If there is a teacher that should get the teacher of the year award, it should be Mr. McKinnon! I graduated in 2017 and spending 5 years with him was very enjoyable. He made class very fun and entertaining. I looked forward to seeing him and being in class. He is very nice and will go out of his way for any student. He cares about his job and his students. He wasn't only my chorus teacher for 5 years but a great mentor! VERY FAIR! I was in chamber singers and reg ensemble and it was awesome!!!
He might be very strict, but if you get on his good side he is really a nice guy. He wants perfection all the time which could get annoying. He does have a good taste in music and I like when he mak
Good teacher, expects a lot. would be more popular if he stopped being so strict and stopped calling students adhingas when we speak. He needs to stop making us sing beatles songs and spiritual songs
he never tells us how to sing a song. he gives a song and just makes us singing without telling us the right keys
Takes his music very seriously, however he needs to lighten up and realize that his class isnt the most important. Especially when you need to take 5 lessons and you have a full adv. courseload
I love McKinnon! He's the best teacer ever, and he makes me aughh sooo much :]}
he's kinda tough. very nice if u get 2 know him and are on his good side. he does his job and does it good, as far as i'm concerned.
Mr. Mckinnon is possibly the most misunderstood teacher here at New Hyde park. Either you love the guy or you cant stand him but he is deffinetly very very good at what he does
tough, but really nice if u get 2 no him...and he teaches u how 2 sing which is what he's HIRED to do.
he's tough but i mean you really learn how 2 sing...i just hate how he makes us stand all the time;i dont CARE if it's good posture, my feet hurt!
hey stop waith the beatles songs please put songs that are in the age not from prehistory like ummm i dont know oh keep the beatles
he is a great teacher i really learned alot in chorus i just wish he's stop wit the crappy songs like kirye elieson or wateva or deep rivah but he's still great
I think he's a great person and teacher. I really learned a lot from his class!
EVIL man... ok he was a good teacher but still EVIL... threatened 2 fail me if i didn't follow through w/ all county... evil!
yegaslatta in my language that means your really awesome!!
Mr.Mckinnon is a little strict but he does a great job of teaching chorus bit i wish he would choose less spiritual songs for us to sing
mckinnons nice if ur nice to him. hes funny and he made me love chorus.u learn as much in his class as any other.
Amazing musician! If he wasnt tough, chorus would sound horrible & it's far from that! Keep goin McKinnon!
he calls his students names which i find mean and unprofessional he is mean not friendly but he is a good music teacher but he is not paicent but i dis like wit
