Although we had many clashes and battles with one another during the three years we worked with one another, I liked PJ a lot and would gladly be his student again if he came to Ohio State and I got back into music. It was always a lot of fun to try and irritate him or do something funny during class. He was hard with playing tests, but always very fair. He also had a great sense of humor and was a genuinely nice guy outside of class activities.

PJ is someone you either hate, or love, in my case hate. how much of a hard time he gives you depends on how much he likes you. if he doesn't like you, like he didn't me, then he'll pretty much try to fail you on music checks, and pic apart every mistake you do in your song

Did not think that he was that great of a teacher. Gets too nervous in front of a crowd and has a tough time taking control.

PJ is cool, once you get to know him on a better level than just band director he is a cool guy. You people who hate him are just slackers.

Needs to work on handling disruptive students. This is the most passive aggressive man I've ever met. Kinda scary.

Parker-Jones is cool. He's really funny. But that's because he's been my teacher since middle school. You have to have him as a teacher for a while. He's nice.

He wants people to practise, and Concert Band members are there mostly because they don't practise as much or intense of Symphonic. He wants us to sound good
