Quotes

I've known John for almost a decade. He is a spiritually-minded man and an excellent organist. His mastery of Hymnal music and other religious genre music is always apparent. And, he is also an excellent pianist!" --Diane P. Dailey, C.S.B. "I hear pure music and feel inspired when John's playing. There's just pure harmony, expression, and glory. And as an accompanist, he's second to none. He listens better than anyone I've sung with. He expresses the Christ through his music. And not only is his technical skill superb, but he composes moving and inspiring melodies, all of which I've had the pleasure of singing. It's a very special skill to be able to compose for the singer. He does.
