Filion is the person who has influenced my developpement as an artist and person the most throughout my teenage years. He is very strict in group settings (classroom) and doesn’t tolerate anything less than your 100% which can be very draining. But if you can tough through the first 2 years (he’s a lot tougher on the 9-10s), you really learn to appreciate everything he’s taught you. Be it music or life lessons, I truly feel that I’ve learned a lot and grown as a person. :)
I believe that Mr. Fillion can be a really great and helpful teacher, but personally I did not have the best overall experience with him. I somewhat agree that he does everything that he does to help you, but I unfortunately am not willing to drop everything for choir. If you are willing to do what it takes (and that a vocal career is your goal for the future), then he should be a great teacher for you. He seems nice, but it just frustrated me that I wasn't making any noticeable progress.
Robert is one of the strangest teachers I have ever had the chance to meet.
He will have you hate him. But you will know that everything he says is furthuring your education and teaching you more than just vocal/choir things. If you stick with him you will have amazing experiences, such as singing at a broadway show at the NAC, or traveling the world, while singing. He will make you work. When you graduate, you will thank him for it. He is a FANTASTIC teacher. I could not recommend him more.
He is an amazing teacher. He is a strict teacher so you will have to work hard but you will be rewarded for your efforts by all the knowledge you will acquire.
A lot of people mention that M.Filion is really funny and that he's a great musician, but there's something that people forget to mention. I personnally found that he was the best teacher I ever had b
Tough teacher, blunt but an excellent choir director and funny. I understand why so many people hated it but I loved him!
Excellent teacher, although he could stand to provide better support to alumni who ask for his help/opinion.
Really tough teacher but his choirs and vocal ensembles are a representation of his teaching ability (IE:AMAZING).
