John Yarling

Primary Instrument



Fort Lauderdale

Willing to teach

Intermediate to advanced


I've been teaching at The Frost School of Music - University of Miami for 20 years in the Studio Music & Jazz Department, and privately for 10 years. I have played/toured and or recorded with Curtis Fuller, Ira Sullivan, Kevin Mahogany, Rick Margitza (South Florida Jazz Orchestra) Mitch Woods, and many other artists. I teach numerous styles, in both small (combo) and large group (big band) settings. I also specialize in college audition preparation for drummers who are majoring in music. Lessons: 1 hour / $80 - I offer Zoom/remote lessons as well as in person lessons, if the student is in the South Florida Area. Hours: Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday between 12:30 pm and 6:00 pm.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
