Dear John, My twin brother, David, is a passionate drummer that plays in many different styles of music. He recently began studying your book, "The Art of Bop Drumming". Every day since he opened the first page, David's skills and creativity have grown exponentially . Thanks for inspiring him!

Hey John, thanks for helping with my drumset playing at S.F.A. percussion camp. You have helped me take my playing to another level and I have you to thank for it. I made 1st chair All-Region Jazz Band and I owe it to you. Thank you. Alwyn Robinson
