-Darryl Jones (bassist for The Rolling Stones)

"We had the pleasure of having Jonathan Moffett out to film some entertaining and educational content for drummers. Jonathan worked extremely hard and the content we collaborated on has been viewed more than 30 million times. Not only is he an amazing drummer and performer, he is one of the kindest people I have ever met."

“When I think of Jonathan Moffet I think of  a kind and motivating example of how to stand the test of time while maintaining relationships and career goals.”

-Brian Fraiser Moore (drummer for Jennifer Lopez)

"Every one knows Michael was a stickler for perfection. Every time he performed he wanted it perfect. And the people he worked with strived to meet that expectation. You're looking at a man who has gone to that level of perfection."
