Parker Jolliffe - Director of Bands
Although born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Mr. Jolliffe spent his formative years in Calgary, Alberta, focused on developing his skill and passion for all things musical. He credits inspiring teachers, extraordinary opportunities and fond memories which, ultimately, led him to pursue a life in music education – “I remember my teachers were full of life, laughter, passion… and I remember thinking, “This is something worth carrying forward.”
Mr. Jolliffe earned his Bachelor of Music from the University of Victoria in 2007 and a Masters in Music from Sam Houston State University in 2014. He is the recipient of the 2015 Staples/Black Press News Media "Great Teacher Award" (secondary school). Mr. Jolliffe is thrilled to be working with exceptional teachers and students at Spectrum Community School.
