Darren Criss » Biography
Growing up in San Francisco, Criss played a variety of instruments including violin, guitar, piano, and drums. He played drums in a small band with his brother Chuck (now member of indie band Freelance Whales) before he went on to pursue his acting degree at the University of Michigan.
In his senior year of college, Criss and his friends created a Harry Potter musical parody entitled, A Very Potter Musical as a fun project for their classmates, friends and other Harry Potter fans.
