Hi John. Former student Jonathan Riley here. Just wanted you to know the work you did with me at M.S.M. really started to pay off once out of school and applying it. I still use the brush techniques you helped me delvelop. I find myself using your approach with my students as well. Thanks.

Hi John. I first saw you in clinic at the Rhythm week in England many years ago. With your exercises I began the long path of discovering and playing jazz. Since then I've bought all of your books and have been playing drums professionally for over 5 years. You really have been the main inspiration for my drumming and I feel your books provide direction into an otherwise very intimidating and daunting style of music. So thanks! Is there gonna be any new books coming out? Sam

Greetings John: Just wanted to say it was great meeting you this past weekend in Chicago. Your clinic at Steve Maxwell's was very informative and then watching you put those techniques in a performance setting at the Green Mill was a great treat. It was a very informative and educational weekend. Thanks again for hanging and spending time with us. Until next time . . . safe travels and keep swinging.
