Aug 28, 2010 He is okay. Really, no need to embarrass students so unnecessarily during practice. I can play all my pieces with relative ease at home, then when I get to band, I can't even play a single note right if he is putting me under pressure. Flag Rating

May 16, 2010 Mr Coy is a good teacher who understands that as students we require a fair bit of humour to break the monotony of boring teachers. He does this really well, though he can still be pretty scary sometimes... :) Flag Rating

Mar 23, 2010 Sometimes Mr Coy scares me-he's good when you talk to him but if you really stuff up he can make fun of you with his jokes. But anyway he's really good at what he does, expects a lot from us and has high standards. Sat mornings are great-we get through a lot and it's never boring!. Flag Rating

Jul 21, 2007 Mr Coy is the quintesssence of perfection when it comes to teaching classical trombone. His Jazz skills, whilst there, are of a lesser degree than his classical. As a conductor he is quite good, although I would say both he and Ms Christmass would have benefitted from attending Steven Williams' presentation at ABODA this year. He is intelligent, interesting, funny and articulate and, overall, deserves a high rating. Flag Rating

Apr 06, 2007 Should teach the orchestra how to be psychologically and physically prepared for performance glitches (namely to be alert but not alarmed if the harpsichordist loses his spot and we need to restart!) Flag Rating

Dec 29, 2006 Just waves his arms around. Is very inconcise and unclear in passages which require emotional input from the conductor, clear contrast of mood, and solid timing. Gunther Frey does all of this, and has better interpretations. Flag Rating

Nov 29, 2006 Very quirky guy with a twisted sense of humor, though possess very good aural skills and a switched on ear; CLEARLY he has brilliant musicianship. Always walks with a spring in his step, though that Achilles tendon injury... Flag Rating

Nov 05, 2006 Great. As a trombone student of him I am probably one of the five or six students in school who can sum him up as a teacher. And the Single word is BRILLIANT!!! Flag Rating

Oct 26, 2006 Told us he had a girlfriend who played the cello, and he decided to take up lessons so he could use it- and he ended up saying to her that he loved the cello more than her. What more can you say? Flag Rating
