He may be scary but he's pretty funny and likes to pick on the flutes and french horns. But other than that he's awesome!
hes a pretty easy marker, I am not that good but as long as you practice and try your best you will get a good mark. He really cares about students most of the time, although his expectations were too high for me and was very persistent for me to continue music.
Def easy marker on repertoire/playing tests (once got 97.5 without much practice)
Sure Mr. Lum can be scary at times, but in the end he means well. He is one of the most amazing teachers I know. He knows how to make the music better even when you think it's really good. He pushes the boundaries of music and we as students profit from it. I really couldn't ask for a better music teacher ever. Mr. Lum has really changed me as a player and a person.
As much as I got yelled at back in Highschool, Mr.Lum is one of the few person in Highschool who inspired me to move on to a greater place. One of the best teacher in ACI. 5/5
I don't see why there's so much hate here, Mr. Lum is amazing teacher. He's very helpful and passionate towards his students.
I believe many of the negative comments are coming from students who do not respect music and do not take the class seriously. Mr. Lum is very passionate about his music, and only wishes to pass this love of music on to his students. Yes, he is tough on them, but that just makes them better musicians. He has churned out many aspiring musicians. Laziness, bad attitude and bitterness won't get these kids very far in the Real World. Good luck to them.
He is tough and strict, but knows his stuff and really does care about us, despite some bad moments. Some hilarious moments too!
Mr. Lum is hard on you, but if you do your job, he will be incredibly nice to you!
As others said, he can be very impatient and play favourites. But he can also be helpful and nice at times. Theory was very confusing with him, but conducting is his thing.
He demands excellence. You either put in the effort or you don't.
not very helpful. rolls his eyes at people when they dont get it. expect everyone to be as smart as him
too impatient :/ doesnt really respect students, plays favourites... should be nicer
he really should learn to have more patience. not everyone is as musical as he is, and he should SERIOUSLY stop playing favourites.
He is an amazing conductor, although he doesn't teach as well as he thinks he does. He does play favourites sometimes, but ultimately is fair when he needs to be. Very experienced and usually professional.
speaks with nice projection, emotional, unique...rewards individuals reasonably, funny and confident, intelligent and not afraid to share.
i never had him, but he has an amazing knowledgeable reputation.
For sure, he can get scary sometimes. But I think that encourages us to do better. (the reason for having a standard). But definitely knowledgeable.
He has his moods and can be scary sometimes, but he's a very caring and sweet person. I love him and I'll definitely come back to visit! =)
Excellent counsellor and conductor, just wish he could teach more in class! x)
Just had him for an honour band conductor, and he was top notch. Fantastic man and very very unique
He is a good teacher. Just don't be stupid with him.
Had him for math for a half year good teacher swore a bit...but overall he was a good teacher
cool teacher. can be scary and intimidating when mad
he can be funny when he is in a good mood.. but he is usually not in a good mood tho.. he gets annoyed really easily and yeah you havta laugh at his jokes, or else he will get mad at you
He cares about all his students. He is firm, but fair. He can be funny. Class is always interesting. Thanks Lummy! He challenges us to be the best musicians that we can be.
Selfish but you get good marks if you are a suckup and stay on his good side. (Very hard to do)
Mr. lum is a very good music teacher.However, If you have a very important sports practise and have to miss some of a rehearsal, I GAURANTEE YOU THAT HE WILL BE MAD AT YOU!!! 98%of the time=MAD!!!
He's got a reputation for being impatient and brutally honest, but he's a great teacher. You won't expect any less of him when it comes to his teaching or his music. Don't get on his bad side.
Nice and funny when he's not teaching. Kinda impatient sometimes. Dont get him mad, cuz when he's mad, it can get pretty scary.
He is pretty much mad 99% fo the time he teaches us ... he can get really mad. But then he is okay when he is in a good mood.
i dont go to aci yet but hes just...awesome and SOOOOO nice!!!
He's a great teacher and very inspirational. He's hard at times but it's just because he know's you can do better and that's how makes you realize that.
Mr. Lum makes us musicians. This is not a "bird" course. Do the work, you will do well! Prepared students love Mr. Lum! He is firm and fair! Yeah, Lummy!
MAD mood swings, funny sometimes, he is inspiring, and just stay on his good side
very funny teacher, but can be a bit scary when he is not in a good mood......
had him for music one year.. he's a funny teacher.. but can also be moody
He's a very inspirational person...thanks for everything! He's the reason I pursued music in university! Thank you for everything
I guess he can okay, but I hate it when he's in a bad mood. it's like the hulk
He's rude. Most o u say 'stay on his gud side and he's pretty ok', the problem is, with him, if its not the good side, its the bad side, u cant be neutral
You can tell that he cares about what he's teaching. I have a lot of respect and admiration for him! One of my favourite teacher's by far!
Excellent Musician & very knowledgable Music teacher. Keep up the excellent work in music teaching. MN
he's great outside of school. in school, advised to stay on good side
Dont get on his bad side. He is really funny and helpful
