He is disrespectful of students. He only wants students in his class if they are pursuing music full time after graduation and if they are already take private lessons outside of school. Taking music in high school should be about anyone and everyone having the opportunity to learn and love music. He only takes "certain" students to music competitions to improve his score. He is disrepectful. The majority of good hardworking talented students drop his class. He discourages. So disappointed!!!!!
The best teacher. Although he won't hesitate to roast you if you don't practice. Sometimes will rant on a topic. Overall nice. This isn't the course for you if you want to cruise by.
really funny, rants a lot though. Great teacher
Nothing to say but he is the best
Best strings teacher ever! Lengthy rants but he does know what he's talking about when it comes to music and always helps you do the absolute best you can. Possibly most devoted teacher I've ever had the pleasure to meet. His groups always do extremely well. I can understand why some might hate him, but I think he is a superb teacher.
Amazing Strings teacher. He talks a bit too much each class but otherwise when we start playing he is an excellent teacher very knowledgeable and teaches very well. Always thinks that there is always room for improvement.
He actually really does know what he's talking about. It just takes him a while to get to the point.
Amazing teacher, all he wants is student success. I was lucky enough to have him for homeroom in grade 9 and he made the transition into high school very easy. One of a kind!
Heavy Romanian accent. Pretty good strings teacher, though I preferred Mr. Worden. Goes on a RIDICULOUS!!!! amount of random and loosely related rants that take many minutes and are HILARIOUS!
"let your bow flying" haha. Anyone have any other memorable quotes?
you either love him or hate him. if u h8, get out of his class the rest of us don't want u there. work hard, try hard, don't talk,u'll do good. hilarious guy <3
If you are an active participant, or work hard in his class, he will mark you higher.
Class is just...epic. There are no other words. He's got a strange sense on humour and if you can get used to it you will LOVE class.
I hate him. He can't explain anything and gets off topics...a lot. He gets on your nerves too
loves what he's doing, definitely, makes you want to love strings even if you hated it before soooo funny, really cool, and overall awesome!
Passionate about what he teaches, which is more than you can say for 90% of the staff at MCI. Lousy disciplinarian; the quality of class depends solely on the self-restraint of students.
REALLY GOOD TEACHER!!!!! He makes us practice and work hard. Sooo funny
he stoica is so cool, except when at rehearsals he goes on about something like the slackers who never come, but yea, hes cool and doesnt really play favourites like *cough* my old strings teacher did
good teacher but when he tells stories i have no idea what he is saying
LOVE him, one of the best music teachers I've ever had! He's hilarious and always willing to help his students.
best strings teacher ever!!!!!!! really helpful and funny!!!
sooo funny. love his stories. awsome violinist. best teacher ever. made strings a class to look forward too.
STOOIIICCAAA!!! best teacher of all time..such a funny guy, even if you cna't understand him, he just makes class a riot, so passionate about his work,krazy violinist! nice stories
One of the best people and teachers on will ever find
He is a great teacher. He is not like anyone else. I respect him and he resepected me. He tried to understand his students. I really want to thank him for what he has done for me.
he is so awsome, all u have to do is redo test and hand in ur pratice sheets and u can get an easy 100%, bam not a problem, wiked stories, funny guy, will pick favourtie classes and if ur in one u got it made
one of the coolest, funny stories, amazing talent, weird sense of humour; all good
must redo tests and come to practices..thats pretty much all it takes to stay on his good side.
Stoicster!! He's pretty cool, but gets extremely mad if you don't go to his rehersals, and you have to redo tests a lot to get good marks.
Funny little man- It seemed like he was avoiding me for months after he found out I wasn't taking Grade 10 strings, but still good.
funny little man! loved his gypsie stories. very good violinist.
Very hard to reason with sometimes, but i just wish students would not abuse his good will...serious students get burned cuz of u guys!
Definatly my fav. teacher. He knows so much about music, and he's really good at teaching it. He's also really hilarious and fun to talk to.
Stoica is the coolest teacher! His incoherent stories are truly hilarious, he's a wicked violinist, and he gives good marks!
Stoicmeister, hmmm good and bad... If he hates you (he hates me) then your year won't be fun, but he is very passionate. He is pretty evil tho
Super nice guy. A great musician. Loved his Braveheart violin solo. That kilt!
Very friendly but the breath can sometimes be over-powering
Mr Stoica is so funny, but sometimes he has coffee breath
