I love Mr. Parker-Jones!
cool dude. plays jazz xylophone in jazz ensemble sometimes, but never takes a leading role when teaching with Redman
Every one that says that he is a bad teacher is certinly wrong. Who ever says He isnt a talented musician is wrong. If you acutaly get to know him is one of the best teachers!
the most underrated teacher on here. he's a genuinely nice guy, and has a solid musical knowledge.
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.
he is an ok teacher but kind lazy but then again i might just hate standing around all day with nothing to do
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.
Come On, you guys hate him because he wants you to use effort, god forbid!!!
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
HEy PJ, its concert badn, we're there to make symphonic look good...down with 7:15 am practices! Tries to hard
