Mr. Horner is a vaunted pillar in the Bayview Secondary School community. His dedication to the music department is remarkable. Some days of the week, he gets to school at 7 a.m rehearsals and leave at 9:30 after rehearsals end. This semester, he has run 7 ensembles on his own. If you love and are eager to learn about music, you should consider yourself extremely lucky to have such a passionate teacher.
Mr. Horner talks quite a bit. But he talks about some valid ideas very worth listening to.

Good teacher but I feel that we get nothing accomplished in band. He spends too much time socializing with his students in band and we don't get enough practice to get gold at OBA. =(
But his classes are fun if that's what you're going for.

Hands down the best person I have ever had the pleasure to meet, Mr. Horner doesn't just make a good music teacher, but a great role model. I have never not looked forward to his courses, and Instrumental and Jazz bands were a joy to attend, even early in the mornings! Keep up the fantastic work!
