My name is Stefano Ashbridge. I began teaching the drums almost
twenty years ago when my teacher at the time asked me to fill
in when he wasn't available to teach. That allowed me to pass
on my love of the drums at a relatively early age.
then, I have gone on to teach hundreds of private and group
students of all ages and skill levels, and I am also involved
with Hudson Music's Teacher Integration Program. I have developed
a teaching method that allows each student to reach their musical
goals, while having fun learning the music they love.
I have studied with noted drummers Zoro (Lenny Kravitz, New
Edition) and Mark Schulman (Cher, Pink). I am located in the
Los Angeles area where I am also involved in the music scene
there as a session and live drummer, having played with such
artists as Brad Wilson of Stone and Grammy nominee Derek Jordan.
I was also awarded "Electronica Drummer of The Year"
at the L.A. Music Awards.
