Lowell couldn't conduct electricity, let alone a musical ensemble.

Doc turns a conversation about sandwiches into a history lesson. It's what he knows and loves. He wants to share all he can with whoever will listen. Freshman seminars are full of people who wanted to be in a different class. He can't force you to be interested in his subject, but he can try his best to teach all he can. "It's a bird. It's a plane. It's a Mozart!"

Approachable. Demanding. Helpful. Encouraging. Great guy. Sometimes wondered where he was going in class- but he got us there in the end.

Nice, but wanted us all to understand all of the innerworking of music theory (it wasn't all music majors on this trip). Had absolutely no understanding for a day late paper (even when we were mailing out papers back). The course description tricked me. If all you want is art and music theory, this is your course. Otherwise, stay away!!!

Very nice man, but can't keep his**** together. Gives random busy with no real clarity as to what you are supposed to do. DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS.

to previous post - if you thought the spring concert was easy for a college level symphony, you have no idea what difficult music is. Doc's idea of tasteful music is play as quietly as possible. However, very nice and very dedicated.

Disagree completely with the previous poster. Very energetic and devoted prof. The spring concert was extrememly challenging, but I felt very prepared for it, thanks to Doc!

Hepler is a nice guy, but hes not a good director. Terrible and really easy music selection. Partly to blame for the stagnant and boring music program at allegheny. Great guy, mediocre musician

Doesn't seem to understand the concept of the FS or the subject he said he was going to teach. It's turned into a glorified music history class. Being forced to sit in his class for 75 minutes makes me start to go insane

Had him several years ago. Best teacher and best influence I've ever had. Truly one of a kind.
