I am currently a member of Stephen’s web site and have been for a few months now. I can tell you that the lessons I have been able to participate in, whether live or in The Vault, have proven to be extremely helpful to me. You see I am a 33 year (NOW RETIRED) Army Veteran. I have always been fascinated with and loved the drums. I have been an avid air drummer my whole life. Turns out that when I sat behind my first kit and turned the air drums into reality, I feel I actually had a knack for it. Bought my first drum set in November 2012. So even though I loved playing along to songs, I soon realized after stumbling on some lessons from Stephen that I had no real clue what I was doing. Sure I could play a simple beat, but did I actually know what I was playing? NO I DID NOT. Stephen and the lessons on SDS are a HUGE help, especially the way that he personally teaches and explains the lessons. I can honestly say that I have learned so much, from the basics on up. I still have such a long way to go, but thanks to Stephen, I actually truly know (most of the time) what it is I am actually playing and counting. THANKS BROTHER!!!
