Four words ladies - Bench Pressing A Buick :)
It's sad to think that MMA is without this gem of a teacher. Mr. Van, you where more than an educator, you where a friend to all of us, and like family to some as well. I miss your class, and the band more than anything else.
BEST teacher in the WORLD!!! So upset that he won't be at MMA next year :(
He is awesome :} I'm really ticked off that he is leaving this year :\ :( Best violin teacher ( ever ) :D :D :D :D :D :D
MR.VAN ROCKS MY SOCKS ON FIRE! im gonna miss him soooo much :(
My all time favourite teacher!!! Sad he's retiring as many students will miss out on an excellent teacher :(
He's probably one of my favorite teachers. Hes absolutely hilarious and a wonderful musician. I am so sad that he's leaving in 2 years. He's just, so great. :)
OMG. He was a really good teacher last year. He always made us laugh and the room never has negative energy. Looking forward to having him this year.
He's dedicated but acts like he's a child when he doesn't get his way.
Wow... he's just so funny... hardly like a teacher at all really - and he's as weird as his students. He names spiders... and... uhm... Lets us paint walls.
The best teacher I had in high school. Mr. Van inspired his students to achieve and exceed their potential. His passion and talent for music is inspirational.
he's really great with the junior band, he is probably why most people havn't quit,i just wish that we were better becos i think that he gets frustrated with us
We are very fortunate to have a musician as a teacher. A lifetime appreciation for music was what I learned in his class.
Mr. Van is an absolutely amazing teacher. He has such a passion for music and passes it on to his students. He is the greatest!!
I miss music because it was so funny, just like watching a stand up comedian.
He's the best! I always laugh at his sayings. I swear he should be like a comedian he's so great! His love of music has taught me a lot!!
I am musically challenged but I enjoyed the time I spent in guitar and if you like music he'll be your fav teacher ever!
this teacher rox, he's always funny and does whatever he can to get you interested in music, hes definitely unique, nobody like him and talented to boot
AWESOME OPPOSUM TEACHER! he is super funny, and he teaches in a different, relaxed kind of way. which is how it should be!
Mr van loves his job and it shows. He is an amazing musician and a very patient teacher. I will never forget him.
Probably THE best teacher I've ever had, very knowledgeable and passionate about the subject. He opened so many doors for me in music and I am forever thankful.
He's cool, but he has so many weird sayings, Kackinfrats? Kaffufles? Bob's your uncle?
He has interesting sayings...your bench-pressing a buick (sp?)
BEST HIGH SCHOOL TEACHER, VERY INFLUENTIAL IN MY LIFE - WILL NEVER FORGET HIM!!!
