Drums Lessons

I believe music comes from the heart and soul. Technique and rudimental understanding is the foundation to be able to translate how you're feeling with what you're playing - and that's what I teach. Drums are a very physical and mental instrument and learning to conquer the balance of using every part of your body to play music is a beautiful thing.
I'm here to show students how to internalize music and how to make it their own.
I play from the heart and I preach what I play wholeheartedly. Solid foundations in fundamental sound and technique are my main focus and I’m HUGE on showmanship.
I truly love what I do and I would love the opportunity to show students the beauty in the madness that we call music and how to play with emotion.

Overview

Hey! My name is Christian Lee, I'm a local drummer from LA who has been playing for 9 years as of December 27th - and yes, I know the exact date because that day would change my life forever.
I grew up in Southern California mostly listening to Rock and Metal but always had an ear open to new styles to add to my own sound. I started formal drum training in 2010 with my first instructor and now best friend, Brian Jones, who made such a positive impact on my life by teaching me and guiding me in my music journey at an early age. I then went on to join the Advanced Jazz Band at Vista Murrieta High School where we won 1st and 3rd place in some local Jazz competitions and I received a scholarship to the Idyllwild Jazz Camp. Sadly, I could not attend because I decided to graduate High School early and pursue a deeper education in music by going to the Musicians Institute in Hollywood at age 17. I graduated in June 2015 with my Associates in Drum Performance at the ripe old age of 18.
After graduating, I started to play shows around SoCal and ended up spending most of 2016 touring with the bands, Here Lies the Hero and RVLS.
I've learned a lot in my travels and studies and I'm eager to share the passion with you!

Gear

Recording

Videos

The key to knowing what you're doing right and wrong is to not just hear yourself, but SEE yourself!

Watching videos of your performance can really help with the overall progression of your playing.

I have a GoPro ready to capture the moments you create in the studio so you can always see how much you're growing behind the drums!
