Hey there Jordan! I just got the plug for your Aristco page. Great tracks! Listen, I was wondering if you ever get around to playing solo shows at the Bearsville Theater in Woodstock NY.

Hey Jordan I have an idea that would be appreciated by DT fans around the world that you guys could do: how about doing a DT band clinic? I mean like, explaining your process of composing, practicing, discipline, unisons etc? People would love that!

Hi Jordan, Just a very quick question out of all the sounds you have created over the years whether it be for Dream Theater, Liquid Tension, LMR or Solo work. Which one is your favourite one and the one that you enjoy using most? Josh

Hi, Jordan! Magne from Norway here! I loved how you broke down your sounds on the Keyboard Madness DVD. That was using the Kurzweil setup. Any chance we┬┤re gonna see some more of that with the Kronos and with the amazing music made after that time?

Hey Jordan, first of all you are my biggest influence on piano. I can't wait to meet you on Nov 4th in Peoria. I have been working hard in your Circle of Inversions. Is there sheet music for that beautiful warm-up you just did on Facebook?

Hey Jordan how's it going? I would like to know, how are things with Dream Theater? What are you up to, or put simply, what are your plans. But also something that's been bugging me for years now: are you still using the OASYS at all? I miss it...

Hello Jordan, how are you? Thanks for all the material and the oportunity to ask about your work. I'd like to know if you could explain how to make the all layering, except piano, fade away with just one slider in Korg Kronos (like SFAM: Spirit..)Thx

hi, I frequently play jazz songs and when it comes to soloing using modes and acccompaining with chords I cannot get out of the monotony from a too simple improvisation style; any advices for spicing it up?

Hey Jordan, I've got a question about performing at live shows. I've recently come to realize how hard it is to avoid that stern face, lost in concentration while playing. Is there a way to practice a more outgoing expression while on stage?

Hi Jordan, I have just bought a Korg Kronos 2 and I was wondering if you have ever or have ever considered releasing sound patches for it since I know you use a Kronos too. Also, is there any tips for designing your own synth sound? Thank you

Hi Jordan, question comes from far away (Brazil). I`m having a hard time performing arpeggios with high jumps like when you have to pass your thumb under other fingers to reach it. What type of exercise would you recommend to improve that? Thank you!

Has the material on the JROC been matched to piano method levels or RCM grades so that someone at a particular level/grade knows what here they are prepared to play?

Hi Jordan, would there be any chance of some excerpts for the Levin Minneman Rudess riffs to learn being uploaded to the OC anytime as I really love the albums? Josh

When you write, either with Dream Theater or on your own, do you go about writing the songs in chronological order from start to finish, or do you write it one section at a time and then connect the pieces together, or is it some other process?

Hi Jordan I have a quick question about Pull Me Under and the bouncy organ sound that you use at the very end of the song. How do you program that in as it sounds really cool and would to know how to do it? All the best! Josh
