The best teacher I have ever had at BA. Put more time into each pupil than any other teacher, and made music my hands-down favourite subject. Many late nights helping us all finish coursework. Legend!
such a good teacher really dead on and good craic always listens to you and answers your questions - is really good in orchestra and windband too and keeps everyone going and the whole thing lighthearted and fun
(past pupil) Man was a legend and a fantastic teacher. Tried his best for me and worked tirelessly to ensure we all acheived our potential. To say he finished work at 5pm would be incorrect. Accommodated each person with their individual (and some times unorthadox) instruments superbly. Ballymena Academy owes much to Paul McQueen (and the rest of the music department) for it's gleaming image- something I believe the academy forgets from time to time in such a rugby and sports dominated environment...Which
Gud teacher. tho a bit miffed @ him cuz he said that traditional music was of a lower standard than classical and its so not trad. takes more skill (no offence 2 u classical guys) but thats my opinion and u cant change it. he also said that a classical plaer can go play trad. any day and not vice versa but i think that its the other way round. And if any1 on da skl council is readin this cud u suggest a traditional music grop 4 skl? I wud so join that.....
I messed up in my music exam and he still gave me a relly good mark
Awesome teacher very passionate bout the subject, gr8 craic easily 1 of da skl's best teachers.
Fabulous and really dedicated teacher. Many happy memories of the music suite and especially choir rehearsals! A real legend!
Hard to beat a good choir rehearsal with Mr McQ and Sylvia... aye!!!
helpful and enthusiastic about his subject, although i think he tries to show off sometimes
a great teacher. one day he had his bluetooth on we kept trying to send him stuff haha!
He's a brilliant teacher, who's a hell of an interesting person aswell!I've learnt alot about life from this man, not just music. A great role model!
i think he' great. and i love that he has favourites. hahaha.
great teacher, enthusiastic, involved in lots of music groups (which might i add teachers don't get paid much for), really kind and listens. Great music teacher!!
this is one wicked class teach... (he teaches you what note the bad finger makes on the recorder) wicked class man
Arranged a trip to Austria many moons ago. Dont know many teachers that would take on that level of responsibility with 50+ pupils. Great man. Good memories.
loves his music and canoeing! has taught me in both and he is fantastically encouraging and helpful!
Cool,funny and kind. Good crack. one of the best teachers.
Knows everything there is to know but definitely has his favourites.
