‘When any student comes to the studio we always start by defining the vision and goals of the student and focus our time around this, as every student is very different in what they want to accomplish. We will design a unique plan of action based on your individual goals.’

Everything he teaches is related in a real-life context, and I always leave feeling like I’ve improved in my competence with the drumset, as well as just feeling invigorated in general. Highly, highly recommended!”

“For the past three years, I have been travelling over 700 km to meet with Chris on a regular basis at his studio in Toronto. I always find his knowledge sharing compelling, and his passion contagious. Chris makes learning challenges seems natural and enjoyable. He has the ability to combine the concepts of drumming with the application towards daily living. Highly recommended, and well worth the drive!”
“Chris Lesso is a true guru of the drums, and teaches with a passion and energy that is inspiring. His knowledge and skill allows him to provide strong fundamentals instruction, master-class techniques, and explore a wide range of musical styles in his teaching.
I have been playing the drums for 13 years, and working with Chris for the last 2 years. From completely reworking the way I move my arm, wrists and fingers, to advanced rhythm techniques and groove development, he is an expert craftsman and wonderful person. Chris has a passion, excitement and dedication for drumming and for teaching that you just won’t find anywhere else. Bottom line, he will make you and better player, and you will love working with him!”
