An avid teacher & studio musician, Nick Stecz also tours internationally with Folk-Americana troubador Leeroy Stagger. His unique approach to drumming has given him the opportunity to work with Hannah Georgas, Wanting, Colleen Brown, Dave Vertesi, Nat Jay, Daniel Huscroft, JJ Shiplett, and producer/engineer Winston Hauschild, among many other artists on Canadian airwaves.
The foundation of Nick's versatile playing style can be found somewhere between his classic rock roots, jazz masterclasses with John Riley, two years of drum corp with the Fort Henry Guard, and turning to folk-tinged singer-songwriters for melody & lyrical inspiration.
With 15+ years of drumming instruction, Nick's dynamic teaching philosophy includes a happy balance of technique, groove & interdependence around the kit while putting it all together within song-study. He teaches all styes on drumkit, group coordination, drumline & hand percussion.
Nick currently teaches privately at his studio in Vancouver, and at L&M Victoria. For information on lessons, sessions, live gigs or his new Drumline Bootcamp class, email him at the contact info listed above.
