Mr duncan isn't perfect. Yes he sometimes expects more than you can give in the moment, yes does have favourites, yes sometimes he's a little unmeaningfully insensitive but none of those don't have a solution. You can practice hard and listen to what he has to say and you'll improve. You can get involved and not be afraid to talk to him, then favourite or not he'll like you. You can let him know anything, and he'll take time to talk and teach you accordingly. He's absolutely dedicated too.
He's cool but needs to focus more on the beginners.
Amazing teacher. He knows so much about music, and can play pretty much any instrument. If music is your passion, he is definitely the best teacher you will get on your musical journey. He will spend endless time with you after hours to help you out. Unfortunately he plays favourites and talks a fair amount but overall he's amazing.
Pretty good teacher, he's just a really bad scatter brain. He tries to take on way too much at once and tends to get moody at others when he digs himself into a hole. He can be a bit self-centred, but other than that he's a pretty good teacher. Band with him is pretty fun.
Quite possibly the nicest teacher on Earth. He gives really easy marks, and is really easy to get along with.
My fave teacher at woodroffe, really chill and tries so hard for every student, no matter how bad they are. If you show up, you will get a pretty good mark. Awesome for band as well, picks great songs and let's us have an opinion.
Mr. Duncan directs the musical, conducts the pit band for the musical, as well as teaching his classes, AND directing the band! He takes on so much and he truly loves and cares about his students :)
I randomly picked music as one my classes years ago in my first year at Woody.. I know i must have drove him crazy but he was always supportive and encouraging. I had always loved music but he taught
Great musician and obviously loves music. Throws his being into music, band, and his students. Talks WAY too much. Gets TOO emotional. Needs to stop GUILTING people into doing things they cannot (BT!)
he's one of the best teachers i have ever had in my life. he doesnt do boring things in his classes, hes fun but still gets us to do the work we need to
an amazing teacher, knows his music well. but is very very uptight, disorganized, and quite a prude. if u don't like music ure handicapped, and he plays favourites too much. no favourite, no pass
He helped me alot. He made my first year at woodroffe alot of fun!
Mr.Duncan is so cool. He is like a best friend to me and I'm only in grade 9. Thanks mr. D!
Phenomenal teacher. Very dedicated. Thanks for everything.
he's really good at everything he teaches... he makes the musicals so much fun
Without Mr. Duncan, Woodroffe would not be anywhere near where it is today! Thank You!
A really dedicated and smart person, but he plays favourites, and can inadvertently make people feel bad.
Actually, I don't have him until next semester. But he's not funny to me in Band.
I don't like the guy. I haven't been in his class, but I've had to deal with him on enough occassions to dislike him.
It's amazing what this man does every year! Thank you for teaching me music, because I'd be lost without it! AWESOME TEACHER!
Although your a brilliant musician, I always felt singled out when it came to attending your class. I really felt I was always made the joke of the class.
