Good teacher, sometimes he expects too much of his students but for the most part he shows genuine compasion. His grading is very harsh but most end up with an A in band.
I agree about Fischer. It is quite amusing to hear about things he has done before his romp here.I do not understand why he was hired. Good musician or not he is not a good example
Chooses great music (tough but fun); cares about his students more than any other teacher I've had. Payne was a wonderful mentor to me and a terrific musician.
I LOVE MR PAYNE! he is sooo great! you can't ask for a better teacher. he is a wonderful musician as well. he has taught me a lot! if you have him, your lucky!
Mr. Payne... What can I say. The FUNNIEST teacher, no- funniest person, I've ever met. And he cares for all his students. Take AP theory, it's a blast!
this guy is very awesome. nice nice guy. he was the only reason why i stayed in band (i was starting to hate all those marching band kids)
