He was a great teacher to me. But that was because I was one of his favourites. My siblings hated him. He's very knowledgeable in music and when he and Mr. Smith taught together, you could definitely tell that O was a better teacher.

Best teacher ever, but very narcisstic and sometimes gossips behind other student's backs. Helpful, and he makes classes really fun. Gonna miss him so much. :(

Before Mr Smith came he was one of my favourite teacher's. Now he has changed the way he acts and teaches. Don't be afraid of asking him for help since he is more than willing to help.

He's not the same Mr.O that most of us used to like.Way too strict now.He doesn't teach music anymore as much as dictatorship; he ruined my love for my instrument and my enthusiasm of music at school.

If you are looking to develop your musical ability in this class, it is not the one for you. He will treat you fairly if you are an amazing player but if not prepare to be ignored. He cares only about the band not the student
