Hello John, I'm an italian drummer. I studied at Berklee College back in 1983. I' loved your atr of bop drumming, and I just both the other two on amazon. Lerning is a neverending story and you are a great teacher, that really share the experience. Was Bill Stewart a student of yours? I can feel I have something in common. Thanks a lot for everything

I have'nt seen you since 1976 at NTSU. You probably don't remember me, but I took lessons from you then. You were a great inspiration to me. I'm so proud of your career. I went on to play and teach but now I own a business. I'm doing very well at it but I still play, and I love it. I never stop wanting to learn more. Teaching is so much about bringing out what a student has inside and making him believe he can reach high. You did that for me.

Hi John! We had a private lesson in Amsterdam during one of your workshops at the conservatory there. I am in New York now for three months. It would be great to have more lessons from you. The first one can be very soon, just let me know via email or 646-785-4739. Thanks and hopefully see you soon, Achim

Hi John, I'd just like to say I'm working on your book "Art of Bop Drumming", and you don't have any idea how it's helping me! You are an incredible teacher!! I'm from Brazil and your Drum methods are helping a lot of drummers that I know! Thank you for these amazing books!!!
