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
