He doesn't teach so much as tell stories, mainly about the military but also about his daughters and other moderately disturbing stuff. But you should definitely take music all the way through to grade 12 for every reason. By the way, call him Birki

Mr. B is by far my favourite teacher. He cares so much about each of his students and goes out of his way to make sure everyone had a great time in his music class. He's fantastic, please consider sticking through Mrs Norton and the new grade 10 teacher to have a chance to be taught by him.

A lot of people like him..I stopped taking music because -We wasted so much time in class and he was always late -He's condescending, but not as smart as he thinks -Demotivational posters aren't funny

He picks favorites. He makes bad jokes involving his daughter. He teaches music well, though. I only wish he didn't have such a plastic personality.
