Damon Ferrante

Widely considered among professional musicians, educators, and students because of their books' ability to inspire a much deeper understanding and enthusiasm for music, '' Damon Ferrante is a composer, guitarist, also professor of piano studies and music theory. He's the author of Longwood University's prestigious Simkins Award because of his extraordinary achievements and contribution to music education and civilization. Damon has taught on the music faculties at Seton Hall University and Montclair State University. For over 25 years, Damon has taught piano, guitar, composition, and music theory.

That is exactly what Amazon readers have said about his books:

"This book is really a dynamo! It covers guitar scales, music theory, and fretboard theory (all in one) in an easy, lesson-based format. It's a great find and incredibly useful for my song writing and music theory."

"This has to be among the best tools I've ever read for learning the piano."

"We obtained our 7 year old a guitar for her birthday since she was showing an interest in musical instruments. Neither of us know how to play and didn't want it to end up in the cupboard or collecting dust in some corner of the room. I discovered this book on Amazon and decided to try it first before investing in lessons. I am quite glad I did!"

Damon has had performances in Carnegie Hall, Symphony Space, and across the Usa, Europe, and Asia. His main teachers have been David Rakowski in Columbia University, Stanley Wolfe in Juilliard, along with Bruno Amato at the Peabody Conservatory at Johns Hopkins University. Damon has written two operas, a guitar concerto, song cycles, orchestral music, and many solo and chamber music works. He's the editor-in-chief of the audio writer Steeplechase Arts.
