Meet Your Teacher

Stefano Ashbridge, drum instructor

Hi. My name is Stefano Ashbridge and I love sharing the joy of playing the drums. I have spent the last 30 years studying and developing successful teaching strategies that will guide your child through their drumming journey and have fun learning the music they love.

I began teaching early into my drumming studies when my teacher asked me to fill in when he wasn’t available. My love of teaching grew right alongside my love of drumming, so it has always been easy to relate to my student’s frustrations and passion for this instrument.  I have studied the drums with William Lyons, Mark Schulman (Pink, Foreigner), and Zoro (Lenny Kravitz, New Edition).

I have played the drums on albums and toured internationally with a variety of artists, and even won the “Electronica Drummer of The Year” at the L.A. Music Awards. I have appeared on DrumChannel.com as a guest panelist and was asked to judge the Hit Like a Girl contest. More importantly though, I have coached hundreds of drummers of all ages and skill levels. Nothing makes me more proud than when my students play their first show, record an album, or go on tour. Let’s talk about how I can help your child with their drumming.
