He is someone who felt compelled to pass on knowledge, a brilliant musician who communicated his deep musical insight by performing live for us, those performances gave me the gift of jazz!
What a passionate teacher Tommy was. He really loved to teach whether it was English, French or Music. I had him for English and Music and I loved him as a teacher. A guy guy...a LEGEND!!!
"Halfo" as a great teacher when i attended Coolmine. He always wants you to do the best you can and he will try everything he can to help you
Tommy... Hugh Quinn here.... always loved your classes.. looked forward to them... I got an A.. the only A I ever got!!
lol love the comment about playing guitar or bein female.. well im female and play guitar lol he loved me and ty music was the best class ever triple music just jammin basically! gr8 guitarist..
A brilliant teacher excellent , made music and english class interesting.
Great music teacher but thats not much help when he's supposed to be teaching you English! Seemed to get distracted very easily. But a nice man and good craic. Will always remember his woolly scarf!
he is the best guitarist i have ever heard he is simply a legend in Coolmine a very funny man too, it's very enjoyable to be around him
I had Mr. Halferty for music. He is possibly one of the greatest music teachers in the world. Passionate, energetic and a great sense of humour. Thanks for the good times Halfo!
Pure Legend, - Music class was the best hour of the week.... let loose with double bass, drum kits, bass guitars, triangles, pianos.... Too much fun! every student needs an hour of this a week.
Halfo was a great insparation to me. aswell as being an amazing guitarist he was also a great teacher. He is also a great friend and always helps you with your problems no matter what they are!
The best teacher I ever had, the only teacher in the place who has a keen interest in the students and genuinely cares. He's a great inspiration and an excellent teacher!!!
he is great at playin guitar but he waffiles a bit and u dont learn anything
May be a great guitarist, but he's supposed to be teaching classics and English. Waffles a bit.
i had him last year for english,he was good crack and was always playing his gituar in the class for us,straight A for me,and ive him for classical studides now
he loved me!!!!coz I was so helpful and a model student, of course!
Tends to waffle a lot. Sometimes gets his facts wrong. Sound enough though. can have a great laugh.
Unique teacher. Relaxed atmosphere in class. I enjoyed the class.
The charisma of Coolmine. Wonderfully eccentric & passionate about life and his subjects. Great person, outstanding musician.
if you went to see one of his gigs,you knew the passion he had.cool,legend, master guitar player, a big inspiration
an inspiration as a musician but shud not be teaching english, tut tut stop talking
Halfo is an absolute legend!!! The man should be doing lectures more, it would suit him better. He kept me sane for 3 years. Thanks man!!
so sound!ad him in 1st!he locked de fellaz in de equipment room,av sum funny memories!promised me i wud av him in 2nd year but i got sexton,im quitin nxt year!
Anyone who says anything bad about halfo is mad.Hes brilliant.Best teacher i ever had at school!Got me an A1 in honours english l.c
I wish I still was in the school to attend his classes. A legend. A bit fussy at times but that's just his personality. A brilliant musican.
Was not a fan of this chap. Kinda took favs and sometines he would waffle for days!
this man is brilliant,he is one of the most open minded people iv ever met and i used to look forward to this class.far more interesting than some of the pr**k
Halfo was a legend. Nothing short of it. Anyone that says otherwise has to go a little bit further in life to appreciate it. Thats my 2 cents worth.
a totlal legend. brilliant guitarist and i wish he still taught me
Great man,not the best teacher.He's totally unclear&changes his mind every 2 mins.Total contradiction.Uses the window poles to make his point-not the safest!
(tut tut) halfo is a good man and a good teacher and any critisam of him is unfounded
have him 4 french. can't even speak english never mind fremch. he's a legend though
This man is a legend. He may go off the point sometimes, but still, he is generally an all round hero and a great teacher
