His thesis, “Āl’Riq: The Arab Tambourine,” is a monograph examining the development and performance practices of the riq in the Arab world. His research interests also include Egyptian music education following the recommendations of the First International Congress on Arab Music in Cairo, in 1932. Mr. Stottlemyer is an active member of the Society for Ethnomusicology, Percussive Arts Society and National Association for Music Education.
At Music & Arts, Mr. Stottlemyer teaches drum-set (all styles including Caribbean, Afro-Cuban and Brazilian styles), concert snare drum, rudimental snare drum (American and Scottish traditions), and hand percussion (congas, djembe, doumbek, frame drums, and tambourines).

He welcomes students of all levels, especially veterans and those with special needs.
