Hi, I’m Alberto Netto.

I’m a Brazilian drummer living in Boston, and Assistant Professor of Percussion at Berklee College of Music. I started playing drums at the age of 12, and by 15 was playing nightclubs in Santos and Sao Paulo. In 1989 I moved to the States to attend Berklee–and I’ve been active on the Brazilian music and jazz scene since. I’m the author of Brazilian Rhythms for Drum Set and Percussion (Berklee Press / Hal Leonard).
