I had him back in grade 9. He picks favourites and is spiteful to kids who are struggling. I had 5th period music, and remember crying during 4th period because I was so scared to go to his class. After his class I can't listen to music with the same enjoyment I used to.
But if you're on his favourites list, or in band (like I'm guessing most of the other reviewers are) he'll be the best teacher you ever had and talk about him all the time.
Overall he is a good teacher but can forget about people, especially the ones at the back
THE BEST TEACHER EVER!!! Well, he does pick favourites, but he's so chill xD The band is all because of him... YOU'RE THE BEST MR. P!
He was a really fun teacher. He explained things well if you took the time to ask him about it, tried to make the class amusing and teaches interesting things outside the textbook. Plus watching movies all the time is also a good break.
Spent four years in music and band with him. Hard to sum up in 200 characters. Wonderful musician, genuinely cares about his students, and made Loyola a more positive experience. Does play favourites.
He is probably the most Positive teacher in his school. There's ABSOLUTELY no teacher like him.
Student's who have him as a teacher always remember him, or visit his class. He is very intelligent and gifted in music. if u need help with ur instrument he will help you.
There is a 2% chance that he will Yell at anyone in the class. he tends to hold in his anger. he probably only yells once in a whole semester. He only yells if you don't practice, dont follow instructions, or dont care.
great musician and good music teacher! he is a bit impatient and you dont want to get on his bad side. Just practice and pay attention during theory and he will treat you the same as everyone else. if you slack off and dont practice you probably wont like him as much. pretty funny guy and funny jokes! He may expect a little too much but that is why the loyola band is one of the best!
Has favourites, and is very easily agitated. Gets easily annoyed with students who aren't blessed with musical talents/slow to absorb his teachings.
hes amazing! hes a little moody but then he's only human! one of my fav teachers!
if youre one of his favorites early on then he'll be the best teacher youve ever had, otherwise, he's not that great.
why does everyone like him? hes so mean and doesnt help
he was ok. he's a great musician, but he doesnt really mark fairly. i agree that he picks favourites.
talented musician, moody and has his favourites. but whatever i got to play bass guitar. maybe expects a little too much.
Most amazing music teacher ever! Excellent trumpet player!
Funny guy. Knows his stuff. But he expects too much from his students. Gets very moody at times. Plays favourites.
He expects too much on playing tests. We're doing this to earn a music credit; not join the orchestra!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
He is a great teacher for music (gets a little weird sometimes & tempermental)
