Dear John, I was wondering do you do private instruction. I understand you are busy I live in the western mass area. Thank You for the great drumming and books. Best Wishes James

Dear John, I'm very interested in buying a copy of your wonderful DVD "The Master Drummer". The problem is I live in Barcelona, Spain, and this product is definitely not available in any drumshop in town (or even in Spain). Could you tell me if its available in any music store in Europe, so that I can purcharse it on line? I would really appreciate any information you could give me. Thanks in advance. Thanks also for being such a great inspiration! All the best, Javier del Castillo L.

Hello John, Quick question. Subject: Chp 28 of The Jazz Drummers Workshop, The Pyramid: On part 1, the first 4 bars of the exercise, does bar 2 and bar 4 have essentially the same sound? Also, where does the quarter note fall on bar 3? Does the quarter note within bar 3 "flam" with the exercise? Hopefully I'm making sense here. Thank you for continuing to be such a great teacher and player! -Dave
