Hated him. Always ranting on and complaining about stuff totally unrelated to music. He's also blind and deaf, never notices the mistakes that the band makes. Very cranky teacher, expects everything to be perfect when sightreading. Terrible teacher

It says say something nice. "If you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all."

talked through a whole class once (not joking!); had warm up and then just listened... if you time him on how long he talks during rehearsal, you will laugh at how much time was wasted

Mr. Carpenter is a smart man when it comes to networking. He nags the adjudicators until they give us Gold anywhere. He teaches nothing in class. He talks and talks about the most pointless things.

He's very very predictable in terms of what he's going to say. He talks about the same things over and over again. His marking is the only thing unpredictable. Some days he marks hard, other days easy

He's a horrible teacher cause all he does is talk about survivor, or hte amazing grace but he does do a very good job at making the music program great and trains us well.
