can't say enough nice things about Stefano and
his teaching methods. He is patient and very educated
in the art of drumming. My son learned to play
the double bass pedal during his first lesson.
No one teaches that! Stefano is kind and reliable
and you will learn the basics of drumming as well
as share in the love he has for music. Stefano
is so understanding and always helpful. It makes
a world of difference when you have a teacher
that genuinely wants the best for their students.
Stefano is definitely the one to go to. He's a
true drummer." Shanna
you are really an excellent teacher. You expain
things clearly, but if you think Ididn't understand
you, you ask clarifying questions so you know
if I'm on board or not. You allow give and take
in our exchanges of experiences, anecdotes and
so on. I like that.
really am impressed with your quiet confidence.
You know what you're doing, but keep your ego
totally in check. Lastly, you're patient. You
keep us on track, but you always allow and encourage
spontaneity. I feel very comfortable with you
and the way you are leading me forward. Thank
you so much." Chris
showed up with no experience drumming and Stefano
tailored a study program for me that got me playing
my favorite songs within a few weeks. Thanks Stefano!"
is a great, fun teacher for all levels of drummers.
I started out as an intermediate drummer not knowing
what to expect, and I've gotten a lot better since
then. He has helped me to improve my timing. I love
a challenge and if you're looking for one, Stefano
is the guy to go to." Frederick
"I went in knowing nothing about drumming,
and I am now a member of my high school varsity
drumline. Stefano makes learning fun, and is always
available by phone or email if I have any questions."
my first drum lesson, I immediately knew that Stefano
was the right teacher for the job. His patience
and qualifications were impressive and though I
didnt know much about what to expect from
a drum teacher, I felt that his positive nature
and his enthusiasm for teaching would make a comfortable
learning environment for me
and I was right.
The learning tools he supplies are most helpful,
and it comforts me to know he is only an email away
if I have any questions to which he always responds
in a timely manner. His studio is quaint, but well
equipped and is among a number of other music studios
which I have to say is pretty awesome. Its
like being part of a really cool club.
Its now been six weeks, and the time and attention
he has given to help me is not only exemplary and
ample, but MUCH appreciated. The fact that someone
cares as much as I do in helping me/pushing me to
achieve my goal is truly priceless. Thank you, Stefano."
"Stefano has the unique insight to perceive
the level of your drumming and adjust his teaching
in order to advance you faster and more effectively."
"I think that Stefano is a great teacher- not
just a great drum teacher but a wonderful teacher
and a terrific person. He is always prepared, intuitive,
patient and professional and seems to tailor the
drum lessons to my individual needs. In a very short
time I felt confident and competent on the drums.
Knowing how to drum properly has made drumming more
enjoyable than I could have ever imagined and I
sincerely could not have done it without the tutelage
of Stefano." Todd Gray
is an amazing drum teacher. He teaches in such a
manner that is not threatening or condescending,
yet uplifting and positive. He is patient, yet understands
that the student wants to just hammer away and make
lots of noise so he mixes the basics with permission
to let loose.
He is also very individualistic in his teaching,
meaning he really focuses on what you are asking
and where you need help. For instance, I sometimes
learn best by watching, so if I ask him to show
me something he readily does. Or, if I am thinking
way ahead, such as how I may use a flam in a song,
he doesn't get impatient and say, "we'll get
to that," but instead, answers the question
and talks about how it will be worked into our lessons.
I highly recommend Stefano to anyone who wants to
learn drums the right way." Bill
