Yuzi Sun is a jazz drummer and multi-instrumentalist based in Hamilton, Ont., currently a third-year student at Mohawk College. She started piano when she was 5. As a keyboardist, she played in the local Youth Symphony Orchestra. Three years later, she started drums, at which time her drumming journey began. During her high school studies and her bachelor of arts (radio and television) in China, Sun played drums with her bands in many local music festivals. It was during this time that she found great interest in rock and pop, especially K-pop. She was a drum line member of the Western Mustang Band while she did her master’s degree in professional education at Western University, performing in campus and local sports games. In 2021, she finally entered Mohawk College with the aim to be a professional drummer. By listening to many drum virtuosos such as Elvin Jones, Gary Novak, and Larnell Lewis, Sun is working hard to develop her own drumming style. She actively plays in jazz jam sessions so that she is fully immersed in the local music community. Having been trained in jazz and fusion ensembles, she is now preparing for her graduation recital in March of 2024.
