He's so funny and wonderful and extraordinarily passiona E about his job and music. Not very good at teaching theory but stellar at performance. Heavily biased but for the most part you get the mark you deserve. You learn a lot do greaten music appreciation. Very funny and strict but kind. He makes such big impacts and it was an honour to have him as a teacher.

to by honest, I think mr Anderson is probably the funniest music teacher. He's so cheerful it made me really happy to be in his class. He marks what you deserve. He is really fair and he really helped my theory.

He knows exactly what he's doing and is passionate about it. I love that about him. However he can be greatly insensitive and heavily biased. Kids that should be failing are getting better marks than kids who work extremely hard to do well and should be doing incredibly. He tries to make himself sounds like a jester, but he goes overboard and really just isn't that funny. Get on his good side and STAY THERE.

Mr. Anderson is not a good theory teacher because his teachings were very unclear and I didn't learn anything in his course, in performance class he embarrassed me three times and made me cry twice. Mr. Anderson was also very rude and uncaring for many students and would always be sarcastic. Overall not a good teacher and very rude to many of his students.

Good teacher i guess. He knows a lot, he just chooses not to share it with the class. Picks favorites, so get on his good side. Often picks a student to hate and fails them no matter how well they do

Mr. A is a great performance teacher and choir conducter, yet when it comes to non performance mr A fails to make the class engaging and flow smoothly. He can occasionally be condesending to students who dont understand and concept.

Ive had Mr. Anderson for non perf and perf, he's a great teacher when it comes to performance, but not so much non-perf. He really only likes/knows his chamber choir students, and definitely has favourites. Get on his good side.

I am an instrumentalist. From my perspective, I only get him for non-performance, and I see that he knows close to nothing in theory and music history. He may be a good for vocalists, but he is so bad in teaching theory and probably doesn't even know the material himself.

I LOVE Ms.Anderson!! She was my french teacher and I did struggle a lot, but she helped me through it and I ended up getting an 86% on my final exam and when i saw that my report card mark raised by 10% we both started tearing up and she told me how she was so happy and couldn't believe how well I did. She also spoke some serbian and if you're reading this Ms.Anderson, you know who it is ;)

for the most part, i love mr anderson. he is very good at conducting as you can tell by our amazing chamber choir, and what other high school teacher do you know who would be able to run a 360-voice choir and have it sound at least half decent? he is understanding and even though he can be intimidating and a bit unfair sometimes, he is overall a great teacher.

Bobby is awesome. He can be a bit strong suited at some points, but he does it for his passion of music and that's why he's not the easiest or the hardest person since he excepts you to go beyond the goal which is the best thing for a teacher to do.

Mr. A is the only teacher I LOVE for being so blatantly rude and mean. Is very clear in his lessons and very funny. But he needs to start getting down to business in theory class instead of putting things off. I can't remember having a full class on Cadences this year, while I heard that Collin's had 3.

You love Ritz and Chamber so much that you forget the other people who aren't your favorites, you should give some instrumetalists a easier time, we know may not be the best singers but some of us actually want to sing for Ritz so cut us some slack. You mark hard, but that's cool, because it only makes me want to do better, but at least give us a pointer or two, you can't expect us to know everything on our own.
