Bio

Hello! I'm Steve. I live in Albuquerque NM, and I've been playing music for almost 30 years. I have years of experience playing music in both live and recording environments. I've shared a stage with major acts such as 30 Seconds to Mars, Alien Ant Farm and Adema.

Hello! I'm Steve. I live in Albuquerque NM, and I've been playing music for almost 30 years. I have years of experience playing music in both live and recording environments. I've shared a stage with major acts such as 30 Seconds to Mars, Alien Ant Farm and Adema.

I've taught a couple of students here at my home in the past for brief periods and thoroughly enjoyed the experience of sharing my craft and watching them develop their skills. I enjoy helping people overcome their own hurdles, and I completely understand how frustrating learning an instrument can be, especially when trying to learn on your own. I'd love to hear from anyone looking for a personal experience to help them achieve their musical goals.

I have experience with all things related to drumming on all levels including rudiments, reading music, and developing limb interdependence, coordination, strength building and helping to develop your "internal clock" by demonstrating how to properly practice with a metronome. I have the similar skills pertaining to guitar which would be chords, chord building, scales/modes and overall technique. I would like to further my own knowledge base regarding music theory over all, but can certainly teach you how to start to read music, notation, learning the staff, key signatures, scales etc.

If your young and just starting out and need assistance or have been playing for years and just need to fine-tune specific areas please don't hesitate to contact me, I'd love to sit down with you if you're in the Albuquerque area or would like to do online tutoring. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Drums

I have been playing drum set since age 8, and have extensive experience playing drums in both live and recording situations. I can assist you in learning to read music, to develop your technique, endurance, speed, coordination, and internal clock to give you the knowledge to be comfortable and confident behind the kit.

Excellent Tutor

Steven is a professional, friendly, and extremely knowledgeable tutor. He is patient and focuses on what really matters. I will definitely be doing more sessions—highly recommended!

Erik, 42 lessons with Steven

Patient and encouraging tutor

My son started taking lessons with Steve after bit of a break. Steve is a wonderful teacher, makes drumming fun and is working with him on his technique and skills. Steve has gotten him excited all over again and explains the concepts well. Getting a lesson summary from Steve at the end of the class is a bonus, so I know how my son is doing and what he needs to focus on. We are really happy we found an excellent teacher.
