Great teacher, he always makes sure that everyone is playing their instruments properly. He makes jokes and also talks about the history behind the many pieces we play. I came to his intermediate strings class with no double bass experience and now i would say i play very well. Overall, a great teacher, the best music teacher i have ever had.

He is an okay music teacher. He can be unproductive sometimes, and he gives out totally easy tests from Etudes. Despite all that, he is pretty fun.

Mr.Hill taught me in band after Mr.Hurst left and I really really really really liked him. He was really chilled with us however he usually strays off topic and rarely get things done on time. Also if you play piano, he will be on to you (in a good way). He will like to talk to you and make jokes, so LEARN PIANO!!!! His class is super easy to make an A. Like you just cannot fail his class.

Mr Hill is the besttttttt. Strings is super fun with him. He taught me a lot about the violin, I had a horrible strings teacher in elementary, but hes been fixing all my mistakes. The only thing I don't like is that he likes people who play piano.

He is very smart but does not know how to teach. Our class is always talking and we neevr get anything done. It's almost the end of the year and we haven't done one project and there are still so many things in the curriculum that our class hasn't done. The class is out of control and he has no control over what goes on. I don't learn anything.
