Meeting Dick Johnson was like a fork in the road for me. My whole life took a different turn, and I never looked back. There is nothing like a good, caring teacher. I will never forget him.

I am so sad to here of DJ's passing. He had a very large impact on my life. Through the music that I continue to enjoy to friendships that I have carried through the years as a direct, or indirect result, of DJ Music Studio and before. I will always remember this extraordinary individual. Dick say hello to Doug Allen, I'm sure you are already playing together. :o(
