'Drumhead' Steve Brown - Director/Facilitator
Steve’s passion for drumming started in the mid 1970’s when he and his family traveled extensively through Southeast Asia. Visiting places like Bali, Java and Jakarta, 11 year old Steve was quickly drawn to the culture and the music - especially the infectious drumming! When the family returned to the US, Steve began taking drum lessons and has enjoyed 30 years of professional experience playing drums and percussion, writing songs, performing live and recording in the studio with Yosi & the Superdads, award winning Kids Rock Group based out of New Jersey.

Steve brings high energy and enthusiasm to every project and performance he is involved in and understands the importance of drawing in and keeping an audience. As a drum circle facilitator Steve makes the group feel comfortable and guides them to make music with skills they never knew they had!
Steve lives in Beachwood NJ and when he is not drumming he's spending time with his 5 kids and his extended family. Two of Steve's kids have special needs and Steve’s dad suffered for years with Alzheimer’s disease. Creating HeartBeats and BONK! was a natural step for Steve as it combines his corporate experience, musical background and the joy and challenges of caring for his wonderful family…
Steve is proud to endorse and play KOPF Percussion Cajons!
