Teaching since:


I'm Steve and I teach drums lessons to anyone who is ready to learn! I've been teaching private lessons from a young age and grew up in my parent's lesson studio of 60 students. I began teaching beginner level when I was 16. I continued teaching when I went to Millikin University studying with Brian Justison and touring with the PASIC award-winning Percussion Ensemble. I earned a degree in Commercial Music in 2013 and got into the music industry while playing part time. I moved to the Nashville area around two years ago and have continued playing in bands and working in the music business.

I can offer a perspective from a record label executive and classically trained percussionist. I'd love to meet students of any age looking to kickoff a lifetime of fun with the drums and other types of percussion instruments like keyboard (marimba/vibraphone), orchestral, hand drums, drum machines, and more.

I value gradual progress and having fun with your instrument. Let's learn together!
