Degrees and Certifications:

Stephen C Tumblin

I was born and raised in St. Charles Parish where I graduated from Destrehan High in 2008. My musical journey began at the age of 4 on a tiny toy drumset and it has not stopped since. I attended both the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and Loyola University of New Orleans where I studied and received multiple degrees in percussion music performance. 

As a performer, I had the amazing opportunity to march in the inaugural All-American Marching Band in 2008 and the Spirit of Atlanta Drum and Bugle Corps in 2009 and 2010. As an educator, I have taught at numerous high school band programs across southern Louisiana as a percussion instructor/director. Prior to my position at Albert Cammon, I played professionally with groups such as the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, The Willie Green Project, Latino Pulse, and DPHRNTSTRKS.

My professional affiliations include membership with the National Association for Music Educators (NAfME), the Louisiana Music Educators Association (LMEA), and the Percussive Arts Society (PAS).

In my free time, I enjoy writing/arranging music and practicing various different instruments. When I'm not doing that, I am spending time with my "pup" Riley Roux.
