He is someone who felt compelled to pass on knowledge, a brilliant musician who communicated his deep musical insight by performing live for us, those performances gave me the gift of jazz!

I had Mr. Halferty for music. He is possibly one of the greatest music teachers in the world. Passionate, energetic and a great sense of humour. Thanks for the good times Halfo!

Halfo was a legend. Nothing short of it. Anyone that says otherwise has to go a little bit further in life to appreciate it. Thats my 2 cents worth.
