About Mark

I am a full-time working drummer currently residing in Las Vegas. In addition to guiding up and coming drummers with their musical careers, I am working on music & soundtracks for film and television projects with platinum-selling recording artist Mark Slaughter. My drumming can be heard on Mark Slaughter'™s first-ever solo track, "Never Givin™ Up" Release March 18, 2014 on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play.

In April of last year I was inducted (for the 2nd time!) into the Las Vegas Rock Hall of Fame for my collaboration with "Ripside." I performed at the induction concert with fellow inductees Xcursion (Mark Slaughter, guitar/vocals; Kelly Garni, bass guitar). A picture of this performance is included in my "photos & video" section. ...

Mark rocks!

Mark’s incredible skill as a drummer is only matched by his abilities as a teacher. In just a short time with Mark’s instruction, I have made vast improvements in my drumming. At my first lesson with Mark, he determined my skill level and what I sought to achieve with my lessons. Almost immediately, the fundamentals Mark showed me were translating into my drumming with my band. Mark has opened doors in my playing that I didn’t know existed. Mark is incredibly patient and really cares about ensuring I receive significant benefit from my lessons. Mark really goes out of his way to make sure I fully grasp everything he shows me. I would highly recommend Mark for anyone who wants to learn from a true master at his craft and from a teacher who takes pride in his students and his teaching. Thank you Mark!!

Mark Review

I have had many different types of music teachers through out my life and Mark is by far the best. He is very serious about helping his students do what they want to do. I had specific goals I wanted to accomplish. Mark took my goals seriously and did what he could to help me understand the techniques to be a good drummer. He broke things down in to little steps that helped me to practice on my own and figure specific drum patterns out, He gave me the tools to improve myself as a musician, Mark did not have to but he chose to put a lot of his own time in to teaching me what I wanted to learn He obviously cares about his students and takes them seriously. I highly recommend him to any future students

Great teacher

Steve has been a great teacher for my easily distracted 8 year old. He is patient and willing to go the extra mile to make his lessons entertaining and educational. My 8 year old enjoys playing the drums and showing off new skills. Thanks, Steve.

Steve has been a great drum tacher for my son. My son didnt know anything about the drums and within 6 months my son was playing along to music on CD and even reading music!

I would reccomend Steve to anyone...
Richard G. Las Vegas, NV


Hello! just a little bit of my background, to share with you! I was originally trained a Michigan State University, in East Lansing Michigan, as a concert, symphonic snare drummer! This training was followed up years later, with more training on the entire drumset, plus misc. percussion, in Detroit!

I felt very fortunate to have met jazz great . . ."Buddy" Rich, and took lessons from a friend of his, (too bad it wasn't "buddy" himself!...but I eventually...did get "Buddy's" autograph)!!! :) What an inspiration he was!!!

For years, after my training, I became the head: drum/percussion instructor, at a major music store in East Lansing, Michigan, (Many of the students, were music majors at M.S.U.! They were referred to me, by my past instructor ...
