I am dating myself by about ten years but when I had Mr.van der Bank he was a fantastic teacher who always made time to help his students if they were stuck. We had multiple bands on the go and I was in three of them. I don't appreciate people who comment on a teacher's easiness as the point of teaching is not to be easy but to be fair other wise school is a free ride. Mr. v's expectations were high but that always challenged me to do more.
mr. van der Bank is a very strict teach!! he likes to talk about himself and it is easy to get him off topic!! he hardly lets us play are instruments and its music class!!
Kay, well he's definitely one of my favourite people in the world. He makes music amazing and he can ALWAYS make my day even if it's going really bad. :D GREATEST teacher award goes toooo: Mr.vdB!
SO cool! He makes jokes about everything and you never fel on edge. His class is the best of the day!
He's definetly the best teacher. Don't know what option to take? Take music! Brandon Christie
I don't get his jokes... are they bad or am I slow? I think they're baadd..
Deserves more respect than he gets. Amazing teacher, friend and is there when you need him. Thanks for 4 great yeras, I learned a lot. Makes music great, and keeps you laughing. Flute players, unite!
ppl say they don't like him, but the alternative is much worse. we need him back!

Mr. van der Bank is one of my favorite teachers. I have had him since grade 9 and he has always made himself available for help at any time.
Lame jokes, good teacher, he just doesnt appreciate a good guitarist/bassist
