disciplined, inspirational and a teacher in the best sense of the word. A man with passion for his craft who inspires one to care about what one was doing, both in music and in life. Impossible to find someone who card about everything as he did. Make sure to always go to class if you sign up for his session though - he does not take any BS for people skipping class
He is the only teacher i remember from magee high school. This man is best at what he does. I really miss mr.trepp .
THE most amazing choir teacher i've ever had!!!!! John Trepp IS THE BEST. He was very strict, but it was worth it. he taught u how to sing amazingly well, and now.... any choir i join - is never good
I was in grad class 1993. He was an inspiration in music and in life. He seemed to be hard on students, but he was one of the best teachers I had. Thank you, John. You changed my life.
he is a musical genius but as a highschool mentor that does not equal a lot
great mentor even if you arent into choral studies. I think the best alround teacher/person you can meet.
I love him :D The best thing that occured to me in highschool is meetin this man. If academic classes help u in gaining success in the future, his class helps u to success as a human being
Unquestionably one of the most committed eduactors I have had the pleasure of working with. He pushes his students and pushes them hard. Those who thrive on being given the opportunity to become their best love and respect him. He is retiring this coming year and music education in Vancouver, in BC, in Canada will sorely miss him. I rate his 'easiiness' as a 1 because HE MAKES YOU WORK!!! And I thank him for that.
I am from a choir that John works with in Saskatchewan (wahooo SCCHS!!) John is the most inspirational and wonderful man and choral director I have ever had the opportunity to meet or work with. Everything he does inspires you to do better. Whether it be his passion for his students, or his desire to share music with the world, John is a man that has touched multitudes of hearts, all over the world.
He's not easy, but the work isn't easy to begin with. He's as helpful and clear as you let him be. Best of all, his humility is so inspiring, given his clear expertise with his craft.
There's really nothing I can say that others haven't said. I'm just glad I had a chance to work with him.

I really like him. I asked him after the people were picked if I could try out and he said YES! And I dont know him at all. I hear really good things about him!
An utterly incredible teacher. He can come to a group across the country, treat them as his own students, and connect, and teach infinite improvement in minimal time.
he is a cool guy...makes you work hard probably because he puts you on the spot sometimes and makes you run only on adrenaline
where to begin. i'm pleased to see so many positive reviews of trepp, cuz a lot of the times he goes unappreciated. he will make you work, but the results are amazing. trepp is simply the best teacher you could possibly get for music these days.
Mr. Trepp is the greatest choir teacher.. period. there's no question about it. i'm going to miss him very much...he's like a my grandfather.. =D
He's the greatest teacher in Magee. You can learn a lot other than music from him XD
He's a great music teacher. Very inspiring. By making everyone afraid, it motivates the students to practice and work harder... Ah! The foundation of teaching!
he roks. i like it when he insults other ppl his face turns red :D
One of the greatest teacher I've met~ Great person to talk to and we are all gonna miss him when he leaves T_T
I believe Magee is lucky to have such a fantastic teacher. His strong dedication and unbelievable vision helps create award winning choirs every year.
Believe it or not, I graduated in 1987, and 'His Treppitude' was my choir teacher. To this date is one of the most influencial people in my life. Be happy
Very good teacher - Big ol' teddy bear under that screaming, yelling, student failing outside =P... Good Jokes; One of the top music teachers in the world.
he's obviously a bit scary but he's really just a lot like a big teddy bear!! totally inspiring...why do you all fret about marks so much?? its MUSIC!!!
Best teacher ever! Is coming along nicely with the new strings program at Magee.
Current students may not get why he's so passionate about music yet, but when you leave Magee, you will realize that he has touched your lives like no one else.
Freakin horrid person, not a bad teacher...but Haas is 10X better...
too into music!! face turns red when conducts, sometimes funny
Great teacher with lots of experience. We are so lucky to have him at Magee.
he's not a good band teacher BUT HE'S A TERRIFIC CHOIR TEACHER
UBC TOO.. he isn't that bad.. became a lot better in my year 02 (grad year)
course is fair, not an easy mark, big circles have purpose, am music student
