Biography

I'm Robertinho Marçal, drummer for 27 years. I studied with some of the best drummers in the world. In 2015 in Chicago I studied with: Steve Smith, Dave Weckl, Jogo Mayer and Benny Greb. Two years later I was in Boston at the Berklee Colege of Music, where I took classes with Dave Dicenzo and Henrique de Almeida. For 5 years I have been touring with the brazilian legend Raimundo Fagner doing shows all over the country. I also help drummers through my courses and free content on the internet, to develop their own voice on the instrument, through the union of technique and feeling.
