Lawrence Chen (lead Electric Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Beginner Drums)

Lawrence's love of music started when he sat down to study piano at the age of four. Five instruments and a decade later, Lawrence found his true musical passion - the guitar. He hasn't put it down since.

He is currently the lead electric guitarist at National Community Church's Lincoln Theater and Barracks Row PM campuses, one of the DMV area's largest churches, and has also played in many of D.C.'s top music venues including 9:30 Club and Echostage. While he was at Westmont College, he earned a Minor in music and recorded electric guitar in a live album with the Chapel Band. Since then, Lawrence has been a music director and electric guitarist at multiple churches throughout Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, Dallas, and the DMV area.

Lawrence believes that music teaches valuable life lessons that go beyond just learning notes on a page - listening intently to those around you, building trust in teams, analytical creativity, and personal confidence. When he isn't teaching (or shredding on the guitar), you can find Lawrence cooking delicious gourmet meals and helping startup founders launch their companies. He is excited to be a part of the Blue Feather family, and is looking forward to helping you see that you too can shred on the guitar!
