Helping Kids Make Great Music
Your child will feel like a rock star with our drum lessons because they are both educational and fun. They will be playing the songs they love while getting the fundamental benefits of learning the drums.
Drums are a wonderful way to introduce your child to the world of music. Studying rhythm has been proven to improve problem solving skills, self expression, and creativity. Kids with musical ability typically have better grades and self confidence.
Even if they are already involved in school music programs, the individual attention from our lessons together will accelerate their learning curve for technique and musical concepts. This can lead to higher seating placements in their school orchestra and extracurricular opportunities in honor orchestras.
My name is Stefano Ashbridge and I love sharing the art of playing the drums. Over the years, I have taught hundreds of private and group lessons to students of all ages and skill levels.
No problem if your child doesn’t have a drum set. I have everything we need to get started. Our lessons take place in a fully equipped studio with a patient and positive learning environment and flexible hours.
The lessons can be recorded so your child can track their progress over time and develop the discipline of reaching their goals. Parents are welcome to sit in on the lessons.

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.Matthew Ramirez
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 Gonzalez
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, patient and professional. In a very short time I felt confident 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
I 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 Rocks!!Hayley Mac Leay
Stefano is the only reason I still play drums. He has really helped me focus my playing and technique to be a better drummer, and musician.Chris Lemcke
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 Clift
Stefano 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.Bill Townsend
