Hello John I am a serious student of hand technique (ie Moeller technique etc.) I am incredibly impressed with the way that you have trained your hands. I know that you are an incredible and I have studied under one of your former students. Please let me know how available you are and how much you charge for a lesson. Thank you.

Thank you for all the awesome transcriptions you've contributed to MD magazine. I'm working on the Philly Joe's trading fours section in "Four". Bless you for your efforts and inspirations; hopefully I'll get a chance to have a lesson with you sometime in the future!

Dear John Riley, I know you use the K Constaninople Hihats and wanted to ask you if you also use them for funk and rock tunes that require alot hihat. P.S: What kind of rhythm was the one on "The Al Trane"? Thanks,

Hi John We met a couple of years ago at the Village Vanguard and I was most impressed with your playing. I am coming over again this summer - July 23rd through to the 31st. Would it be possible for me to book a two hour lesson with you during this period? I have been a professional player for 45 years and am a close colleague of Ronnie Bottomley (Leeds College of Music). Regards Paul
