Private Drum Teacher

I use a variety of method books for drum set, mallet percussion, and snare drum, depending on the student's level and their area of interest. I also share exercises and approaches that I have picked up over the years from teachers and other sources, and I often create exercises on the spot to address the student's unique needs. A good practice method is a tool that the student can apply to anything they're interested in; it also encourages them and allows them to have more fun.

About Stephen

I have been teaching since 2010, when I accepted a position as a graduate assistant at Bowling Green State University. My responsibilities included teaching private lessons to undergraduate percussion majors and coaching percussion ensembles. I began teaching students from middle school through hig

He is a good teacher for kids. Highly recommend!

Stephen is a really good teacher. He is experienced, nice, and patient. Especially I am a Chinese, even my language is bad, he can also find the different way to let me know how to study drum. Every class I feel happy.

Private Drum Teacher

Having performed jazz, funk, rock, pop, and blues, among other genres, I use the fluidity between these inform each of my lessons. Whether a student is a beginner looking to play their favorite song on the radio, an intermediate looking for some rhythm theory to give them more options in their playing, or an advanced player looking for improvisatory techniques, I tailor each session to the desires of each student and their learning style.

Online Drum Teacher

I have developed a natural teaching method that focuses on learning and understanding the building blocks of drum set playing, familiarizing and connecting these building blocks, and applying them to individual expression. I have the ability to take nearly anyone without prior drum set or rhythmic experience, and, within days, turn them into beat playing drummers! My approach focuses on:
-building an understanding and relationship with each drum
-the basic rudimentary foundation of drumming
-how to approach the drums, hold the sticks, set up the drums, and tune the drums
-basic mechanical techniques
-development of each limb
-learning how to read basic drum charts and play to them
-learning and playing the most significant beats and patterns in the history of drum set
-gaining the ability to effectively teach oneself how to improve as a drummer
-learning your favorite songs on drums
-how to play in a band

My lessons are both fun and educational, with flexibility to honor each student's needs and goals. During my time as a drummer, I have had the pleasure of studying music with Dr. Richard Ripani, Eddie Bell, and renowned big band drummer Duffy Jackson in Nashville, TN. I graduated in May 2017 with a degree in Studio Music/Jazz Performance at UT Knoxville, studying with Professor Keith Brown. I want to pass on all the knowledge I gained from them to you! See you soon!

"Our son decided to start learning drums this year and about a year behind the other kids at school. Kevin has been able to encourage him and provide the basic fundamental instruction so that he can feel confident as he will be transitioning into the school band class soon. It is quite obvious that he genuinely cares about his students and wants the best for them. We definitely recommend this guy if your looking for someone to help you get started on the path to becoming more musically inclined :)"

"Within the first lesson it was obvious how much Scott is passionate about playing music and helping other musicians succeed. What I really liked about Scott was that he didn't beat around the bush when it came to finding areas that I could improve upon, but in the same respect, he made sure he celebrated the successes and progress being made. That's the kind of teacher that can motivate someone to improve and feel fulfilled after the hard work being put into a craft. I unfortunately had to stop taking lessons due to outside circumstances and if I got the opportunity I would take more lessons with Scott."
