Stephen rocks! He is kind, patient, professional and an incredible drummer. He has proved exceptional at teaching drum mechanics to my 13 yo daughter, who looks forward to her lessons with Stephen, He is also flexible with our busy schedule, and even helped us put our new drum set together... :)

Stephen is an excellent drummer and teacher. I always look forward to my time with him. We have been doing hourly lessons every other week. He is very flexible and challenging. I am learning to replay the drums after many years and his advice has been encouraging and very helpful. I recommend Stephen highly.
