Beautiful music! I wished I had discovered it 25 years ago. I work with the elderly in care and they enjoy this music so much.

From the age of about 11 till 16 I used to travel out to John's place in Hobart for weekly piano lessons.

It was invaluable, as John taught me all the basics required to play and arrange music.

That was now over 50 years ago and I am still managing to make occasional outings playing with bands. Probably not as good as you played them John but certainly enjoying every moment of sharing a tune with other musicians and the people who really make music, the audience.

What you have given me and possibly other students, is one of the greatest gifts imaginable. A lifetime of music.

As a young kid I probably never appreciated this as much as you do when you get older so I probably never really thanked you for this. So wherever you are playing at the moment John I hope this thank you get's to you. Thanks mate!

John Sidney used to live up the street from us in the 70's and 80's. He tuned our piano for us. When he had finished tuning he would play a few tunes. I used to love that bit.

Late last year my husband and I were touring in NW Tasmania. We visited the Allendale gardens between Stanley and Smithton. They were playing a John Sidney CD in the gardens and we were able to purchase one there.

I think it's great that the music of this very talented man lives on.

I found a sampler of Johns music in my mother-in-laws CD's. The name was familiar, popped it in the CD player and wow, instant recognition, John taught me music way, way, way back in Hobart. Marvelous musician and teacher.

John Sidney's music is always a pleasure to listen to for relaxation and enjoyment.
His entertaining type of different tempos, styles and easy listening is very pleasurable indeed. Wherever one is, hearing the sounds of the piano or organ is music to the ears of many folk. Many hours are spent in our house just listening to John's wonderful sounds.

Hi Kerri, just remembering John again and thought of him on his anniversary in November. I have changed my E-mail address to the above for any future contact.
I was wondering where he is buried. I am going to Hobart early in 2008 & would like to visit his grave.

Every best wish, Vince Downey

I am a friend of John's from Hobart, Tasmania, now living in Melbourne. I first got to know John while working at Allans Music (Australia)Limited 147 Liverpool Street in late 1960's. He had his teaching studio at the rear of the store. I am a pianist/organist and he taught me a lot. I even baby sat for him once. A lovely personality. I was sad to hear he had died 11th Nov 2002. A great site to his memory. Vince Downey

Unbelievable! What a great talent John Sidney had. I have never heard that style of piano playing played with such skill and to such perfection! My wife and I enjoy this type of music so much but find it difficult to buy anywhere these days.

We haven't stopped playing the CDs since they arrived. Thank you for your prompt service and for taking the initiative to preserve this great artists work and sharing it with the likes of us around the world! You are doing a splendid job of it. Well done 'downunder'.

A John Sidney fan forever, Tom

I have just discovered your web site and enjoyed listening to the music samples so much. My only regret is that I didn't discover it in time to buy some for Christmas gifts, as I have several members of the family and friends who would really relate to this lovely music. There's always next year and they do have birthdays too, so Ill be back for sure. Your web site is so easy to navigate. Thank you for this bit of joy you have added to our lives. All the best for 2005. Dorothy
