he will help you out. You just have to show a true interest in music.
hes a smart guy but he does NOT explain ANYTHING. he's an easy grader though. i dont even know how i passed
omgg he's amazing he <3 oour class soo much nd makes us all laugh
he is abslutely insane! but that is what makes him the best teacher you will ever have! he is awomse and knows what he is talkin about, he'll help you learn so much and help ur musical career greatly.
Mr. Robert Apostle is probably one of the best and most influential teachers I've ever had in my life. A graduate of the Class of 2000, I was there when he first started, and took over for New Music S
apostle is awesome!! and i get the feeling that a lot of people are nervous around him. he's jokester! thats his style, and its hilarious. but no matter what happens in his class-you always learn
He's one of the best teachers this school has! Everybody who complains about how hard his class is only gets bad grades because they do not study, or don't move fast enough. He makes learning fun!
I think Mr. Apostle is amazing. He'll help you if you ask, but most people are just too afraid to ask. He's very realistic and most people like to live in a little bubble where everything goes their way, and Mr. Apostle pops their bubble, so they get mad.
I had piano and nms with him, and I have to say that he really knows his stuff. Basically, if he says it its true. A lot of kids dislike how he can be, but I agree with him because he just doesn't tolerate stupidity of some kids and they always deserve it anyway (even if at times it was me haha).
Mr. Apostle's theory 3 class was really the best class I took at LaGuardia. He's human, he's got spirit, and he really taught us the basics of progressions and and resolutions.. it was just a very legit course.
apostle is an amazing musician but he can't teach for life... i got good grades in his theory class because i knew all this stuff before... but he really expects u to know everything...
Mr. Apostle's piano class was very fun to say the least :D I also learned a lot, but not as much as I would have if I hadn't already known how to play before coming into Piano 1.
Apostle used to scare the daylights outta me,then I'd forget everything I was gonna say for an answer.haha As long as you do your work and he knows you are attempting to understand theory, he will be cool. If you're just taking up space in class and not caring,he'll seriously fail you without regret
mr apostle is the best!!! when i go to school im always so eager to get to his class!!!! hes so much fun to be around and i think hes a great teacher!!! just dont get him mad especially after he drank his coffee lol!!!!
Apostle is a great guy...not the best teacher, but definitly fun. he knows a ton about music, but he isn't that good at conveying that knowledge. either way, be cool to him and he is way awesome.
mr. apostle will drill the scales outta u!!espiaclly vocal freshmen but b/c of him i actually no what i'm doing on the piano and theory isnt as hard 2 grasp as it is 4 the ppl who DIDNT get him!
I was around when Apostle first came to LaG and it's great to see that he has such a wonderful rating...he's a good guy, when he lays off the coffee!
I had Apostle in 1999 and it's great to see he's still teaching, and sounds about the same. He was the only teacher who took the time to help, in that lousy school.
APOSTLE...WHAT CAN I SAY. YOU LOVE MUSIC, THATS WHY YOU YELL AT US SOMETIMES BUT HEY, WE DESERVE IT.
Mr. Apostle is the man. He is so smart and talented. He is so funny in a dorky kinda way. I definetly have a soft spot for him.
I really like Apostle, even though he doeshave a temper problem. If he likes you you're home free, but even if he likes you he tends to yell a lot.
Hes cool if ur on his good side. Does have high expectations and wants students to be more passionate about music. always keeps u after the bell. Good Tchr tho.
The man is pretty cool. However, he and a couple other music teachers take it way to seriously. I wish he would let us out at the bell though.
apostle is cool but he can't teach for dear life. he knows all his stuff but he got no type of patience and that makes him a bad teacher
one of the best music teachers in the school. he is a very inspiring man. i love his speeches/lecture on music and life. apostle is the man
i have a lot of respect for him. good teacher. good person.
Apostle loves music so much. He gets aggravated w/ students because they don't respect music as much as he does. He's one of the best teachers in this school.
He acts like our friend... The overtone series guys, can't you hear it? Theory 3I, Fall 2002/2003, 10th period, lol.
