He may be scary but he's pretty funny and likes to pick on the flutes and french horns. But other than that he's awesome!

Sure Mr. Lum can be scary at times, but in the end he means well. He is one of the most amazing teachers I know. He knows how to make the music better even when you think it's really good. He pushes the boundaries of music and we as students profit from it. I really couldn't ask for a better music teacher ever. Mr. Lum has really changed me as a player and a person.

As much as I got yelled at back in Highschool, Mr.Lum is one of the few person in Highschool who inspired me to move on to a greater place. One of the best teacher in ACI. 5/5

As others said, he can be very impatient and play favourites. But he can also be helpful and nice at times. Theory was very confusing with him, but conducting is his thing.

He is an amazing conductor, although he doesn't teach as well as he thinks he does. He does play favourites sometimes, but ultimately is fair when he needs to be. Very experienced and usually professional.
