Steve aims to create a fun learning environment that keeps students engaged and interested in drumming and music. The aim for study with Steve is to achieve the students musical goals.

Steve wants to teach students exactly what they want to learn; whether it is a certain song, or particular piece of music, or perhaps a new style or technique that the student is interested in.
