Inspired by his uncle, SteveÕs love of drumming began at age 7. It grew stronger in school bands, gigging with local bands, and was fostered through lessons with Master Percussionist, Jim McCall. Steve went on to build his extensive skills on road tours, as a session drummer, and as a percussionist in the United States Marine Corps Band. He spent 15 years with the Washington Redskins Marching Band drum line and has played with popular regional bands and offered private drum instruction for over 20. His unique teaching technique offers students a chance to experience the power of music as they build their own skill and love of drumming.
