Introduction: Excellence... Integrity... Passion... This is my standard in EVERY area of service including music lessons, solo piano and piano/vocal performance, audio and video recording editing and arranging, school and church accompaniment, consultation, and rehearsal leading, etc. My style of teaching and everything I do is based on positive motivation. I don't try to MAKE my students practice and clients perform better - I make them WANT to! ****************************************************************************************** I am a skilled, experienced music teacher, recording artist, and working musician who has been teaching voice, piano, and composition lessons for over 20 years. Classically trained at the Cincinnati Conservatory, I have much practical experience in many other genres as well, having been a participant in many rock, pop, jazz, and gospel groups and performance situations through the years. I am very successful at helping students excel in whatever style of music they prefer, and I am very skilled at getting novice players and singers up and running quickly, being able to read music and perform after just a few lessons. Although teaching is my main activity, being a recording artist and working musician in other areas helps keep me relevant, up-to-date, and practical in my teaching. And teaching keeps me grounded in fundamentals and proper technique for my other activities! A mutually beneficial synergy! ****************************************************************************************** Born and raised in Ohio, I have played the piano since I was 5 and have performed professionally since my early 20s. After studying composition, theory, and classical piano at the University of Cincinnati College - Conservatory of Music, I began my music career by playing keyboard and singing with one of the top pop and show bands in Ohio. Later, I relocated to Nashville where I was involved as a writer with a premier contemporary Christian music publisher. I continued writing and producing music for my own recordings and printed music, including a hymn book of traditional hymns I arranged in a contemporary new-age/smooth jazz and pop style. I also produced and arranged for other recording artists while traveling nationwide as a respected contemporary Christian music artist, worship leader, and worship seminar instructor throughout much of the 1980s and early '90s. Later, I became involved as a worship pastor and music instructor at several churches and schools.I continued developing my career in education as a private voice and piano instructor and college admissions advisor. In addition to my earlier studies at the music conservatory, I also holds a master's degree in education. ****************************************************************************************** I have enjoyed success with several of my recordings of original music and arrangements receiving thousands of plays and downloads throughout the world through most major internet streaming and download sites. Just search for "Ron Ferlito" in your favorite music streaming service or visit my website (see below) to hear sample some of my work! I love seeing students progress and all clients reach their goals. There is always noticeable improvement in the way my students perform after even just a few lessons, and I am encouraged to hear from other clients about how my unique combination of skills and expertise helped them reach their own goals.

Singing Lessons

We have really enjoyed my son’s voice lessons with Ron. He has learned a lot about improving his range and breath control. Ron has been super flexible and professional in his communication with us.

Piano Lessons

We had our initial meeting and our 9 year old gr-daughter enjoyed her first lesson. Ron relates well to young people and stays on track with theory, technique, and performance. We look forward to working with him.

Piano Lessons

My daughter had her first lesson this weekend and she was very nervous as she has never played an instrument. Ron made the experience enjoyable and calmed her nerves. She is very excited to go again.

My son is a eclectic five year old and Ron seems to find the patience and humor for my son to learn and actually enjoy his lesson.
