With scales, especially 8 note, do you have any tricks or advice to how to use a metronome to build your accuracy. I currently use “tempo” for iPad and find it very good, yet with high speeds always have trouble accenting the 1 in 7 note scales.

Do you think pianists or musicians are at a musical disadvantage if they cannot sing? If they can’t, do you think it would be worth the time and effort to learn how to sing and play the piano?

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! 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, 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?

Hey Jordan. Your sounds are the best I've heard and I noticed you use Omnisphere. When you play live, do you use midi or have you imported the patches into your keyboard? If so, how do I get Omnisphere patches in my Oasys? Thanks (:

Hey Jordan. I've been meaning to ask about the lead synth in "My Last Farewell". At 1:38 in the solo you make a squealing pitch bend. How did you make that raspy squeal? Is it FM? If so, do you modulate frequency or depth of the effect? Cheers!

Hi Jordan, my name is Mike (I live in the UK). I love your new Hungarian Dance. It's so good - Brahms would have been proud to call it his own. Is there any chance you could publish a PDF or MIDI of the piano part please? Best wishes, Mike

Hi Jordan, First of all thank you for your generosity and for being so accessible to your fans. I've been following DT for over 20 years and your solo work is inspiring. Can you please post a vid of the correct fingering for DT's "Wait For Sleep"?

Hi! I was wondering if you could tell me how you created the first keyboard patch of Overture 1928 (the deep D pad in the beginning of the song). Also, did you use sounds from other sources than the Kurzweil keyboard on the SFAM album? Thanks a lot!

Rick Wakeman once said that his study of Prokofiev greatly influenced his composition. What masters have most informed your compositions? Thank you for the OC!

Hey Jordan, I was wondering if you've ever considered using the ragtimey piano riff from A Change of Seasons/Instrumedley (The one with the slide whistle) to Jordan's Riffs. Would love to learn it, super cool part. Thanks!

Hey Jordan! In The Great Debate at around 5:10 you do a weird vocal like effect in the background, is this a sample from something? And is there anywhere I can find isolated keys tracks for the Six Degrees album? Many thanks Sir!!

Hi Jordan, could you show some DT riff played with the killing Geoshred app? Have you plan to play in Europe outside festival context?

Hey Jordan, so excited about the upcoming tour! Is there any chance we hear S2N or At Wit's End in the 1st set, or substituting The Glass Prison for Pull Me Under as the encore piece? Thank you!

Hi Jordan! I just got accepted into Wayne State University's Department of Music. I am very curious, despite great change over the years, do you have any tips for me going into a music career or even just university? See you in Detroit, April 2nd!
