Roland Parkins

A PASSION FOR TEACHING
I take great pleasure in seeing my students grow, expand their understanding, overcome challenges and achieve their goals.

A MASTER PROBLEM-SOLVER
Over the years I have helped hundreds of students overcome difficulties. You may be a beginner struggling to play barre chords, an intermediate player trying to break out of the rut of playing the same scales when soloing, a recording artist who cannot play in time, a singer with pitch problems, or an aspiring jazz player trying to improvise over chord changes. Whatever your challenge may be,
I can help you.

TRAINING
My training includes guitar and classical piano, voice and West African drumming. I attended Columbia University for music and composition.

PERFORMING
I have performed my original songs in solo and band format at many NY clubs and theaters, at numerous colleges in the Northeast and overseas.

PRODUCTION
I have produced numerous artists in styles including folk, rock, heavy metal, rap, country, dance, and African pop.

COMPOSING
I have composed original songs and scores for commercials, infomercials, documentary, independent and industrial films. I have also created original songs and scores for theater and performing artists.
