Mr. Viola is an extremely unintelligent teacher. He does not know anything about music outside of the very basics. He often gets his rhythm and counting mixed up, and cannot conduct for his life.

He's actually very good IMO. If you pay attention and follow his instructions, then he'll give you an above 90 grade. Only problem is his lessons are too slow.

He looks like David Grohl from the Foo Fighters in the Learn to Fly video. The flight attendant one. He doesn't know how to get his orch. to play well.

This guy can teach orchestra only to violins and violas. He doesn't know a single thing about woodwinds. He says just put more air in order for woodwinds to get loud. Viola can't teach woodwinds.

He treated me like i was dirt and Mr. Samuels is a much better teacher. Mr. Samuels knows all the instruments and Mr. Viola only knows the violin.
