Born and raised in Ohio, Ron Ferlito has played the piano since he was 5 and has performed professionally since his early 20s. After studying composition, theory, and classical piano at the University of Cincinnati College – Conservatory of Music, Ron began his music career by playing keyboard and singing with one of the top pop and show bands in Ohio. Later, he relocated to Nashville where he was involved as a writer with a premier contemporary Christian music publisher.
Ron continued writing and producing music for his own recordings and printed music, including a hymn book of traditional hymns he arranged in a contemporary new age/smooth jazz and pop style. He 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, Ron became involved as a worship pastor and music instructor at several churches and schools. He continued developing his career in education as a private voice and piano instructor and college admissions advisor. In addition to his earlier studies at the music conservatory, Ron also holds a master’s degree in education.
It takes lots of time to prepare and maintain all these web sites and even more time to write, record, and produce the recordings you are hearing. Any one-time or monthly recurring donation - large or small - is greatly appreciated!
