A word of advice to new students - he's not as scary as he seems. You rarely see him smile, but when you do you know he means it. I'll never forget the look on his face after opening night of the musical. Pure, happiness and passion for what he's doing and has done. If you can see past his gruff exterior I'm sure you'll have a good time with him.
Good guy. Gets a lot too stressed out sometimes, but has a lot of good jokes up his sleeve. Occasionally responds rudely to comments or concerns, due to his high stress level. Knows what he's doing music-wise though.
He gets way too stressed, but when he's not he's a really cool guy. He's very realistic and I just wish he didn't have to feel so stressed all the time! He's a little intense, but you just gotta get to know him.
This man changed my life. It's because of him that I became so passionate about music. I feel lucky to call him my teacher and my friend. Thanks for everything Parr!
MY FAVORITE TEACHER OF ALL TIME!!! He was not only my teacher but a friend. I miss being his TA, he does so much for everybody, he is so helpful. He does more than anybody realizes
Í MISS MR. PARR!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Though he got quite stressed at times, I found him to be an awesome person to be able to go and talk to about my problems.
Mr. Parr is an excellent maestro! Great sense of rythm!
gets a little (or a lot) stressed out sometimes, but good things always come out
