Biography of our Judges
Danny Chen, Edwin Boon, Vincent Choo
Danny started his musical journey with Yamaha Electone at the age of 7yo. Along the way he learned and picked up other instruments. His interest in drums began when he started playing in Church. Since then he was exposed to various performing platforms, from youth concerts, charity to musical productions.
While in college, he was approached to be involved in music education and teaching drums. He found passion in teaching and began to explore effective and appropriate teaching pedagogy. Eventually he completed his Rockschool drums grade 8. Later, he pursued and attained Rockschool teaching diplomas and was coaching others. His involvement in Rockschool led him to organize Malaysia’s first drum camp in 2014.
Having taught for 20 years, he had the privilege to pass on his knowledge to equip and train drum tutors and students. His passion in teaching and love for music brought him to various places conducting music workshops, camps and seminars. His vision is to see the younger generations of musicians to be properly trained and educated.
He founded the School of Drums in 2014 with the vision to provide and nurture drum teachers to excel in teaching careers. At the same time providing quality music education to the community. He takes pride in his professionalism and constantly benchmark his processes and performance to ensure high quality teaching and outcome.
In 2019, LBS Music World and Dixon Drums Company endorsed him as Dixon Artist for his recognition and contribution to drumming education. He continues to deliver education that inspired and motivated drummers to be the best of themselves.
I'm an enthusiastic drum educator and passionate YouTube drummer based inMalaysia. I began playing the drums at the age of 13, and currently perform musical concert tours with local artists. I also feature as guest players among ensemble groups, gig performances, and wedding performances. Also conduct online drum lessons and workshops for young aspiring drummers.
