Lesson Details

Drum

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
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.

Teaching since:
August 2010

I have been teaching privately 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 high school age around the same time, and my students have since included adults. I enjoy working with students of all ages and levels of experience, as they all bring something unique to their lessons and challenge me to adapt to their varied styles of learning.

My daughter was shy at the beginning, but Stephen was able to warm her up and get her talk. Even she didn't learn a lot, she is excited about the new class coming next week.
Stephen is good at teaching her in different conversations.
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.
