My name is Steve Powell and I'm a drummer and teacher living in Brisbane. I have over 20 years playing experience and have taught drums to adults and children for more than 10 years. I am also the author of Beat Roots - a collection of R&B/soul, funk and rock drum beat transcriptions from 1960s-1980s.

Because I love many styles of music, I aim to give my students experience in and appreciation of these styles as well as teaching them correct drumming technique.

All lessons are catered to suit different ages, relevant music genres and personalities! Below is a general overview of what will be covered in lessons:

  • Correct drumming technique (hands and feet), Drum Rudiments and stick control
  • Knowledge of all styles of drumming including: Jazz, Rock, Funk, R&B, Reggae, Latin and many more
  • Reading of proper drum notation, rhythms, beats and charts
  • Knowledge of drums including: drum sound, tuning, famous drummers, history and much more
