John Sturino is one of the best young drummers I have played with. He has a great intuitive feel, is an excellent reader, and shows a lot of self-discipline, as he clearly was well prepared when I got to UNT for our Zappa concert. I would recommend him highly for any gig.
“I have known John Sturino for over ten years. During that time, his remarkable talent and determination have created a special career as both teacher and performer. He’ll make a powerful impact on any school music program - the kind of artist who will touch and inspire his students, colleagues, administrators, and audiences alike.”
John Sturino—a consummate professional before even completing a bachelor’s degree. Heart, precision, generosity, humility, and an openness to learn and grow exude from his musicianship, from his teaching, and from his approach to life. Genuine to the core, John is the kind of cat that everyone who hires him is happy they did.
John is one of the most creative young drummers on the scene today. I really dig his playing!
