Learn More About Ron Parsons


Transformational Band Director

As the director of the Danvers High School band for 33 years, Ron transformed the band program from a small community group of 30 students into a large, nationally recognized organization with over 150 members. They performed for a presidential inauguration, the Pasadena Tournament of Roses parade in 2001, 2006, and 2010, the 70th and 75th anniversaries commemorating the attacks on Pearl Harbor, and other prestigious events across the United States.

Contagious Enthusiasm

Ron earned his master’s degree in education summa cum laude from the University of Massachusetts, Lowell and holds two professional teaching licenses, one in music and another as Supervisor/Director. He is an accomplished educator and a proven leader with contagious enthusiasm, a passion for driving growth, and a strong commitment to developing dynamic, service-based student leaders. He has dedicated his time to mentoring senior students to become trainers for underclassmen, preparing the next generation for leadership roles. His leadership and mentorship program has served as a model for other professional groups and organizations. Ron is recognized by SBO magazine (School, Band, and Orchestra) as one of “The Top 50 Directors in the U.S.A.,” and by The Salem News as one of “The Top 100 Leaders Who Make a Difference in Essex County.”


When we work together towards a common goal, we can hit a lot of roadblocks along the way. This is due to the fact that we sometimes get hung up on "unwritten rules" that limit how we work as a team to effectively accomplish that goal. Ron’s mission is to help your team identify and overcome these rules, leading you to become a more dedicated, creative, and confident contributor to your respective projects - regardless of the setting!

Ron offers four programs focusing on where the unwritten rules may be holding your team back:

"All of us have some degree of influence—your influence might be local, but your impact can be global."
