What People are Saying

“I have been playing drums and music for close to 10 years, with lots of live playing experience. With that being said, I knew there were a lot of holes to fill in for my playing and especially my practicing/discipline. I also wanted to study jazz. Chris is a patient, flexible, and talented musician and drummer and knows how to keep the lessons fun and interesting. He knows how to design the perfect lesson tailored to each students’ needs, and did I mention that he is also an incredible drummer and jazz player himself! I am eternally grateful to have found Chris as a teacher and wholeheartedly recommend him to any and all levels of drummer or aspiring drummer.”

Robert C.  Anaheim, CA

“I’m a college student who wanted to learn an instrument for a hobby. I’ve tried a few before but never really got into it. Chris made me love not only the drums but also music in general! His passion for drumming is noticeable in the way he teaches his students. He is very patient and he prepares an individual lesson for each one depending on their learning capacity. Whichever level you are at, makes sure to take his class! You are sure to gain a lot and have a great time!”
Kim C. Lakewood, CA

“I had a wonderful experience taking lessons from Chris Lemp at his Dynamic Drum School. “Dynamic” is really the word! Though I’ve been playing for 20 years, I wanted to work on the basics, and Chris expertly developed an approach tailored to fit my needs. The materials and exercises he introduced me to have proved invaluable, and his teaching style is affable and relaxed — good for beginners or advanced players. 

Highly recommended!​” 

Ben Richardson, Los Angeles, CA

“Chris, I just wanted to pass on my gratitude to you for all the progress we have made the last few months. Your guidance has given me the inspiration and a belief that I can be a very good drummer. I like your overall approach to teaching drumming skills. I especially like how you break the instruction down into smaller pieces to make things easier to learn. Thanks again and please feel free to use me as a reference as I would be more than happy to recommend you to anyone that is interested in learning how to play the drums. Sincerely, JK.”

JK - Newport Beach, CA

“My daughter Kayleen is 11 years old.  She’s been taking lessons for the past few months with Chris.  Each time I take her to class I feel at ease, knowing that she’s in good hands. I love to hear her play the drums with him and hear her laughter and joy.  Chris has found the most amazing techniques to teach our daughter, he realized that she is very visual and he came up with a way to compliment her style of learning.  I recommend him to any parents, as I have seen first hand how good he is with kids. He finds a way to work with each child, so they can learn to love music.”
