He gets angry a lot
He is without a doubt one of the greatest music teachers I have ever known. He always works extremely hard and selflessly to improve the bands programs at scotch, and I don't know anyone else that devotes so much time and effort to the bands he works with, especially since he has his own family to worry about as well. He has done so much great work at scotch, and manages to get a great sounding band, even if the individual players aren't of an amazing standard. Love him!
After two years of lessons with Mr. Schmidli I quit music because I hated it. I used to really enjoy it.
If your son is learning from him I strongly suggest you try to change teachers as this man will ruin your child's musical enjoyment for life. Complete sadistic moron.
I think he is fantastic and if anyone is stupid enough to think that he is cynical sarcastic and rude then they are not only rude themselfs but they do not deserve to be tought by him
