He was a good teacher. He is knowledgeable and helpful when it comes to music. HOWEVER, he picks favourites. If you aren't one of them your grades will suffer. When I stopped taking music in grade 12 because I didn't have room, he turned on me.
To be honest, Mr P is not as great as he seems. He chooses his favorites and it is obvious. You will get a 90 if you just say you want to take music in university. If he doesn't like you, he's a jerk. simple. The classes are fun though and the trips are rewarding. Take the class because its great but don't let him suck up to you. Put ups are awkward and he gets annoyingly emotional with the students. One more thing, don't get on his bad side, add kicks in and flips out instantly, keeps grudges
Steve Pankiewicz is absolutely the best. He is the reason why I made it into Ottawa U for music... Thank you, Steve! And btw, his methods WORK so stop complaining... GOSH!
he always wanted the good ppl inhis class...i didnt have room in my schedule for music and he kept pressuring me to take it...i had to get another teacher to talk to him...but hes a good music teacher
Not currently a student anymore but I can say that Steve was one of my favorite teachers. I was there from day 1! I was in the guineapig group - I think everything worked out great
he's an awesome teacher!! he never lets u down and he always cheers u up and acts like a fool to make us laugh!! he's the best teacher anybody can have!!
Mr.P. had a mullet when he was in high school...maybe he thought it was cool then but...no it's still cool. Your the best teacher I've had so far in high school
while i had him, he was cool, the speed boat for the horns lol. i quit his classs and now im on his wall of shame basically lol
Practice Practice Practice. But in this class, you always have fun!!! Thanx Mr. P.
