Mark Pellegrino – Percussion Instructor
Mark has been playing drums for 35 years and he has been teaching for 26 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 starts playing every style of music. Mark’s teaching method includes trying to find what motivates the student and helping them set and develop their goals. He pushes students to take advantage of the stage at Pellegrino’s School of Music at our free jams, recitals and our band program.
