Do you ever get songs stuck in your head? Some people seem to get annoyed by that, but I love it when that happens! My name is Stefano Ashbridge and music has always been a major part of my life. I truly love sharing it with my students.
I’ve been through the challenges and frustrations that come with learning the drums. I have spent the last 24 years developing successful methods and solutions that will help you improve quickly and have fun learning the music you love. (I have written about my philosophy here). I began teaching early into my drumming studies when my teacher asked me to fill in when he wasn’t available.
That made it easy for me to relate to my students and my love of teaching grew alongside my love of drumming. I have studied the drums with William Lyons, Mark Schulman (Pink, Foreigner), and Zoro (Lenny Kravitz, New Edition).
As a professional drummer, I have toured and recorded with a variety of artists and won the “Electronica Drummer of The Year” at the L.A. Music Awards. I started my private teaching practice in Los Angeles when I got off the road with my touring bands.
Since then, I have gone on to coach hundreds of students of all ages and skill levels. Nothing makes me prouder than when they play their first show, record an album, or go on tour. Let’s talk about how I can help you with your drumming.
