Mr parks is like no other teacher. He teaches you perspective and how screwed up this world really is, which literally no student understands until being in his class. He brings alive the pain and awfulness of what is going on in this world, and how we are controlled by propaganda. We are the ones who need to make a change.

I would like to point out that there is two different mr parkes at our school: the music one and the history one. This forum was very confusing until I realized the mix up :P Music parkes is AMAZING!

I absolutely can't stand him... It would be sweet if he could actually play his own instrument and keep some time. It's rediculously easy though.

Even though his classes are easy and not strict, his course content is relatively too easy. You will need to rely on WAY MORE than what he teaches you for post-secondary education.

mr parkes is amaizing, he is a beautiful trumpet player, and his sarcastic humour makes it easy to be in a class with him, or instructed by him in band. he makes every aspect of music a fun learning experience. I <3 PARKES
