Mr Rogers is a nice guy but an average teacher. Having him for Year 12 Contemporary Music was fairly average as he spent most of the time playing songs on the piano, and failed to cover the course, instead getting the class to make powerpoints and teach each other. He is okay for younger years but if you have him for ATAR you have to do a lot by yourself.
Amazing teacher, pretty lax, and has empathy. Awesome having him (but he's on long service leave and we get miss Powell hahaha fun.)
If you've seen blade runner you will understand my fear of mr roger poking his head into various classes all the time...
The most amazingly wonderful music teacher, seriously, he is great! He gets all the theory down and engages with us really well. The only downside is when those kids (you know the ones) try to take advantage of him by talking in class. If you have Mr Rogers, rejoice.
BEST TEACHER EVER!!! always has fun and could pass as a drama teacher
Mr Rogers is very fun and teaches music in a way that i've personally only seen in one other music teacher in my primary school... He makes it engaging and something fun rather than a boring subject.
Mr rogers is cool but we never actually do any work which is amazing
Always tells jokes and makes class very fun
Amazing teacher, really lovable. My favourite teacher at mod so far :), always so happy and upbeat.
Fun, relatable, talented, funny, smart, loveable man
I find it interesting that years ago he chose to install the MAC computer system over windows for the music lab...who knew that that was probably the best choice ever as MAC is the best way to do music on the computer....smart choice Mr Rogers!
The best music teacher at mod. He is the only one there with any grasp of Jazz or contemporary music. He does however enjoy musicals a bit too much.
An excellent and fun teacher, and most importantly, someone who I can really relate to. He has an excellent knowledge of music theory, but his interest in jazz and contemporary music really sets him apart from other music teachers. He is the master of any keyboard, incorporating fun piano improvs into every lesson he gives... and even outside of lessons! Perth Mod simply wouldn't be Perth Mod without the faint sound of Mr Rogers' accordion at lunchtimes. By far one of the best teachers I've ever had.
best teacher ever and what the hell is wrong with apple macs?
He is a great person, funny and caring, but needs to work on his teaching methods. Sometimes it is hard to understand him. Also, his constant jokes makes him lose control of the class (for a short time) a lot, which becomes irritating.
despite of what i rated him i have a bad impression on him... he embarrassed me in music today 'cos i didnt attend choir for like a term (true i slacked off BUT some have done worse). Begrudging and unamicable teacher from my experience.
Very supportive of musicians no matter what genre or musical abilty they are into. Very understanding and easy to talk to. Also a VERY talented musician who can improv possibly anything and everything on the keys. Basically, he's the MAN of the music department as far as I'm concerned.
Awsome person and personality!!! He's soooooooo happy all the time and so fun to be around...although, sometimes mad!!!
What od I say about Michael. He's quite good I think. But then again he is also moderately psychotic and a Mac fan. I would have to say, with that mixed review, he is a pretty good teacher. He is quite intellignet, articulate (discounting the odd propensity to say C'mon Guys) and can cope with a class. He also really enjoys music, especially jazz oriented stuff. I'm not sure if he gets on terribly well at all times with all the other music staff, he seems a bit different - a bit more modern
Mr Rogers, apparently, once threw a chair at a student in anger over his questioning of his teaching skills, and as a result Mr Rogers had to attend anger management classes. You can see now whenever he gets worked up over student behavior or lack of discipline, that his vein pops out and he grits his teeth; one gets the feeling he is going through a set of anger-control procedures which he has practiced again and again. Though he still has screaming fits nonetheless.
Macs are awesome, and so is Mr Rogers! I happen to like Latin music and it's better than classical. Can go a bit psycho sometimes, but you learn stuff, so it's all good.
Mr Rogers is the best Music teacher at Mod! He makes music so fun and u learn things too! Good on u.
IF THERE'S ONE THING HE HATES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ... It's when a students prevents other students from learning.
Mr. Rogers has the craziest sense of humor. What was with the earring on mufti day?!?!
he can handle josh morgan.... my point exactlly one cool guy who can teach not that we are actuall learning much exept for vollyball but WHO CARES!!!
fantastic guy he makes it really fun and exiting which is hard. But be warned he breas out in song sometimes!!over all fantastic funny, cool, great teacher.
really nice guy, i've never actually been in his class but i have him for choral and music lit. funny and random. i remember when he bribed us with mentos at the junior concerts
A bit too groovy for my liking. A strong knowledge-base in the field of jazz and blues, Mr Rogers struggles to find an interest in the classical period; although stressing that this isn't the case.
One of the best teachers i had in school. Easy going guy who is hilarious and makes music really enjoyable by taking a different approach. learn to appreciate what you have while you have it...
