What our students have to say

"I can say without a doubt that my 3 years studying at the Kosa academy and Kosa International Percussion Workshop with Aldo Mazza and John Diraimo gave me the tools I needed to be prepared for Musician's Institute in Los Angeles. My reading, my technique, my different grooves, my song form, my classic drum method ( book) and the last but not the least, the passion, the désire and the hapiness you have taught as you shared your knowledge. Long life to Kosa and thank you again Aldo"

Daniel Vézina
Los Angeles

"During my time studying at Kosa Academy with Aldo Mazza and all of the teachers that I had the opportunity to work with greatly improved my understanding of, and ability on the drum set. But more than that, it increased my overall appreciation of music as a whole and taught me about the way that drums contribute to music. Aldo's passion and dedication are evident in all aspects of the school. The resources that are easily available, the facilities, the breadth of genres that each student is exposed to and the various intensive workshops all contribute to an enriching and enjoyable experience. I am grateful to him for providing such an excellent environment to learn about music, and in particular drumming."
