Dear Mr Placewicz,
You are the most awesome music genius and a teacher I respected the most ever!
Your knowledge on all kinds of music has inspired us so much. You really taught us skills and techniques so well which helped us learnt so well and really understand the meaning of playing music. I enjoyed your classes, your school band, your annual Christmas performance so much and you humors as well. It's a lost that you retired.Wish you good health. love you.

God bless you Mr. George Placewicz. You have completely inspired me to become a music and language teacher. Thank you for not charging me a single dollar to going out of your way to teach me the flute. I am so proud, so proud of St. Robert Catholic High School that they now have a orchestra and string band from what I hear from St. Robert Catholic High School alumni. I hope and pray you and Mrs. Placewicz have good health and know Jesus loves you.
CLEARLY displays such musical talent and honestly overqualified for his job....
gotta respect this guy.. been teaching since robs opened, manages 5 clubs, travels internationally with the kids, his bands wins several awards annually
LOT better than molnar...at least he tries to teach though can be moody at times. Memorize all tests and play correctly and u'll do awesome
you cannot go wrong with this guy :) funny, funny and a couple hundred dozen times awesomer than molnar :)
Very stubborn in terms of her teaching methods. Not understanding at all. Does not take student's view into consideration.
Likes students from St. Mikes & that's about it. Picks his favorites. Very good teacher in theory. Better than Molnar :) Funny. Don't forget your instrument, or you're screwed. Do your hmk!
He was a great music teacher! Had him a couple of times in gr. 9 music and he had a good sense of humour!
He never has anything positive to say. I am always quiet in class, and I always try by best but he always says 'i expected better.' hate the guy, sorry =S
love his classs.....makes fun of you al the time...but its funny so what ever...love music with him
very dedicated is funny but rude and blunt, has high expectations and is a hard marker
awesome teacher much better than molnar. teaches and is funny at same time
He is an AWESOME teacher!! music taught by him just lightens up my day. After every music class, im always in a good mood! He's funny,straightforward,encouraging and gives us challenges! I actually played alot better than I did in elementary school!
Most dedicated teacher I have come accross. He makes silly jokes and is a very sweet man. He always encourages a challenge and is very into the music! If you are a good player who practises, he will make it worth while with his smile hah!
he actually TEACHES us. Unlike molnar, he tells you when to play and when not. great teacher.. i love his type of songs.. better than molnars.
I have him again! He's alright, funny at times, and extremely knoledgeable. However, he's really scary during tests and too staright forward Ex. "You played horrible...;next!" u gotta love his accent
Our music was fun at times and boring at others. But he was well experienced and worked well with (most) students.
I loved gr 10 music with him, it was basically a course to bump up your average and lighten up the day!
he can be funny...but he talks to much. and at least hes better than molnar!!!!
Very nice teacher but expects a lot. He knows how to help every instrument becaue he plays everything(almost). I had him in grade 12 and it was my fav class.
the only music teacher u'll want, very nice, mildly funny, high expectations but will make you want to strive to play better!
go sir!!cool teacher, tho takes too long to explain things.. ppl get bored u know.. but other than that..You rock sir
Not enough patience for a music teacher. Old school and does not understand young people with their own minds and ideals.
great music teacher...can play every single instrument...so talented...has a good personality and temper...had fun in his class...!!
OMG, I don't understand how people don't like him! He's nice! Maybe if you shut up in class he wouldn't have to yell at you!
very tough and expects a lot, and he thinks he's funny. But he can play almost every instrument, except strings.
One of my fave teachers!! I loved music & stuck with it because of him. High expectations, but got me where I am at now! Thanks sir!
it would be nice to do other activites other than band..
IS THERE ANY INSTRUMENT HE CANNOT PLAY?!?!?!!??!?!?!?!?.. AND WELL
I'm kicking you out of band because of your extra activities..you know theatre practice, sports, p/t job? Why????
I don't know why he's still working. He is extremely moody. He marks based on NOT UR TALENTS but how quiet u remain in class. The man's gettin old.
he made me love music.. just dont miss and band practices :D
Overall a great teacher, but talks WAY to much!! Also, he have no sense of time.
Makes you love playing your instrument even if its the trumpet!!!
Great teacher and musician, unlike Molnar! Hope I have him again.
very good teacher, just don't miss a choir or band practice, and u'll b fine =)
