"Mr. Ferreira has a way of taking something that seems way above my level of understanding and can explain, even demonstrate it, in simple terms. I think his love of music is magnified through his even greater gift - teaching!" Judy O'Connor, Ridgefield CT
"..he teaches the whole piece, the melody, the chords, the harmonies and backup parts. It's learning in depth, not just how to play notes, but how to get inside the music." Paul Pereira, Manhattan NY
"...well versed in his music knowledge and willing to share it." D. Murphy, Waterbury CT
"...excellent training, experience, and most importantly
a positive and encouraging
teaching style." B. Volles, Southbury CT
"Listening to Peter Ferreira and Timothy Wallace makes you embark in fantasy and the sweet pleasure of the senses.."

"Peter's playing was a reminder that being a great violinist involves more than nailing all the right notes. It involves having musical courage. And if you have personal courage to back it up, as Peter does, so much the better."
Amy Ullman - Music Education Professor. SCSU _________________________________________
"..a seasoned violinist with an European influence,
sure to captivate the audience." NYT
"Mr. Ferreira, among so many talented great violinists of our time, has a rare quality, which I do admire. The fact that he does not take for granted the "built in" tone quality of the instrument and he is also able to project a beautiful, golden tone; this quality should be noticed in our epoch, in which speed, volume and technical abilities prime above interpreting music..."
