John Ferrara is a consummate professional and an outstanding teacher. i have been taking lessons from him on a weekly basis for four years. He is punctual, enthusiastic, extremely talented both as an artist and as an instructor (in my case - jazz piano), an absolute pleasure to work with. i give him my highest recommendation.Aug 22, 2016
Mr. Ferrara was able to keep the environment in each lesson comfortable, yet professional. No matter what we were doing, whether it be jamming or working out harmonic ideas, I felt a great sense of connection between us. With his vast knowledge of melody, harmony, and rhythm, would absolutely recommend him to any musician looking to improve their musicality or piano skills.Nov 8, 2016
