Mr.hansen is a great teacher and he is very enthusiastic. Much unlike different teachers, he will apologize if he is wrong or does something wrong. He can be strict and lays down the law about somethings but he also a great teacher. He has tons of wisdom and takes an interest in students and is very kind.

Wastes time talking about things that dont matter and then gets mad when you dont make eye contact. It's impossible to tell what will make him mad and what wont since it is impossible to tell his mood. He would also rather make fun of students instead of helping them. He also refuses to accept that he is wrong even when the entire class is against him and is way too proud to listen to reason. He has very little if any regard for student's personal lives when scheduling things.

Doesn't teach, just says play and hope you can play it because if not you'll be put on the spot in front of the class. Many dropped out because of the teacher and it's quite disappointing.

Jeff Hansen is a teacher unlike any other. I have never witnessed another human possess his unique combination of spiteful condescension and racial intolerance. The majority of the kids in his class are afraid of his temperamental outbursts and random beratings.

The reason I quit band. Probably is bipolar as one day he will be nice, and other days he loses his temper for you lending a pencil to someone sitting beside you. I kid you not, he actually yelled at someone for doing that. Very rude and always goes off topic, talking about random stuff for sometimes 30 min. Will always pick on certain people in class and picks favorites. He thinks he can never be wrong and always tries to find faults with you. Has a huge ego too, overall awful teacher.

By far one of the most hated human beings I have come to contact with over the years. It's hard to imagine how he hasn't gotten caught yet for the amount of time he's wasted for an average student, and then his temperamental bipolar attitude, which is hard enough to deal with.

He's a really good teacher but he's extremely strict and mean to everybody if it's near the end year concert or some other festival. I personally think hes "cool" and he tells jookes that are soo lame they're actually funny.

Class is always a breeze to participate in... if you lack a heart and are mentally incapable of registering emotional abuse. Leaves one on the verge of a mental explosion.

One of the things he doesn't teach is MUSIC; Should've taken more science classes in high school rather than this, but hey, it was kind of fun to prance around dressed like a Canadian flag.

I think he's better than his wife. He actually lets us go on trips (which are pretty fun). He does seem a little mean to other fellow band members and makes some rude comments/jokes.

He picks favourites, and choosess which to dislike. Approaching him is scary, if you are not one of his "pets". Acts if the band is a family, only in class, but individually, he acts rather mean.
