If you want a good english mark, I'd recommend Mr. Gow. If you want to be humiliated, lectured daily and confused most of the time, I'd also recommend Mr. Gow. He isn't a bad guy, just too opinionated and yells at me whenever I forget my book or needa go to the bathroom.

Mr Gow is clearly passionate about music and can be a great teacher. I've been in his vocal class every chance I had and I'm majoring in vocal music next year after I graduate. I really enjoyed having him and learned a lot about music theory. Unfortunatly if you're someone who thinks a vocal class or music class in general will be easy or you don't care about practicing or paying attention to theory, you're going to have a hard time. I recommend knowing some theory before taking music with him.

Had him for english and I know for a fact that we didn't learn as much as other classes. I felt way behind my friends. And he really likes the sound of his own voice!

I couldn't have asked for a better music teacher. He was incredible through my four years. He is very helpful, but sometimes is constructively hard on students which makes some dislike him.
