How Steve got started. As a child there was no room in the family home for a drum kit and no money for lessons, so he started by tapping out some beats on tins with pencils. Steve was a late starter, getting his first full drum kit at 18 years of age. He played around on the kit for a few years learning what he could, until the age of 21 when Steve decided (with the encouragement of others) that he would take it seriously and make it his profession. He soon realized he had a lot of hard work to do to reach a standard that would be required to be a professional musician, so he started on a committed 3-year study, practicing 5 hours every evening after work. He tried to learn as much as possible about all styles of music and taught himself to read drum music notation, discovered and studied the drum kit rudiments and listening to lots of great drummers. This study continues still today, some 35 years later and he now is making every effort to share his experience and knowledge with you on this drumming course.
