Miles Teller 'Had About Three Weeks' To Learn Jazz on The Drums for 'Whiplash'

Miles Teller is dapper as he gets all suited up for the premiere of his latest film Whiplash held at the Bing Theatre at LACMA on Monday (October 6) in Los Angeles.

The 27-year-old actor was joined at the event by his girlfriend Keleigh Sperry, as well as co-stars Melissa Benoist, Paul Reiser, J.K. Simmons, and writer/director of the flick Damien Chazelle.

Miles recently opened up about how much training went into Whiplash.

“I started playing drums when I was 15. I played in some rock bands and stuff. I took my drums with me when I moved out to New York. And then when I moved out to L.A…. I’ve always had my drum kit on standby in case some of my friends who play guitar come over, we can jam,” Miles told MovieFone. “For the movie, I never played jazz before, so I started taking lessons for four hours a day, three days a week. I think we had about three weeks. Not a whole lot of time. I was pretty nervous about not being able to do it.”

FYI: Melissa is wearing a Maiyet dress, Kurt Geiger heels, and a Karma El Khalil necklace.
