Very nice, caring and wants you to succeed.
As a musician, he could be the greatest treasure in this era but as a teacher, he is little better than useless. During his classes which are 74 minutes long, the band plays for about 40 minutes and he gives out a high B or a low A to everyone regardless of the student's effort, participation, or knowledge. On the other hand, if you ever need help with your instrument or you just want to discuss music, Mr. Kay is a joy to speak with. However, keep in mind that he is old and cannot remember much.
Very into music and puts a lot of energy and time into everything related to music and his students. you will love him if you love music!
What an amazing music teacher! I was so fortunate to have mr Kay as a teacher. If you want to continue with music, trust me, listen to the lectures! 98 percent of that comes in handy for me as a musician and a teacher, and I didn't listen as much as I should have! Take an interest in music, reflect the enthusiasm you observe and you will be better off for it.
Len is a true teacher and he loves what he does you can tell
He's a good guy and a good teacher, but he talks WAY too much. In the end, four-fifths of our time wzs he talking about things that are totally different from music. However, he does care about you as an idividtual and he WILL actually get you to improve for your instrument.
mr kay is ok of a teacher. he talks way to much and says to many methaphores and he reapeats them 20 times. he can be nice but often insultes our whole classes intelliegence. He likes to tell us too many stories that are so random and about himself.
Excellent teacher! When i won McRobert's Idol he helped me all the way through even though he wasn;t a voice teacher. really cares about music and his students!
Very good musician, but lacks understanding. Also, we spent numerous classes not playing music at all- actually, not learning anything remotely connected to music at all.
He is passionate about his music and this passion extends beyond himself.He is truly willing to help and share this love and passion for music to kids/people he did not even personally know or met. Just listen to him, carefully listen, you are missing a lot if you don't.
all he does is talk about useless things, and he focuses on ONE person for 30 minutes +. also, what's the point in the doing in the B flat scale for 70 minutes? oh my god. i hate this class.
GREAT TEACHER, made some of my best memories during my time at mcrobs!!!(: the long talks are sometimes pointless but still really fun classes. YSY
Very passionate about teaching music he may once in a while go on about something completely off topic but has inspired many many students in his classes!
Mr. Kay is an inspirational teacher who changed many lives, but scars others' unintentionally. A great trumpet player and a great conductor, though sometimes he'll take the whole class time talking about something and that was boring. I didn't like him very much and whenever you didn't come to a concert he would outright get pissed at you...I quit Band 9 because of this.
You are one inspirational teacher ever. The long talks are sort-of boring, but really mean a lot, makes me learn more about social responsibility. I love your passion for music. See you in Gr. 10 Band!
Coolest teacher ever!!! Band is my favourite class =)
Mr. Kay is so passionate about music it's difficult not to feel that his attitude is infectious. Although his talks are long, they are usually quite animated and intriguing as they draw from a wealth of experience. He encourages his students to understand music ever so much, It's quite miraculous the amount of energy he does everything so spiritedly, almost as if he were powered by music itself.
Mr. kay you in courage us so much and convinced me to stay in guitar class we i almost folded it. Guitar is challanging but i find it very hard when u only tell us but not but any notes on the board. Students like me cannot learn that way not how i function.
He's so passionate about music, and he really wants us to be aswell. He's a fun guy with lots of energy. He puts all his work and time into our music program, only drawback is he gets way off topic
Great musician and probably a great guy, but he talks too much and hes always late for class! When I had him for strings we missed a few whole classes cause he took forever to come
Passionate about music. Some don't realize and take him for granted. Determination to help others find the same love for music. Some believe he too often goes off on a tangent.
One time at an early morning concert band practise he talked about Amish quilting. He's fun and dedicated, though I wish he did things more efficiently.
he is a good teacher but way way too much talking...
Very passionate teacher, maybe a bit too much so. Overall a great musician and teacher.
Mr Kay is the BEST teacher i've ever had! Anybody who says otherwise is either lazy or just plain doesn't care about education. He's taught me soo much!!
maybe a little too passionate about music. face gets too red after conducting. but he works so hard to get the best results in music classes.
may talk a fair bit but he knows what he's doing so there isn't much of a conflict if you asked me. He's good and knows what to expect from his students
Great Guy. Excellent Teacher. Wonderful knowledge of his music. Does talk alot, but always has interesting things to say.
Long winded...but usually on a good topic. Very enthusiastic about his stuff... Learned lots from him! (Why else am I taking music @ Kwantlen?)
Mr. Kay is more than a music teacher, the guy is a philosopher. He's one of the best High School teachers I ever had.
He can be an ear-full at times, but he's a good guy.
Interesting person but talks too much. GREAT TIE COLLECTION!!!
Cool but puts way too much importance on social responisbility and USSR
I like it how you teach everyone all the main scales that are common
Mr.Kay is a cool teacher but you have to adimit he talks to much!!:S
