Hello, john. I'm a Chinese drum teacher, I want to translate your book for Chinese students. How can I do that?

Hi Mr Riley, I have been very impressed with all your books and videos and found them to all be invaluable in playing. I came across a recommendation in the Tune Bot app that said you tuned you snare side (reso) head to 400Hz - I found the courage to try this and did not get close before the reso split. Can you please tell me if this number is accurate and if so what thickness snare reso heads do you use . I thank you in anticipation Kind regards Mark

Hi John, I would like to study more of Max Roach. I have your transcriptions of some of his solos from your books and MD. Do you give lessons on the internet? Or any recommendations? Thank you, Jack
