Since 2011, Carter McLean has held down the drum chair at Broadway’s longest running show, The Lion King. During that time McLean has enjoyed a fruitful sponsorship with Ludwig to, a partnership with ProMark which resulted in a signature stick, and in 2019, a Hal Leonard instructional book, Drumset Concepts & Creativity: Find Your Unique Voice on the Drumset, which became the fastest selling drum book in history. Having worked with artists like Charlie Hunter, Victor Wooten, Anthony Hamilton, Bernie Worrell (Parlament Funkadelic), and Fred Wesley (James Brown), McLean’s approach to the instrument and unique blend of expertise has positioned him as one of today’s top drummers, and most effective instructors.

Carter McLean is what sports writers call a ‘multi-threat’. Along with playing some serious drums, he also plays tabla, guitar, bass and piano. In addition, he’s a composer, arranger and synth programmer.” –Modern Drummer

Carter McLean has some of the best hands, feet and ears in drumming. He also possesses an uncommon amount of musical common sense. Any drummer will be the wiser for having checked this out.” –Peter Erskine (Weather Report)

“I absolutely love how Carter so unobtrusively focuses on THE most important aspect : playing MUSIC! Bravo!” – –Vinnie Colaiuta (Frank Zappa / Sting)
