About

MASSIMO RUSSO is a young drummer and percussionist. He graduated with honours at the Conservatory “F.Torrefranca” of Vibo Valentia.

A very talented musician, drummer, teacher and clinician, he conducted several seminars in Italy, France, Germany and England collaborating with great word-class musicians as Daniel Schmitt and Dom Famularo. (L.)

Massimo’s talent lies in his natural versatility, in his ability in understanding, without hesitations, the specific sound in the wide range of musical styles,even thanks to an excellent hands technique.

COLLABORATIONS with Dom Famularo, a successful internationally renowned artist (awarded more than once as the best drummer teacher and clinician in the world) started in 2010 when Massimo went to the U.S.A. to attend drum lessons with him. From that moment onwards Dom Famularo saw in Massimo the ideal teacher to create the only Italian “Wizdom Drumshed School”.

Wizdom Drumshed School

wizdom

WIZDOM DRUMSHED SCHOOL®  is not just the drum school brand created by Dom Famularo and his students all over the world, but it is the guarantee of a high quality training method that is recognized internationally.

THIS METHOD, taught in every Wizdom school, is based on a technique section, a reading section and a drum section. In every school there are video cameras, to record lessons, and mirrors. Each Wizdom teacher becomes a spokesman for the most important techniques learned by Dom Famularo during his brilliant career.

There are six Wizdom Drumshed Schools ® in the world and they can boast of having many students; most of them are ready to go abroad to attend Wizdom teacher’s lessons.
