Students at Feagin Mill Middle School in Warner Robins say band teacher Lloyd McDonald is dedicated to music. McDonald has been teaching band for thirteen years. Tuesday, he won 13 WMAZ's 'My Teacher is Tops' Award.
McDonald says he works hard to help students improve.
"It's just so much fun to see a kid start from scratch, can't play a note, to the end of the year, they're just playing fantastic," McDonald said.
Siblings Brandon Fortson, eighth grade, and Stephanie Fortson, sixth grade, of Warner Robins, nominated McDonald for the award.
"I've enjoyed learning how to play different instruments, learning how to become a musician, and basically learning all I can about music," Brandon Fortson said.
"It helps like understand stuff better by learning music and learning different notes," Stephanie Fortson said.
Brandon Fortson says McDonald teaches notes that matter beyond band class.
