Mr. Ferrante was by no means "easy" and was absolutely "strict", and for both of those reasons, he was one of the best teachers I ever had. He loves music, he knows music, and he wanted his students to know and love it, too. He pushed us beyond our comfort level, he expected perfection, and I, for one, wanted his pride and approval for every exercise, every rehearsal, every performance, every time. He taught more than how to sing, he taught musicianship, and for that I am forever grateful.
MY NAME IS MARIO HAWKINS I ATTENDED BEREA HIGHSCHOOL IN 2002 3 AND 4,MR FERRANTE ALLOWED ME TO BE IN HIS CONCERT CHOIR MY FIRST YR...I DID PRETTY GOOD BECOUSE HE THEN ALLOWED ME TO BE IN HIS MEISTERSINGERS FOR THE NEXT 2 YRS...I HAD BEHAVIORAL ISSUES AND HE MENTORED ME AND TAUGHT US GREAT MUSIC...CHOIR WAS THE REASON ALOT OF TIMES WHY I CAME TO SCHOOL!!!THANK YOU MR.JOE FERRANTE...YOU DA MAN!!!
he is my favorite teacher! i dont know how people dont like him! he's really chill
Yeah, it's good to have somebody care about the choir but he is way to egotistical. What's with that?
I love ferrante! I do not understand how people can say that he is not a good teacher and has no talent, and doesn't get a good sound out of the choir!
Ferrante definitely is a bonus for the choir, it has always needed soomeone who won't allow it to be a joke. He is effective and fair, regardless.
Mr. Ferrante is the best thing that ever happened to the Berea High choral program.
He really needs to get over himself. He's way too concerned with what people think of him.
I think that Ferrante has done a lot for the program and he really knows what he is talking about when it comes to music. I also know he has his flaws
I remember Meistersingers a while ago when Young had it....my brother was in it. They were awesome! Ferrante does OK, tho
I hate what Furrante has done to the Berea Meistersingers. Am I the only one that remembers when they used to do good music, and had talent?
