My Musical Life Story...

 

     

Santo was born in Sicily and spent part of his childhood in New Jersey.

 In the early 90’s he began studying with the composer and drummer Max Biaselli

 

Graduated from the Liceo Artistico P. Klee in Genoa, Italy, which along with academics, also specialized in visual communication and design.

 In 2000 he continued his music studies at the Modern Music Academy in Milan.

He took private lessons with the renowned Italian drummer, Agostino Marangolo (Rome).

In 2010 he attended the Collective Music College in Manhattan.

 

In addition to pursuing his own studies, he’s also been a music teacher since 1998 at several institutions:

Liceo Scientifico Cassini, Genoa

Accademia Artistica Sinafe, Genoa

Città Della Musica, in Genoa

Farrington Music in Burlington, NJ. 

Santo  is member of the Sabian Education Network and he has been judge in many international drum conest like "Hit Like a Girl Contest"

 

Conducted master classes in percussion at CDM and PercFest (2013-2014-2015), Italy which is an annual international musical festival and learning symposium.

 

He’s worked with many Italian jazz, latin, pop and rock bands and theatrical production companies.

He’s also collaborated with Franz di Cioccio (PFM), Emanuele Dabbono ( 5 Platinum record in 2016/ 2017) and numerous well-known artists of the Italian music scene.

 

He was dubbed the “Master of Musical Sensitivity” in the February 2012 issue of “Drum” magazine.

He is an artist endorser for both Rotodrum and Saluda cymbals.

Besides being a member of Emanuele Dabbono projects, Santo F. also currently works with the Terrence Brown Trio, Calomito, Clark Kent Phone Booth and the Italian-Argentine band Aparecidos, which tours Europe.
