i have never met a teacher with so many issues in all of my school years. he has a temper that he cannot control it has come to the point that chairs have been thrown at students and comment to students like "you are a waste" and "you raised you" and that they should be ashamed of us for whispering he is dangerous person.

Sod is a great music teacher, he taught me how to play guitar. He has his moments, and yes he has an major attitude, he needs to take a deep breath and calm down before he takes it out on a student everyday.

Mark is really hard core when it comes to music. He is very moody when you do something wrong, and he is very judgemental to his students

Okay -stupid rating chart doesn't reflect the questions well. In just two performances I have learnt a lot from Sod. Not everything worth having in life comes easy so if ur looking for a free ride..take phys ed! He's extremely helpful! He is one of the most knowledgable people in music that I know, and I have met great musicians across the country. Not strict but rather..disciplined which is to your benefit! Popularity is over rated, but I would choose to share the stage with Sod any day!

Got me into music, and that is something I am thoroughly grateful for. And to all you kids who think he's too tough, just learn the instrument. It's not that hard.

Well, I have to admit that some of his opinions are bizarre (and often forced down students' throats, whether they like it or not). If he could tone down on the anger, he'd be a much better teacher.

If Mark were a good teacher, then people from St.Pat's who have taken Mr. Lee's chamber ensemble would not complain that it's hard, because they'd be prepared.

He's the best music teacher I've ever had. He may have had to be tough on us sometimes but in the end, we were all much better in music than before his class.
