Nice guy, but his breath could kill you. It's brutal. Sorry man, but whatever is going on in your guts needs to be addressed because that kind of halitosis comes deep from within!

I had Cliff Sayliss as my music teacher in the one year I went to SWC, 1993. Mr. Sayliss was a great teacher with a good sense of humour who has a great appreciation for music of many genres. I popped into the school a few years ago and saw him in the hallway, red as a beet, sweating profusely and running around; the dude works too hard! Great minder on school trips, very fair in class and I thank him for the year he was my teacher. ~Steve Burke

Mr. Sayliss is awesome! He is very knowledgeable, he's the head of the music department and is always busy with something. He runs concert choir, man choir, jazz band, concert band, and he teaches guitar, vocal, and instrumental classes. The only reason he's disorganized is he does EVERYTHING, he tries to do everything at once. I've learned a lot from him and he's really funny.

Clearly, whoever doesn't like Mr. Sayliss isn't really a musician, because if they were, then they would know what it is like to be constantly busy and maybe they'd get his bazaar jokes. HE'S THE BEST
