Born in Mashhad, Iran, Parham Haghighi is a music producer, vocalist, pianist, and educator. He moved to the United States in 2012 to study at Berklee College of Music in Boston where he graduated, Summa cum Laude, in Contemporary Writing and Production with a focus on Vocal Jazz Performance. During his time in Boston, Parham had the chance of learning from and working with world-renowned musicians including the multi-award-winning Spanish producer Javier Limon, Arabic music Master Simon Shaheen, and acclaimed Brazilian singer-songwriter and feminist icon Joyce Moreno, to name a few. In 2015, Parham co-directed the “7th Annual Berklee Middle Eastern Music Festival: Music of Persia”; a concert in which he also performed, arranged, and conducted. A recipient of Berklee’s “Outstanding Achievement Award”, Haghighi has been actively performing as a vocalist and pianist at the music festivals and venues across the US.
Having more than a decade experience of teaching private and group piano/voice/theory lessons, Parham equally has a true passion for children and their education. Since 2016, Parham also has been the executive board member of Iranian Performing Arts Inc. that focuses on uncovering, preserving, and celebrating the diverse cultures of Iran through dance. Currently living in Brooklyn, NY, he wholeheartedly continues to expand his musical horizons and pursue his career, hoping to play a valuable role in the repressed, lesser-known world of Iranian music.
