Massimo Russo & Paul Hose Master Class

Massimo Russo & Paul Hose Master Class


After the success of a recent class with Massimo Russo on the 2nd March, I am happy to announce that he will be visiting us again on the 22nd June. This time the class will cover soloing around the drum kit and how to approach things in a more melodic way. Not only should we be excited about Massimo, but we will be also welcoming a long time friend and great drummer Paul Hose.

 Two of the best world-class drummers in one room at the same time- what is not to like?

The class will last for two hours and be held at ISM Academy and cost you the same as before- Just £30

Please join us for this incredible insight to soloing around the drum kit.


Massimo Russo

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”.

Paul Hose

Paul Hose has been a professional drummer for over 20 years. His career covers a wide spectrum of work; theatre to festivals and clinics to Private teaching. Paul’s career is colorful and diverse, to say the least.

He was taught by several notable private teachers in the UK before going on to study with Dom Famularo and Jim Chapin, who Paul studied with for 6 years. Indeed a highlight for Paul was playing and speaking at Jim’s memorial at the Paramount Theatre in New York City. He will soon graduate as an Associate of Trinity College.

As an educator, Paul has taught in state schools and music institutions in the the UK and in Singapore. He also owns MLC Academy, a music school based in Nottingham with subsidiaries in France and New York.



Thank you again to the fantastic Massimo Russo for providing us with his drumming excellence.
