Hello Mr. John! I would love to study in your class and I have heard, from Mark Guiliana's interview, that you teach in William Paterson University. I have checked the list of teachers on WPU website, but I could not find you there. So, I would like to know if you are a teacher in WPU. Thanks in advance

Hi John, I just wanted to let you know that I'm starting to lose my mind. Yes. I'm stuck on exercise one of the 3-beat motifs from The Jazz Drummers Workshop. I've spent nearly a week on this. I can't separate the ride from the bass and drum. I've broken the beat down to its simple components, played slowly, but I keep defaulting the ride to a 1. Basically my brain just won't let me do it. It's my brains fault. I'm going to keep trying John. Thanks.
