This Is Not "Online Drum Lessons".
This Is An Online Drum School.
It's not that we're better than everyone else. We're not. It's that we're different than everyone else. Ever felt that way?

While the rest surf around and watch random online drum lessons, we dig in deep on specific problem areas in our drumming. While others have general "resolutions", we have specific goals. And we hit them. Daily.

Others aim to just hit the target. We aim to hit the bulls eye dead center every time.

Others are overwhelmed. We're on a mission. Others think that value comes from "more more more". We know value comes from a deeper focus on less material. The right material, the right time, the right person.

Others think learning from 184 different artists is fun...we just find it confusing. Others follow the crowd chasing fun "licks" and "tricks". We seek to learn complete concepts that will help us become better musicians.

Some will call us crazy. We just call ourselves drummers.

Hear from some of our favorite peeps...the students!
"I’ve been bouncing around for a while, searching for the right drum teacher for lessons. When all hope was lost, I found Stephen’s lessons on YouTube. And wow, what a difference in my playing ever since I signed up for lessons at StephensDrumShed.com."
Annaliese Bronz
"In the time I have been a member of The Shed (about a year), I can honestly say that I've learned more memorable, versatile and useful drum info and techniques than all my former years and teachers combined! Stephen presents the lessons in a way that just makes sense! He is super talented player/teacher, and most importantly, it’s obvious that he really cares about his students!"
Christo Young
"Simply put, in fifteen years of drumming, no DVD, lesson, magazine article or book has helped me more than the Shed."

About "The Drum Better Daily" Program
Let me ask you a couple of quick questions...
Do you want to see your drumming grow on a daily basis? To have productive practice times every day? Do you want to know beyond a shadow of a doubt that you're working on exactly what you need to be working on? Want a teacher that is 100% devoted to seeing you succeed?

If your answer was "yes" to the above questions, then I think you are a prime candidate for the Drum Better Daily Program. I don't just provide you high quality drum lessons...I lay out a structure and path for you to follow so that you can see transformational change in your playing. Personal, guided, and structured for your success. No matter what level of player you are and no matter what you want to learn on the drums, I provide the lessons and the system that you need to see success.
What makes Drum Better Daily different?
"I've tried online lessons and they didn't work. I simply didn't know what to work on or how to work on it!"

It's not your fault that you're not seeing progress. That you don't know what to work on. The online firehose of information is just too much. 

It's time to try a new way. Instead of just providing online drum lessons, SDS is an online drum school. The engine of the school is our unique DBD system. It's personalized, methodical, & results oriented.
A Personal Note
Tired of the Firehose Method of drum lessons?
Hey...Stephen here. I totally understand what you're going through. Been there, done that...no thanks. With all of the information available, it can begin to feel like a virtual firehose...overwhelming. The fact that you're drowning in that wave of random information is not your fault. With the current digital landscape, we have 24/7 access to everything, but no game plan for our own personal needs and desires. The Drum Better Daily program is a new chance for you to use a proven system to help shut off the firehose for good so you can see progress in your drumming. It's time for you to join the new school of drummers.
I have heard the same complaints and questions for years...
