I play the viola and i'm still gonna be in orch and i look forward to it for the rest of high school. He is very helpful towards me and other people i know. But i do agree that he doesn't give enough time for new music.
im quitting next year cuz he killed my favorite thing. thanks. you lost a viola and good luck scrabbling for one of those. im joining band.
Give him a break? Why?! He doesn't give us enough time to go over the music. At critical moments he can't work with us. Always absent. Neglect not good.
He completly neglects certain sections of the orchestra not spending any time with them, Schedules way to many concerts and has his favorite students.
Mr. Langridge isn't the best conductor, but at least he tries. He is a little late and also doesn't give music enough time but is nice otherwise.
Music is hard and we don't get it early enough. HE NEEDS TO CONDUCT!!!!!! Please play the music from a CD so we know how it sounds.
