Absolutely phenomenal teacher! He's the best conductor I've seen despite meeting many incredible conductors (incl. VSO conductor, University conductors etc.). He's generous and is never mean, but he does get disappointed if you don't try hard enough (which makes you feel bad because he's a nice person :S). He cares about the students and the whole band so so much and can inspire almost anyone! He can make anybody a good musician if they keep trying, and he's never full of it! I'll miss him most!
