About Our Founder & Team

Our Founder Jaedyn Yu Has Over A Decade Of Teaching Experience With Over 300 Drum Students.

She graduated from UCLA and studied from the best drummers in the world like Juan Carlito Mendoza (Guitar Center Drumoff Champion 2012), Glen Crosby (Santa Clara Vanguard Drum Coach), Wojtek Deregowski, Nathan Eby (Los Angeles Philharmonic and UCLA Drumline), and Mitchell Peters (UCLA).


World-wide Performance Experience with International Artists and Bands

In addition to teaching, Jaedyn also performed in the best venues across the world including the Hollywood Bowl, Disney Concert Hall, and Clockenflap (Hong Kong’s largest music festival). She had collaborated with international artists such as SISTAR,, and U-KISS and toured in the United States, Africa, Mainland China, Thailand, Japan, and other Asian countries and is now actively promoting quality drum education in Hong Kong and across the world.


Creating The Next Generation Of Creative Drummers

Jaedyn brings a wealth of experience from teaching at various music centers in Hong Kong prior to founding the Hong Kong Drum Academy. She has observed a common issue in many centers: hiring teachers solely based on their Grade 8 certification without ensuring teaching quality or providing standardized materials. To address this concern, Jaedyn is committed to continuous training for our teachers, regular check-ins to monitor student progress, and empowering parents with effective strategies to support their children's musical development.

Our goal is to cultivate the finest drummers who not only possess technical prowess but also appreciate the true essence of music and play with creativity.

By emphasizing both a strong foundation and encouraging individual expression, we are reshaping the way drum lessons are conducted.



With over 7 qualified teachers at Hong Kong Drum Academy, our team is committed to creating drum lessons they would have loved to attend!
