Mark Pellegrino – Drum Instructor
Mark has been playing drums for 29 years and he has been teaching off and on for 20 years. He’s been a full time teacher for the last 10 years. In the summer of 2006, Mark started Pellegrino’s School of Music & Art to try and create an environment much like what he was exposed to during his time at Berklee College of Music in Boston where he received a 2 year certificate in drumset performance. Mark has studied privately for 10 years with the likes of Jim Chapin, Kenny Arronoff, and Dave DiCenso to name a few. He has toured all over the states playing every style of music. Marks teaching method includes trying to find what motivates the student and helping them set and develop their goals. He pushes his students to take advantage of the stage at Pellegrino’s School of Music at our free jams, recitals, and our band program.
