Marcello has been a great inspiration to me as a musician not just as a drummer . His perspective helped me a lot in a period when I was stuck and could not progress. I'd say he's the perfect blend of talent, experience and fun . He's been challenging me a lot to re-think concepts I thought I already absorbed and infact I hadn't . He never missed an appointment and always noticed if he couldn't make it for the class . I remember we would listen to music a lot and he would give me records to listen and discuss during the next classes. Very often he stayed overtime, to make sure I understood correctly or if the theme we were analyzing required it. Overall I'm grateful to have met him and he's always available if I have questions for him since he left. I would definitely hire the guy. He's a great person as well as a great teacher . Just to give you some context I'm 28 y.o. and when I started studying with Marcello I could already play drums at a modest level . It is not my personal experience but I believe his personality and his method would work well also with younger students as his program is detailed and covers a wide variety of musical practices and genres (not just drums related ). Hope this was helpful to you . If you have further questions I'd be happy to answer them . Eugenio
