John Ferri holds B.M. and M.M. degrees from Queens College (C.U.N.Y.) and a Ph.D. in music theory from Yale University. Dr. Ferri served as Visiting Assistant Professor at Duke University (1997-2001) and at Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (2001-2) and has taught music theory and analysis at both undergraduate and graduate levels.
Dr. Ferri’s approach to theory and analysis is informed by his experience as a performer. He has given several papers exploring the intersection of analysis with performance in the music of Bach, Chopin, Debussy, and Ravel. Other research interests include editorial methodology, evaluation of primary source materials, and the ontology and aesthetics of music. Dr. Ferri has recently completed a review of Schenker Studies II for the journal Theory and Practice.
