ABOUT HONG KONG DRUM ACADEMY
Hong Kong Drum Academy is a specialized drum academy in Hong Kong offering quality drum lessons for students of all ages. We aim to help our students achieve their musical goals while helping them grow their love and passion for music. Enrolling more than 400 unique students in the last few years, we attract drummers from local or international schools, music scenes, and hobbyists.
In addition to private lessons in our Sai Ying Pun and Kwun Tong locations, we actively host drum workshops, after-school drum classes, or holiday drum camps at both international and local schools in Hong Kong.
ABOUT JAEDYN YU
Founder | Music Program Director | Drum Instructor
Jaedyn's extensive performance and teaching experiences started while she was a teenager in the US. She graduated from UCLA and studied with the best drummers around the world like Juan Carlito Mendoza (Guitar Center Drumoff Champion 2012), Glen Crosby (Santa Clara Vanguard Drum Coach), Wojtek Deregowski, and Mitchell Peters (UCLA). Her musical journey began when she started playing piano at age 3 and percussion at age 11.
With over a decade of teaching experience, she has now taught over 300 students in the US, Hong Kong, and around the globe.
In addition to teaching, she also performed in the best venues across the world including the Hollywood Bowl and Disney Concert Hall. Some international artists she collaborated with include SISTAR, G.na, and U-KISS. In her previous and current bands, she also toured and performed in the United States, Africa, Mainland China, and other Asian countries. However, she realized her main passion is teaching and so she is now settled in Hong Kong and founded Hong Kong Drum Academy to provide quality drum education to students in Hong Kong and online.
She has obtained the Rockschool (Drums) Grade 8 Certification, ABRSM (Piano) Grade 8, and ABRSM (Music Theory) Grade 5. She can teach in English, Cantonese, and Mandarin Chinese.
She is now settled in Hong Kong and can take a limited number of students in person and online.

Creative, Fun & Musical
Not every student has the same learning style and so the teaching methodology is tailored towards each student's goals and capabilities. We can work together to prepare for drum exams or just learn to play to your favorite songs and explore new bands together!
Unlike traditional score-based music lessons, we provide students with applicable and fun musical ideas. Students are equipped with the skills to improvise and jam in order to enjoy the wonderful world of music.
We create individualized lesson plan and expose students with a huge variety of musical styles from all over the world. We believe that drumming is a way for people to connect, express, create, entertain and share.
Our Academy’s primary goal is to inspire students to enjoy music, create their own style and connect with people from different backgrounds.
