IMPORTANT! Detailed Information about Recital coming up December 13th and 14th!

  Thursday, December 5, 2019 by Ron Ferlito | Uncategorized





Hello Folks!

It's that time again when we will come together this weekend and share what we have been doing and learning through RFM with others in a grand recital! It will be a fun, rewarding event with reception and refreshments immediately following each performance! 

Program 1: Friday December 13 at 6:30 PM 

Program 2: Saturday December 14 at 11 AM



CHECK THE LIST:

Scroll all the way down below this email and you will find a list of all participants and the times they will be performing. Please double check this list and inform me of any changes such incorrect spelling, wrong time, etc. that may be needed via text, at your lesson, or even at the event for last minute changes. I have pre- arranged greeters and set up crew like I have in the past, but If you would like to volunteer to bring some snacks or dessert to share at the reception or help with the clean up crew on Saturday please do so! We could always use more help! ESPECIALLY FOOD BRINGERS FOR THE RECEPTIONS! Please let me know if you will be bringing snacks or desserts to share. Thanks.



S0 WHAT'S NEW?

The big news is that we will be back at our old location at West Valley Freewill Baptist Church just west of Goodyear Near Verrado off Jackrabbit Rd. near the I- 10 Freeway.   Although our new location at Legacy House of Avondale was a big success last spring, we were unable to use that facility for this particular event due to a scheduling error. Our plans are to return there in the spring and hopefully continue to meet there for future recitals moving forward. Here is the location information you will need. I will also be sending text links to your phones for your convenience: 

West Valley Free Will Baptist Church
19956 W McDowell Rd, Buckeye, AZ 85396
(623) 853-0570

PLEASE STAY:

Please stay for the entire program your child is performing in, even if they are one of the first performers. Each program will last about an hour and 45 minutes but they are fun and entertaining so please have the expectation of staying for the full program and joining us at the reception following, unless you have a circumstance beyond your control (work schedule, important family obligation, etc.) that requires you to leave early and you have informed me ahead of time of your early departure. It is important that there is a good sized audience for all participants and many of the more advanced older students will be performing toward the end of each performance so you will want to stay for those great presentations.


LIVE VIDEO BROADCAST:

Once again the entire program will be broadcast live. If you can not attend you may watch it as it happens, send the link to family and friends around the world so they can view it, and watch later because the performance will remain posted on my Facebook business page. You do not need to log into Facebook, have a Facebook account, or be "friends" with me on Facebook to view this, although you may want to "Like" my page while you are there to receive further updates and other information. Here is the link:

Feel free to share this with anyone on your own social media and elsewhere.


BE READY!

Make sure each student has any music or books they will need, has warmed up and practiced earlier that day before coming to the event, and is dressed sharp and excited about putting their best performance out there! Please arrive at least 15 minutes before the start of the program you are participating in so the students will have time to get accustomed to the stage and find their seats in the front rows and on the church platform. The exact list of the order of performance will not be printed in the program handout, but as in the past the performance order will be determined by the order in which they are seated within each group. Each program will be divided into three segments in the following order: 1) children under 12 years of age; 2) adults and absentee video participants; 3) Older children and teens 12 years old and older. I will direct children and teens to their designated seats up front when they arrive. Adults who are performing can sit anywhere and I will call them up when it is their turn. 



And don’t forget to check the list below for accuracy and get back to me ASAP about any changes needed. 

ALSO- don’t forget to let me know if you plan to bring desserts or snacks for the receptions immediately following each program. We will need volunteers for drinks, ice, cups, paper plates napkins plasticware etc. and the final cleanup crew after Saturday’s event.

I WILL SEE YOU THERE!

Final Chance and special offer to help Ron Ferlito reach his crowdfunding goal!

Thursday, July 25, 2019 by Ron Ferlito | Uncategorized



Hello Current and Former Students and Parents!

The crowdfunding campaign to help build a following and raise funds for me to launch the third and final ongoing recording phase of my long term business plan to return to music ends within a week - Thursday August 1st.

in order to make it possible for as many of you who are my closest associates to participate, I have created a special HALF PRICE offer with limited availability for the featured Associate Producer pledge level. If you respond now, you can receive all of the music from all three projects being completed through this campaign (Instrumental, Cover Songs, and Contemporary Christian) in both digital and physical CD formats plus access to my ongoing creative team for just a $30 pledge. You can also receive any one of my music projects digitally with a donation as low as $10, so I’d love to see you all participate. 

This special offer is made only to you through my teaching blog and mail list first before I present this to a wider audience via my full RFM mailing list and social media. You can only access this special “secret” offer through this custom link. It will not be visible with the normal link or searches, so be sure to click on this now: 

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/2506898/x/21821709?secret_perk_token=d766d22b

I know many of you may have heard me talking about this or seen an earlier mailing and thought that you may want to contribute, but that you would do it later. Well - NOW is the time to do this because the whole thing will be over in a few days! Being part of this would be a great way to keep up with what’s happening in my music business in addition to teaching, and you can also get to lots of my music from there, which most of you have rarely if ever heard. Rest assured that teaching will remain my primary music activity, but by staying involved with performing and recording my own music I believe it makes me a better teacher by keeping me involved in the real world music business and helping me to stay fully developed in my own performance disciplines.

Please don’t feel obligated, but I hope you can support the campaign and receive some of my music and other perks I’m offering. Here is the special link again:

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/2506898/x/21821709?secret_perk_token=d766d22b

I’ll see you all at your next lessons!

Exciting News From Ron Ferlito!

Wednesday, June 12, 2019 by Ron Ferlito | Uncategorized



Hello Current and Former Students and Parents!

Below is a link to that crowdfunding campaign I may have mentioned to you. After a week of test marketing, this is the final version we are now releasing to a wider audience:

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-third-leg#/

The introductory video at the top by my friend - Author and great communicator Tom Kraeuter is less than 2 minutes long and will give you a great overview, so I hope you’ll at least take a moment to view that now.  

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-third-leg#/

This campaign is all about launching the “Third Leg” of my overall music business long term vision. It’s all about getting back to recording and distributing my own music. But don’t worry - the First Leg is teaching and I have zero plans for diminishing or ending that any time soon. It will remain my primary activity along with the Second Leg - occasional live performances and now this Third and final Leg of recording. Being part of this would be a great way to keep up with what’s happening in my music business in addition to teaching, and you can also get to lots of my music from there, which most of you have rarely if ever heard. By me staying involved with performing and recording my own music I believe it makes me a better teacher by keeping me involved in the real world music business and helping me to stay fully developed in my own performance disciplines.

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-third-leg#/

Anyway - Please don’t feel obligated, but I hope you can support the campaign and receive some of my music and other perks I’m offering. And if you could at least share it around a bit- especially to those who you think would be most interested in this music and what you are doing with your own music, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. 

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-third-leg#/

I’ll see you all at your next lessons!
