He IS the esa Music department and was the best conductor and musician the school ever had. Hilarious too! Gotta love the holod/oswald symphony rehearsals.
Made me realize that music is not what I want to do with my life. ESA in general sucked, but I'll always remember Oswald, funny, awesome guy, but sometimes, really rude
This guy threw pencils, pens, anything he could at students when I attended his music classes. Funny but weird.ESA sucked anyway.
he is fine as long as you never do anything that he dislikes or he becomes vindictive, i disagreed with something he said once and he did everything in his power to get me kicked out of the school
he's great but he can be kind of intimidating sometimes =S
I graduated in 2004 as a music major. I had him from grade 9-OAC and absolutely loved his class. He had high expectations but knew what you were capable of. Great teacher!!!
Very nice teacher and funny... but some of his jokes are.... very hurtful
dont like him much. picks favorites. very mean. funny but jokes can be very offending. has a passion for music tho. tough marker. better stay on his good side. needs to chill.
Mr. Oswald is the best teacher, and my favorite. You just have to be a good studient, and respect him, and then he will respect you!
He is the best, he a wonderful musician, and great teacher. Hes hard, and has his favorites which isnt fair, but hes still a good guy, and his jokes are great!
good conductor/the best at esa...but lay off on the personal jokes
Mr. Suspenders!!! During the days of big bird - you pulled us through.....good man!
strange, strange man. fun class, though. has an interesting perspecitve on life..
The best conductor the school has now--actually has a beat pattern. Makes fun of everyone, which really only makes things more fun.
I think you've ruined more prospective musicians than you've helped make!
The older u get, the nicer he gets. Jokes eventually become real jokes instead of being just plain mean. Overall a pretty okay guy. Marks fairly I think...
Why are you being so nice about this jerk? He stuck a pencil thru his hand and calls people mean names..is that even allowed?
major, chromatic, sequence of thirds, intervals, miner melodic, minor harmonic. all worth it. wonderful teacher!
Mr. Oswald is a real character. Although his analogies can be perplexing, he understands how to perform and taches us how to be performers, not just musicians.
Is sooo funny and great and actually nice ! is kind of a hard marker but really knows what you are capable of...grrr 4key cycles
probably one of my favorite teachers at ESA, passionate about what he does and overly qualified, (great guy to) what more can I say
He is a fun teacher, a bit moody sometimes, and can blabber on about nothing.
He's really funny, but can be odd, unclear, and a really hard marker. If he likes you you'll be okay though.
A tough teacher...demands a lot but pushes students to do their best and knows what they are capable of.
He may be a hard marker but his high expectations brings the most out of us.
Ne1 notice he's nicer 2 us in gr.11, than he was 2us in gr.9&10? Oh well, ya
He's a cool guy, but difficult to know. He also sets high expectations.
